I am converting an audio CD to OGG format by ripping it to WAV (using
cdparanoia) and encoding it as OGG (using
If I mux the WAV file to MKA with chapter timecodes as reported by
cdparanoia -Q (the CD track timecodes) then when I play the resulting MKA file in
vlc each chapter starts exactly in the right place. However, if I mux the OGG file instead of the WAV file the chapters start slightly too late, that is,
vlc starts each chapter about 0.5-1.5 seconds into the track.
This problem can be resolved by manually adjusting the chapter timecodes after muxing, but I would like to know why this intervention is necessary.
