Thanks for correction. Maybe there's only laziness factor involved then,
or maybe the decoder relies on floating point operations which cheap
units doesn't do, I can't tell then. I can tell though that cheap
portable music players read MP3 and don't read Ogg Vorbis files (after
all these years of education!) This stinks.

This doesn't help if someone wants to make a decoding device with no
additional cost over what they consider a must. Makers of the $20 MP3
players/$50 DVD players won't afford it :) Too bad they don't include
support even though they have a ready-to-use BSD-licensed decoder.

I guess we agree and can end this offtopic discussion :)
