Abstract

   The Ogg Bitstream Format aims at becoming a general, freely-available
   standard for transporting multimedia content across computing
   platforms and networks.  The intention of this document is to define
   the MIME media type application/ogg to refer to this kind of content
   when transported across the Internet.  It is the intention of the Ogg
   Bitstream Format developers that it be usable without intellectual
   property concerns.

Conventions used in this Document

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119 [2].

1. The Ogg Bitstream Format

   The Ogg Bitstream format has been developed as a part of a larger
   project aimed at creating a set of components for the coding and
   decoding of multimedia content (codecs) which are to be freely
   available and freely re-implementable both in software and in
   hardware for the computing community at large, including the Internet
   community.

   Raw packets from these codecs may be used directly by transport
   mechanisms that provide their own framing and packet-separation
   mechanisms (such as UDP datagrams).
