# MonoGame audio format

MP4 AAC is a well supported playback format according to the docs, but the MonoGame content project only seems to compile MP3/WAV/WMA formats. I tried to put raw aac files in my android game but the content manager wouldnt load them, only raw wav files work, but they are large in size. I would like to know how to load aac or ogg audio files.

• What specific problem did you run into, when you say content manager wouldnt load them? Did you get an exception of some sort? – ashes999 May 27 '14 at 14:53
• @ashes999 Well there are only Content Importer options for mp3/wav/wma, no aac or ogg importer. If I try to compile aac with importer set to wma for example, I get a 'Failed to open file. Ensure the file is a valid audio file and is not DRM protected.' error. So my question is if its possible to compile aac and ogg, and if so, how? – user26471 May 28 '14 at 0:17

var sound = ContentManager.Load("blah.ogg");
