Ogg, Vorbis, FLAC and MP3

Ogg is an open container format of multimedia, which is maintained by the Xiph.Org Foundation.

In the Ogg files can be embedded audio and video streams, subtitles and metadata. Audio tracks in Ogg files are usually encoded using Vorbis codec, sometimes FLACSpeexOggPCM and others. Ogg files with video streams are relatively rare. Most often they are encoded by video codecs: TheoraDiracTarkinOggUVS. Files with video streams usually have the .ogv extension, while files only with audio streams – the .ogg or .oga extension.

On the web mostly you can find Ogg files with a single audio track encoded by Vorbis codec (Ogg Vorbis), sometimes by FLAC codec (Ogg FLAC). However, no matter which type of Ogg files you have, the program featured in this guide – Pazera Free Audio Extractor – easily handle the conversion all variants of Ogg files.

Ogg files can be played using almost any modern software player (eg. VLCMPlayer). Unfortunately, most portable and fixed players does not support Ogg files. If you have music collection stored in the Ogg files and your player can not play them, then you need to convert these files to format supported by your device. The choice of MP3 is probably the best because it is currently the most popular audio format and is almost certainly supported by your player.
