Ogg Vorbis

Slashdot has a very interesting article regarding Ogg Vorbis:
“Mozilla has given the Wikimedia foundation $100,000 to fund Ogg development. The reason is simple: ‘Open standards for audio and video are important because they can be used by anyone for any purpose without royalties, and can be inspected and improved by an open community. Today, video and audio on the web are dominated by proprietary technologies, most frequently patent-encumbered codecs wrapped into closed-source player widgets.’ While Vorbis is a better standard than MP3…etc. etc.”

Everyone seems to agree that Ogg Vorbis is a better sounding codec than Mp3

While I do have some Ogg Vorbis files up, I think they are actually the wrong versions of the songs, which is my fault – it seems I encoded them from the wrong folder, oops. But I am going to make it a priority to encode proper versions and make them available ASAP :rotate:
