Not Working For Me?
Authored by: gralem on Nov 05, '02 08:06:19AM

I've installed the QT plugin as /Library/Quicktime/OggVorbis.qtx.

I've gone to my directory containing 10 .ogg files, selected one, "Get Info", "Open With:", set all to be opened by iTunes.

An iTunes icon does *NOT* appear for my .ogg files. They do not open w/ iTunes (3.0.1), they do not drag into iTunes.

What am I doing wrong? (also cannot open directly into QT 6.0.2.)

I had some problems with set of oggs that had somehow thought they were made by Unsanity's Echo. I finally got them to be "fixed" by setting the type and creator and removing the custom icon bit. This can be done from the command line using SetFile (running SetFile by itself gives you it's options).

SetFile -a c -t OggS -c hook *.ogg

-a c changes the custom bit from C to c meaning no custom icon
-t changes the type to OggS
-c changes the creator to hook (iTunes)

I am now able to drop the oggs into iTunes and play them as well as from the finder.

A side note.. iTunes seems to pick up some of the ogg comments Artists Title etc
sadly iTunes doesn't seem to be able to edit the comments. But displaying them is big..! :) I wish I knew more about this plugin and how it was created.

It doesn't appear that I can burn cd's from the oggs though, which was something I could do with the older qtcomponents plugin. It burned it so well that cddb would recognize it.. :)

Hope this helps.
