quite the amazing results as of late with Vorbis destined to snatch second place (1 vote away) from MPC.

This poll was started on Feb 25 2005, 03:46 AM. I wonder if it wouldn't be a good idea to close it on Feb 25 2006, and start a new one, which will be open for one year only. That way, we could analyse the overall behaviour of HA members/readers.
There are currently three polls on the same subject (the current one, and this one plus this one.
Behaviour are slwoly changing.

AAC: 5.60% -> 11.14% -> 10.99%
MPC: 29.60% -> 28.45% -> 25.18%
Vorbis: 24.85% -> 20.38% -> 25.89%
MP3: 32.32% -> 28.01% -> 35.46%

MP3 isn't dying at all (first poll was started in 2002). AAC has progressed, but is currently not well represented in the polls (it might quickly change). MPC is still popular, but is progressively loosing users.

I agree with you guruboolez. And we must reach at least 1000 votes, that would said more exactly the behaviour of HA members/readers.

my proposal is to add lossless to the poll, yes this is a lossy poll, but will be nice how many people are using only lossless codecs.

Great use of a vote...and now it's surpassed MPC, finally! 

I agree with Guru and think a new poll definitely makes sense...because people (and codecs) change.

AAC doesn't excite me one bit...so much hype, so little delivery (with the exception of 64 kbps and below).

Hey,

so you have to do 2 votes, one for high bitrate and transparent/audiophile usage and one for ultra mobile, streaming, etc. low bitrate usage..

I think that MP3 (Lame 3.97b2 and above) and Ogg Vorbis (especially aoTuV beta 4.51/Lancer builts) are better for high bitrate (~130 kbps and above) and HE-AAC and now AACPlus2 is the best for low bitrates (~64 kbps and lower).

But this maybe changes with future aoTuV optimizations like beta 5 or 6..

aoTuV beta 4.51 w/ -q5 and Lame 3.97b2 w/ -v3 --new-vbr are very good, mostly transparently..

best regards,

So...it's been over a year since the last one was started.  How about a new one?  As a lowly board plebian, I have no permission to create a new poll.
