The Xiph.Org Foundation developed OGG, a free and open container format, including unconstrained software patents (Ogg Vorbis). Users can stream and edit high-quality digital multimedia files using this. The term “ogging” is where the name “Ogg” comes from. In the video game Netrek, the term “ogging” refers to the suicide run death of a carrier. OGG file formats are not supported by Apple, and they are not extensively used in the digital media industry because MP3 is more widely used and more widely supported. Formerly used to identify any file that made use of the OGG container format, the OGG extension started to be restricted to Ogg Vorbis audio files from 2007.
The OGG extension might refer to a container file in addition to the audio. Different audio streams and metadata streams are supported by OGG file containers. From 16 to 128 kbps, the compression offers medium to high quality (comparable to MP3 and other audio file formats). To reduce file size, the lossy codec discards some portions of the file. Although it is presently only compatible with audio files, the OGG file container will eventually support speech files as well. OGG files can be played by numerous free media players, GPS units, and portable media players because the content is open source. OGG file containers can encode audio, video, and other types of data.
