One Day One GNU/Linux Command 

ogginfo -- Gives information about Ogg files.


OGG Vorbis is a new audio compression format. It is different from
these other formats because it is completely free, open & unpatented.
It is roughly comparable to other formats used to store & play digital
music, such as MP3, VQF, AAC, and other digital audio formats.

ogginfo reads one or more Ogg files and prints information about
stream contents. It will detect a wide range of common defects, with
many additional checks specifically for Ogg Vorbis streams.


$ locate .ogg -- Search for some OGG files in your system.

$ ogginfo /usr/share/redhat-credits.ogg -- Show the detailed info 
                                           about that ogg file.

$ ogginfo -q /usr/share/redhat-credits.ogg -- Show warning and errors

$ ogginfo -qq /usr/share/redhat-credits.ogg -- Show only errors. 

Read: man ogginfo

HTH :)
