Every format gets eventually a common "word" which makes it easier to say.
For instance:

jpeg - jay-peg
gif - giff (guh-iff, not juh-iff)
etc. etc.

It would be interesting to see what SVG becomes.

My personal favorite right now is "Savage"
As in:

"could you send me those Savage files?"
"Did you download the Savage Player?"

It sounds better than "ess vee gee"
