How /g/ store video and music? Do you even do it?
Don't know what codecs/format use to do it.
FLAC for audio, that's obvious, but what about movies?
Is 720p in matroska enough? For me it's right - small size up to 5GB, good video quality with nice bitrate and often it contains DTS audio.
>implingy I can hear the difference between DTS and 192kbps mp3
What about you?
192kbit/s mp3 probably isn't surround when it comes to movies, while DTS probably is.
I download 1080p encodes done by good groups from private trackers. Usually at least 10GB per movie, more often than not 15GB per.
FLAC music from what.cd obviously.
>hardware decoding support
h.265 can theoretically offer 50% better quality/filesize ratio but it's not anywhere near that yet and you have to do everything in software
I'm going against the grain here,
Audio: 320 CBR or V0 VBR mp3
I've tried FLAC, but that bit of increase in sound quality wasn't enough to justify the bigger file size.
Movies/TV series: usually 720p (preferred file size about 4-6 GB) and for the ones I really like I go for 1080p (10-12 GB)
