        This would be very useful. Wikipedia often uses this format for audio files which demonstrate word pronunciation.

        "Under consideration". No, there is nothing to be considered. It ough to be implemented ASAP.

        Stop "considerating" implementing our web standards. If you do, you'll sit there with a new IE in a few years again. Stop this, right now!

        Please pay attention to Ogg Chaining (Page 4 of RFC 3533). Most player implementations get that wrong initially.
        Good testcases are:
        - concatenate several files and check if the resulting single file can be played from beginning to end
        - Go to http://dir.xiph.org and play an Ogg/Vorbis and an Opus stream that each must show "Artist - Title" info on that page. Chaining happens upon change of song, easiest visible in the changed Artist - Title. Verify that it continues playing as the song changes (the metadata will not change on the page though).

        Please note that Icecast streams do NOT send a content length, as they are continuous streams of data. Seeking is not supported and content MUST NOT be cached. This is also valid for MP3 and AAC streams.

        Supporting Ogg container is necessary in order to use Ogg/Vorbis and Ogg/Opus in the audio tag. All other browsers (besides Apple's) support it already.

        Kind of crucial for web audio support (.ogg [vorbis] and .opus are both ogg containers)

        Skipping ogg for video support is probably not so bad, but "webm" seems to be very video-centric. vorbis and opus audio on the web seems to be all ogg format.

        I'm confident Xiph would be happy to help if you are having trouble implementing the format.
