ogg

File extension
.ogg
File category
Description

The format is available without any restrictions. It was created in 2002 by programmers of The Xiphophorus Company and given its name after a character from Terry Pratchett’s “Small Gods”. The format is intended for multimedia playing and editing; sampling frequency is 6-192 kHz. It was designed for live streaming with an option to store some tracks with their own tags within the same file. When the file is opened in a player, all tracks show, which gives the appearance of music being opened from different files.

Originally, it was used for the entirety of OGG-using files, but for the recent ten years, it has being associated mainly with files of OGG Vorbis. The function set is the same as one of AC3 and AAC codecs, which leave the popular MP3 behind. The spread of OGG is restricted a bit due to the fact that it is not supplied by Apple products.

Technical details

At its core, the extension is a container for several streams of audio, video and metadata. It generates the sound of a medium or high level within the range of 16-128 kbps/channel and exceeds MP3 by sound quality. In order to reduce the file size, the program deletes a certain amount of data, and therefore, the compression is irreversible. The format is best suited for storage of musical tracks, but it can be used as well for voice recording.

WAVE Audio File

File extension
.wav
File category
Description

WAV format is intended for operation with digitalized audio stream. It contains musical compositions, voice recordings, and various audio effects. Developed by programmers from Microsoft and IBM, it is a key format for placing of uncompressed sound files on Windows PCs. The files can be played back in QuickTime, Windows Media Player, Wav Player and some other programs. In addition to that, they can be processed in audio editing apps.

When a file is compressed into WAV, the data are not supposed to be lost, and the quality is excellent. However, the format did not have a huge market share, due to its larger size, as compared with MP3. It is required to have enough time and disc space to upload and send such files via the Internet. One of the major advantages of WAV is linked to the use of Linear Pulse Code Modulation (LPCM) for storage of audio stream. Consequently, a copy is just as good as an original, which is highly appraised by experts in music and professional users.

Technical details

Sound files with this extension are recorded into 8 or 16 bit per sample. A standard option for CD Audio is an audio stream of 16 bit per sample and sampling frequency of 44.1 KHz. One second of sound corresponds to 88 Kb of internal memory. WAV files can store metadata in the INFO chunk, and they also include integrated IFF lists.

In some cases, the standard format may be used for broadcasting. For instance, BBC stereo data of 44 100 Hz and 16 bit are generally accepted within the VCS system.
