    What is this? I think it is a compression format, yeh? Apparantly supported by iRiver?

    I have heard a lot of praise of this. But how does it differ from others? What makes it better?

    Cheers.

    Read here for details of most lossy formats (including OggVorbis):

    http://www.mp3developments.com/article4.php

    Ogg Vorbis is no better, no worse technically than the other main lossy formats (ie, AAC, ATRAC and WMA), but is free-to-use (ie, without patent or licensing requirement), which is possibly why some people claim it to be better.

    However, major DAP makers are probably not going to include it in their list of supported formats any time soon, as they are keen to show the major music producers that their products support DRM.
