Notes about the OGA file extension:



To open this file type, a required software must be installed. Without it you only see a Windows message "The following file cannot be opened" (Windows 7) or "How do you want to open this file?" (Windows 10) if you double-click the file. There click on "More apps" and choose a suitable software to view such files on your PC or from email attachments.

The OGA file type is primarily associated with 'Ogg Vorbis' by Xiph.Org Foundation. Ogg is an open and standardized bitstream container format designed for streaming and manipulation. It was developed by the Xiph.Org Foundation. The file format can multiplex a number of separate independent open source CODECs for audio, video and text (e.g., subtitles). It usually contains the Vorbis or FLAC audio CODEC. Ogg's various CODECs have been incorporated into a number of different free and commercial media players as well as portable media players from different manufacturers. Applications supporting .OGA, .OGV should support decoding from muxed Ogg streams. Macintosh File Type Code(s): OggA
