Safe And Legal Music Files
I remember the trouble Napster got into and the other folks who got nailed sharing copyrighted mp3's so I only share soundboard recordings.

These are free and legal files available to anyone who knows where to look. I have about 1,400 files [approx 90 complete albums] that were never released, never copyrighted, etc. from ABBA to Whitesnake. Today I am only sharing Pink Floyd files [takes too dang long for all 1400 files to load so I just do a few at a time]. They are in a .flac file form 90% of the time but I convert to 320 bitrate mp3s.

Problem with some of them is the mp3 ID tags sometimes are 'track 1' 'track 2' and so on but I'm sure theres a way to browse them to see what album/artist they're from, but most do have the artist name in the tag somewhere so hopefully they do pop up on peoples searches.

Likewise, I share a lot of never released material, mostly concert & jams/rehearsal sessions, etc. Likewise PF. ;)

I'm still sharing over 100 AIFF files ... slowly working the number down converting to FLAC so it's easier for them to download at 50-65% of the size of wav/aif uncompressed file size. I probably share over 500 FLAC. Some Apple Lossless. Rest are mp3/m4a. Sometimes I give both alternatives, FLAC & mp3, depending on what the user would prefer. :)

Similar applies to videos. I have some videos never officially released. I convert to mpeg 4 H.264 (multipass), 256 AAC. I maintain the original viewing dimensions such as PAL 720 x 576.
There seems to be too many poor quality MPeg 1 & MPeg 2 videos out there, small resolution of 320x240 or such. MPeg 4 H.264 is the best out there at present, MPeg 1 is obsolete & MPeg 2 is old now & nowhere near as good as MPeg 4 H.264 which compresses better without the loss in quality.

Get Tag and Rename download page. Tag and Rename by MP3Developments, download from Media Management subcategory. Tag and Rename is a powerful, easy-to-use program for organizing and archiving your library of music files you won't regret it.

Note: remember to list source in filename e.g. (Live) or (SDB)
