OGG vs MP3


-- Hello friends --

In the early 2000s I purchased an internet radio with wifi. It also had the capabilities to stream media from a computer with file sharing setup.

Long story short, It found my computer which had the samba server setup, but it could not find any media. All my music files were in ogg format. After. I converted a few ogg files to mp3, then my internet radio was able to see the mp3 files.

Ever since then, I reluctantly use the mp3 codec just to be on the safe side.

Is ogg part of the open formats like PNG, FLAC, and WebM. Also, why isn't oog widely adopted yet?

Ogg is actually a container ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ogg ) that supports different audio and video codecs. I'm going to assume you mean vorbis audio.

Yes.

MP3 was adopted first, and proliferated first (*cough* Napster).

Don't under estimate ogg vorbis, though! In terms of quality, it's very good and very flexible, and it does frequently get shipped with video games. Recently, it's being used as an official part of the HTML5/webm spec (along with opus, another free audio format), which is the main driver of youtube videos.

don't all android phones use ogg internally (for ringtones and such) and are DEFINITELY capable of reading it?

anyhow, these days there should be no problems whatsoever with ogg.

(but i am blissfully ignorant of the problems of windows or iOS users)

I don't have an internet radio anymore. I use my smartphone and an app called tunein to play my fav stations. And my smartphone can play ogg vorbis and mp3 as well
