I figured it out. I had to change my playback device setting.

i would check sample 12 right away. i suppose my cheap earphones could be the culprid also?

You should not send the results of sample 12, unless you send the results for every other sample also.
Choosing sample 12 on someone else's advice will bias your answers.

Even if you send every result, it will be somewhat biased, because you would have paid more attention to sample 12 than to the other samples, bit this problem is less important.

Well, as I said in a previous post, I didn't receive a significant amount of new results which makes me feel a bit upset. It's not your fault, don't get me wrong. smile.gif

In that case why not extending the test until you get enough results? You're not in a hurry, are you? tongue.gif

Because people really had enough time now. If they didn't test now, they won't test either.
I have to admit that the test is really hard and the actual bitrate for the encoded material is not 128 kbps, but 140 kbps. I think this makes people step back. smile.gif

Anyways, the test will end today, 23:59:59 GMT.

I seem to remember reading about the Playback Device.

Try selecting "Options" > "Settings" > "Playback" and changing the selected device in the drop down.

Nope. What I wanted to say is that no results posted after that date are going to be accepted. I will do my best to post the results on Saturday afternoon.

No problem. You've done a great job and it's a pity that so few did the test.

Still, I can't wait to see the results biggrin.gif

I was late by 2min! Wondering what is the tolerance.... I tested 6 samples (12-18). Found some diferences between the main codecs (excluding the low-anchor) in two or three samples IIRC.

The longer time to test helped a bit: I tested 2~3 samples more than I would if the test ended in 25th. But after the extending I forgot about the test, and remembered only two days ago. That is the side efect.

Anyway: thanks for this oportunity!

OK, finished school work. I now started working on the results and hope to be able to post them within the next one or two hours. Stay tuned. smile.gif

I think this thread can be closed now.

Maybe it's better to close only after the results thread is up?


(Yes, I'm getting more careful with that now smile.gif)
