OGG to AIFF converter
OGG is a free, open-source file format developed for audio and video data. It is commonly used for streaming media over the Internet and as a basis for streaming protocols like RTSP and Icecast. OGG files are typically compressed using the Vorbis audio encoding format but may also use other audio formats like Speex.
Compared to other comparable file formats, OGG files provide greater compression and reduce file size without sacrificing audio quality. Despite their smaller size, OGG files still store much more information than MP3 files. As a result, this file format is often used by music producers who want to distribute their music without sacrificing audio quality.
The Audio Interchange File Format (AIFF) is a file format for storing high-quality audio data. It was developed by Apple Inc. in 1987 and is used commonly in the Mac OS operating system and its associated applications, though it can be found on other platforms as well. An AIFF file can store many different types of audio data, including samples taken from analog sources such as vinyl records and standard CD-quality audio.
AIFF files are uncompressed, making them larger than lossy compressed formats like MP3 and AAC -- but also providing better audio quality overall. Additionally, AIFF supports metadata tags like artist name and track title, allowing audio players to quickly identify the audio file's contents. While less common today than MP3 and other formats, AIFF still enjoys a following among audiophiles, musicians, and other audio professionals.
