Does anyone use mog? - Page 3

post #31 of 200

is anyone using MOG on Linux? I tried it with the latest and greatest versions of  Firefox and Chrome on Ubuntu 12.04. and neither of them works: FF won't even let me log in using my facebook account, and on Chrome the playback is so distorted that it is hard to recognize what music is being played...

Spotify linux app is a buggy beta but at least once you manage to get it started it runs!

Works great in Windows wink.gif. Sorry, couldn't resist...

I tried the service out today and loved the quality of the streaming. Although, I was having issues with the player stopping midway through songs wasting my trial away. :(

I would subscribe for the $5 option at the drop of a hat, but since the place I work at blocks things like this, I wouldn't be using it often. This would be so great to have at work. Subscribing wouldn't stop me from buying CDs though, I would use it to discover new music for the most part.

I was trying it out today on Ubuntu 10.04 on my netbook, on campus. The music wasn't distorted for me, but playback would stop in the middle or near the end of a song. That was the only problem I was having. I tried both FF and Chrome, they aren't up to date either. :P

 

Btw, I have no trouble using Spotify on Ubuntu as long as I delete the ~/.cache/Spotify folder before launching it.

I have subscribed to MOG recently. Even though I like the format and the SQ but nearly every song I have listened to, the music has dropped out in a very short moment and then played back again.

 

It's on my last nerve as when I listen to an old record player that skips a groove in every LP. The short

"cut in and out" of the sound exists in all of my devices, be it a laptop, desktop or the tablet. I have to cancel my subscription and keep my Spotify and Pandora premium.

After seeing this thread, I am trying out the free trial of MOG, but I have not subscribed. I would have to say the jury is still out. I'm a Spotify subscriber and I've been very happy with Spotify. I've been trying listening to some of the same tracks on Spotify and MOG. I'm using a FiiO E17 DAC/amp through USB on my Windows notebook. So far, I've been unable to hear any difference on most tracks. I don't know how to determine what quality individual tracks are streaming in on Spotify. I understand that some are apparently less than 320, but so far, I really haven't been able to tell any difference in SQ. Perhaps the tracks I've compared happen to be streaming at 320 on Spotify as well, so that's why I can't hear a difference.

 

I'm still trying MOG to see if I like the features, navigation, available tracks, etc. I have noticed that sometimes songs on MOG are slow to start and then drop out during playback. I have a fast Internet connection, so that shouldn't be the issue. So far, the reliability of playback on Spotify is better than MOG.

 

As I said, I'm quite happy with Spotify, but I'm just trying MOG based on some of the posts in this thread to make sure I'm not missing anything. I don't use either service with my phone, so I'm only interested in playback on my Windows PC. I will have to keep testing and perhaps I will subscribe to MOG for awhile just to continue my testing. At this point, however, I'm not finding MOG to be any kind of a "home run" over Spotify.

I could have read the 3 pages to be sure this isn't a already asked question. But it's late my eyes hurt. So with that said, of all the competitors is there a difference

in the audio quality? 

post #38 of 200

For me this streaming thing, or online Mp3's are important. I've been traveling for years, and I love music (obviously) and I just have no place for CD's at this time. Anyways, I have been a MOG subscriber for about 3 mos, (Spotify for about 3 Mos, premium on and off) And Rhapsody for countless years.

 

  I have been having problems with MOG cutting out recently as others have also. Funny Spotify was doing that (very slightly) for me, and thats why i chose MOG. I have a fast internet also, but these cuts are just bothersome... To this date I find Rhapsody, to be about the best in consistency and quality.... MOG does seem to have a great potential, with selection and quality streams, waiting for MOG gapless

post #39 of 200

That pretty much answers my question. I will wait a few years? haha until these services offer up something better sounding.

post #40 of 200

MOG sucks unless you are used to listen to LPs that skips a groove or two in every song. SQ is good which I really have any complaint.

 

There is no thing pissed me off than listening to a nice  album and the audio drops in and out in every tracks. After I cancelled my subscription, I am so happy to loose $9.00 something but I do not have to put up with these cut in and out audio crap from MOG. My paid subscription is good 'till Jun 15th but I'd rather not to use it.

 

Spotify is way to go, period.

Actually I never had that dropping out of playback problem that everyone is having during my >2 months use. Only time I ever spotted lag is when I'm downloading a bunch of things but that's like 18 different downloads/uploads. Even then it's still only like 3 seconds of wait when I choose a song at the beginning.

All in all I'm happy with the quality of mog and I'm very glad I found it!

I listen to MOG for hours daily and have never experienced this drop out problem. Are you guys sure its not a wireless modem issue?

Nah not using wireless.

Interesting to see these dropout problems.  I've had MOG for a year or so now and I listen for hours a day at work (and fairly often at home).  I've only experienced that once or twice that I can remember.  Did you submit an issue for it to their support?  They're generally fairly quick at responding.

Yeah mine has been near perfect now. Maybe my internet was the culprit
