How lossy is Windows Media Player wma format?


Recommended Posts

Apparently wma can be variable and there is a lossless format. It will totally depend on bitrate using the same algorithm. Check out


If you are trying to keep quality, depending on your source, try not to do conversion and use a compressed format like FLAC but is lossless.

If you want better quality but have size concerns, use higher bitrate lossy formats. Your ears and equipment quality will make you the judge of what is acceptable.
