An interesting thing I noticed was that I have an Audio Converter at home
and for laughs I tried it out (came with Media Player 7). It changes MP3
files to WMA. The interesting thing was that the same song converted to
WMA was less than 1/2 the size of the original MP3. It also SOUNDED to
be very similary if not exact (but then again I am not going to admit
my ears are any good anymore ).
Has anyone else tried this? The converter came with the “bonus” stuff you
had to download from M$.

I’ll probably be killed (-9 lol) for this, but:
There is one ONLY thing in the whole Micro$$$oft world that is completely
awesome: the .WMA format.
I’ve been working in music for quite some time and it’s so so so
because a .WMA file has the same size of a .MP3 (both at 128kbps) and it
FULL CD quality… I mean it sounds exactly as a CD. What? that an MP3
128k sounds exactly as a CD too?.. WRONG. With a medium-high (soundcard +
amplifier + loudspeakers) you can note a BIG difference.
As far as I now WMA is just a container for various format, MP3 being one of
WMA is not an audio compression format. If you hear a difference between
WMA and MP3 it’s probably because the software/option use to create the file
However, what I’m asking is this: is it planned a WMA decoder for the PH
Media Player?.. that would be EXCELLENT!
