View Full Version : [ubuntu] So i'm about to put all my cd's on to computer - OGG or MP3?

As this is going to take some time - any recommendations as to which format i should use. I'm tempted to go for OGG. Any advice is much appreciated.

if you want to play them on an mp3 player later, then, obviously, mp3. if not, then it doesn't matter too much to be honest. i have all mine in ogg because i like supporting open source formats. At a high bitrate for the conversion, i can't tell a difference between the two formats. at lower rates, i can tell that ogg is a little better.

Thanks for that. I like the idea of supporting open source formats to. Do none of the mp3 players support ogg? I've yet to buy one.

it seems IRiver (http://review.zdnet.com/4566-6490_16-0.html?filter=501502_7895942_) would be the way to go.
