Direct Show Ogg Vorbis Filter enables the client to play audio files rendered in the Ogg Vorbis compression format, through Windows Media Player or other Direct Show players such as BSPlayer and Foobar 2000.
Direct Show is a type of media framework developed by Microsoft to provide users with an application to develop software that is able to run on Windows Media Player and Direct Show players, based on the COM (Component Object Model) framework from Microsoft.
Direct Show includes filters that function as decoders for popular media formats such as WMA, WMV, MIDI, AVI, ASF and WAV. To enable other formats to be played on supported media players, Direct Show has the capability to expand its filters. By default, filters for the aforementioned media formats are loaded in Direct Show, but expansion of filters allow for the inclusion of other filters for decoding and encoding media streams, including filters for the Ogg Vorbis format.
The Ogg Vorbis filter is generally included in a Direct Show Ogg Filter pack which means that it is offered alongside other Ogg filters such as Ogg Speex, Ogg Theora and Ogg FLAC.
File.org aims to be the go-to resource for file type- and related software information. We spend countless hours researching various file formats and software that can open, convert, create or otherwise work with those files.
