    Question opus goof choise for low cpu comsuming? what audio format is the lightest to decode ?

    Hi
    i have always used foobar for windows from the beginning
    and i have installed foobar for android on all my mobiles 1.1.17

    may I ask 2 questions?

    1)
    may i know what audio format is the lightest to decode (for a long batter life) ? seeing i really love listen music with foobar with android with my smartphone and tablet
    i tried the decode speed test for
    i got for the same song , no DSP
    aac qaac 150kb ->67.686x realtime
    opus 96kb -> 39.208x
    mp3 190kb -> 46.299x
    well , looks that mp4 is the most light to decode on my smartphone (i tried on a samsung s6) , even i have read lots about opus and for many users it's the most light to decode
    I haven't tested org vorbis
    can somebody tell me if there is a serious test about decoding?


    2) my second question , is about playing several album of the same artist
    i got to browse -> album artist/album -> tap (in my case on Pearl Jam "i have 4 albums" ) -> i can see all the covers of my albums + all tracks and shuffle albums -> i tap all tracks
    but i get a list of songs not sorted , i mean first track of one album, 3 songs of another album and so on


    on tools i have playback order default
    on advanced sort album by date -> active


    can i have all songs sorted by albums (it will be enough)?

    thanks for the wonderful program and sorry for my poor english

    You should also try lossless formats. FLAC may have a better decoding speed. But I recommend to stick to OPUS, which is most space/quality optimal format, at 48-64 kpbs it sounds transparent and you can store thousands of albums.
