>This sadly means that there's apparently little time to e.g. review the AoTuV changes.Then the reigns should be passed on to a suitale replacement (advertise for one), having someone who is effectively a spanner in the works (nothing against monty, but that is how it appears) is counter productive.
The primary reason it will not be named Vorbis II is because the codecs have virtually nothing in common. I know that doesn't stop MPEG, I don't really care.
I'll incorporate the nifty image into my sigs
[..] IMHO http://vorbis.com/ is better for someone new to Ogg Vorbis [...]
So, I’ll be using the xiph fish with a link to vorbis.com :-) but there is something that I find confusing there:http://vorbis.com/setup_windows/DirectShow based players only need the Illiminable filters from above.I think it should read:Only DirectShow based players need the Illiminable filters from above.Am I right, or is it my English?
Also, VLC is not listed on the above page (while it is listed on the Linux and OS X pages) :-|
...MPC can't even play Ogg Vorbis without a DS decoder...
Okay, you have a point there, jorsol.

What do they say? Is this Japanese? I think I’m going to use them anyway. :-)
That's good news! Thanks for the link. I'll incorporate the nifty image into my sigs (in other forums, that is )Edit:Bleh, their link: http://www.fsf.org/resources/formats/playogg consumes a lot of BBsig chara's.I've shortened it to: http://tinyurl.com/2b7l5e
What a pig's ear of a page! I've no right to complain, since I don't use the format (although I have in the past), and was only reading all the current HA threads out of curiosity. But not only does the page look horrible it invokes horizontal scrolling - which is a big no-no in web design. Or at any rate it does in my browser, perhaps not in all. Perhaps it's a coding error - the page doesn't validate.
