Ogg Vorbis > Mp3

,----[ Quote ]
| You will all be highly familiar with the format Mp3 (MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3),
| as it is somewhat common in the world of digital music. You would think a *
| widely used, compressed audio format would offer great benefits. Not entirely
| true, unfortunately, Mp3 is riddled with patents causing headaches for music *
| distributors and also software developers alike. *

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.
