OGG, an open-source format, has been advancing towards new areas of victory with the help of numerous unnamed developers and fans. Time to use our ALAC to OGG Converter to convert ALAC files to OGG format.

Glossary:

 

Apple Lossless (also known as Apple Lossless Encoder, ALE, or Apple Lossless Audio Codec, ALAC) is an audio codec developed by Apple Inc. for lossless data compression of digital music.Apple Lossless data is stored within an MP4 container with the filename extension .m4a. It is not a variant of AAC (which is a lossy format), but a distinct lossless format that uses linear prediction similar to other lossless codecs such as FLAC and Shorten.All current iPod players can play Apple Lossless-encoded files. It does not use any digital rights management (DRM) scheme, but by the nature of the container, it is thought that DRM could be applied to ALAC much the same way it can with other files in QuickTime containers.

 

Ogg is a free, open standard container format maintained by the Xiph.Org Foundation. The creators of the Ogg format claim that it is unrestricted by software patents and is designed to provide for efficient streaming and manipulation of high quality digital multimedia.
The Ogg container format can multiplex a number of independent streams for audio, video, text (such as subtitles), and metadata.
