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

  • 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:
    • Audio:
    • Video:
      • 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.
    • Text & Hyperlinking:
      • OggWrit: Text phrase codec (e.g. subtitles)
      • CMML: Continuous Media Markup Language, used for Annodex and subtitles (xine and gstreamer support)
  • 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
