I'm really surprising with the ammount of votes that go to mp3. I think ogg vorbis will be far behind mp3, but with 75 votes, 49% to ogg and 43% to mp3, it's suprising.
Why you people still prefere mp3 to our free ogg vorbis codec ?


Have a nice day.

if you favor oss and prefer ogg vorbis you will get yourself a portable or data-cd player that supports ogg vorbis!
you got things mixed up i think... YOU are the custumor and you get to choose which products you buy; you should not let any company tell you which music format to use.
there are plenty of player that support ogg vorbis, and plenty more that have opnesource firmware giving you the possibility to make ogg vorbis support yourself!
so that's a lame excuse for supporting proprietry formats...

I think it is really good of you that you have enough money that you can donate to us poor students who do not have the extra cash needed to get a player that supports ogg and at the same time has the same featureset as what you would otherwise get. Yes, they are considerably more expensive, and most of us simply cannot spare that extra amount for something as trivial as that.

wait a moment. first of all i am a student too. second as i said supporting oss is not rivial to me and third NO THEY ARE NOT MORE EXPENSIVE.
compare:
ipod 20gb no photo(this is the most established, non ogg supporting, so i chose it)
100%proprietry
299$ (apple online store)

neurosaudio hd 20gb
opensource hardware
+opensource firmware
=100% oss
ogg vorbis support
more features (radio broadcasting -> hijack someones radio;) )
249$

now where is that more expansive?
i know ipod is not the cheapest to compare with, but there are many others that are even cheaper. if you want one you will find one.

Wait a minute.. You're a student? and you have a 250$ music player? Where the hell did you get that kind of cash? Usually I spend that kind of thing on heating and food.

Well, we could stop buying cdplayers that dont support ogg vorbis format; we could convert as much mp3s to oggs as possible; we could support ogg vorbis formats (and other free formats in general) in our web sites or all around the web... etc
If we do so I'm sure that cdplayer builder enterprises will notice the presence of .ogg format one day.
Moreover an mp3-cd player should cost more than an ogg-cd player because you've got to pay the license to use the mpeg algorithms decoders.

I can't believe that you don't see the major difference between popular MP3 and geeky OGG that made me vote for the 1st audio compression format! Eyh dude, MP3 is EVERYWHERE!!! In your grandmother's DVD player, in my Creative MuVo N200 Player, in some cars CD Players, etc ...

Moreover, some people don't like the standards Vorbis tags but you can use APEv2 tags :p as with .mp3 :o


(Sorry if you find mistakes, but english is not my native language).

Windows is everywhere, but it doesn't mater: I can do what I like to under both OS: Linux & Windows. Surf, Read mails, listen to music, watch movies and do instant messaging...
But I can't listen my OGGs where I want to! Get the difference?

yes you can listen to your ogg wherever you go!
get yourself a neuros player from www.neurosaudio.com ! it has opensource firmware, opensource hardware and support for ogg vorbis, as well as software for linux. its got big hardrives and has fm-broadcasting feature giving you the possibility to listen to you ogg music EVERYWHERE!
and even if you dont have one of those... i dont see where you cannot use ogg!? dont tell me you make mp3 cds to listen to on you grandmas dvd player when you visit her! and like i said if you believe in oss you will get yourself a portable that supports ogg vorbis!

This Neuros player looks nice. Is it also available in Europe? I doubt that, because of it's FM transmitter, which is at least not allowed in Germany :-(

order it from the us, you will even save a third of the price because of ?-$ exchange right now.
and i heard german law would be adapted to new european guidelines allowing short range personal fm-broadcasting in future.

This is properbly a stupid question, but here it is anyway...

Does it work with linux? In the same way as an USB-pen drive?
Can one transfere data both-ways between linux-PC?

well of course the neuros support linux! it contains a portable hard drive and if your usb is set up right it is plug'n'play. you can transfer data from and to it(although songs should be copied with the software, since the neuros builds a db).
though the neuros teams warns that you should not use it as a backup of sensible data, transferring both ways always worked for me.

mp3, because my favourite site mp3.de only serves mp3's and my car's radio is only able to read normal cd's, wav's and mp3's.

Bah. If my car radio, portable music player, CD player, DVD player, etc. sounded 5% as good as what came out of this computer, I might even care that I can't play my music everywhere.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
