    .ogg File Extension

    I recently downloaded a couple of music files from a swap site. They have the .ogg file extension. Does anybody know how to convert these to a format that might be usable, like MP3 or other, that might be usable on the players that I have installed. If they are not convertible, I would appreciate knowing a player that would work and its website. Presently, I have Media Juke Box,
    Music Match Juke Box, Real Juke Box and Windows Media Player installed.

    Thanks,

    This page at FilExt.com says:

    <pre> .OGG Ogg Vorbis Codec Compressed WAV File [use Winamp]</pre>

    You also could check other file extension sites (I searched file extensions in Google to find that one).

    A Google search says that .OGG is a WINAMP file extension.

    Re: .ogg File Extension

    I am a bit late replying to this one, but a little more info from the dbPowerAmp site
    <hr>Ogg Vorbis is a fully Open, non-proprietary, patent-and-royalty-free, general-purpose compressed audio format for high quality (44.1-48.0kHz, 16+ bit, polyphonic) audio and music at fixed and variable bit rates from 16 to 350 kbps/channel. Ogg Vorbis is a popular free (as in free from patents) encoder, of a higher quality than Mp3 - most players support Ogg through a plug-in. Ogg supports full ID Tagging where track information (Artist etc) is imbedded within the music file. <hr>
    This link Xiph shows why .ogg was devloped, mainly that MP3 is copyright format and charges can be made for its use.
