> ============
> Vorbis is a general purpose audio and music encoding format
> contemporary to MPEG-4's AAC and TwinVQ, the next generation beyond
> MPEG audio layer 3. Unlike the MPEG sponsored formats (and other
> proprietary formats such as RealAudio G2 and Windows' flavor of the
> month), the Vorbis CODEC specification belongs to the public
> domain. All the technical details are published and documented, and
> any software entity may make full use of the format without license
> fee, royalty or patent concerns.

>  (http://www.xiph.org/) 
> 
> * libvorbisfile, a BSD-style license convenience library
>  built on Vorbis designed to simplify common uses
> 
> * libvorbisenc, a BSD-style license library that provides a simple,
>  programmatic encoding setup interface
