I have a folder with a large number of Wav files which I wish to convert to Ogg. How do I do this for the latest release of Mac Os X. I have tried to run Drop Ogg X but it does not work, complaining instead that it does not support PowerPC. The fact is my machine is a 2013 Macbook.

I also dowloaded libogg-1.1 and ran:

sudo make install

Not sure though what I have installed and where to find it.

I wish to add the ogg files to my html5 webpage in order to support firefox.

  • A library (lib) doesn’t do anything by itself. I suggest you use Homebrew and install ffmpeg. – Daniel B May 24 '15 at 19:08

Simply download a static build of ffmpeg from ffmpeg.org, extract it, and use that:

ffmpeg -i input.wav -c:a libvorbis -qscale:a 3 output.ogg

This will convert the audio to Vorbis, using the default quality of 3. The quality range is 0–10 where 10 is the highest.
