'''Vorbis''' is a patent-clear, fully open , general purpose audio encoding format standard that rivals or even surpasses the 'upcoming' generation of proprietary coders 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 most often typically used in the [[Ogg]] container formatfor audio files. Because for a long time the Ogg container was quasi exclusive for Vorbis people often refer to it as 'Ogg Vorbis'. It is then called 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 Vorbiscodec inside the WebM container.
libvorbis, a BSD-licensed source implementation of Vorbis as a library is available; See the [ Ogg Vorbis page] for documentation, downloads and distribution terms.
Further, many Many hard- and software players support Ogg Vorbis; see [] or the links below for a list of all the players we know about.
