Multimedia, AV Everytime we feature a multimedia device review here at OSNews the question is always the same: "...but does it support OGG?". Well, this time we do have such a device in our lab to test out for you. Geeks.com sent us in the iRiver E10, a powerful multimedia music and video player.

Ogg compatability

I've personally noticed that some OGG-supporting software only works with newer vorbis files, as the binary (vorbis) format was frozen in 2000 - so if you have some really really old Oggs (as I do) they may not be supported. Some people have reported that newer Oggs have problems as well, but I've not personally witnessed this - and re-encoding to upgrade the format isn't a problem since there are plenty of conversion tools:
