Xiph QuickTime Components


Package test results are passing.

This package was approved by moderator purity on 1/6/2015.

Xiph QuickTime Components (XiphQT) is a set of QuickTime and Macintosh OS X plug-ins. Their role is to provide support for Xiph media compression and container formats.

If you are an end user: installing XiphQT components is all you need to start using Xiph-formatted media files in a variety of applications - for example, listening to Ogg/Vorbis files in QuickTime Player or iTunes. The programming interfaces used in XiphQT allow the provided functionality to be available transparently to all media handling applications using QuickTime or OS X component mechanisms.

If you are a programmer, you have built a Macintosh Core Audio or QuickTime-based application and would like to add Xiph formats support: most of the time there is hardly anything you will need to do to add support.

To install Xiph QuickTime Components, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install xiphqt

To upgrade Xiph QuickTime Components, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade xiphqt
