default quality for ogg profile too low

Bug #82922 reported by jens_acamedia on 2007-02-02
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gnome-media (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-media

it seems to me - that quality=0.5 is far too low for the profile:
CD quality lossy.

unless im missing something the default quality should be 0.7 or at least 0.6...disk space is not that expensive...

Please be aware that the gstreomer profile setting here is a factor of 10 less than the values you would enter to oggenc (e.g. "-q 5" on oggenc is the same thing as "0.5" on the gstreamer pipeline).

Note that quality 5 (0.5 in gstreamer pipeline) is often considered the point at which vorbis becomes "transparent" to CD audio...
In same cases quality 6 is useful (0.6 in gstreamer pipeline) turns off lossy stereo coupling...

In my opinion the "0.5" is more than adequate for most people's purposes... but thats' only my opinion ;-).

ok - no point in keeping this open. probably i shouldnt have filed this.
