Vorbis is a patent-clear, fully open general purpose audio encoding format standard that rivals or surpasses the 'upcoming' generation of proprietary coders (AAC and TwinVQ, also known as VQF). Vorbis is most often used in the Ogg container format. It is then called Ogg Vorbis.

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Further, many players support Ogg Vorbis; see vorbis.com (beware, outdated!) for a list of all the players we know about.
