Projects/Formats

In an effort to bring open-source ideals to the world of multimedia The Xiph.org Foundation (XiphOrg) develops a multitude of amazing products.

Container Formats

  • Ogg: Media container. This is our native format and the recommeded container for Xiph codecs.
  • OggSkeleton: Skeleton information on all logical content bitstreams in Ogg
  • SpeexRTP: RTP payload format for voice
  • VorbisRTP: RTP payload format for general audio
  • TheoraRTP: RTP payload format for video
  • XSPF: XML playlist format

Codecs

  • Compressed Codecs:
  • Uncompressed Codecs:
    • OggPCM: Uncompressed PCM audio, primarily as an interchange codec
    • OggPCM2: Uncompressed PCM audio, under active development
    • OggRGB: Uncompressed RGB video, primarily as an interchange codec, under active development
    • OggYUV: Uncompressed YUV video, primarily as an interchange codec, under active development
    • OggUVS: Uncompressed RGB and YUV video, under active development as an alternative to OggRGB and OggYUV.
    • OggWrit: Text phrase codec (e.g. subtitles)
    • CMML: Continuous Media Markup Language, foundation for Annodex
  • Metadata Codecs:
    • Metadata: Arbitrary metadata stream format (vapourware so far)

Software for distributing media

  • Icecast: Streaming server
  • Ices: Source client for Icecast servers
  • IceShare: P2P content distribution

Other software
