Stop being poor and buy some HP SAS drives, store all your music as FLAC and encode to opus if you want to play it on your shitbox.
>>
>>70164266
I cannot tell the difference between MP3 320 CBR and MP3 V2 with an ABX test but I still have a lossless collection. If you just download 320 CBR music, you can never re-encode the music to a lower quality without fucking it up even more. Having a lossless collection so you can encode to a decent quality for your phone while minimizing the file size is the way to go.

1. Buy digital album in FLAC
2. Follow link provided to download it
3. Done; as soon as my phone connects to WLAN, i can see it in my music player and stream it there or just keep it locally
Setting this up took about an hour. So much fucking work, anon, i'd totally rather pay monthly to "own" a shitty encode on spotify. And the 10TB SAS drives really aren't that expensive, if you have a job.

Did MySpace really go under overnight, without you having a chance to backup stuff?
>>
>>70172964
You think I was going to go through thousands of posts and pictures. It would have taken days, and I didn't have the time. Also, back in the MySpace days, I had a slow as hell Internet connection on a failing XP machine that probably didn't have enough storage available anyway. Also, they did just sort of announce that it would be going away over night.
>>
>>70173059
So if what happened to MySpace happened to Spotify, you'd have plenty of time to find an alternative? Pretty bad example then.
>>
>>70166816
Absolutely unacceptable
>>
>>70173073
Not really. Actually it would be worse in that case. Imagine being a premium member and having a ton of custom playlists and settings that could never be ported to any other platform. You'd have to go from your comfy config to starting from the ground up.
>>
>>70173177
You still could do it manually, even if they don't have an export feature. So not quite the disaster scenario you painted, it would just be possibly tedious to move from Spotify to local stuff. (Though in reality another streaming service would be a more likely alternative.)
>>
>>70173197
Yeah, but the thing is you never have to worry about that if you store everything locally. You never have to worry about an Internet outage/censorship either.
>>
>>70165436
I only started using Spotify because I figured it'd be a little more convenient than having to download all of my music, my internet is complete shit. I haven't paid attention to how much storage it takes up on PC but on my phone it literally took up probably half of my phone's storage. If I'm entirely honest, I haven't listened to music "locally" in a major sense in a long time. I used to have a portable sony CD/DVD player and I would use limewire to get music and burn it onto CDs, basically since then I just listened to shit on YouTube (unless you count turntable.fm, rip)

I used foobar for like a year after I got my laptop for college. Fun times. Eventually I got pissed at the skin I had and then tried a new one, it was also equally shit i eventually just gave up because i'm terrible at organizing all my music and I couldn't find a cool enough skin.
God that was all so long ago, I used to download so much music and stuff. Now I just listen to anything I want on youtube, but I still have like 200GB of music on my computer for no reason I guess haha.

In any case, you can get them as low as 50$ (in yuropoor) with some slight mileage on them. Data centers replace them as soon as there's one bad block or whenever they upgrade (which is retarded, but hey, dirt cheap SAS drives).

It's a video/music player that lets you manage your library and fetches metadeta to make it all pretty. It's standalone and it has visualizations you can download if you use it for music.

I let it play in shuffle in my living room and it's pretty nice, work well with a remote control.
