I suppose you mean sending ogg inside RTP over a UDP multicast network.
No RTP payload has been defined for ogg itself but theora and vorbis

There is an RTSP library (and some example apps) built on top of
gstreamer that you can use for streaming theora/vorbis here:

Alternatively you don't need an RTSP server if you are going send stuff
over UDP multicast. You could write an gst-launch line to start a sender
and then use an SDP file on a server somewhere to make a client join the
multicast group and receive the file.
