LEAD Vorbis Encoder

The LEAD Vorbis Encoder is a DirectShow filter for compressing audio data using the Vorbis compression algorithm. Vorbis is a new audio compression method used to store digital music or any audio data. The compressed audio data can be stored inside AVI or Ogg files.

Compared to MP3 compressed audio files, Vorbis based compression produces audio files that maintain a higher sound quality and/or a smaller compressed size, depending on the needs of the user. For example, the user has the option of keeping his or her digital music collection at the same sound quality level as MP3, but requiring significantly less disk space. Or, a user can commit the same amount of storage (disk space) as the MP3 based files, however the digital music will have higher quality sound.

The compression options for the LEAD Vorbis encoder can be set manually through the encoder property page. The compression options can also be set programmatically using the ILMVorbisEncoder interface.
