What lossy codecs does /g/ use for carrying their music around on mobile devices? I use 80k Opus (VBR) and it sounds damn near perfect on my HD600s. My library goes from 160GB in FLAC to 13GB.

96 vbr Opus on my phone and 512 vbr Opus on my laptop. I actually got rid of all my flac rips completely, they're just bloat desu. If I ever need to re-encode music to another format for whatever reason I'll just transcode from my 512 vbr Opus files.

Lossy transcodes aren't always bad though. Hell they're downright unavoidable sometimes.

Producing a 96 vbr Opus/[successor to Opus here] file will literally have the same quality whether ripped from a FLAC or 512 vbr Opus file. Of course i'd only do this once to prevent generational loss.

>> No.54883759

>>54883733
lossy transcodes are still bad, though, even if it sounds identical to flac.
you should keep a flac copy of the song for archival purposes in case you want to transcode to another format.

Where does /g/ get their FLAC music in the first place?

Then why don't movie studios release 1080p movies over multiple blu-ray discs to store the raw 2 hours of 1080p video (100GB+). Why do they punish use with "inferior" ~20GB video encoded in a single blu-ray disc?

No? I buy CDs and rip FLAC. I suggest you stop being a poorfag.

>> No.54883865

>>54883833
From CDs. FLACS online can be ripped from 320k MP3s. It's very hard to tell what a "real" FLAC is because MP3s can have the 20KHz cut-off frequency filter disabled and the .cue files doctored.

because BD discs can only hold so much, anon
besides, this is about music, not movies.

I use whatever format my music was available in - storage is never a problem, phones play damn near everything and transcoding is just a huge waste of time and further reduction of quality. It's ridiculous when you think about it - you're wasting YOUR time making YOUR music OBJECTIVELY worse. Like, what the fuck man.

I keep all my lossless collection on a chinese botnet server and occasionally download it all and convert it to the newest meme format /g/ tells me to.

I'm in the middle of converting it all to 48 kbps opus because it sounds transparent to me on my shitty headphones.

>> No.54885741

>>54883574
But PNG is a lossless codec. All you've done is reduce the compression on the original image without improving the quality whatsoever. What was the point of that again?

>> No.54885762

Is there any headroom left for lossless audio codecs or is the current level-8 FLAC encoded with the cuetools encoder the best compression we can ever hope to achieve without dipping into lossy territory?

>> No.54885912

FLAC transcoded to Opus 128kbps and streamed from my server to my phone.

>> No.54886239

If I use Subsonic, which I tend to, my FLACs get transcoded to 192k MP3 and my MP3s just get transferred.
If I copy it over, I don't worry about it much at all.

However, assuming my phone supports Opus in all its glory it might be time to switch for that delicious space and bandwidth saving. (I would use Vorbis but not lossy to lossy without getting the bitrate low enough and keeping the quality.)
