This technical note briefly describes how work with Ogg Vorbis files in XO Wave on Mac OS X. Ogg Vorbis is, among other things, a patent-free alternative to the popular MP3 file format. For more info on Ogg Vorbis, visit www.vorbis.com.

Importing Ogg Files: To import Ogg format files into XO Wave, first download and install the XiphQT QuickTime component. Once it is installed, Ogg files can be imported like any other QuickTime readable file, including via drag-and-drop.

Creating Ogg Files: To create Ogg files using XO Wave, you must first export your files in another format, and then use third-party software, such as Ogg Drop, to convert to Ogg. Ogg encoding (export) is not available in XiphQT at this point, but is planned for the future.
