OGG Vorbis vs. MP3 LAME - Page 2

post #16 of 17

ogg is pretty close to AAC. I think it's MP4, right? Generally, I find that AAC is the same as MP3 LAME one notch up, and two notches on Frauenhofer. So Frauenhofer MP3 320 is the same as LAME 256 or AAC/Ogg 192. All of those are transparent in 99.9% of music. In my library, I've gone one notch into overkill... AAC 256. I added VBR so the file would be distributed intelligently.

Vorbis and AAC are the codecs / formats that contain the audio, Ogg and mp4 the containers (for example for tags).

 

Vorbis VBR@200 should be a bit better than MP3 V0, so transparent in virtually every case.
