Ogg/Vorbis Audio Player for the Tungsten T
A group calling themselves Aerodrome Software have released a public beta of an Ogg/Vorbis media player for the Palm Tunsgten T handheld. The player inititally supports only ogg/vorbis encoded files, a new open source audio format, but promises to have mp3 support in the near future.
The AeroPlayer plays audio files located on an external storage card. It has a plug in architecture that will allow future support for multiple audio formats via third-party decoder plug-ins such as mp3 and wave files. Ogg/Vorbis is a new open source audio format. It is comparible to other audio formats such as the popular mp3, but is completely free, open source and unpatented. Ogg Vorbis has been designed to completely replace all proprietary, patented audio formats. It claims better quality sound than mp3 at smaller file sizes.
Aerodrome claims CD-quality stereo sound playback with 4-5 hours typical battery life on a full charge using the automatic screen shut-off feature for increased battery life. As of now it only runs on the Palm Tungsten T model, though the developer claims it may run on the Sony NX series in the future.
Thanks to the many that sent in tips.
