Opus 1.2 audio codec brings better sound at low bit rates (free and open source)

จันทร์, 06/26/2017 - 23:15

Now that the patents for the popular MP3 audio codec have expired, it’s unlikely that the format is going anywhere, despite many reports that misinterpreted what the end of the format’s licensing program would mean. MP3 was the de facto standard for folks who wanted to rip music from CDs in the late 90s and […]

ศุกร์, 06/23/2017 - 23:56

When Google first launched Gmail on April 1st, 2004, many people thought it was an April Fools’ joke.
