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...
