Ogg Vorbis iconOgg Vorbis 1.3.4

An Open Source, non-proprietary and general-purpose compressed audio format for Linux/UNIX systems
Ogg Vorbis (libvorbis) is a patent-free, royalty-free, non-proprietary and open source library software that provides a general-purpose compressed audio format, which can be used for encoding mid to high quality audio files.

Ogg Vorbis supports audio frequencies from 8kHz to 48.0kHz, 16+ bit, polyphonic sounds, as well as variable and fixed bitrates, from 16 to 128 kbps per channel. The libvorbis library is the core Ogg stream and Vorbis engine.

When compared with other audio codecs, Ogg Vorbis is on the same level with MPEG-4 (AAC), and similar audio representations. Therefore, its quality and performance are definitely higher than MPEG-1/2 audio layer 3 (MP3), WMA, MPEG-4 audio (TwinVQ), or PAC.
