Thanks Alex, please follow his link, there is another torrent for the Flac files, just given by Alex Solan one post before, so please follow this better one, and convert it to mp3 yourself after that if you really need it for your personal use !!!

Thanks a lot,

Your point being?

There are a lot of old torrents here still running. the fact that theire old is no excuse for spreading inferior versions of shows.

...that's a bit harsh isn't it? I mean the guy is sharing something with you all for fucks
sake. Be a little more curtious when pointing out there's a better version to be had.

Yes, we're glad that a Queenzoner happily shares this, no problem with that. I just wanted to precise that it was a mp3 version, and someone said a Flac version was shared elsewhere !

So sorry if you found myself a little aggressive or something, I didn't feel that way, just wanted to inform people !

Anyway, it should be a sort of rule (said or unsaid) that the mp3 version of a gig could not be shared if the Flac version exists and is shared at the same time. Some are also thinking that the mp3 versions could not be shared, only the Flac ones, and I can understand that way of thinking, but it seems that it can't be made here on queenzone... But this was already said somewhere on Queenzone recently...

so, sorry if being offensive, but happy that people are informed that the Flac version is still there !

Regards,

Olivier,
France.

Well, I finally decided to bring my own vegetables to the flac/mp3 soup that's been boiling here.

I'm not quite sure if it's my own stupidity or the powerlessness of my computer, but I can't really play flac files without an occasional memory break (even though I have 2 gigabytes of RAM, and the processor is not too bad either), much less convert the flac files to mp3/wav if I really wanted to. The results are more horrible than a thoroughly scratched vinyl that can't go 5 seconds without getting stuck. Also, flacs aren't very friendly with non-computer-type audio playing devices. While the quality is rather important in filesharing, I have to admit that I'd rather have mp3's because of their usability.

In all fairness, the wav files aren't THAT much larger to seed, and they're at least as good as the flac files. If someone wants to share or to have mp3's, then by all means share them, if they're reasonably good (at least 192kbps/44kHz, maybe variable).

Usually in this type of errors the problems is between the monitor and the chair.

Wow, what software are you using to play flac files?

Also, flacs aren't very friendly with non-computer-type audio playing devices.

Yes, that's unfortunatelly still true, but there are more and more hardware players with flac support.

While the quality is rather important in filesharing, I have to admit that I'd rather have mp3's because of their usability.

Sure, why not ? Is there a problem to create the mp3s yourself ?

In all fairness, the wav files aren't THAT much larger to seed, and they're at least as good as the flac files.

Unless a stupid error occurs in the encoding phase, the audio information in the wav files is exactly the same as the audio on the flac files.

If someone wants to share or to have mp3's, then by all means share them, if they're reasonably good (at least 192kbps/44kHz, maybe variable).

Actually 192kbps is pretty bad, at least for my ears. I encode all mp3s for my mp3 player at 256kbps

damn... I didn't want to start the mp3/Flac war again... sorry guys !
Such a shame your computer doesn't want to play Flac files, my computer is some years old now, and eveything goes fine. Well, if I was in your case I think I would share/download/upload the Flac files, in order not to share something with minor quality if you can keep somewhere on discs or hard drive the lossless ones. I would then convert myself the Flac to mp3 if my computer was not able to read the Flac files correctly !
But maybe the problem comes from your music player, just check if it has been updated and re-install the plugin for Flac, maybe ....

Hope your problems will be sorted soon, very sad to know a queenzoner can't benefit from quality.

Olivier,

Well, no harm done. This'll go on probably as long as any type of digital, non-physical media finally conquers the good old CD's and whatnot.

What comes of the encoding quality of mp3's, I can agree that 192 isn't that good - I do hear the packaging artifacts most of the time the encoding produces, but it depends very much on the original recording, how bad the mp3 will be. But I can tolerate 192 most of the time, because whenever I listen to mp3's, I'm not usually in an environment where it makes much difference. 256 is alright, almost near perfect, sort of, but there's still a possibility that you'll hear some bad encoding in some songs, if you concentrate enough. Also, depends on the equipment you're listening the music on.

I can't really remember which programs I've tried in the converting progress, but they (all of them, I think I've tried 3 or 4 different ones) failed miserably in producing anything listenable. To play flac files, I've tried some standalone flac player, which I found uselessly memory-hungry. Can't remember the name. I've also tried WinAmp with flac plugin. Only one word could describe my experience: "argh."

Quoting "Sure, why not ? Is there a problem to create the mp3s yourself ?" , you must've missed something I said earlier in my message. Creating mp3s from flac files, for me, has so far been unsuccessful, and I have no idea why.

Oh well. If flacs were more user-friendly, I'd be happy to support using them. For now though, I can't agree with some of your's opinion in going flac-only, if it's possible. But then, I prefer vinyls to CD's anyway...

A man after my own heart. You're right - CDs are actually pretty poor quality (compared to what's possible in the digital domain) and lots of folks complain about them sounding grainy and harsh (which they do).

Forgive me if I'm patronising you here, but I think you're getting kinda hung up with the technology side of things - a FLAC file is just a data-compressed WAV file (i.e. it's magically (!) squashed into a smaller space in order to get down your 'phone line quicker, for you to then decompress it). And even though some players do it, I'd suggest that trying to play a FLAC file is asking for trouble: what most people do is decompress it back to wav then just burn it as normal. Hope that helps, and long live vinyl!

The owner of this site clearly allows mp3 sharing, yet the flac'ers act like they own Queenzone.

I never had problems playing FLAC files on my PC using Winamp. I first used the plugin suplied with FLAC frontend, but now I simpy use the native plugin that comes with Winamp in the latest version. As for burning, Nero is capable of burning directly from FLAC once you install the apropriate plugin.
If you want to decode the files to WAV I suggest using FLAC Frontend or Trader's Little Helper, both free.

My PC is an based on an Athlon XP 2400 processor currently with 256 Mb memory, so you shouldn't have any problems watsoever.

That is not the point.

The point is he probably downloaded the FLAC files from here, and we don't know what he did with them afterwards.These MP3 could come directly from the FLAC files or they could be a re-encode from a previouly burned CD sourced from MP3.

Now people who download this will probably burn audio CD's and delete the source files (Not all people, but some will do this), and if they want to share this in the future they will again re-encode the CD's to MP3, further and further worserning the recording.

Yes, Richard alows MP3 sharing, but he also requests that all shares come with apropriate information, namely: Date, Venue, City, Lineage (if possible) or source of the recording, and file format.

How many people actualy label their shared files like this?

How often do we get posts with nothing more than a torrent file or a few share links and an ambiguous title?

It is not just about FLAC being better than MP3 it's about providing the most complete information about what is being shared.

I definitely agree that you want to see a proper announce, so that you know if you want to download what somebody offers to share, or not. :)

Now...

I do not want to get involved in any ”FLAC vs mp3” fight. I will admit that I was a bit surprised when I arrived here. I did not expect to find a serious fan site allowing sharing of mp3s, but I definitely think that the site owner has every right to decide what s/he wants to allow at a board. Peace!

So, instead of “whining” I would like to make a positive suggestion. This is based on the fact that the problem with mp3 sharing is not the files themselves. Indeed, I convert a lot of my FLAC files to mp3 for personal use, taking the music with me as I travel. They definitely have their good uses!

The problem is that a lot of music lovers are not tech minded, so they do not know why it is not a good idea to do any further conversions of mp3 files. Therefore, shared mp3 files may cause decreased quality further down the line. "We" can't stop people from sharing mp3s. "We" can't tell people what to do with their files (and it is their files once they have downloaded them, even in FLAC format.) But I think that information needs to be spread to as many music lovers as possible. If everybody knew and respected two basic facts, mp3 sharing would not be a problem.

1) It is not a good idea to convert mp3 to FLAC. If you convert mp3s to FLAC, the audio is not changed at all. All that really happens is that the files go bigger. You could say that if you create FLAC files from mp3, you are really creating over-sized mp3 files. I know some people do this out of kindness – they think that people asking for FLAC files just happen to prefer that format. The “mpFLACs” usually do not happen because evil people want to force you to spend more bandwidth and storage space than necessary. However, the fact is that it is still a bad thing to do.

2) If you convert mp3 files (or “FLAC” files made from mp3) to mp3 or any other lossy format again, some more information is lost. You may or may not hear the decrease in sound quality but believe me, it is there. Lossy formats like mp3 both compress the audio (which FLAC does, too) and delete some of the audio (which FLAC does not), and this happens every time you convert a file to a lossy format.

So, the problem is really not the mp3 files as such. The bad thing is using mp3 files for further conversions. This is why I would like to suggest that mp3 uploaders take care to inform people that it is not a good idea to change the files in any way. Ironically, you would have to add a line similar to that of many FLAC uploaders, only this time it would say:

“Do not in any way alter these mp3 files. Any conversion will either decrease quality or make the files unnecessarily big. You can NOT increase the quality by converting to FLAC or other lossless formats. Any additional conversion to mp3 (even if it is to a higher bitrate) will in fact decrease the quality. If you burn these files to CD, the quality will be decreased if you rip that CD to mp3. So, simply do not change these files.”

Or something like that…

***************

As for the problems with playing FLAC and with converting to mp3… there really shouldn’t be any problem these days. Winamp has had FLAC support out of the box for a couple of versions now. You don’t have to think about it, it simply plays FLAC. And, FLAC decoding really is not that resource-demanding. I suspect your problem lies elsewhere. One reason might be if you downloaded a Winamp version that already supported FLAC, but added the old FLAC plugin all the same. That could well cause a conflict as Winamp would get “confused” about which decoder to use: the plugin or the one already built in. The solution would be to uninstall Winamp (and the plugin, of course), then install the latest version.

(Tech comment: the decoder decompresses FLAC to WAV (or to the PCM stream embedded in WAV) in rea

hemm... Just one question, s Windows Media Player a good thing for extracting Wav files from a disc in your opinion ? Or is this software creating spaces or clicks between tracks or something like that ? I was wondering if it was a good way.
oh, and Windows Media Player can read Flac files too, with the appropriate plug-in !! For those who are used to this software or lazy to search for another one !


thanks a lot,
