Would a wiki be useful?

Post by sbooth » Thu May 22, 2008 4:21 am

I've noticed that many questions come up again and again.

Would having a wiki available be useful for this?

Yes. I was thinking the same thing after the last "Where's Apple Lossless?" query. But maybe some thorough stickies might suffice?

How to find the most commonly used formats?
Here's Max's way to do LAME.
So what you think you really want is EAC. :?
Where you can put your ideas for improvements.

Yes, plenty of possible entries.

Why do I hear white noise?
Can I get track information if my CD is not in the database?

Those come up. Also more general matters, like "What is VBR?" possibly. If you click "MP4 Audio" and then select AAC, you see a box "use VBR". I think that's come up in one form or another a few times.

This is great. Speaking personally I'd definitely contribute text/screenshots to this, and I'm sure the same is true of others.

I couldn't answer for the quality of anything I'd write. :D But that wouldn't seem to matter, so long as I'd tried to be accurate, since these are living documents and should just grow and get better over time.
