Chronicle of the NonPop Revolution
Here's what we originally said back in 1995:
Why so many viewers? We want to provide the best balance of sound quality, download time and disk space. Although PCM (.wav) files provide the best results, we just can't store & serve 3-minute files that occupy 16 megs. So XingSound's MPEG-2 audio does a nice job on ordinary sound cards, and produces excellent results on DSP-equipped cards. For quick musical samples, TrueSpeech offers heavily compressed but listenable results. And finally, RealAudio handles the interview segments fairly well. Try them, and let Kalvos & Damian via Contact Form know what you think.
How times have changed! We have lots of additional players (not 'viewers' anymore...), including an mp3 player now. But we have kept all the old ones as well!
