ogg

File extension .ogg
File category audio
Description

OGG is a compressed audio file format or file extension used to hold audio data. It was developed by Xiph.Org Foundation and can include track and artist information and metadata.

The OGG extension was developed to replace proprietary audio formats like mp3, VQF and AAC. They are compressed to a smaller size than mp3, which means less bandwidth and storage requirements. OGG files also offer better sound quality than mp3 files of the same size. Most players, such as VLC and Windows Media Player, can open and play OGG files.

How to create and how to open an OGG file

There are many ways to create an OGG file. You can convert WAV, WMA or MP3 to OGG, create a new OGG file, convert a playlist/folder or rip a CD/track to OGG. Simply right click on the file and select “convert to” then “OGG” on the menu that pops up. You can also use audio converter software to create OGG files from proprietary formats.

To open an OGG file, use any music and audio software like VLC, Windows Media Player, Miro, MPlayer, Adobe Audition, Audials One, Xion, etc. You can also drag OGG files into Google Chrome or open it online. GPS devices can open OGG files although Apple devices don’t support the format, so you’ll need to download an app like VLC or OPlayer.

Which other formats OGG can be converted into and why

OGG files can be converted to many other audio file formats. Simply right click on the OGG file and convert to your preferred format. You can convert OGG to any of the following formats:

  1. 1. MP3
  2. 2. WAV
  3. 3. M4A
  4. 4. AAC

Although OGG audio files are free, unpatented, and smaller than MP3, not many portable players support the format. You’ll need to convert OGG to MP3 or other formats that are supported by your device. Some programs also don’t allow saving in OGG so you might need to convert back to OGG once you are done working on the audio file.

There are many advantages to OGG. Their smaller size means you need less storage space and bandwidth when streaming. Reports have also shown that OGG files offer better sound quality than MP3 files of the same size. They are perfect for complex, high-frequency sounds and give creators and other users the ability to work with multimedia for free.

WAVE Audio File

File extension .wav
File category audio
Description

WAV is the simplest audio format developed in the early 1990s by Microsoft and IBM. It is a lossless formula which often means large file size.

WAV files sound better than MP3s because they are lossless and uncompressed, providing uncompromised audio quality ideal for broadcast CD music, TV and radio. They are designed to store audio bit stream on CD and tend to be larger than most audio file formats. WAV files aren’t compressed and retain all elements of the original sound, making them perfect for sound processing in DAWs

Technical details

How to create and how to open an WAV file

There are many ways to create a WAV and virtually all digital audio workstations used by beat and music composers record and save using the WAV format. You can also convert other audio files to WAV and vice versa. To create a Wav file, simply open the audio in any program that supports the format and save. Recording tools and apps also render in WAV.

Virtually all players that support MP3s also support WAV, so opening a WAV audio file should be effortless. Windows and Mac users can open WAV files using VLC, local media players, audio editors, online converters and players, DAWs and more. You can also play WAV files using the native player that comes with your Android and iOS smartphone.

Which other formats WAV can be converted into and why

As the simplest audio file format, WAV can be converted to almost any audio format. You can also convert other audio files to WAV. Here are the common conversions.

  1. 1. MP3
  2. 2. WMA
  3. 3. FLAC
  4. 4. MIDI

WAV to MP3 conversions are the most popular among portable device users and streamers. WAV files are uncompressed and lossless, so they tend to be very large, making them impractical for streaming and carrying in portable devices with limited storage. As such, most people convert WAV to MP3 files, which are up to 10 times smaller.

As lossless file formats, WAVs offer the best sound quality and retain all elements, including reverbs, guitar sounds and transients. They are the perfect format for music composers, producers and sound designers. They are also supported by many platforms and programs, so you won’t have to convert to another format. However, you’ll probably need to compress them when sending, streaming to save space and bandwidth.
