CNET GLOSSARY: Terms for the techie
This is an open-source codec, meaning (among other things) that no one has to pay licensing fees when it's used, unlike codecs such as MP3, WMA, or AAC. Many focus groups claim that music files compressed by the Ogg Vorbis codec (extension: OGG) sound better than those created with commercial codecs.
