New: 192k Ogg Vorbis (with song title data)


Ogg Vorbis is an open-source streaming format that offers better performance than MP3. The sound of our 96k Ogg stream compares favorably to even our 192k MP3 stream, and our new 192k Ogg stream sounds even better. Check it out.

We have not included song titles in our Ogg streams due to glitches with some players (notably VLC & certain hardware players). Since some players don't have this problem, we're now providing Ogg streams that include song title metadata. Players that reportedly don't glitch on title updates are Winamp, Audacious, foobar2000, ogg123, Rhythmbox, and Songbird.
Windows Media Links
64k/20k Windows Media (dialup or broadband)


We recommend these links only as a last resort. Most modern versions of Windows Media Player will play our MP3 or AAC links, which will give you better sound quality.
