ogg does no compression. It just defines how to pack data into packages.
This data can be vorbis compressed, flac or probably even raw audio

Hhm, the main difference I see here is that mp3 and ogg are server based
sreaming externals. So one needs a server running to connect to. No
direct connection between apps like with streamin/out~. Yves has made a
similar thing with mp3, but it's in no way compatible to 'ordinary' mp3
