|Description||🔵 Like the MKV file extension, the WEBM royalty-free extension is developed by various online parties such as Google. It is a freeware offering streaming of online video content. It was first developed in 2010. By using the HTML5 version of YouTube, one can watch videos encoded in WEBM.|
|Technical details||🔵 Encoding and decoding in open-source WEBM video format are possible while using the ffvp8 software or libvpx from the Google support. When it comes to the Android, support a version of 2.3 (Gingerbread) and above, allowing playback of WEBM format can be used for encoding and decoding. Back in 2001, using Rockchip, a full hardware implementation of 1080p VO8 encoding was made possible. The video element of the file is encoded using VP8 video codec, and the audio component of the file is encoded using the Vorbis audio codec. It provides open video compression for HTML5 videos, and most major web browsers support WebM as a part of HTML5 video delivery. However, some programs like Quicktime and browsers like Internet Explorer and Safari do not have native WebM support. Fortunately, the Google WebM Project Team released plugins for Internet Explorer and Safari in 2011 to allow WebM files' playback through the standard HTML5 video tag.|

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:
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.
