Just joined and love this place. The 64k ogg stream works fine for me using foobar 0.9.1 If I really was going to whine about the sound, I'd have gone and bought the albums and ripped in FLAC. Ogg at 64kbps sounds pretty darn good considering how small the filesize is. ^^


I didn't mean to whine, 64kbit OGG is far better than all those 128kbit mp3-streams out there, and this station is free, plays my kinda music, and without commercials.
I'm just saying, that I would happily pay for a 128kbit OGG/AAC+ stream

I've been thinking about that lately. It's a possibility.

Sounds great Smile
Maybe a vote to see how many people are willing to pay x$/month for a 128kbit stream ?

I worked on it ealier this month but SAM had some difficulties handling an additional encoder. I have some other higher priorities to work on first but I plan to revisit it again later this year.

I'm very glad to hear that the idea hasn't been droped, but offcourse understand that it's far from a top-priority Smile

Imo 128k aac plus would be overkill unless more channels are used...

Well I have never heard 128k aac+, but 64k is definitively not enough, as there is very hearable loss ...

I would pay for 128kb AAC/MP3... I have a Mac and have been having trouble finding a player that will handle Ogg.

I'm not a Mac user, but OGG is an open standard. I'd be shocked if there isn't an OGG capable player available. It may be a plugin for something else you've heard of.

What about iTunes? Surely it can play OGG files (although streaming OGG might be different somehow...)

What about this?

or you could just get a real computer Wink

cal is the ogg expert - he'd probably know if anyone does.

Anything new on the subject ?

I would still be willing to pay something extra, on top of the VIP I'm already paying for Smile

We have 128k Ogg running already.

VLC Media Player is for Linux, Mac, Windows and plays Ogg & aacPlus. It is awesome and open source just like Vorbis.

128k aacPlus, probably not going to happen.

There are still some bugs with the MP3 library which causes our CPU usage to increase too much. I am working with the developers with this still. We may upgrade the server to quad-core soon in order to handle it.

Ahh, I hadn't noticed the Ogg one, but now there is both aac+ and ogg, time to test both again to find out what I prefer at 128 Smile

This truely is a great place
