MP3 Killer?
Authored by: swgs on Apr 25, '02 08:55:38AM

Ummmm, maybe it's just me, but what if we dont want an MP3 killer? I have so many files in MP3 right now, i dont want to have to find them again, or rip them again. Give me a utility that converts from MP3 to Ogg Vorbis, and i'll consider it, that and if my iPod supports it.

This was always my biggest fear 4 years ago when i started building my MP3 collection, that i would have a collection of thousands of songs, and then all of a sudden, the computer world would decide MP3 wasnt good enough.

There is no harm in having both. Keep what you have in MP3 and you can encode new stuff in Ogg Vorbis or whatever. Having said that, I have not yet been impressed with Ogg Vorbis. I have not tried this version, but past versions had sound quality that to me not only didn't seem any better, it actually seemed worse. On top of that, encoding and playback was much more processor intensive than MP3. Worse sound and more processor intensive. Hmm.... I'll give it another shot, though - maybe my past experience was a fluke.
