Default Ogg

I've just started ripping my current cd's into ogg format, is there anyone else that uses this great format?

Yeah, but quality 8 Oggs take up less space and sound WAY better than 320kbps MP3s.

Anyone tried converting Ogg to WAV to burn to Audio CD? I did a while back and notice some distortion (kind of reverb like) in the recording. Actually didn't notice it until I got some better speakers. The Oggs in question came from a game, so I can't compare with original CD audio. Note that I don't believe their is any problem with Ogg, perhaps with using compressed formats in general, or the converter program I used (I forget the name atm as I am not at home).

i think that's a general compression problem.

but what quality were the oggs encoded in? that could factor in too.

Somewhat on the topic of OGG, does anyone know if there are any groovy portable OGG players/jukeboxes (like the iPod or Nomad Jukebox series)? My MP3/CD player has gone the way of all flesh, so it's time for a replacement. I'd like something that can handle OGG files, though. I've been quite pleased with them for general listening pleasure.

And I've had the distortion problem going from low-bitrate MP3s to WAV files on CD as well. The joys of lossy compression!

Cheers,
JND

I was gonna use ogg, but then wmp9 came out in beta.

So I don't. wma9 is easier.

Wait... wait....

Oh yeah, this is the point where I kick you square in the nuts.

Seriously though, I'd be really surprised if wmp9 actually sounded better than ogg.

I didn't say it sounded better...

I never even got to the point where I was using ogg. (As I said I wanted to though.)

It's just easier to use.

By the way, it sounds awesome. I can't say better or worse, but it is either regular or VBR, and with XP (I dunno on 2000 with the final release) it has lossless too.

Oh, and ow.
