> I started collecting MP3s in about 2001, and if I try to play any of the tracks I downloaded back then, even the stuff I grabbed at 320kbps, they just sound like crap. The bass is terrible, the midrange…well don’t get me started. Some of those albums have degraded down to 32 or even 16kbps. FLAC rips from the same period still sound great, even if they weren’t stored correctly, in a cool, dry place. Seriously, stick to FLAC, you may not be able to hear the difference now, but in a year or two, you’ll be glad you did.
[10-30, 14:06] <Senzura
> Hearing the difference now isn’t the reason to encode to FLAC. FLAC uses lossless compression, while MP3 is ‘lossy’. What this means is that for each year the MP3 sits on your hard drive, it will lose roughly 12kbps, assuming you have SATA – it’s about 15kbps on IDE, but only 7kbps on SCSI, due to rotational velocidensity. You don’t want to know how much worse it is on CD-ROM or other optical media.

[10-30, 10:46] <[TRVE]
> MP3 at 320kbps CBR is a bad choice because people tend to forget that this setting automatically uses "full stereo" (for a lack of a better term) which encodes both channels as is. At "joint stereo" the result is alright for many recordings. And yes, both that and VBR V0 are the technical limits of mp3.

> Oh, were we talking about audio tracks for motion pictures?
[10-30, 09:48] <sephirotic
> Also, FLAC is good as storage/future-proofing? Yes, for MUSIC, not for anime, for fuck sake. For anime it's completely pointless. I've chopped off over 300gb of pure useless audio data in the last years just from reencoding my animus ST from FLAC to AAC. Call this useless data. We don´t need to worry with "future-proofing" for video's audio. AAC will be supported indefenitely even when a new format come up. No one needs the extra quality preserved for transcoding in video format, not even AMV makers. Hell, even mp2 is still supporter today, a format over 20 yeras old. Even if you need to re-transcode an anime episode you could just remux the Audio anyway, so no lossy-lossy conversion issues.
[10-30, 09:44] <sephirotic
> No, 320kbs mp3 are horrid choice. VBRV0 has better otimization than CBR 320 and is a more efficient setting for Lame. Despite this V0 is also overkill. Even tough mp3 has problem with several samples, for most stuff it'll become completely transparent at V2 (~200kbps) even with people with above the average hearing.

[10-30, 03:34] <Stinky Cheez
> Both .mkv and .mp4 are not codecs
; bringing them up is a complete non sequitur. They are containers, and both can contain a wide variety of different types of audio/video encoding. And with that said, how widely a codec or container is currently supported is not the best basis for arguing for its superiority; otherwise, .mp3s would have to be considered the BEST audio format possible. For the sake of fuck, people.

> FLAC is the best to download but not the best to be used in your smartphone, the sd cant handle the size. 320kbs mp3 is just the best to be used everywhere but not always to be downloaded.
[10-29, 23:57] <sephirotic
> I've fallen for this "muh freedom" bullshit before when vorbis first came out and showed results better than lame. I really tought it was going to be the future format. Turns out, it became obsolet and AAC won the format battle thanks to large corporations supporting it. Had to re-rip all of my old AoTuV albuns to AAC after a pointless 6~8 years wait for better support. Even my old nokia 8350 from 8 yeras ago reproduced AAC while only recently, 8 years later thanks to android, old deprecated codecs have become available again. Now is too late, I won´t be goig back to vorbis neither another "empty promisse" like Opus. Better to just stick with AAC which is supported pretty much everywhere, specially on my car's audio and BD-player. Fuck Opus.
[10-29, 23:52] <sephirotic
> That's precisely the point. Opus is some hipster "Muh freedom" bullshit, even if it was better than AAC at 192, 160 or even 128 which is not, it wouldn´t matter since compatibility and future proofing, specially when talking about video, is very important.
[10-29, 23:49] <herkz

[10-29, 23:19] <56563117
