Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Sorry to correct you but 128 kbps is NOT CD quality. lol To understand how mp3's work during encoding, they limit frequency range to below 15 KHz, & often above the lowest frequencies. They reduce size from originals in a number of ways, most of which include throwing away audio information. They attempt to encode repetitious cycles so it's not continually repeated in the encoding process. They often approximate frequencies.

An mp3 file at a lower kbps means a thinning out of the sound. If you have a "very" hi quality sound system (with appropriate hi quality speakers & appropriate settings to suit the room) & play a cd thru it & then compare it with the same songs encoded into 128 kbps, you will notice the difference. If you can't, then your hearing abilities at hearing differences in tone & subtle frequency changes are probably untrained or burnt out. lol It is more obvious with some styles of music or songs than others.

Several years ago there was a lot of propaganda about 128 kbps being CD quality because when mp3's first came out that's what their maximum ability was. Unfortunately many audio programs still set 128 kbps as the default setting for audio encoding. In those days people's internet speeds were much slower, & their HDD's were much smaller, so using smaller files to swap across the internet was much more desirable. Before mp3 was mp2. There were some somewhat misinformed/ignorant people who didn't have any audio qualifications who wrote articles saying mp3's at 128 kbps were cd quality. Some even saying they were better than cd quality. lol Unfortunately that old propaganda still affects some users nowadays. (If you have an audio editor with a frequency response graph ability, compare the original AIFF/WAV with that of the same song on an mp3 at 128 kbps & you will see where some of the losses occur & how the shape of the music has in fact changed slightly. There will be less audio information for a start, & less subtle frequency peaks & dips along it's trail. The lines will be straighter, signalling less information & approximations made ... eg: combining small frequency changes between 568 kbps, 572 kbps, 558 kbps, 564 kbps ... may all show as 570 kbps in the mp3 over that short time span which might only be 0.01 of a second. Add all those 0.01 secs up on top of each other & you have some notible changes.) mp3's are designed to focus on the mid range frequencies & show most loss at the top & bottom ends (high & low sounds.) That's because most people's ears generally focus on those ranges where voice & higher guitar sounds range in tone. mp3's at higher than 128 kbps try to give more response where the 128 kbps lacks (but still below 15 Kbps) & most likely less approximations.

mp3 is a "lossy" format, meaning it throws away audio information to help reduce file size. Re-encoding an mp3 or mp4 or ogg file to another mp3/mp4, etc. is thinning out an audio file's quality even further. Throwing out even more information. I certainly hope you are not sharing those re-encoded files on Gnutella network but only the originals you downloaded. Otherwise you are degrading the quality of files shared around the network. Would you like to listen to a song that's been re-encoded from mp3 to mp4 to mp3 to mp3 (people changing the kbps each time) ? It will sound crappy I assure you, compared to the original from the CD. (Re-encoding an mp3 from 128 kbps oto 320 kbps will not improve the sound at all! The opposite! Nor will it improve if encoding from 320 down to 128.)

Since you use iTunes, I put you up to this task. Get a cd you have Purchased (not one you have burnt from mp3's.) Convert the songs to AIFF. Then convert the songs to mp3 at 128 kbps. Then listen back to the sound difference between the AIFF files & the mp3's. Listen to the AIFF ones first & 3rd. AIFF is a non compressed audio format (does not throw away audio information.)

I should also point out that there are different qualities between encoders. Some are better than others. The mp3 encoding quality of one player will be different to the next. Thus, you can encode the same file from a cd to mp3 with 2 different programs & notice a small difference in sound & perhaps size also. Generally the newer the encoder the better quality. The reknown best mp3 encoder is LAME.

There is a LAME encoder you can get for iTunes.

To find your shared folder (outside of limewire)...
You will find this folder by clicking on one of your files in your LW library and clicking explore...

Then open up itunes create a new playlist and drag and drop them in...
