Which lossy format are you using? Reply #150 – 2004-06-09 10:00:54 For what it is worth, i belive the MPC format is still way to "unknown" to the masses. Sure you got mpc support in the most used soft. players, but from a user point of view, the mp3 format will still be the favourite as hardware suport goes.MPC is in my mind the best a lossy compression can do, regarding quality,but as long the format can`t provide wildly covered portable support, peoplewill still use mp3.Regarding mp4, it would have been interesting to see a test report on high bitrates.ATM. mp4 (especially nero) audio seems to have a brighter future as hardware suport, i know nothing about what goes on in the mpc camp. but i pray to godthat this format doesn`t "die".
