Vorbis (OGG) is a patent free, open source digital music format similar, but superior, to MP3. The VGMPF uses Vorbis for all recorded soundtracks. To learn more about Vorbis and OGG files, including why we use it and how to record into it, read the Vorbis Tutorial.

Vorbis is part of the Ogg media container and supported natively by Android, foobar2000, VLC, Winamp, and more. There are also plugins below that give Vorbis support to Windows Media Player, QuickTime, and iTunes. Additional players can be and found at vorbis.org.

Vorbis also has feature to support multiple tracks with the extension *.mogg (like AY, SID or SAP). Mostly it's used for multitrack ripped songs.

How to Obtain

OGG files usually have to be extracted from a game's resource files, although they're sometimes left as is.
