Where's the list promised in the title of this thread?

Soulhunter provides a technically oriented list. But where's a list that contains abbreviations like:

LOL
PCT
CQR
IIRC

etc etc.

Regards.

Some of this stuff like "LOL" and "IIRC" you can find in this thread !!!

For all other stuff give Wikipedia and AcronymFinder a try...

EDIT: Some more links -> 1, 2, 3, 4 !!!

DRC = Dynamic Rate Change
i thought it was "dynamic range compression", a-la AC3? dynamic rate change sounds like a roundabout way of saying VBR to me.

[edit]

oh, and soul: why not add the one in your sig: CQM = Custom Quantisation Matrix

Dunno, this is what Google gives me...

- Dynamics Research Corporation
- Distribution Review Committee
- Democratic Republic of Congo
- Diagonal Reverse And Center
- Disability Rights Commission
- Defense Review Committee
- Dynamic Range Control
- Dynamic Rate Change
- Data Resource Center
- Design Rule Checking


EDIT:

Dynamic Range Control and Dynamic Range Compression is the same thing, no?

Ok, I did a small research !!!

Seems Dynamic Rate Change has more to do with data transmission...

As Dynamic Range Control fits more to A/V I gonna edit my list (and add some new stuff) !!!

ooohoh!!!

It is now that I note that the abbreviations have a real significance.
Thank you, for your contribution.

Ultimately, I do not even know if these abbreviations will be useful to me.
