How to convert OGG to MP3 with Free Audio Converter

How to convert OGG to MP3 with Free Audio Converter

If you are a Linux user or a software/game developer, then you have probably heard about the new OGG Vorbis audio format. If not, OGG is an open-source audio file format that applies better compression rates than the popular MP3. For example, an OGG file, compressed at the same bitrate as an MP3, will occupy less disk space, while an OGG file of the same size as an MP3 will have a better quality. The great thing about OGG is that it is free to use (you won't have to worry about licensing), so you can include them in your software and computer games without paying any fees. Despite the many advantages that OGG files have over the MP3 format, this file type doesn't enjoy the support that the latter does, therefore, converting these types of files can come in handy if your favorite music player or audio editor can't open OGG. It can also be quite useful if you want to listen to your favorite songs on your smartphone or any other hand-held device.

For demonstrating the conversion process I have chosen Free Audio Converter 5.0 from DVDVideoSoft Ltd,  because it is a highly-ranked, free-to-use, and efficient application that will help you complete the job in no time. It can also save your time by allowing you to change an entire OGG music collection into MP3 files in one go (batch conversion).
