=== Encoding! ===
 
Drag and drop the file to be encoded from Windows Explorer onto the OggDropXPd droptarget window, and wait. The logo will spin while it is encoding: (Image capture of Lancer OggDropXPd)
 
  
[[Image:Oggdropxpd-encoding_lancer.png]]
 
  
There are 4 information shown while encoding, under the spinning logo:
 
* Last granule bitrate
 
* Current setting | encoding speed (i.e. x of real time)
 
* The lighter bar indicates the progress for the currently encoded file
 
* The darker bar indicates the total progress (i.e. when you dropped more than one source file onto OggDropXPd)
 
  
When the logo stops spinning... you're done! The resulting .ogg file can be found in the same directory as the source file.
