[solved] If I use songs that are ".OGG" format, will they play correctly on Android and iOS devices?

There are many songs on my game and they're ".mp3" format. Converting those files to ".ogg" they get smaller (less MB).

But my doubt is: will they (".ogg" songs) work correctly on Android and iOS devices?

Thank you :)

Yes.

As of a few versions ago, Ren'Py bundles the audio player, so the formats it supports are the same across platforms.

The only place where this is an issue is full-screen video, which is platform-specific for speed reasons.
