Lightbulb Why not ogg for lq radio?


Hi,

Why not record lq radio in ogg format in the true spirit of free software? or atleast have an option where user can playback in ogg if he chooses so.

with regards,
ashwin_cse

This has been covered many times, but to reiterate: every single release we have ever done at LQ Radio has an ogg vorbis file available for it. As Chris mentioned, you can simply substitute .ogg for .mp3 to get the appropriate file. The main podcast RSS feed only contains the mp3 link since unfortunately almost no podcatchers support OGG. I think one reasons this keep coming up is because this info is not easily available on the LQ Radio site. I'll add that now.
