Detailed Description

The liboggz C API.

Generic semantics

All access is managed via an OGGZ handle. This can be instantiated in one of three ways:

To finish using an OGGZ handle, it should be closed with oggz_close().

Reading Ogg data

To read from Ogg files or streams you must instantiate an OGGZ handle with flags set to OGGZ_READ, and provide an OggzReadPacket callback with oggz_set_read_callback(). See the OGGZ Read API section for details.

Writing Ogg data

To write to Ogg files or streams you must instantiate an OGGZ handle with flags set to OGGZ_WRITE, and provide an OggzWritePacket callback with oggz_set_write_callback(). See the OGGZ Write API section for details.

Seeking on Ogg data

To seek while reading Ogg files or streams you must instantiate an OGGZ handle for reading, and ensure that an OggzMetric function is defined to translate packet positions into units such as time. See the OGGZ Seek API section for details.

Overriding the IO methods

When an OGGZ handle is instantiated by oggz_open() or oggz_open_stdio(), Oggz uses stdio functions internally to access the raw data. However for some applications, the raw data cannot be accessed via stdio -- this commonly occurs when integrating with media frameworks. For such applications, you can provide Oggz with custom IO methods that it should use to access the raw data. Oggz will then use these custom methods, rather than using stdio methods, to access the raw data internally.

For details, see <oggz/oggz_io.h> .

Typedef Documentation

typedef void OGGZ
 

An opaque handle to an Ogg file.

This is returned by oggz_open() or oggz_new(), and is passed to all other oggz_* functions.


Function Documentation
