Here's the Xiph bit on it:


It seems that .oga should be supported for .ogg files, but it's not a 
recommended extension for them.  In TagLib 2.0, whenever that comes 
around, I think that it'll finally make sense to move some file magic 
into TagLib itself, but right now the recommended (and documented) means 
of working with TagLib and mimetype detection is to use the file type 
resolvers to plug in the platform's file type resolution (i.e. KMimeType)
