NAME

       oggTranscode - transcodes ogg files in multiple ways

SYNOPSIS

       oggTranscode [options] inputfile.ogv outputfile.ogv

DESCRIPTION

       oggTranscode  can resize an ogg file (ogg, oga or ogv) in multiple ways: It can change the
       video frame size, change datarate for the video and/or audio streams contained in the  ogg
       file and it can also change the video frame rate or audio sample rate.

       Additionally, since version 0.8 oggTranscode can add any ogg comment and png‐pictures with
       an alpha channel can be rendered into the video at any time period before  and  after  the
       resizing process.

       oggTranscode was previously called oggResize.

OPTIONS

       -s     Sets  the  size  of  the  video  frame.  The size is given as <width>x<height>.  At
              default, the video frame size keeps the same.

              Example: -s 320x240

       -d     Sets the datarate in byte per seconds for the video encoder (theora). This meant to
              be  a  upper  threshold.  So  the file may be smaller than assumed. If not set, the
              datarate of the original stream is used.

              Example: -d 1024000

       -D     Sets the datarate in byte per seconds for the audio encoder (vorbis).  If not  set,
              the datarate of the original stream is used.

              Example: -D 64000

       -f     Sets the frame rate of the video with numinator and demoninator and is the pictures
              per second. If only one number is given, the denominator is set to 1. If  not  set,
              the framerate of the original video is used.

              Example: -f 25:2

       -F     Sets  the  sample frequency (sample rate) of the audio data in Hertz. If the sample
              frequency does not match the one with the original file, resamling is invoked.

              Example: -F 32000

       -c

              Adds comments to the video (theora) stream. Comments are given by a  pair  of  type
              and  value in the form 'type=value'. More than one comment can be concatenated with
              a semicolon. It is recommended to use apostrophes as the command line may  use  the
              semicolon as a separator.

              Example: -c 'AUTHOR=yorn;DATE=03.07.09'

       -C     Adds  comments  to  the audio (vorbis) stream. Comments are given by a pair of type
              and value in the form 'type=value'. More than one comment can be concatenated  with
              a  semicolon.  It is recommended to use apostrophes as the command line may use the
              semicolon as a separator.

              Example: -C 'AUTHOR=yorn;DATE=03.07.09'

       -q     Specifies the quality for the resizing process. Values  can  be  chosen  between  1
              (best quality, with slight bluring) and 6 (worst quality). The default value is 2.

              Example: -q1

       -p     This  option  is  meant to help creating a preview of a film. The number given with
              this option defines the number of frames, that are omitted. E.g.  if a film has  24
              frames  per  second  and  -p24 is given, the newly created video shows the video 24
              times faster as only every 24th frame is used.  This option can  be  combined  with
              the  option -f to control the framerate.  With both options nice video previews can
              be created. If -p is used, the audio stream is ignored.

              Example: -p 24

       -a     Adds a picture to the video frame before it is resized.   The  expression  for  the
              picture appearances:

              <picture1.png>[,<startTime>[,<endTime>[,s]]]

              startTime in seconds - value can be a floating point.  Default startTime is 0

              endTime  in  seconds - value can be a floating point.  default endTime is -1, which
              is the end of the stream duration

              default s ist not set. If s is set, the picture slides in smoothly.

              More than one picture can be included.  To  concatenate  the  expressions  use  the
              colon.   If the appearance time overlap, the pictures are placed on one another, so
              the last picture is the uppest layer.

              Example: -a etwas.png,2,7,s:etwasneues.png,5,10

       -A     Adds a picture to the video frame after it is resized.

              The syntax follows the same expression as with option -a.

EXAMPLE

       oggTranscode -s320x240 -d512000 orig.ogv new.ogv

       Converts a the video orig.ogv to the video new.ogv with the new  frame  size  320x240.  If
       there was an audio stream within the orig.ogv file, it is copied into the new file.

       oggTranscode -D64000 -F16000 -N1 orig.ogv new.ogv

       Converts  only  the audio stream of file orig.ogv to a sample rate of 16kHz, a datarate of
       64 kBit/s and a mono channel.  The video stream is copied as is.

       oggTranscode -s300x200 -D32000 -d1024000 -A  etwas.png,2,7,s:etwasneues.png,5,10  orig.ogv
       new.ogv

       Converts  the  audio  and video stream and adds the alpha channel picture etwas.png to the
       video from second 2 to second 7 with a smooth fade in  and  fade  out.   Additionally  the
       alpha  channel picture etwasneues.png is placed on top of the video frame from second 5 to
       second 10 without any fading.
