The default ripper for Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid), SoundJuicer, has changed the extension of its ogg files from .ogg to .oga. I ripped a CD and added it to my music root and started a server scan. The SoundBridge and RhythmBox connected via DAAP couldn’t find the new music, until I looked under artist “Unknown.” Apparently the metadata was not being read.
I added oga as a filetype and extension, and modified the transcoding script so that it would know oga was an ogg file.
I ran the ripped files through EasyTag and it reported errors, which it fixed. I did another scan and restarted firefly, but had the same result.
The result of running ogginfo on one of the files is:
[email protected]:/mnt/mymedia/lossy/Joe Cocker – The Best of Joe Cocker$ ogginfo 02 – You Can Leave Your Hat On.oga

On a hunch, I renamed the file extension to .ogg, and it seems to work. What can I do so that firefly media server can process these .oga files without having to rename them?
