== About =='''Vorbis''' is a patent-clear, fully open, general purpose audio encoding format standard that rivals or even surpasses the 'upcoming' generation of proprietary codecs ([[Wikipedia:Advanced Audio Coding|AAC]] and [[Wikipedia:TwinVQ|TwinVQ]], also known as VQF). There is no raw Vorbis stream defined, instead the Vorbis codec is typically used in the [[Ogg]] container format for audio files. Because for a long time the Ogg container was quasi exclusive for Vorbis people often refer to it as 'Ogg Vorbis'. Later the FLAC audio codec as well as the video codecs Theora and Dirac began to be used inside Ogg too. In 2010 the [[WebM]] format was defined using the Vorbis codec inside the WebM container.
