mpc, rest in peace Reply #25 – 2006-08-08 20:55:24 Coincidentally I ditched MPC from my library just yesterday. I've started encoding most of my music in MPC, especially live albums (gapless playback). More than half of my music was in MPC. I finally jumped the boat and had re-ripped all my CDs to MP3 (was doing it 9 hours straight). It's completely for personal reasons. I haven't seen development progress, dependency on some players (although I use foobar2000)...and various reasons. MPC was the topic on HA a few years ago. That's what made me use it. But LAME has progressed a lot since then and the reasons I used MPC for are no longer there since LAME does it perfectly.Although I'm not frequent poster here...I do read forums daily. I would also like to see separate forums for FLAC/Wavepack, and MPC forum merged into other codecs. However, that's just what I think. I haven't read anything "exciting" on MPC in ages. Most discussions (that I noticed) are lossless related and forum should thrive in directions user wish. Times change, preferences change....forums evolve.
