we'll be encouraging labels to upload in lossless, so eventually we might be able to re-encode into whatever we want. But now, all our music is in 128k CBR MP3, and so it will stay like that for the forseeable future.
This discussion is utterly irrelevant. All our content is currently in 128k CBR MP3, so even if we did convert to ogg (which would require immense amounts of processing power and several weeks of downtime), the quality would be LESS than the original.Ogg信者の私としては残念なコメントです。Last.FMって時々途切れるしなぁ。せっかくプレイヤーがOSSなのにMP3だとLinuxじゃ公式には対応しづらいですしね。ただこうも言っているので、長期的には希望が持てるかも。Last.FMのスタッフはFOSS,OSSに理解がある人達だし。
Once we start archiving all our content in FLAC (which we will do shortly), we'll have the option to eventually change to a different streaming format, and obviously royalty-free is good. But that's an ultra-long-term goal.何かリップサービスみたいな気もしますが（苦笑）。信じて待ちましょう。
