And then send Apple an invoice for the amount of your time that they wasted.iMac 2.16 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.5.1)

Nice to get Smart Playlists sorted by bit rate functional again. Not too many discs to add again:-P
Anybody heard any differences? I think it's just something within iTunes, not the AAC-codec.G5 2.5/5/2x 250/, Mac OS X (10.4.9)
Currently Being ModeratedJan 16, 2008 11:50 AM (in response to Ken Burns Effect)I haven't listened, but I compared the waveforms of aac and mp3 files encoded with 7.5 and 7.6. The result: Both codecs haven't changed between 7.5 and 7.6.
As such, you shouldn't notice anything by listening either . This whole thing was just a matter of putting a '320' in the file-header instead of the actual bitrate.MacBook, Mac OS X (10.4.10), M-Audio FW410, iPod Classic 160 GB
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 23, 2008 6:32 PM (in response to ee)What's fixed? What are you all talking about?
Do the new versions (of iTunes and/or QuickTime) make it possible to do either of these things:
- true, unvarnished Constant Bit Rate (not ABR like we have now), or
- unconstrained VBR?iMac Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.5.2)
