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.

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.
