Magnatune: Plugin should allow user to select between mp3 / mp3lofi / ogg
Last modified: 2018-05-24 19:12:08 UTC
Currently, the plugin always prefers ogg over other ( mp3 ) formats. This should be left to the user with ogg as the default option.
Relevant code ( TrackListHandler.py )
# prefer ogg streams to mp3
if 'oggurl' in self.__track:
trackurl = self.__track['oggurl']
trackurl = self.__track['url']

To choose between different bitrates.
1. mp3 ( 128 kbps )
2. mp3 lofi ( 32 kbps )
3. ogg vorbis ( 80 kbps )
The only reason ( I think ) magnatune offers 3 bitrates, is to stream the tracks from different networks ( wifi / wired / 3g / 4g etc, some of which might have fluctuating bandwidth )
In magnatune plugin preferences dialog, when "I don't have a Magnatune account" is selected, mp3 / mp3lofi / ogg should be listed in "Preferred audio format" drop down, rather than the high bandwidth formats, which are only available for members.
ogg should be the default "Preferred audio format".
