Nero does SDK

Written by Lasse Penttinen @ 19 Feb 2003 3:28 User comments (2)

Nero does SDK Ahead Software has launched the Software Developement Kit for Nero Burning ROM and also documentation for the Nero plug-in structure.
Documentation of the plugin structure should allow 3rd party developers to add audio format support to Nero. This means that there might finally be OGG Vorbis or Musepack support available -- at least in theory. The funny thing about this is that OGG Vorbis is direct competitor of the Nero AAC Encoder. It was speculated that because of the competitive situation there would be no plug-in interface available ever, but these theories have now been proven wrong.

Nero SDK (Software Development Kit)

Record CDs and DVDs directly from your own application with Nero's Embedded API!

If you're a programmer or a software developer, you can now use Nero 5.5's Embedded API (Application Programming Interface) to add our powerful CD/DVD-writing functions to your own applications. For example, you can record graphics files right from your graphics application.

Add new audio formats to Nero, Nero Express and NeroMIX

With our Nero Audio Plug-in Manager you will be able to add new audio formats to Nero, Nero Express and NeroMIX.

To use Nero's API and to generate Audio Plug-ins you need our Nero SDK (Software Development Kit), which you can download here.

Nero not supporting Ogg is pretty much the only thing keeping me from switching to Ogg Vorbis. Hopefully someone will have the time to add Ogg support to Nero.

I just downloaded the latest Nero and Ogg SDKs and wrote the Ogg plug-in for Nero Burning ROM. Just drop nxMyOgg.dll in the Ahead\Shared\AudioPlugins folder and it should work, no Setup program is required. Download link is http://www.geocities.com/mausau/nxmyogg.zip. Enjoy!
