Avatar 11/29/17 6:13pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I turned on the little sound wave visualizer thingies in Winamp for perhaps the first time ever in one of my shows, this time. Otherwise it was hopeless to figure out which one was which after a while. Usually I have great spacial memory on my screen filled with players, but these are all totally abstract.

  11/29/17 6:17pm Bliss:

how many k is the top "Pop up"?
Avatar 11/29/17 6:19pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

It's 264k variable bitrate, which gets as high as 320k. The normal live stream is constant bitrate 128k.
Avatar 11/29/17 6:20pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Later in your future player past Stanley
  11/29/17 6:22pm Bliss:

The Pop-up at the top is higher than the 128k MP3 or the MP# 192K, or do you mean the bottom Pop up player is 264k. I thought the top pop up was the lowest quality.
Avatar 11/29/17 6:25pm coelacanth∅:

the regular fmu pop-up isn't 128, is it? it sounds pretty bad. the "128k mp3" link, even though i'm forced to use the crappy vlc player, sounds much better than the pop-up ever has.
Avatar 11/29/17 6:26pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

The links up top near "give the drummer" are both 128k. The links down lower near "listen to this show" are both VBR 264k.
Avatar 11/29/17 6:26pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Oh actually the usual pop-ups might be 64k AAC+ MP4's, which isn't nearly as bad as 64k MP3 would be.
  11/29/17 6:27pm Bliss:

Thanks everyone.

Now I'm listening to the WFMU 128k stream on iTunes, the high quality link on the popup player and the 192k m3u on VLC. I cannot sync it, though, but they're all pretty close.
