Opus is a very popular audio codec, used for the real-time streaming of audio (such as in VoIP or live-TV applications). Quote from Wikipedia:

Opus is a lossy audio compression format developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) that is particularly suitable for interactive real-time applications over the Internet.

In order to quickly compile your libopus, you can type the following commands in your shell:

$ cd /my/path/where/i/keep/compiled/stuff
$ git clone git://
$ cd opus
$ ./
$ ./configure --enable-static --enable-shared
$ make
# make install
# ldconfig
