OGG files refer both to audio and multimedia container files. This means, that they may include compressed audio, video or text data (for example: subtitle) and metadata. This fact went out of date in the year 2007. Since that time, the Xiph.Org foundation, creator of the data container format, decided to create separate file extensions for specific types of multimedia. Other extensions of the OGG series include: OGV, OGA, OGX, OGM, SPX or the successor of the Vorbis format – OPUS.
Since 2007, the OGG extension should be used only in case of audio files.
File in the OGG format is used to store audio data in a compressed form. It utilises the OGG Vorbis sound compression method. OGG files have some common features with the MP3 files, although they can store better quality sound while maintaining the same size, and moreover, they contain metadata in form of information about artists and tracks.
The compression method used in OGG files enables quality in the range of 16-128 kb/s
When you install one of the applications from the list of programs that you found here, you should be able to open or edit the file with the OGG extension without any issue. However, if you still have problems with this, you may use the option of OGG file conversion to a different format.
We hope we helped you solve the problem with the OGG file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.
There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the OGG file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).
First - the OGG file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the OGG file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the OGG file should be solved.
Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the OGG file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
