NodeJS native binding to libvorbis

Build Status

This module provides Vorbis Encoder and Decoder classes compatible with node-ogg streams.


node-vorbis comes bundled with its own copy of libvorbis, so there's no need to have the library pre-installed on your system.

Simply compile and install node-vorbis using npm:

$ npm install vorbis


var fs = require('fs');
var ogg = require('ogg');
var vorbis = require('vorbis');
var file = __dirname + '/Hydrate-Kenny_Beltrey.ogg';

var od = new ogg.Decoder();
od.on('stream', function (stream) {
  var vd = new vorbis.Decoder(stream);

  // the "format" event contains the raw PCM format
  vd.on('format', function (format) {
    // send the raw PCM data to stdout

  // an "error" event will get emitted if the stream is not a Vorbis stream
  // (i.e. it could be a Theora video stream instead)
  vd.on('error', function (err) {
    // maybe try another decoder...


See the examples directory for some more example code.
