The Ogg transport bitstream is designed to provide framing, error protection and seeking structure for higher-level codec streams that consist of raw, unencapsulated data packets, such as the Opus, Vorbis and FLAC audio codecs or Theora and Dirac video codecs.

Contents

Name

Ogg derives from "ogging", jargon from the computer game Netrek. Ogg is not an acronym and should not be mentioned as "OGG".

Specification / standard

The Ogg transport bitstream and file format is defined in RFC 3533 approved 2003-May. As RFC documents are invariable once approved, there will never be newer versions of RFC 3533, but an RFC_3533_Errata exists instead. Existing flaws are discussed at OggIssues, ideas for the future at TransOgg.

Design constraints for Ogg bitstreams

  • True streaming; we must not need to seek to build a 100% complete bitstream.
  • Use no more than approximately 1-2% of bitstream bandwidth for packet boundary marking, high-level framing, sync and seeking.
  • Specification of absolute position within the original sample stream.
  • Simple mechanism to ease limited editing, such as a simplified concatenation mechanism.
  • Detection of corruption, recapture after error and direct, random access to data at arbitrary positions in the bitstream.

Ogg page format

The LSb (least significant bit) comes first in the Bytes. Fields with more than one byte length are encoded LSB (least significant byte) first.

Implementations

The Ogg encapsulation format can be handled with the following libraries:

  • libogg: libogg svn (C, cross-platform) Low-level Ogg parsing and writing.
  • liboggz: liboggz git or liboggz (C, cross-platform) liboggz wraps libogg and provides features such as seeking.
  • the Ogg Directshow filters: see illiminable (C++, Win32)
  • HOgg (pure Haskell)
  • JOrbis (pure Java) contains com.jcraft.jogg
  • Mutagen (pure Python)
