Comment: The Holy Grail of online music sales? (Score 3, Insightful) 383

by J. Random Luser (#15388987) Attached to: Making Money Selling Music Without DRM
The ability to offer iPod-compatible tracks? Sheesh the iPod can play
MP3 (8 to 320 Kbps), MP3 VBR, AAC (8 to 320 Kbps), Protected AAC (from iTunes Music Store, M4A, M4B, M4P), Audible (formats 2, 3, and 4) and WAV. Specs
and that's the cheap Shuffle. Unprotected AAC is often described as mp4. If eMusic is the only outfit that can make a business model of this, then the others deserve to die...

My big regret is that Fraunhofer gave up the fight and MP3 became the de facto standard, rather than the technically superior MP4.

Brain off-line, please wait.

Working...
