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'm not quite so savvy about audio as many in the forum -- I'm a digital media student -- but I thought I might as well throw in my two cents here. Polls are my favorite. rolleyes.gif

For the MP3 category, I marked 320kbps and "I don't encode music to MP3". I prefer not to encode to MP3 when I can use something else, but I will use 320 when MP3 is a must, simply because storage capacity isn't a huge concern and it is the standard used by Amazon Music and Google Play.

For other codecs, I like to use Opus unconstrained VBR encoding at around 256kbps, or in the ~260 range. I find the quality is more than enough for my needs. I do this mainly to match "The iTunes Standard ™" of 256kbps CVBR AAC audio to please others who work with my audio and feel insulted when I send them something of a lower rate (some of my professors, sadly). Personally, I begin to lose differentiation around 144kbps or so with Opus codec anyway.

In the speech and streaming section, I would use around ~64kbps VBR mono for music and around ~48kbps VBR mono for raw speech like audiobooks. I don't really have any numbers or studies to backup these rates, just that they sound decent to me and produce acceptable filesizes.
