oggz-rip - Man Page

Extract one or more logical bitstreams from an Ogg file.


oggz-rip [-o filename  | --output filename ] filename  

oggz-rip [-h  | --help ]  [-v  | --version ]  


oggz-rip extracts one or more tracks from an Ogg file.  In Ogg terminology, oggz-rip extracts one or more logical bitstreams.

For example, to extract just the Vorbis audio track from any Ogg file:

oggz-rip -c vorbis input.ogx > output.ogg      

This will removed any other tracks: Skeleton, Theora, image, etc.  The output will be a valid Ogg Vorbis I file, suitable for use on  hardware players that do not support multiplexed (ie. multi-track)  Ogg files. If the input file contains multiple Vorbis, the desired  once can be specified by serialno with the -s option.  Use oggz-info to view the serialno of each track in a file.


oggz-rip accepts the following options:

Miscellaneous options

-o filename, --output filename

Write output to the specified  filename instead of printing it to  standard output.

-h,  --help

Display usage information and exit.

-v,  --version

Output version information and exit.

Filter options

These options can be used multiple times. Pages matching ANY of  the filter options will be included into the output.

-s serialno, --serialno serialno

Output streams with given serialno.

-i index, --stream-index index

Filter by stream index. These are assigned to  streams in the order of their BOS pages,  starting at 0.

-c content-type --content-type content-type

Filter by content-type. Run oggz-known-codecs(1) for a full list of codecs known by the installed version of oggz.


Extract all bitstreams from file.ogg:

oggz rip -o output.ogg file.ogg

Extract only the Theora bitstream from file.ogv:

oggz rip -c theora -o output.ogv file.ogv
