Can't import ogg files

I’ve installed Audacity 2.3.2, I had a previous version that worked perfectly, but now I can’t import OGG files

This is my Libraries config

and this is what I get whenever I try to import an ogg file

Any help will be much appreciated!

The name of the file suggests that it is actually “opus” rather than “ogg”. Audacity does not currently support “opus”.

There is a command line decoder for opus here:

I tested importing OGG files on my MacbookPro with Mojave 10.14.6 and with both 2.3.2 and the latest alpha build I have for the upcoming 2.3.3 and OGG imports work just fine.

I suspect that Steve is on the right trail here …


There’s also an on-line tool here that can give you information about the format of audio files:
If that says that the file is “opus” encoded, then you will need to use something other than Audacity to convert it into another format.

I managed to import an Opus file - following the test steps in this bug (relating only to debug Audacity versions):
ASSERT (in debug builds only) importing opus format

We do have an open Audacity bug which prevents the export of Opus files:
Opus export fails - cannot open codec


My mistake. I incorrectly thought that the problem with opus was export and import. I’ve not tested on macOS, but on Linux I can import opus files without any problem.

Nevertheless, I’d still recommend checking to see what this page says about the file
