(Not to be a prick, but this is one of my geekly peeves.)

In *my* universe, Ogg doesn't compress anything, being a container
format.

On the other hand, Vorbis (which you ju'osai meant), does compress at
about 1MB per minute. Although Speex would probably do better for this,
except that he likes to use background music, which probably wouldn't do
so well in Speex.
