What a bunch of bullshit. mp3 is now free from licensing restrictions, if anything it is more alive.

Re: The MP3 Is Officially Considered Dead
its a shitty quality file. it actually loses sonic qualities
they condensed music back when hard drives where small and when napster was on the scene.
honestly it killed the music industry.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1542137


AAC and other compressed formats are barely any better, and are still constrained by patents, copyright, and other license restrictions. They are only marginally better. Yes, there are other formats that are completely lossless, but they are relatively HUGE and the vast majority of streamed and broadcast audio that everybody listens too is compressed with lossy codec like mp3 or AAC

mp3 is not dead at all

I use free software Audacity to take WAVs or MP3s and increase their bass or treble, make the sound stronger, and then save as a 128 MP3. It is free of charge, very rich in sound; and definitely no need for a AAC, which isn't even compatible in many playing devices.

Re: The MP3 Is Officially Considered Dead
The last version of LAME v3.99.5 was finally dialed in to use the available bitrate in V0. It will use high bitrate when needed.

I used to use 320k but with 3.99.5 I'm finally happy with the V0 performance.

MP3 is not dead, and will not die. There are so many devices out there that use it.

At higher bitrates AAC and Ogg aren't any better than MP3. It's only at low bitrates 128k and lower that they have any advantage.

128k sucks btw

Never knew the mp3 was becoming obsolete.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74845446


AAC = Apples proprietary format.
Therefore this entire article is Pro- Apple PROPAGANDA to confuse you.

MP3 will still be used extensively.

Re: The MP3 Is Officially Considered Dead
The new age computers and data will be light based.

Even the processing unit will only be reflective tunnels that direct light through processing gateways.

It will be known as speed of light processing and data units.

Micro lasers even tho we have huge ones for weapons.

The only thing used to extract data at any point will be chip mirror sensors that blast off another micro laser or places the data onto a screen.

The ram will be a reflective chamber that holds light that is loaded with all hard drive data on start up.
At any give time if data is requested a the mirror sensors will load the data into micro laser lights for processing.


Wire resistance and mass slows down computing.

Re: The MP3 Is Officially Considered Dead
I still have multiple copies of the library I made of all my cd's from the 90s. Used to belong to BMG and Columbia house too. Started my alternative collection with Pearl Jam, Nirvana etc. At some point I ripped every CD I owned. Now I have em uploaded to Apple. Haven't paid the sub this year though for itunes match. I also still have em as MP3s on multiple hard drives just in case.

These days though you can just youtube any song you want to hear or use a streaming service.

Re: The MP3 Is Officially Considered Dead
As a codec MP3 has been technologically dead for ages. There have been many codecs with better performance and compression but nobody uses them - why?

For the same reason that people still put up with the hassle of wondoze and f'n even FLASH(!?!?) - EVERYBODY uses it out of habit and tradition because everybody else does too.

Always trying to figure out ways to get us to re-buy our entire music collection. Maybe we should have stuck with vinyl.
 Quoting: Mehitable 66586603
Ultimately, the industry does not want you owning the physical media, digital or otherwise. They now prefer it to be digital so that they can control and strip the individuals ability to do with it as they please. I will always store it myself whether it be a vinyl album on my shelf, reel to reel tape, or the digital copy stored on my media server. I am not a fan of streaming, I want absolute control.

Yeah....AAC is proprietary (ITUNES, etc) - which makes it completely undesirable.

Stick with MP3 - it's good enough.

I scored so much vinyl from my dad when they moved to warmer climate and sold the childhood home. Over 300 vinyls from 60's, 70's, and some early 80's.
