    Just got my nexus one for AT&T and copied some itunes songs that I had and while playing it sounds like its skipping through the song.

    What format is best for Android? MP3? 256 or 192?

    thanks

    I run .mp3's 192k, from iTunes, sound OK to me but my ears are 62yrs old... Never had any skipping.. Everything else OK with the N1??

    Cheers!

    everything is fine I just copied the files I didn't check if they were 192 or 256 or 390. Some play fine and others don't and all are coming from Itunes.

    Is it possible that the ones that are not working are "protected" with DRM? Some songs purchased through iTunes will be DRM'ed; others will not. I don't believe that Android can unlock the Apple DRM.

    I would stick with 192kbps for .mp3's as its the best median between size and quality.

    Now, unless you are a severe music junky, and you can tell a difference between a 192kbps - 320kbps .mp3 file, then stick with 192.
    [you probably could not tell a difference with the speakers on the N1 anyway lol]

    If you are really hurting for space, then convert them all to 128kbps.

    any lower bitrate than that sounds kind of bad.
