[News] Ogg Makes Significant Gains, Embedded in Firefox Now

Hash: SHA1

Use Ogg - The Media Format of Freedom

,----[ Quote ]
| Increasingly -proprietary- evil software companies like Microsoft, Apple, and 
| Adobe are pushing video and audio formats that restrict access and restrict 
| software developers, but there is an alternative that can be played on all 
| computers without restriction — Ogg.    


Firefox 3.1 beta 1 adds support for OGG formats

,----[ Quote ]
| It’s going to be easier to use this format if millions of users will be able 
| to play it without adding additional plugins. This is really a major 
| milestone for open standards on the web. The pressure on patented formats 
| like the whole MPEG4 family will increase.   



Ogg on the Rise

,----[ Quote ]
| And things are looking up on the audio front as well, with more and more
| sites casting Ogg Vorbis streams and downloads. The Canadian Broadcasting
| Corporation has been streaming Ogg for quite some time (CBC Radio 1, 2, and
| 3), as well as Germany's Deutschlandradio. More recently the U.S. National
| Public Radio station affiliate, WBUR Boston has begun streaming Ogg Vorbis.
| And, after a brief visit to New Zealand last August by Richard Stallman, we
| received word from Radio New Zealand that they had begun providing Oggcasts
| of much of their programming.


Firefox to Support Open Video Format in Next Release

,----[ Quote ]
| Chris Blizzard reports from this week’s Mozilla Summit: Firefox will natively
| support the Ogg Theora video format!


Radio NZ rolls out Ogg Vorbis

,----[ Quote ]
| Hulse says the use of Ogg Vorbis has been in the planning stage for a while,
| but was delayed while he worked out a way to rationalise Radio New Zealand’s
| storage.


Summer of Code: Ogg Theora Port

,----[ Quote ]
| Porting open, patent free codecs to our devices has always been of great
| interest to neuros and many of our users. As some of you Neuros old timers
| may recall, we were the first to port the Ogg Vorbis audio codec to a
| portable HDD audio player. Now it's time, hopefully, to do the same with the
| Ogg Theora video codec.



Nokia to W3C: Ogg is proprietary, we need DRM on the Web

,----[ Quote ]
| But remember, that's not what Nokia is objecting to: they are arguing that
| Ogg is proprietary (it isn't) and that DRM should be part of a Web standard
| (it shouldn't).
