Why is FLAC supposedly so bad?

Please give a real answer. If you don't know, don't post, unless you're hijacking the thread with something funny, or you want to argue. That would be funny, but, seriously, don't lie if you don't know. I seek an honest truth.

Re: Why is FLAC supposedly so bad?

I don't know who told you that, but they are full of shit. It has replaced shn (shorten) as the standard. SHN's are archaic. And it is quicker and more stable than that monkey ape shit.

Just my opinon, but not sure who thinks they are bad. Most bands who offer live shows on their sites offer in flac form.

Re: Why is FLAC supposedly so bad?

Yeah, FLAC support these days is much better than that for Shorten. For instance, there are FLAC plugins for pretty much every major media player in Linux, but our only options for Shorten playback are either an XMMS plugin or command-line playback. Since I've never gotten XMMS to compile properly, I'm having to run foobar2000 under Wine to playback Shorten files. I really don't know why there isn't a gstreamer plugin for Shorten.

The only problem with FLACs is that if you use etree's md5check script and some idiot included md5s with their FLAC files, it will check both the md5s and the fingerprints, so it takes twice as long as it should to check the files. This is why you should never include md5s with FLAC files--just include a text file with the fingerprints.

Pig is teasing--don't listen to him. This kind of taunting is typical when newbies post a thread in General Discussion that really should have been posted in Technobabble.

Actually, I was taunting Wicker. He's far better game than a newbie.

Weird or wired? I say both. Then again, she lives in Nebraska so that's a certain handicap attached to that one.

Yeah, man. She's like, wired. You know, if you take two wires and plug them into a potato with a really small bulb at the other end, it will light up. And did you know that the wire was invented my ancient mesopotamians who were tired of their grass huts burning down. You see, they took their copper spears and banged out wires long enough to reach the tops which connected to a regular spear-head to make a lightning rod. Speaking of lightning, did you know that it strikes three times in a row?
