**Edit** Because I apparently really need to spell this out, lossy format to lossy format is not preferred and it will degrade the quality of the output audio. Most people know this, but I am spelling it out super clearly again, for those who are not hearing this during the video. Must be a burst of white noise during the disclaimer or something.
Have a CD collection sitting around waiting to find its place in your new Ubuntu lifestyle? Maybe you have existing non-DRM protected MP3s on Ubuntu and are looking for way to listen to them on Ubuntu without resorting to using MP3 considering its gray area of use.
This video will discuss OGG as an alternative, what it is and why you would want to use it. And perhaps most importantly, a solid portable music device that will support your music once it has been converted. You will learn about converting music into OGG from your CD and even from existing MP3s.
