VNUNet.com reports that "Broadcasting powerhouse the BBC has thrown its weight behind the Ogg Vorbis open source MP3 standard. The BBC opened up live streaming of Radio 4 at the start of this year to test the latest Ogg codecs, particularly the latest Release Candidate 3 which also launched at the start of the year. Ogg is an open source audio compression codec set to rival the popular MP3 format."
