    I'm no expert when it comes to audio, but this works and is basically copied from the readme.md in hound's repository, along an utility trait that adds ringbuffer-like behavior to VecDeque. How does decoding Opus come into play here?

    To convert the buffer of samples into a playable file, you can use a library such as hound. It doesn't seem to be the fastest (it looks like you can only write 1 sample at a time which means the compiler will be unlikely to vectorize writes), but again, it's likely sufficient and appears very easy to use.

    To load the audio data from file you need a separate library, e.g. hound for .wav files.

    That may work, but I haven't tried it since its LGPL licence. I'm using the alto crate and now that I've checked its repository is archived https://github.com/jpernst/alto
