There's two ways to embed Ogg Audio AKA Vorbis in a web page:
* the <audio> tag of HTML 5, but it works only in the Firefox and Opera browsers
* the Cortado player, which works everywhere and it's easy to
configure, but computers need to have the Java engine installed (if
the computer uses then it has Java support)

Alternative ways are to tell them to use Winamp in Windows, or install
the codecs for Windows Media Player/Quicktime.

The same advice also works for Ogg Video AKA Theora, except instead of
the <audio> tag, one would use the <video> tag.  Windows Media Player
and Quicktime can also work with Ogg Video if the codecs are

This is true, but Mr. Praveen, there's one thing you need to
understand, Ogg is not backed by a big corporation.  Ogg is supported
by the common people like you, and if the common people don't do their
contribution to make sure Ogg works everywhere, then Ogg dies.  The
most important contribution is to publish and share Ogg files on the
Internet and in real life.
