       oggenc reads audio data in either raw, WAV, or AIFF format
       and encodes it into an Ogg Vorbis stream.   If  the  input
       file  "-"  is specified, audio data is read from stdin and
       the Vorbis stream is  written  to  stdout  unless  the  -o
       option  is  used to redirect the output.  By default, disk
       files are output to Ogg Vorbis files  of  the  same  name,
       with the extension changed to ".ogg".  This naming conven­
       tion can be overridden by the -o option (in  the  case  of
       one file) or the -n option (in the case of several files).
       Finally, if none of these are available, the output  file­
       name  will  be the input filename with the extension (that
       part after the final dot) replaced with ogg,  so  file.wav
       will become file.ogg


       -h, --help
              Show command help.

       -r, --raw
              Assume  input  data is raw little-endian audio data
              with no header information. If  other  options  are
              not  specified,  defaults to 44.1kHz stereo 16 bit.
              See next three options for how to change this.

       -B n, --raw-bits=n
              Sets raw mode input sample size in bits. Default is

       -C n, --raw-chan=n
              Sets  raw mode input number of channels. Default is

       -R n, --raw-rate=n
              Sets raw mode input samplerate. Default is 44100.

       --raw-endianness n
              Sets raw mode endianness to big endian (1) or  lit­
              tle endian (0). Default is little endian.

              Set bitrate management mode.  This  turns  off  the
              normal  VBR  encoding,  but  allows  hard  or  soft
              bitrate constraints to be enforced by the  encoder.
              This  mode  is  much  slower, and may also be lower
              quality. It is primarily useful for creating  files
              for streaming.

       -q n, --quality=n
              Sets encoding quality to n, between -1 (low) and 10
              (high). This is the default mode of operation, with
              a  default  quality  level of 3. Fractional quality
              levels such as 2.5 are  permitted.  Normal  quality
              range is 0 - 10.

       --resample n
              Resample  input  to  the  given sample rate (in Hz)
              before encoding. Primarily useful for  downsampling
              for lower-bitrate encoding.

              Downmix input from stereo to mono (has no effect on
              non-stereo  streams).  Useful   for   lower-bitrate

       --advanced-encode-option optionname=value
              Sets  an  advanced option. See the Advanced Options
              section for details.

       -s, --serial
              Forces a  specific  serial  number  in  the  output
              stream. This is primarily useful for testing.

       -o output_file, --output=output_file
              Write  the  Ogg  Vorbis stream to output_file (only
              valid if a single input file is specified)

       -n pattern, --names=pattern
              Produce filenames as this string, with %a, %t,  %l,
              %G  replaced  by  artist, title, album respectively
              (see below for specifying these). Also, %% gives  a
              literal %.

       -c comment, --comment comment
              Add  the  string comment as an extra comment.  This
              may be used multiple times, and all instances  will
              be added to each of the input files specified.

       -a artist, --artist artist
              Set  the  artist  comment  field in the comments to
              Sets the track number comment field  to  the  given

       -t title, --title title
              Set the track title comment field to title.

       -l album, --album album
              Set the album comment field to album.

       Note that the -a, -t, and -l options can be given multiple
       times.  They will be applied, one to  each  file,  in  the
       order  given.   If there are fewer album, title, or artist
       comments given than there are  input  files,  oggenc  will
       reuse  the  final one for the remaining files, and issue a
       warning in the case of repeated titles.


       Oggenc allows you to set  a  number  of  advanced  encoder
       options  using the --advanced-encoder-option option. These
       are intended for very advanced users only, and  should  be
       approached  with  caution.  They may significantly degrade
       audio quality if misused. Not all these options  are  cur­
       rently documented.

              Set  the  managed bitrate window to NN seconds. The
              bitrate will be forced  to  the  specified  average
              over a floating window of this length. May be frac­
              tional (e.g. 3.5)

              Set the lowpass frequency to NN kHz.


       Simplest version. Produces output as somefile.ogg:
              oggenc somefile.wav

       Specifying an output filename:
              oggenc somefile.wav -o out.ogg

       Specifying a high-quality encoding averaging 256 kbps (but
       still VBR).
              oggenc infile.wav -b 256 out.ogg
              oggenc --resample 11025 --downmix infile.wav  -q  1

       Adding some info about the track:
              oggenc somefile.wav -t "The track title" -a "artist
              who performed this" -l "name of album"  -c  "OTHER­
              FIELD=contents  of  some  other field not explictly

       This  encodes  the  three  files,  each  with   the   same
       artist/album  tag,  but  with different title tags on each
       one. The string given as an argument to -n is used to gen­
       erate filenames, as shown in the section above. This exam­
       ple gives filenames like "The Tea Party - Touch.ogg":
              oggenc -b 192 -a "The Tea Party" -l  "Triptych"  -t
              "Touch" track01.wav -t "Underground" track02.wav -t
              "Great Big Lie" track03.wav -n "%a - %t.ogg"

       Encoding from stdin, to stdout (you can also use the vari­
       ous tagging options, like -t, -a, -l, etc.):
              oggenc -

       Reading type 3 wav files (floating point samples) probably
       doesn't work other than on intel (or other 32 bit,  little
       endian machines).
