   Some time ago, I mostly listened music on a PC. That is why I have compressed my collection of audio CDs to the open standard called "Ogg Vorbis".
   10 years passed, now I am living a completely new life.
   Still dealing with the consequences: my car stereo doesn’t play OGG files.

   Remember kids: open standards are not “better” just because they’re open. The whole “open/close” debate is merely a stupid propaganda that comes from people who can’t win a honest competition. In most cases, it is a good idea to completely ignore the openness, and choose on the real criteria. For personal music collection, the #1 would be “compatibility” hence MP3. For streamed music, the #1 would be “bandwidth” hence HE-AAC. OGG is only good for e.g. some game developers.

It's unfortunate that Ogg Vorbis isn't more widely supported. It is supposed to be superior to mp3. I got rid of the few Ogg Vorbis files I had a while back.

For archiving CDs, a lossless compression format like FLAC is the best bet. Then you can play the FLACs on your PC for the highest quality, and convert to mp3 (or whatever lossy format you need) for mobile devices.
