Topic: MP3 or FLAC

Just curious as to the preferred  format.

Re: MP3 or FLAC

My android converts everything for me anyway and i know flac means alot to some but i'm so damn simple i could never really tell the difference anyways.

Yeah I get you.
Anyways it's  still probably a good little poll to see if people wanna have any input on the forum torrent wise.

Re: MP3 or FLAC

I prefer mp3 because I can just chuck it on my ipod, and yeah, really can't tell the difference. I mean this is in most cases low budget punk stuff, not highly produced top 40 crap so I don't know.
But either way, i appreciate the uploads so if it's in flac I can just convert it myself.

Re: MP3 or FLAC

flac is nice, especially on a good quality stereo set up, but i usually grab mp3 if i can find it cuz i can fit more on my tired old computer and my ISP doesnt throttle me for using ass loads of bandwidth

Re: MP3 or FLAC

I think if I had a better stereo system I would want the higher quality format, but honestly the methods I use, im just as good with mp3.

Re: MP3 or FLAC

FLAC. I suppose to keep everyone happy it would be good practice to upload both in the same torrent (2 folders). That way members can pick and choose with the client.

Re: MP3 or FLAC

Yea i dont have a good enough music player or listen enough to ever really worry about flac. So i always grab mp3 where i can. On that topic though, can anyone recommend a good program to convert?

I have now got internet hooked up and have gone through and started seeding some of my old torrents, If there is anything extra you want or something i am not seeding please send me a message!

Re: MP3 or FLAC

spent the past 16 years downloading mp3s so the past few years ive prefered to start upgrading to flac, you can do so much more with flac (conversion wise)

i really grabbed it when i needed to convert some flac files to my phone before a trip, but i have a feeling there is something better.

Re: MP3 or FLAC

you guys talking open source, or a program you have to buy/torrent?

I used to use Nero a lot, but its been a while. You have to pay for that, or torrent a key however. Not sure if it still good, but a few years back it was a very good program for music and video

Re: MP3 or FLAC

The best way for optimum quality is to decode the flac files to wav with FLAC Frontend, then compress the wav files to mp3 using Exact Audio Copy.

Re: MP3 or FLAC

i use audacity to convert my audio files or edit bad spots out
