Xiph.org Directshow Filters are designed for Ogg Vorbis, Speex, Theora, FLAC, and WebM. The main goal of this project is to offer the most comprehensive support for Xiph.org codecs on Windows and DirectShow. This package covers everything you need, including tools to decode and encode all Xiph.org formats, including Annodex.

Plus, it’s available under a BSD license, which means it can be used in both open-source and commercial applications. In addition also see the LAV Filters on here.
Some of the prominent codecs developed by Xiph.org include:
Vorbis: Vorbis is an open-source audio compression codec. It was designed to provide high-quality audio at lower bitrates. It’s often used for streaming audio and is considered a free alternative to proprietary codecs like MP3.
Speex: Speex is an audio codec specifically optimized for voice compression. Likewise it’s commonly used for voice over IP (VoIP) applications. It is also known for its ability to provide good voice quality while keeping the data rate low.
Theora: Theora is an open-source video compression codec. It was developed as a royalty-free alternative to proprietary video codecs like MPEG-4. Theora is used for web video and other multimedia applications.
FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec): FLAC is a lossless audio codec, which means it can compress audio data without any loss in quality. It’s a popular choice for archiving high-quality audio files while saving space. Likewise also see the madFLAC on here.
Opus: While not originally developed by Xiph.org, Opus is an audio codec that Xiph.org has been involved with. In addition, Opus is designed for both speech and general audio and is known for its low latency and excellent quality.
WebM: WebM is a multimedia format that includes the VP8 video codec and Vorbis audio codec. Likewise it’s designed for web video and is widely supported by web browsers.
Additionally these Xiph.org codecs are open-source. Which means that their source code is freely available for anyone to use, modify, and distribute, promoting open and royalty-free multimedia standards. Lastly also see the LameXP as well as the LameDropXPd.
