actually... those are really old purely analog formats  Tongue


35mm actually was the film the camera recorded, that's the film type you had to splice together to make edits!

and laserdisc was from 1978 to 2001 you still had the conversion process but it's probably the closest you'll get to a "lossless" video type

hey here's another thought, what about LCD's vs LED's for screens?

like which one looks better in your opinion... since holograms aren't really a thing yet for 3D video stuffs.

Sometimes, LCDs look so real they look fake.

Does that make sense?

in a way they were superior to our LCD's however the technology of the time couldn't really take advantage of their theoretical frame rate limits, once again analog > digital in this case.

Going to dig this one up.

MP3's are the standard, but inferior to OGG and FLAC.

in our post modern era, I want to play music in RAW format recorded to storage crystals or MDiscs which have shelf lives in the thousands of years.

something I can slot in and have it be read by a laser.

something like this.

Tongue MP3's may be the standard but just wait until a better format comes along... I hear AAC, FLAC, and OGG are equally popular Tongue I'm a vorbis guy myself.

OGG is just a container for codecs like Vorbis. Vorbis can be encoded in .ogg files.

@ Brian: MP3 is fine for most things, FLAC and OGG/Vorbis are higher quality but less used formats and ideal for like recordings or getting crystal clear audio.
but the difference is so small most people wouldn't notice lol.

OGG/Vorbis realistically isn't used for getting crystal clear audio. Vorbis is lossy like MP3s. FLAC is lossless and is the best encoding solution when space isn't a concern.

the future in reality is raw bits without needing a codec lol.

crystal discs with bits suspended in 3D tracks
