7digital beta site

I’ve just discovered that 7digital has a hidden beta site where you can filter searches by file format. Finally we can search their shop for MP3 format tracks/albums!

Previously I’ve fallen into the trap of thinking that their WMA files will play using the Fluendo codec, but it turns out they still need to be unlocked on a Windows machine (which I don’t have).

I remember back to when the evil format was MP3, and now it’s the lesser of the evils. I wish these shops would sell music in OGG format.
