    Quality will drop. Both are lossy codecs, so converting from one to the other will cause a drop in quality. To see the benifit of one over the other you have to encode from wav.

    I prefer MP3. WMA is a Microsoft format and it WILL fall under the DMCA and all that Paladium stuff that coming up on the radar.

    according to many of my thai, korean, and japanese friends; OGG is a commonly used "term" when referring to music. The OGG file rage has been coursing over there for a couple of years now. In most cases, they prefer OGG to MP3 as it does not have the "tinging" sound that comes with MP3 compression.

    *note* the tinging being the distortion sound that comes with high pitched instruments/voices, mainly being hi-hats and cymbals.

    I prefer MP3 better than WMA.
    When you have a quality with 128+ in your MP3's you have a great quality. Its also probably the most famous and popular, must be for some reason.

    OGG IMO is best, but MP3 is the most common. when i encode my songs for others, ogg would be a stupid choice since no one uses it.
