VORBIS is in, sweet! :lol:
While looking at the specs.
That you guys didn’t try to put in all the existing codec/solutions is actually a wise decision.
Talking about mainstream:
vorbis is now mainstream
Recently ( a year or two ago, thus not so recently actually) Xiph.org renamed their containers.
ogg is allowed for vorbis but .oga is now the preferred container format/file extension.
Thanks for adding vorbis but it doesn’t stop there just yet.
The other mainstream codec/formats that I would like to see added are:
FLAC in FLAC or oga container.
It’s pretty mainstream because it’s used a lot, e.g. the European Union uses it for it’s radio broadcasts.
A lot of audiophiles use it to store their music/sound in.
With all the commotion around HTML5 video/audio element Theora is getting quite some press coverage.
It’s supported by Firefox, Opera, Google Chrome/Chromium this means it’s pretty mainstream if it’s being used for web video’s.
Video in Ogg has the following file extension: OGV
(OGV stands for Ogg Video, surprise :lol: )
Another audio codec from Xiph.org is Speex.
It is mainstream because? It is the default speech oriented codec for flash!
The last Ogg container that would be pretty mainstream would be OGX.
It can contain all sorts of ogg stuff, actually I’m having doubts about this one (OGX).
Matroska is a very flexible container that is supposed to be able to contain almost anything.
It’s fine if the Khronos group limits it’s use to the chosen audio and video formats.
It’s mainstream because? Most torrent movies have an mkv extension. This means it’s pretty mainstream. There is a lot of support from multimedia players. Programs like HandBrake use it http://handbrake.fr/details.php. Matroska mainstream: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matroska#Content_in_Matroska
There is MKS for only subtitles, MKA for audio-only files and MKV for video (+audio and subtitles).
Hopefully these formats will be added in the following version of OpenSL ES. They are all, except one container extension, pretty mainstream.
Please add all of them. Thanks for reading and supporting the community’s wishes. :mrgreen:
