My music collection is currently encoded in FLAC format and was ripped using cdparanoia. I want to convert some of my FLAC files to a lossy format for listening on my Android phone at work (Nexus 4 for reference) but am unsure which codec to use. I think the choice is really between AAC and Ogg Vorbis but I'm not really sure. I'm basically looking for the best sound quality with the smallest file size.

Can anyone offer some advice for a newbie in this field (prior to this I've only ever really used lossless formats such as ALAC or FLAC).? Thanks.

Don't know if I've said this before but thanks for your work on that script..

I haven't used it yet as I haven't had need to batch convert anything in awhile, but I tend to live on the command line and appreciate a good bash script.. I'll grab it soon and test it out since my wife found a ton of her old CD's which I just ripped to FLAC and she'll want em on her phone soon.
