ogg vorbis music with M1A1-SE v1.6 (Special Ed)

I just discovered all the 9/06 updates on the Orbital Arm page...downloading & installing lots of stuff generated one major,& a few minor questions; I'll post just the Major question here:
I use this Windows Program to play the Original Marathon: M1A1-SE v1.6 (Special Edition)
by Raul Bonilla and Randall J. Currie
I WANT to use this music : "M1A1-SE Ogg Vorbis tracks"
Call me crazy but as a general rule,I find ogg vorbis better than Mp3s.
In fact,the orbital arm page says:
"If you want the Special Edition M1A1 music, you must download the M1A1-SE Ogg Vorbis tracks (65.2MB in Zip format)."
However,these instructions don't seem to work.
I placed the folder "M1A1 Tracks" in the main M1A1 folder...though I note if you read the file "About Tracks.txt" inside the ogg vorbis download it gives the nonsensical instructions "Place here the mp3 tracks you downloaded from the web."
...but these are ogg vorbis files,NOT mp3 files.
In addition,I tried every variation of sound settings,with no music heard.
Finally,I downloaded instead the mp3 music files,which I really don't want called: "M1A1-SE MP3 tracks"
if I place these in a folder called M1A1 tracks then yes,I can here all the music again.
Which brings me back to my original question:
Is there any way to use the ogg vorbus tracks with M1A1-SE v1.6 (Special Edition)? If so,any opinions to how it compares to the Hardgrove mp3 "re-workings" in their mp3 format..?
