Hi, I installed ogg support to my n900, and loaded an album (.oga) to music folder. Mediaplayer doesn't show it there and is not playing it.

However when I browse the album through files and select a song from the album mediaplayer is playing it nicely.

Is there a way to make an ogg-album 'visible' to mediaplayer so I could play them directly from it?

Wouldn't really like to transform my oggs to mp3...

Cheers.

From the source of ogg-support I can see that it simply does not register the mimetype audio/ogg. You can report this as a bug here.

Rebooting the device may help. I see no problems with Ogg in the media player on my N900. But the extension of my Oggs is .ogg, not .oga, if that makes a difference.

Thanks, the extension was the problem. I renamed the songs from .oga to .ogg and everything is cool now.

I'm wondering if I should still report a bug, because my rythmbox seems to rip my cds to Ogg with oga extension, and .oga recognition would be handy...? But maybe that's not necessary...

Thanks and cheers

It only needs to register application/ogg as that is what the gstreamer typefinder will typefind it as.

But it doesn't find *.oga files, which is the recommended filetype for Vorbis audio files. The *.ogg container will be replaced with *.ogx AFAIK: http://wiki.xiph.org/MIME_Types_and_..._-_audio.2Fogg

And they wonder why no one uses OGG for music.

Yes, so I think you are right.

what a strange comment. XIPH is just following the same standard as the MP4 format and the WM format

M4A, audio only
M4B, audio books
M4V, video
MP4, container

WMA, audio
WMV; video

OGA, audio
OGG, container
OGV, video
