    Why use OGG files instead of mp3s?

    How much space does it save when you compare it to mp3?

    what windows programs convert cds to ogg?

    gracias.

    I downloaded cdex to make Ogg files. From the Cdex help file:

    "Ogg" is the most common name for the Ogg Vorbis sound file format, Fraunhofer-free compression format. Ogg files typically have slightly better quality than MP3s of the same size, but take a longer to encode. Ogg Vorbis files typically have the extension ".ogg". See: http://www.vorbis.com/ "

    Cdex is free, and can be found at:

    http://cdexos.sourceforge.net/

    I haven't really used Cdex much yet, but others seem to love it. And it's free.

    When I converted a 128 bit rate MP3 to Ogg, it reduced the file size from 4 MB to 1.7MB.

    I use dbPowerAmp to rip to .ogg. I think I had to download a codec to do it but maybe not. I forget.

    I'm planning on using .ogg exclusively for my Treo, it sounds the same and saves space.
