    Hi Naveen, Zach,

    About a year ago there was a short but interesting discussion on
    this forum between me and Naveen about the size of VBR encoded
    WMA-musicfiles. Encoded with WMA9.1 (WMA10) the files came out
    over 25% larger with higher average bitrates.

    This was confirmed as a bug in the WMA9.1 encoder by Naveen and
    was scheduled to be solved in an update of the WMA10 mediaplayer.

    Recently I downloaded WMA10 again and noticed the version-# had
    changed. My question now is whether this VBR-size bug has been
    solved in this new version. Could any of you please shine some
    light on this?

    Thanks for your time,

    I personally don't know (I didn't follow out, and since it's 8AM on a
    Saturday morning and I'm still at work from the night before, I'd probably
    suggest you would be in a much better place to spend the time answering the
    question. =)

    I believe I vaguely recall what you were referring to, but I did not track
    that at all, and as such I'd be in about square one in terms of internal
    investigation, so would have to do the same basic test you would do. =)

    (speaking for myself and doing this in my free time)
    See http://zachd.com/pss/pss.html for some helpful WMP info.

    Not to the level you're referring to, no. I'm not aware of MS ever doing
    that kind of thing.
