1. Introduction

   The Ogg bitstream format has been developed as a part of a larger

   project aimed at creating a set of components for the coding and

   decoding of multimedia content (codecs) which are to be freely

   available and freely re-implementable, both in software and in

   hardware for the computing community at large, including the Internet

   community.  It is the intention of the Ogg developers represented by

   Xiph.Org that it be usable without intellectual property concerns.

   This document describes the Ogg bitstream format and how to use it to

   encapsulate one or several media bitstreams created b...
