Kamaelia docs : Kamaelia.Codec.Vorbis.VorbisDecode


For examples and more explanations, see the module level docs.

class VorbisDecode(Axon.Component.component)

VorbisDecode() -> new VorbisDecoder

A Vorbis decoder accepts data on its inbox "inbox", as would be read from an ogg vorbis file, decodes it and sends on the decompressed data on out of its outbox "outbox". It doesn't provide any further information at this stage, such as bitrate, or any other frills.

Requires libvorbissimple and python bindings (see kamaelia downloads)


A simple player:


This component expects to recieve OGG VORBIS data as you would get from a .ogg file containing vorbis data. (rather than raw vorbis data)


  • control : Receiving a message here causes component shutdown
  • inbox : Ogg wrapped vorbis data


  • outbox : As data is decompresessed it is sent to this outbox
  • signal : When the component shuts down, it sends on a producerFinished message

Methods defined here


You should be using the inbox/outbox interface, not these methods (except construction). This documentation is designed as a roadmap as to their functionalilty for maintainers and new component developers.


x.__init__(...) initializes x; see x.__class__.__doc__ for signature


This contains no user serviceable parts :-)

Theory of operation is simple. It simply repeatedly asks the decoder object for audio. That decoded audio is sent to the component's outbox. If the decoder object responds with RETRY, the component retries. If the decoder object responds with NEEDDATA, the component waits for data on any inbox until some is available (from an inbox)


Got a problem with the documentation? Something unclear that could be clearer? Want to help improve it? Constructive criticism is very welcome - especially if you can suggest a better rewording!

Please leave you feedback here in reply to the documentation thread in the Kamaelia blog.
