I wasn't sure I read this right. There are claims about OGG not being adopted by car radio manufactures etc because of a lack of a standard in decoding algos.

is this bull dust?

I'd like to know if there are larger manufactures that make OGG compatible car stereos. Like Kenwood, Sony, Panasonic, Philips, Blaupunkt, Pioneer etc...

I want to support OGG.

Uhm... 12 posts in 4 years... seems that you don't use this forum so mutch. Just a notice: here we have a useful 'search' button.

Anyway, check this out. Many manufacturers seems scared (or simply they don't know ?) to claim Vorbis compatibility for their players...

They could be afraid that supporting OGG may require open source code, which could lead to a host of problems when included in proprietary firmware. Not that this is actually the case, but it may be what they fear. It happened to Linksys - they were forced to reveal the sourcecode for the firmware of one of their routers because of some GPL licensing conflict. They haven't repeated that with later models.

Just offering a possible reason

Even worst: why are they so code "possessive" ? They manufacture hardware, not software ! dry.gif
In my opinion open source firmwares could spread the compatibility of *every* hardware ! blink.gif

I'm tempted to launch a "firmware & drivers liberation campign"... huh.gif
