Description Chris Ricker 2002-11-04 19:20:04 UTC
Running oggenc with the -b option (to specify bitrate) and forgetting the
bitrate results in a bogus error message.  Rather than something like:

ERROR:  No bitrate specified.  Use -h for help.

it responds with an incorrect "No input files specified".  For example:

[kaboom@verdande wav]$ oggenc -b 10_exit.wav 
OggEnc v1.0 (libvorbis 1.0)
(c) 2000-2002 Michael Smith <msmith@labyrinth.net.au>

ERROR: No input files specified. Use -h for help.
[kaboom@verdande wav]$ 

Compare that with the correct command line, below:

[kaboom@verdande wav]$ oggenc -b 320 10_exit.wav 
Opening with wav module: WAV file reader
Encoding "10_exit.wav" to 
at approximate bitrate 320 kbps (VBR encoding enabled)
        [100.0%] [ 0m00s remaining] \


it's the bitrate that's missing, not the input file....

Comment 1 Colin Walters 2004-05-13 20:06:39 UTC
A warning is now output that the specified bitrate is not recognized,

walters@nexus> oggenc -b /usr/share/sounds/question.wav              
Warning: nominal bitrate "/usr/share/sounds/question.wav" not recognised
OggEnc v1.0.1 (libvorbis 1.0.1)
(c) 2000-2003 Michael Smith <msmith@xiph.org>
ERROR: No input files specified. Use -h for help.
