Firstly, a BIG thankyou to the developers of SermonSpeaker. It's simply sensational and there really isn't anything else that'll do the job so well. Thanks again.

To my question [and I've had a cursory look/n/search on the 3.x forum];

rather than streaming mp3, is it possible to stream [audio] ogg?
There's 2 reasons for me wanting to use ogg;
1. smaller size for a given audio recording
2. [and i'm a bit confused on this one] no copyright/patent hassles for streaming our own [that's our church's] podcasts currently using mp3 technology [does a church have to worry about that?]

As you may have gathered, I'm a noobie and will gladly stand corrected on my misgivings.

As I understand it there is no need for a license for creating and streaming own files. The mp3 license has to be paid by the one who uses the code in the recording software. This means you usually have to pay for a software that can write mp3.

SermonSpeaker uses the JW Flash player from longtail. According to their tech specs ( www.longtailvideo.com/players/jw-player/tech-specs/ ) the Flash player doesn't support ogg, but the HTML5 fallback does depeneding on the browser.
