Using Other (Less Common) Formats

Although the formats covered in this book (RealMedia, Windows Media, QuickTime, MP3) dominate the streaming audio marketplace, there are a few other format options. This section presents a couple of other commonly used formats, explained with benefits and disadvantages.

Ogg Vorbis

This format is fairly new to the streaming media wars, but it has a major point of distinction: It’s 100% free! Unlike the “free” MP3 codec, which actually requires paying licensing fees, Ogg Vorbis is completely open and patent-free with no bit stream royalties. You can easily identify Ogg Vorbis files by their filename suffix .ogg. Find out all you need to know about Ogg Vorbis at www.ogg-vorbis.com.
