Sorry to have to ask this, but I searched and found nothing. I just finished converting a shitload of wma files (rips)to mp3 to share, and I noticed how much bigger the files are (a little more than 2x as big). Is it cool to share files as wma or ogg, or should they be mp3. It's just that I can share and use twice as many files that way.
Someone said mp3's are better quality, but it depends on the conversion - also, if the mp3's are simply converted from wma, they CAN"T be better quality - you'd do better to dl and convert yourself.
If someone who REALLY knows about this stuff could inform me or point me in the right direction that would be great. I know lots about sample rate, bit resolution, dynamic range etc., but not much about the guidelines for sharing files.
