Why buy winamp Pro when QCD can encode for FREE!

Ogg rules.

I turned an mp3 into an ogg file (using this plugin, heh), but I don't really notice any difference, aside from the large file size... can anyone say what are the advantages of ogg?

To gzero3k: You would not notice any difference by turning an already lossy format to another. You could even get an even worse output this way. Try converting a .wav to an .ogg. From my experience, even @ 128 kbps there is a clearly audible difference in quality. Furthermore .ogg compresses better (around 0.5 MB less for a 4-5 minute song) than .mp3 while also managing to sound better overall. And of course there is always the point with being a free (as in beer AND in speech) format, safe from DRM tricks, copyright patents etc.

This is a good ogg encoder, but it gets a 95 becayse the quality isn't as good as other encoders at lower bitrates. To really notice the difference, find a lossless version of a song (eg. off a cd) and try converting it to mp3 and ogg at the same bitrate. The filesize should be about the same, but the ogg file will sound much better.

Surpasses all other lossy codecs! Ogg Rules! One thing i'd like on this plug-in is like on the LAME plug-in - to specify and external command line exe encoder. Yeah theres the CLI but that requires a bit of setting up.

There is a new Ogg Vorbis lib out! Will the QCD plugin be updated soon? http://developers.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=04/09/27/0214226&tid=141&tid=8

Awesome. How much better can it get? You get the best player, LAME, OGG, and WMA, and the ability to convert all in one package. All I need now is the ability to burn audio and MP3/Media CD's from here. Oh, and it's all free to boot! Goodbye Winamp and Windows Media Player 10!

Who needs MP3, I ask you!?! Especially now that the player manufacturers like i-River are now including ogg support. Brilliant!!!!

I think Ogg is the best lossy format out there.

Thing is that since i have made full spectrum analysis on CD, mp3 160 and ogg 160 (of the same song ofcourse) i started to hate mp3. mp3 is uncompareable worse than ogg. Now i use mp3 only on my mp3 player. It's not hard for me to convert few songs to mp3 since i will be listening to them for next 2 months. ogg simply rules!
