The problem is proprietary data formats. And here we have an article on a Linux website telling us to convert .wav files to .mp3!

MP3 is a closed, proprietary format. Moreover, it's technically inferior to Ogg. Never convert a .wav file to .mp3; convert it to .ogg. Many popular brands of music player (e.g. Samsung) play .ogg files. Don't buy one that locks you in to proprietary mp3.
