I just noticed in the polls that more people use mpc than mp3!

Bearing in mind that I know nothing about mpc, could anyone explain the benefits over mp3?

I use alt-preset extreme... does anyone recommend I upgrade to mpc?

Well, ok. Although recommended and best aren't the same.

There's helluva difference between 'I really wanna try this codec and wanna know what the good settings for this particular purpose would be' and 'What's the best codec of them all' soon falling down to 'I heard yer prefered codec is better/bigger/longer than mine, well, that's not true...', the latter is like invitation to the bashing/flamewars/fanboyism/hurt feelings/namescalling and what not.

So if you're into streaming over ISDN or encoding audio for DVD backup, you probably exclude certain codecs from the consideration, and vice versa.

In another words I can't quite remember something starting like this and leading to something constructive. unsure.gif
