A traditional poll.
You can choose a few codecs. Like Codec A for mobile audio player and Codec B for PC or any other device.

Previous polls:

2011 ripping/encoding general poll

2009 ripping/encoding general poll

Happy New Year to All! beer.gif

Chris,

Thank You for bump. smile.gif
As for me >200 votes are enough to draw decent conclusion.
The first day there were 100 votes. It took like 3 days to arrive to 200 results. And it will take like 9 days to get 300.

Well, it seems to take longer than that... which is no wonder if one cannot see the poll on HA's home page... so I'm bumping again biggrin.gif

By the way, are we allowed to discuss trends while the poll is still running?

What I mean was:
from 1 Jan to 2 Jan ( during first 24 Hs) - there are totally 100 results
from 2 Jan to 4 Jan (3 days) - total 200 results
5-13 Jan (9 days) - total 300 results.

So now it will take one month or so to get total 400 results.

I don't think people will change their mind after reading this topic. So if You have some statistics go ahead smile.gif

I understand. So, after 301 votes, some preliminary data for a nice plot smile.gif I interpolated the 2010 data using the current 2012 numbers (piecewise cubic Hermite, in case you're interested). I'm not showing the 2012 data, only a trend. Vote, and you can see it. Only one codec gains more than 1 percent popularity: AAC. That's great in my opinion and makes me hope that, after a bit more catching up with MP3 during the next few years, AAC playback will be as widely supported as MP3 playback.

CODE
   Codec   | 2007 | 2008 | 2009 | 2010 | 2011 | Trend
--------------------------------------------------------
MPEG-1 MP3 | 54.2 | 56.2 | 59.1 | 53.4 | 46.4 | \
MPEG-4 AAC | 12.8 | 16.3 | 16.3 | 19.1 | 23.8 | /
Ogg Vorbis | 22.8 | 17.7 | 14.3 | 15.1 | 16.0 | -
Musepack   |  4.4 |  3.8 |  4.5 |  4.4 |  4.3 | -
--------------------------------------------------------
#Listeners |  920 | 1309 |  923 |    0 |  458 |

P.S.: No surprises with the lossless formats.

Chris
