What reason do you think ?

Any player can play mp3, but not all can play ogg, you will need a plugin for those that can't play... meh can't be arsed to download plugins for stuff... just keep it mp3 instead.......... but like I read, seems like mp3 is not free or whatever the chit chat was about.. meh.... who cares, I've never payed for anything like this....
Any Amiga can play mp3 if you have "additional hardware". An 030 can play mp3 at quarter quality in mono or something. only an 060 can play mp3 at full quality (if you have a soundcard).

I didn't actually have the Amiga in mind when I made this feature. It started as a way for me to listen to the tunes away from home type thing.

all "decent" media player software for windows/linux/osx supports ogg.

Oh and even if you did need a plugin, it is "one" plugin. as opposed to the multitude of players/plugins you would need to play all the tunes you can now listen to as ogg.
