The ogg file extension is used for Ogg Vorbis compressed audio format. Ogg is fairly new audio compression format. It is roughly comparable to other formats used to store and play digital music, such as mp3 and other digital audio formats. OGG is different from these other formats because it is completely free, open audio file format.

Ogg is the name of Xiph.org's container format for audio, video, and metadata.
Vorbis is the name of a specific audio compression scheme that's designed to be contained in Ogg. Note that other formats are capable of being embedded in Ogg such as FLAC and Speex.

Illiminable's ogg directshow filters will let you play your Ogg Vorbis files in Windows Media Player, and other DirectShow based players. Players not based on DirectShow do not need these filters.
