Last night I broadcasted signal grabbed from my soundcard's line-in. I used OddCast+IceCast. OddCast was set to save archive of stream to disk. After hour IceCast crashed resulting in OddCast reconnect. After the broadcast I found two dumped OGG files, but first of them had no OGG container header (no "vorbis" text present in header). Second file is OK. If I'm getting it right, Vorbis within Ogg container has the following format:

OggS <ogg_header> OggS <vorbis_header> OggS <vorbis_data> OggS <vorbis_data> OggS <vorbis_data> ...

but I ended only with

OggS <vorbis_data> OggS <vorbis_data> OggS <vorbis_data> ...

I would like to know if there is any chance to reconstruct header of the first file (put it again in another Ogg container) or how to play it or convert it to another format.

Thanks in advance ...

I have the same problem as stick. I used wget to grab a chunk of a stream, but no tool I can find will let me cut out the interesting bits. They all crash or hang. foobar2000 plays the file beautifully.

There's no way to rebuild a stream, hey?

1. Attack the argument, not the arguer.
2. Assume good faith.
