Why isn't wavpack more popular? 2005-01-23 21:43:52 Hey,While researching which lossless format to use, I came across this old thread titled "why isn't wavpack more popular?". After looking into a lot of lossless codecs, I found myself asking the same question.I read through the thread and saw some of the concerns with the format, but the last message is almost a year old now and dates back prior to any official v4.x releases (that I'm aware of anyway...I'm obviously new to WavPack so don't know the history well). So I'm just wondering if all the problems were taken care of in v4.x, or are there still reasons why WavPack isn't more popular than it currently is? Is it just a chicken/egg scenario (not popular so nobody wants to add hardware support, no hardware support so people go with FLAC instead)? With fast encode/decode times, great compression, hybrid mode, and OSI approved license (for those who care), I don't see what other reason there could be for not using WavPack.Anyway, I'm already sold on the format...hybrid encoding made it so much easier to have lossless quality at home and exceptional lossy at work, so thank you for an amazing product bryant!
