    I'm at work and we're making a list of the formats that MP3's take and what they stand for, So far we have...

    ASF - Advanced Systems Format
    WMA - Windows Media Audio
    MP3 - Moving Picture Experts Group Layer 3 – Audio
    IRM - Impulse Radio Modulation
    AAC - Advanced Audio Coding
    OGG - ???

    We just wanted to know what OGG stands for, does anyone know and if you know any other file types i'd be glad to hear them. Thanks :)

    Ogg isn't actually an abbreviation, it's a term from a network game that means to do something forcefully without worrying about the consequences. See here:

    Ah, I see, Its not a file format at all, its a type of conversion softwear. Thank you very much, a long time question finally answered.

    Another one for you now, Sony uses AAC but who uses TwinVQ, the other two types of transversion softwear mentioned on the first site.

    My mistake, or rather the guys' who told me :) we now concure that it is infact Apple, seeing as only our Apple products takes AAC.
    It seems that we don't need to worry about TwinVQ, interesting to know that AAC came out better in testing than MP3 though.
    Thanks.
    Are there any other interesting facts you know about MP3 players then?
