You know, I just don't understand why ogg support isn't put into most products.
I'd think that since they don't have to license it like you would for mp3 that
they would just include it.
Perhaps it's because it's a feature that's not in strong demand like mp3 and
they don't want to pay someone to implement it in their product.
I'm still waiting for the mythical, affordable, high capacity player that
