New version draft[edit]

I've created a new version of this template at Template:MediaCompression/v2draft. I'll move it to this page in a few days if nobody has any issues with it. --Tom Edwards 12:26, 1 December 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It to big and likely wont work well small screen resolution not to mention you've hard-coded the background color. I would be generally unopposed to breaking up the template. -Dispenser 18:29, 1 December 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
You have a fair point with the colours (although, in my defence, it is a Wiki limitation). But while the draft design might not be brilliant at low resolutions, I personally consider that a lower priority than the template being easily readable - which in its current state it really is not, on anyone's screen! --Tom Edwards 18:36, 1 December 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'll merge in half and hour. --Tom Edwards 15:59, 3 December 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
OK, done. I replaced background colours with dotted borders, which doesn't quite look as good but will work cross-theme. We really need some classes for this sort of thing! --Tom Edwards 16:39, 3 December 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think that this is a good draft and should be swapped with this current template. Great work!-Hairchrm 22:56, 6 January 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think Layer 2 should be listed before Layer 3 on account of numerical/chronological/evolutionary ordering XanderJ 19:13, 22 August 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Additions[edit]

Shouldn't JFIF, JIF, and Exif be added to the MM Container section? algocu 16:11, 5 December 2006 (UTC)

EXIF isn't a container format; it's a format for metadata tags similar to the one used for TIFFs. (I'm not saying the other two are container formats; I just don't know.) grendel|khan 01:36, 10 December 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Shouldn't Audio Compression Formats include DTS? 22:07, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

Redone with {{navbox generic}}.[edit]

Have a look at this one. I used nested tables inside {{navbox generic}} in order to get the show/hide and v-d-e buttons. This version has less whitespace than the current one, so it's not quite so huge. Suggestions for colors/themes or styling welcome. Also for how to get the navbox to default to hidden. (Actually, at this size, do we want to default it to hidden?) grendel|khan 02:07, 10 December 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Compression?[edit]

AIFF is not a compression format. Nor is WAV. But, if we are including those file types (non-compressed) then we need to add in RIFF to the audio only section. Thank you!-Hairchrm 22:55, 6 January 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Implemented. Hope no one hates it... grendel|khan 22:21, 14 December 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

AMR?[edit]

Apparently AMR-WB is G.722.2 in this template. But where is AMR itself? --82.195.186.220 16:23, 26 February 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
