oggenc2 is an enhanced version of oggenc developed by John33. Features compression from lossless files (Monkey's Audio, LPAC, FLAC, OptimFROG, WavPack and Shorten - requires presence of decoders), and the ability to specify "padding" in the headers for subsequent insertion of tags.
Most of the time, oggenc may be replaced by oggenc2, as the latter recognizes the former's switches.
If the application that uses oggenc is hard-coded to find "oggenc.exe" (or its equivalent in *nix), you can simply rename "oggenc2.exe" to "oggenc.exe" and overwrite the original "oggenc.exe".
Usage: oggenc2 [options] input.wav [...] OPTIONS: General: -Q, --quiet Produce no output to stderr -h, --help Print this help text -k, --skeleton Adds an Ogg Skeleton bitstream -r, --raw Raw mode. Input files are read directly as PCM data -F, --raw-format=n Set format for raw input. Default is 1 for Standard PCM; use 3 for IEEE Float. -B, --raw-bits=n Set bits/sample for raw input. Default is 16, 32 assumed for IEEE Float. -C, --raw-chan=n Set number of channels for raw input. Default is 2 -R, --raw-rate=n Set samples/sec for raw input. Default is 44100 --raw-endianness 1 for bigendian, 0 for little (defaults to 0) -b, --bitrate Choose a nominal bitrate to encode at. Attempt to encode at a bitrate averaging this. Takes an argument in kbps. By default, this produces a VBR encoding, equivalent to using -q or --quality. See the --managed option to use a managed bitrate targetting the selected bitrate. --managed Enable the bitrate management engine. This will allow much greater control over the precise bitrate(s) used, but encoding will be much slower. Don't use it unless you have a strong need for detailed control over bitrate, such as for streaming. -m, --min-bitrate Specify a minimum bitrate (in kbps). Useful for encoding for a fixed-size channel. -M, --max-bitrate Specify a maximum bitrate in kbps. Useful for streaming applications. --advanced-encode-option option=value Sets an advanced encoder option to the given value. The valid options (and their values) are documented in the man page supplied with this program. They are for advanced users only, and should be used with caution. -q, --quality Specify quality between -2 (low) and 10 (high), instead of specifying a particular bitrate. This is the normal mode of operation. Fractional qualities (e.g. 2.75) are permitted The default quality level is 3. --resample n Resample input data to sampling rate n (Hz) -S, --converter Specify the resampling engine to be used. Options are: 0 (Best), 1 (Medium) & 2 (Fast). --downmix Downmix stereo to mono. Only allowed on stereo input. --scale n Scale input data to n (n = between 0.00 and 1.00) --FLAC-scale n Scale input data using FLAC Replaygain Tags where: c = 1 to use Title Replaygain value, and c = 2 to use Album Replaygain value. -s, --serial Specify a serial number for the stream. If encoding multiple files, this will be incremented for each stream after the first. --discard-comments Prevents comments in FLAC and Ogg FLAC files from being copied to the output Ogg Vorbis file. --ignorelength Ignore the datalength in wav headers. This will allow support for files > 4GB and STDIN data streams. Naming: -o, --output=fn Write file to fn (only valid in single-file mode) -n, --names=string Produce filenames as this string, with %a, %t, %l, %n, %d replaced by artist, title, album, track number, and date, respectively (see below for specifying these). %% gives a literal %. -X, --name-remove=s Remove the specified characters from parameters to the -n format string. Useful to ensure legal filenames. -P, --name-replace=s Replace characters removed by --name-remove with the characters specified. If this string is shorter than the --name-remove list or is not specified, the extra characters are just removed. Default settings for the above two arguments are platform specific. --utf8 Tells oggenc that the command line parameters date, title, album, artist, genre, and comment are already in UTF8. On windows, this switch applies to file names too. -c, --comment=c Add the given string as an extra comment. This may be used multiple times. The argument should be in the format "tag=value". -d, --date Date for track (usually date of performance) -N, --tracknum Track number for this track -t, --title Title for this track -l, --album Name of album -a, --artist Name of artist -G, --genre Genre of track -L, --lyrics Include lyrics from given file (.srt or .lrc format) -Y, --lyrics-language Sets the language for the lyrics If multiple input files are given, then multiple instances of the previous five arguments will be used, in the order they are given. If fewer titles are specified than files, OggEnc will print a warning, and reuse the final one for the remaining files. If fewer track numbers are given, the remaining files will be unnumbered. For the others, the final tag will be reused for all others without warning (so you can specify a date once, for example, and have it used for all the files)
