Hi, Everybody,

This poll (as some other) is created to collect some data of general tendency in use of audio codecs for a different purposes and contents.


Basicly it contains 3 following questions:

1 - What bitrate do You encode a music to MP3 at?
2 - What bitrate do You encode a music to post-MP3 codecs ([HE-]AAC, Vorbis, Opus and other) at?
3 - What bitrate do You use for a such purposes like encoding a speech, streaming (radio,podcasting) with a post-MP3 codecs like (HE-)AAC, Vorbis, Opus and other.


Feel free to comment your particular preferences.

Thank You.

I preface this by noting that at home on the LAN everything is stored in and played as FLAC.


When I'm forced to use mp3 for music I usually encode at V2, maybe V3 or V4 if space is tight.. I voted for V2.

My lossy preference for music is generally Vorbis at -q2 (~96kbps) or q3 if space is plentiful. I never encode music in vorbis higher than q3 for personal or family use. I distribute some of my old band's music at higher quality levels just to reduce the whining from people who don't know any better. I voted for ~100 kbps or less. Once Opus support starts appearing as supported on the devices I use I'll likely convert to Opus at the ~96kps level to attain the same file size and just ever so slightly improve quality even though Vorbis already satisfies me in this space. Can't complain about a little more quality margin for free.

For speech (for me, not a ton of use for this yet) I aim to use Opus at ~32kbps.
