Ogg Vorbis handling regression fixed

Recent changes in the Ogg importer component brought some regression - some Ogg Vorbis files may cause QuickTime (iTunes, etc.) to freeze or crash (ticket #1154, #1155).

The problem should now be fixed in the SVN (r12814) and a new binary snapshot containing the fix is available. Recommended to all XiphQT users.

    Thanks for the fix (re tickets 1154-55) - I had basically same problem w/ my new MBPro core 2 duo, (identical hardware/software to 1155). Some ogg files worked consistently, others didn’t (hanging iTunes). The binary snapshot w/ the r12814 fix solved the problems I had encountered. Thanks very much for your work.

    Thanks for this fix, luckily i’ve been quite busy this past week, and was sooo excited when the new release was announced. I have a large collection of ogg wrapped flacs in my iTunes collection and wasn’t sure what the freeze up was due to. Well done on the release.

    Thank you for fixing this problem. After installing this QuickTime component, all of my iTunes/Ogg playback issues have indeed appeared to … disappear!

    Ah, excellent, glad this is fixed. :) The QuickTime Components homepage needs updating to note this issue, as the topmost post there still offers the broken last-stable.

    Please please please post this as a release. I never realized there was a solution to this problem, as there is nothing noted on the front page. Assuming that the project was going through the typical open source “phase” of near-abandonment, I simply deleted all of my Vorbis files off of my new Mac and moved forward. If people are downloading something broken, they give up; not many of us go back and try again when we think we have the latest release!
