Probably because no one knows what flac is. :U


I wish people would wake up and stop supporting mp3


I go with .mp3 format because I'm not an audiofile, and the file size is good. I have 4,000+ songs, so roughly how much space would I need if they were all flac?


Huge difference in file size...like 6X bigger

I know what flac is and even have a few albums in that format, but tbh, mp3 is good enough. Flac takes up too damn much space and the difference isn't noticeable on my headphones and mobile anyway.

difference is huge

if you have crappy ear buds or crappy headphones sure ........

space could be a problem for some sure

but once you go from the garbage mp3 to the quality files and hear the difference it is tough to go back

I guess it depends on your idea of huge. I find most guys tend to exaggerate on that front. =P

if the speakers you listen through are average to poor it wont make a difference

but if you have the ability it makes all the difference

mp3 compression is at a huge disadvantage

Wait a minute TC. Did you used to make Youtube videos about Borderlands 2? I remember that name.

But anyway, you definitely seem like an audiofile.

You haven't made a case for anything other than it being technically different. I don't care about any non-practical difference, and even with a good sound system the difference between 320kbs mp3 and flac is not "huge" in any practical way.

Real argument is why people still think 320kbps is the "best type" of mp3 when variable bitrate should be the standard. 320kbps is even more of a waste of space than a flac is, as flac is at least lossless whereas 320kbps constant bitrate just has a bigger filesize for no damn reason.
