AAC & size
Authored by: kkthompson on Jul 26, '02 10:52:11AM
You'll know exactly what the space savings will come too. But first you have to find out what you can bare as far as quality goes. Remember for the most part, the CODECs will produce the same size file when using the same Bit rate. You can just get away with lower bit rates using AAC. Some friends have been experimenting on the PC and says they can't here the difference between a AAC file of 128 to 160 compared to ~196 kbps MP3 (depending on the type of music, etc.). YMMV. There is also this Script, from the gentleman who brought us wonderful Lame encoding script. Keep in mind that these won't play on the iPod yet. Cross your fingers for a firmware update soon.
