Ogg project codecs use the Ogg bitstream format to arrange the raw, compressed bitstream into a more robust, useful form. For example, the Ogg bitstream makes seeking, time stamping and error recovery possible, as well as mixing several sepearate, concurrent media streams into a single physical bitstream.
This source distribution includes libogg and nothing else. Other modules (eg, the modules libvorbis, vorbis-tools for the Vorbis music codec, libtheora for the Theora video codec) contain the codec libraries for use with Ogg bitstreams.

The Ogg homepage is located at https://www.xiph.org/ogg/ . Up to date technical documents, contact information, source code and pre-built utilities may be found there.
Building from tarball distributions
and optionally (as root):
This will install the Ogg libraries (static and shared) into /usr/local/lib, includes into /usr/local/include and API documentation into /usr/local/share/doc.
Building from repository source
A standard svn build should consist of nothing more than:
./autogen.sh ./configure make
and as root if desired :
Building on Windows
Use the project file in the win32 directory. It should compile out of the box.
Cross-compiling from Linux to Windows
It is also possible to cross compile from Linux to windows using the MinGW cross tools and even to run the test suite under Wine, the Linux/*nix windows emulator.
On Debian and Ubuntu systems, these cross compiler tools can be installed by doing:
sudo apt-get mingw32 mingw32-binutils mingw32-runtime wine
Once these tools are installed its possible to compile and test by executing the following commands, or something similar depending on your system:
./configure --host=i586-mingw32msvc --target=i586-mingw32msvc --build=i586-linux make make check
(Build instructions for Ogg codecs such as vorbis are similar and may be found in those source modules' README files)
Building with CMake
Ogg supports building using CMake. CMake is a meta build system that generates native projects for each platform.
To generate projects just run cmake replacing
YOUR-PROJECT-GENERATOR with a proper generator from a list here:
cmake -G YOUR-PROJECT-GENERATOR .
Note that by default cmake generates projects that will build static libraries.
To generate projects that will build dynamic library use
BUILD_SHARED_LIBS option like this:
cmake -G YOUR-PROJECT-GENERATOR -DBUILD_SHARED_LIBS=1 .
After projects are generated use them as usual
Building on Windows
Use proper generator for your Visual Studio version like:
cmake -G "Visual Studio 12 2013" .
Building on Mac OS X
Use Xcode generator. To build framework run:
cmake -G Xcode -DBUILD_FRAMEWORK=1 .
Building on Linux
Use Makefile generator which is default one.
cmake . make
