    Sad, since Vorbis audio is so superior to MP3. It makes me sad every time I see audio encoded as MP3 instead of Vorbis. Fortunately, even the addition of the loss caused by converting lossy to lossy isn't enough loss to prevent me from many times converting the MP3s into OGGs.

      Nobody cares what stupid things you do, i would never convert mp3 to ogg as there is no logic behind it. Maybe from ogg to mp3 for simple mobile players...

            According to Google’s tests, WebP can result in around a ~39 percent reduction in file-size compared to the image formats commonly used for the web today.
