OGM (OGG Files)

I have a question about OGM or OGG files.

I recently downloaded some and when I tried to open them I couldn't get them to play.

So, I searched on the WEB, found the following site

I downloaded the files and was able to get video. However, I cannot get any audio whatsoever.

Does any one no if I need to do something else to get the audio track to play?

Thank you

I did some more searching after I made my first post and found the following site.

I downloaded the player and was able to get both audio and video.

Even so if any knows how to play OGM via WMP then please let me know?

It seems from

the site you posted in your first post;
that WMP has problems with OGG (OGM) files.

Did you download and install all of the files suggested in that web site, and then go through the procedures listed?

What about the trouble shooting, (Memo), section? ie did you update your DirectX?

Did you try mplayer2.exe?

I notice you now have a player that works. Sometimes, WMP just doesn't, and you may have to accept the workaround you have already found.

OGM is a container format like AVI, only it's designed to use Ogg Vorbis for the audio. So you'll need to download the Ogg Vorbis codec from somewhere in order to get any audio.

What you might try doing, is downloading a copy of ffdshow. It's an all-in-one video decoder package that also has an all-in-one audio decoder that can handle a multitude of different formats, including Vorbis.

Thanks for the suggestions. What I have now seems to be working OK. If I get stuck again, I will try the things mentioned here.
