Media files on ISOCWiki
Some ISOCWiki articles contain sound and video files
Some ISOCWiki articles include sound or video files. The purpose of this page is to explain how to play sound and video files found on ISOCWiki.
ISOCWiki media files can be played on almost all personal computers. However, your computer must have the right software.
If your computer does not automatically play these files when you click on them, downloading and installing free software from the Internet can enable it to do so.
Sound files on ISOCWiki generally use the Vorbis audio format. These are roughly similar to other formats used to play digital video such as MP3. The difference is that these Ogg formats are completely free, open, and unpatented. However, Microsoft Windows computers do not support these formats by default, and require additional software to play them (see below).
Music files may occasionally use the MIDI format (.MID or .MIDI extension). MIDI is usually playable without new software as most computers have a midi-enabled player and sound card.
