Question for everyone. I am debating what standard encoding to use for the website I am working on. How does 192 kbps MP3 sound? Would that be acceptable for the actual files that I plan to have direct HTML 5 audio links for? It's either that or ogg vorbis. The intention is to keep the size to a minimum while maintaining a good degree of quality and that seemed like a good compromise.

Ok guys. This is definitely going to take me some time considering I am basically building the site from scratch, but here is a preview of what is to come.

It obviously still needs work, but I wanted to prove that I am seriously doing this.

Ha, nice title.

 

In all seriousness it's actually an incredibly appropriate title. Here is the Omar quote that is going on the home page.

 

"It's like a faucet. Things are just coming out all the time and I have nothing else to do except put them down and document them. I'm putting buckets under the sink and it's leaking everywhere and I catch what I can."

 

Right so for those unfamiliar with HTML 5 audio, you can right click on the little audio player and save each file individually. For any other page that accepts HTML 5 audio, you can also link to it directly, the same way you would an image file.

 

The coma has an awesome flash player that automatically will create an interface, like below.

My only worry is that Omar's legal team will come down hard on you. God speed!

Omar affording a legal team to shut down free promotion of his music, Cedric having to crowd-fund Zavalaz. Go figure.

If someone close to team Omar contacts me and tells me to take it all down, legal precedent or not, I would abide by their wishes. God only knows who has the distribution rights these days. And this really gets back to my point. It's a gigantic mess right now. Albums are scattered all over digital download sites, physical copies are practically gone. It makes almost zero sense to attempt to control distribution of his music any more.

I recommend adding preload attributes to all the audio tags and setting it to none. No need to download all the audio files on page load.

N2o (record label) will most definitely come at you to take down Calibration. They are very litigious. Years back when Myspace was cool, they sent me the nastiest email to take down a track that I had uploaded to an Omar music page I created. Very mean spirited and threatening a lawsuit.

Good call. I will do that tomorrow.

I will keep this in mind.

Awesome. Thanks in advance!

All my Omar solo material was accidentally deleted when I transfered files off my now dead laptop. Also, lost my iPod that had all those files, so I've been without anything as of a few months ago.

Everything is going to be in 192 kbps. I thought it would be a good compromise between size and quality.

Home page is now up...

 

www.leakyfaucet.us

 

It currently has everything up to and including Despair in the order of when the albums were released. So about a third of the way through. This is a very time consuming process.

 

Let me know if anything is broken, other than the links to the albums I have not put up to the site yet.

You also said in the first post : "perhaphs we have to do this for Omar" or a stuff like that... And finally, you are leaking this in 192 mp3 bitrate ? I think Omar has to delete this, just because this format is totally indecent and the russian stuff is in flac... Also, why Omar don't do this if he needs this ? You are doing this only for you and only for people who want an audio library for discover the song "encyclopedically".
