ASO Radio Episodes are encoded in the Ogg Vorbis file format. Ogg Vorbis is a digital audio format, somewhat similiar to MP3; however, unlike MP3, Ogg Vorbis is completely free for any use and has superior quality. It is because of these reasons that ASO Radio uses Vorbis for our show.
As such, to tune into our show you need a Vorbis-capable player. Below is a list of media players ASO Radio recommends. For a more comprehensive list please see the Ogg Vorbis Web site.
