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 reported mp3 at V2 and no use of other codecs/bitrates in rest of the survey. But there was no way to indicate that I'm only using mp3 V2 for portable devices and where for home use I use FLAC format. Just noting that the meaning of "what bitrate used" could be quite different if asking for use in portables or automobile vs use in general.

Most of us have a lossless storage home with today HDD capacities. See 2013 codec poll
I think there is no need to figure out that.


Quite surprised that, yet, 32 kbps audio is on demand. People wouldn't mind about a decent video+audio streaming on a mobile devices. As for me, youtube videos (low quality) aren't playable on mobile bandwidth here.

Aren't playable because of not enough bandwidth or high traffic billing?
Here for example, in good field conditions, I have enough bandwidth to play even 320kbps streams on my mobile with no problems at all (or YouTube videos FWIW), but I have a plan with only 1Gb/month of data included, so high bitrates are still not an option for me, not on long terms at least.

And speaking about "fidelity", there is a local radio station that streams the matches of my town's football club on 32 Kbps WMA... wink.gif

Here local carrier have opted for unlimited mobile internet at cost of speed. The speed is 256 kbps during first 10 MB per day and then 64 kbps. The good thing it's very cheap and have a massive character. 1 AR$/day. (0.2u$). Everybody's messaging, whatsuping, sharing a fotos and so on. Good stuff. smile.gif

I'd go for that over the typical $40US/month for 2 GB we get around here. As it is I opted for a tab with no mobile plan. I may go for a mobile hotspot if I can find a good plan that just charges for days used.

By the by, just heard on the news of a president Obama's plan to cover all of US territory with free wi-fi, as a measure to speed up economic growth... unsure.gif

My settings haven't changed in years and likely won't.

Still use these all via Speeks frontends (you all still remember those don't you):
* FLAC
* LAME: ~ 200 kbps (V2)
* Vorbis: ~ 192 kbps

Would be nice but the U.S. was promised dirt cheap broadband a long time ago back with President Bush junior was in office. It's surprising how many people still don't have an Internet connection let alone a computer.
