I have a 80GB ipod and I'm wanting to play Vorbis on it.

I know rockbox isn't supporting the 80GB at the moment, but I don't know anything about ipod linux and the 80gb, I'm not even certain it supports vorbis anyway.

What do you think my options are for this? Wait for rockbox to be released on the 80gb?

Thanks,

Well rockbox for the 80gb was released today, well now I get the chance to make the jump, I'm kinda scared to.

I'm using rockbox whatever happens, just I don't know if I should use vorbis or mp3 now...
Can anyone give me a hand here?

Since you are using Rockbox, you might as well use Vorbis. If you use the mp3 format then there will be no need for you to install Rockbox.

I beg to differ, there are loads of other reasons to install rockbox... too much to list! lol
Just still worried about compatibility, battery drainage, and my libary that is in mp3!

(I love drag + "dropness")

Yeah but, in my opinion, those extra features come with a price. A 5G 60GB iPod can play audio using Rockbox for 14-15 hours instead of the 20+ hours using the iPod firmware. Drag-and-drop is nice but I would much rather get full use out of my iPod's battery. Playing formats like OGG also cause more processor power to be used so the battery time is even less. That is why I think it is better just to bite the bullet and use iTunes (or foobar2000 or any other app you want) to copy your music over. On top of that, I have many videos that Rockbox can't play but the iPod firmware can.

This is just from my scenario though.

IIRC there has been some tests re: battery usage, and ogg's supposed heavier drain is not that heavy.

Can these tests be found? I was actually under the impression that it was really heavy drain.

Okay. Found it for ya smile.gif

From this posting, I got this page.

While MP3 showed about 5% longer runtime through repeated tests, I feel this number is insignificant as the 90%-10% battery discharge numbers indicate only a 1% runtime benefit for MP3.
