<< < (5/16) > >>

You always find neat stuff I'd never know about if you didn't bring it to our attention.

- that has been my excuse for a couple years!  :mrgreen:

FYI: the new format is displayed the normal way: MP3 (not 'MP3HD').

This is bound to be awfully confusing for a while. Until now, there was a clear distinction: mp3 small and lossy, fast to download and good for portables. FLAC - lossless and big, so schedule your downloads for the night, and double-check your player can play it.

Without this distinction, everyone will always have to explain: download as mp3 here (old-style, small, lossy), or download as mp3 there (new lossless format, size XXL). I think it's a bad call. The difference is substantial enough to have warranted a dedicated file extension.

but still, it is not certain that anyone but Thomson will ever use the (MP3)HD format...

I made the GUI that you download for windows  :)

Am I the only one who thinks MP3 should've died a slow death by now?
