I think you missed the thrust of my post,  (or I didn't express myself 
very well), ogg players aren't the secret I meant - the open source 
coolplayer is not very well known.  I know that Winamp can play ogg & 
you can get a plug in for media player too.  The point is that 
coolplayer is a very small - small enough to email even on dial-up & is 
open source & can be given out freely with your oggs, I have done this.  
They do not have to install it to use it. Ogg made easy. 
hope this clears things up
