What is Ogg Vorbis?
Ogg Vorbis is a new audio compression format. It is roughly comparable to other formats used to store and play digital music, such as MP3, VQF, AAC, and other digital audio formats. It is different from these other formats because it is completely free, open, and unpatented.

What do I need to listen to Ogg?
If you're a Windows user, download �externalWinamp 5, which copes with Ogg.
If you're not using Windows, visit �externalOgg's download page.

What are you using to encode it?
We use �externalOddcast to encode our stations, and �externalIcecast2 to serve it.

I've got more questions.
See �externalOgg's FAQ; or see the excellent �externalWikipedia entry on Vorbis, which also contains more software to play and listen to Ogg Vorbis files.
