In that case we just need tools that do this. -Or rather the tools that
do it for mp3 files need to accept ogg vorbis format aswell.
-On that topic, I have been using MediaJukebox as my player since about
Ver 7. It has always played vorbis files and I'm pretty sure the
CD-Burner tool it has would accept ogg's as input. (I haven't tried it
myself, but reading the Help on the topic indicates that it will burn
from any PLAYLIST you give it, and it mentions that it uses a "convert
to wav" stage in the burning process. -So I can only assume that it
accepts the formats that it can play/decode.
