The awesomeness that is Winamp

Posted 03-17-2010 at 06:47 PM by BriGuy92
So I'm sure that many of you have heard of the media player known as Winamp. I've used it a bunch myself, but it has recently gained quite a few points on the awesome meter. See, Winamp has a built-in audio file converter. Normally, this would be nothing special. However, this converter can make HE-AAC files. HE-AAC, which stands for "High-Efficency AAC" (don't ask me what AAC stands for, I don't know.) is a format that makes super-high-quality, super-small files. I am currently in the process of converting all of my music to this format, and I am more than pleased. For example, the entire Beatles discography encoded in mp3 at 320 kbps takes up 1.14 GB of space on my hard drive. Encoded in HE-AAC at 96 kbps, it takes up 335 MB. And I cannot hear any difference in sound quality between the two versions. So basically, this format is my new best friend and should clear up the problem of my iPod running out of space.

    HE-AAC = High Efficiency Advanced Audio Coding

    I think.

    I haven't used Winamp for a long time, but I didn't really get along with it when I tried it. This fact, however, might force me to change my mind. I have so much danged Asian Rap/Rock on my external drive, it's shot 280GB of free space to 100GB of free space.
