Description of problem:
Update to the latest version available from xiph.org
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
libtheora, libvorbis, theora-tools, vorbis-tools, speex
Steps to Reproduce:
*** Bug 168774 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Latest libvorbis 1.1.2 fixed a gcc4 bug that reduced audio quality.
Also there is libogg 1.1.3.
As of today, libogg, libvorbis, vorbis-tools in FC dev are the latest.
Speex too, assuming we still want to stick with 1.0.x and not jump to 1.1.x.
But there is now libtheora 1.0alpha7 too, FC dev still being at 1.0alpha5 (and
theora-tools is built from the same tarball).
The libtheora update will be trivial as there isn't a single patch in the
package. I've just tested it and it works great. It might be worth switching to
the .tar.bz2 source to save up 300kB too. If you'd like a spec file patch, just
let me know.
The Xiph download page here http://www.xiph.org/downloads/ lists the 1.1.x
versions as stable so it may be worthwhile to go up to the later releases. Only
speex lists 1.0.5 as stable, but having been using speex 1.1.x on fedora for a
while i think its just as stable as 1.0.x but has some worthwhile new features
May also be useful to use also Vorbis aoTuV beta 4.51 patch:
This patch improve vorbis quality, as reported by numerous listening tests:
Seems that vorbis development at xiph.org has stopped, so this patch wasn't
merged (but vorbis 1.1.0 merged aoTuV beta 2).
Ping... it would be really nice to have libtheora alpha7 in FC6, really...

Some hardware players have issues playing the AoTuV Ogg files, there is also an
optimized version of the patch available though I can't remember the link off hand.

Really? This is the first time I hear this. AoTuV is also the reccomended Vorbis

If you find any link post that here.
