Ogg Vorbis switches

OggEnc v0.8 (libvorbis RC2)
(c) 2001 Michael Smith <msmith@labyrinth.net.au)

Usage: oggenc [options] input.wav [...]


-Q, --quiet   * Produce no output to stderr
-h, --help     * Print this help text

-r, --raw             * Raw mode. Input files are read directly as PCM data
-B, --raw-bits=n   * Set bits/sample for raw input. Default is 16

-C, --raw-chan=n    * Set number of channels for raw input. Default is 2
-R, --raw-rate=n     * Set samples/sec for raw input. Default is 44100

-b, --bitrate  * Choose a nominal bitrate to encode at. Attempt
                     to encode at a bitrate averaging this. Takes an
                     argument in kbps.

-s, --serial   * Specify a serial number for the stream. If encoding
                    multiple files, this will be incremented for each
                    stream after the first.

-e, --encoding    * Specify an encoding for the comments given (not
                           supported on windows)


-o, --output=fn       * Write file to fn (only valid in single-file mode)
-n, --names=string   * Produce filenames as this string, with %a, %t, %l,
                               %n, %d replaces by artist, title, album, track number,
                               and date, respectively (see below for specifying these).
                               %% gives a literal %.

-c, --comment=c     * Add the given string as an extra comment. This may be
                               used multiple times.
-d, --date        * Date for track (usually date of performance)

-N, --tracknum    * Track number for this track
-t, --title            * Title for this track

-l, --album         * Name of album
-a, --artist         * Name of artist
If multiple input files are given, then multiple instances of the previous five 
arguments will be used, in the order they are given. If fewer titles are specified 
than files, OggEnc will print a warning, and reuse the final one for the remaining files. 

If fewer track numbers are given, the remaining files will be unnumbered. For the 
others, the final tag will be reused for all others without warning (so you can specify 
a date once, for example, and have it used for all the files)


OggEnc input files must currently be 16 or 8 bit PCM WAV, AIFF, or AIFF/C files. 
Files may be mono or stereo (or more channels) and any sample rate.

However, the encoder is only tuned for rates of 44.1 and 48 kHz and while other 
rates will be accepted quality will be significantly degraded.

Alternatively, the --raw option may be used to use a raw PCM data file, which
must be 16bit stereo little-endian PCM ('headerless wav'), unless additional
parameters for raw mode are specified.

You can specify taking the file from stdin by using - as the input filename.
In this mode, output is to stdout unless an outfile filename is specified
with -o

Thx to layer3maniac for finding these switches.
