Hello all,

The Xiph.Org Foundation would like to invite the VLC Developer Team to
join the discussion regarding the Oggless Proposal, how to improve,
what to change, etc.

The Oggless Proposal will be Xiph's official position on how to use
our formats (Vorbis, Speex, FLAC, Theora, etc.) outside the Ogg
container.  There has been interest in this, as well as incompatible
proposals and implementations on the wild, which are hurting any

As developers of a Media Player, I am sure you would not like to
support all those different implementations but a single one instead.
Thus, why we are invinting you, as well as the MPlayer and the ffmpeg
teams to create one standard way of doing it.

If you would like to join the effort, be sure to read the current
proposal[1] and either edit it directly, or discuss changes on the
ogg-dev[2] mailing list.

Best regards,
Ivo Emanuel Gonçalves,
Xiph.Org Foundation
