.oga - able to rip cd's with all of it's contents also metadata like picture of the album (also separate pictures for each song)? Yes? This is fantastic
:Yes, Ogg can carry multiple streams of audio, so you could backup an entire album in Ogg as FLAC or Vorbis and use the .oga extension. In this case alone, it is recommended to use .oga instead of .ogg because .ogg is for a single Vorbis stream file, while .oga requires a Skeleton stream which helps players recognize all the different songs in the file. Confused? One song, .ogg. Multiple songs in one file, .oga. Just make sure that the .oga file has a Skeleton stream. You can verify that with the ogginfo command line tool. And yes, you can also add a JPEG or PNG inside Ogg. I just don't know of any program that supports it, but theoretically it is possible. Just a heads up again, a song and an image are two streams of data, not just one, so again it would use .oga instead of .ogg. This also prevents breaking existing players that don't support embeded images.--[[User:Saoshyant|Ivo]] 08:48, 25 January 2008 (PST)
:: Ivo, can you direct me to samples of multiple-stream .oga in the wild, or better yet, Windows and/or Linux tutorials?--[[User:SamN3]]
foobar2000's plugin OggPreview can create as many chained Vorbis streams inside a single Ogg file as you want, and each of them can keep its own metadata.--[[User:Saoshyant|Ivo]] 17:57, 23 August 2008 (PDT)
