I have a 80GB ipod and I'm wanting to play Vorbis on it.

I know rockbox isn't supporting the 80GB at the moment, but I don't know anything about ipod linux and the 80gb, I'm not even certain it supports vorbis anyway.

What do you think my options are for this? Wait for rockbox to be released on the 80gb?

how often do you listen to your iPod for 15 hours without recharging?

From this posting, I got this page.

These tests indicate that rockbox playing time is even worse than 15 hours. It's more like 50% of the original playing time.

Get up-to-date binaries of Lame, AAC, Vorbis and much more at RareWares:

Playing formats like OGG also cause more processor power to be used so the battery time is even less.

Ogg is actually very fast. On the Ipod, its slower only then MPC+some lossless formats, and can do real time decode at around 35MHz on an ARM7 core. The poor ipod runtime is due to no one knowing how to disable all the onboard crap on the PP CPU used in the Ipod.
