This QuickTime component hasn't been updated since 2009. However, it works here in OS X 10.7 Lion with QuickTime Player, Quick View, and Safari 6.0.3. Just needs to be placed in the folder/Macintosh HD/Library/QuickTime. (Not '/Library/Components' as the outdated ReadMe instructs.)

It works in iTunes (at least iTunes 11.6) if iTunes is started in 32-bit mode (right-click the iTunes application icon in the Applications folder, choose 'Get Information', then check-mark 'Open in 32-bit mode'.)

To encode audio in the .ogg format, make sure you download the version with encoder from the project website: http://www.xiph.org/quicktime/download.html
It'll work via the QuickTime export menu, e.g. via QuickTime Pro, MPEG Streamclip, Audacity, etc.

Sadly, it doesn't work anymore starting with Safari 6.1 (OS X 10.7). Please, could this nice plugin be updated to make it work in Safari again?

Does not work for me on Mountain Lion 10.8.2 with Safari 6.0.2. Wish Safari would by default support ogg. Apple shame on you for not supporting open standards!

I use this to play FLAC files in Quicktime or Quicklook and it's working perfectly in SL 10.6.8 provided you put it in the right place (/Library/Quicktime/).
Great!

Worked for me in Snow Leopard after I rebooted (maybe it only required logout/login, but it was just as easy to reboot).

I've installed it in the library/components folder in both my root directory and my user directory, rebooted and it still doesn't work. Definitely a Snow Leopard problem?

@Andrew Weiss: You may need to copy the thing to /Library/Quicktime/

Works great, thank you making it dear developer.

It made it possible for me to play and convert some "speex" .spx audio that could otherwise only be played in VLC Player.

Super Duper!

Is this still useful with Perian supporting OGG/FLAC?

Perian does NOT support ogg/flac yet, only vorbis inside mkv container.

This is a playback component, not an encoder. I hope they'll include an encoder at some point, but it's by no means a requirement of a QuickTime component.

In the meantime, you can create ogg files using the oft-overlooked conversion features of VLC (use the "Streaming/Exporting Wizard"). These files can then by played in any QT-compatible player with the use of this component.

Encoder or no, this is a very useful component. Works great in Tiger. (10.4.6 PPC, QuickTime 7.0.4).

I'm a bit confused: shouldn't a Quicktime Component for Ogg provide an option to export to Ogg from within Quicktime Player (Pro)?
I installed Xiph QT Component 0.1.3 on Tiger 10.4.5, QT 7.0.4 (Pro) and, yes, I (QT Player, iTunes 6.0.4) can play ogg-files, but there is no ogg-entry in the export-menu of QT Player.
Also, the Info-panel in iTunes classifies the ogg-files as "Quicktime movie file".

Well it IS a Quicktime movie file since Quicktime can play it ;)

This is the first version of this component that works fairly well with streaming .ogg/icecast and Quicktime (according to bug reports on the site, getting this to work with iTunes is an Apple issue and may not be possible). Work on metadata needs to be done, as the QT player title remains at whatever was playing when first connected. Nice update!

Just to add, the stream played for about 20 minutes. Further attempts to restart the stream would result in extremely sluggish response of QT menus and occasional beachballs. It's a start, but there's more to do in this area.

Also, when the OGG file is opened in iTunes the Title atribute isn't set as the song's Name.
But it works nicer than the other plugin version. Thanks! ;)
