OGA (Ogg Vorbis Audio File)

The OGA Audio file format

OGA files are audio files developed by Xiph.Org. More precisely, it's an audio container file that can use different encoding methods. OGA is the lesser-known and -used file format from Ogg Vorbis. Usually, these audio files use the OGG format.

Technical details of OGA files

OGA files can use different audio codecs, such as Ogg FLAC, Ghost, OggPCM or less recommended codecs like Ogg Vorbis and Speex. The latter two might not be 100% compatible with the OGA format. Instead, Xiph.Org recommends using the OGG file format for audio files encoded using either Ogg Vorbis or Speex. In addition, Xiph.Org released a codec pack called DirectShow that allows the support of OGA for different open-source or commercial Windows programs and applications.
