is there a program to compress MP3s so it's smaller???
i need a program that can compress the MP3 so it's smaller, and i'll have easier time putting it in a floppy. This will help me save time since I dont' have all these files after shredding them.
MP3s are already EXTREMELY compressed. You won't get them any smaller unless you're willing to lose sound quality.
In case you don't know, the average size of an uncompress music file (like how they are on a CD) is about 40-60MB.
ooh. Thanx for the info, outpatient. 60MB, oh boy, that's pretty big.
Yes mp3 is basically a compressed wav format
say 10 times
where a 44Kherz 1meg wav become
You can try decompressing to wav
then back again as 56Kbps Mp3 files but it be horrible quality which not what ya want.
I see you want to transfer that to your other computer eh? well use a parallel link
cable, direct cable connection and transfer at 100K/sec or 1megabit/sec
You could use the vqf audio compression format. A vqf file is generally 25%-35% smaller. A 96kbps vqf is about the same, if not better sound quality as a 128kbps mp3.
There's a plugin for winamp (here).
There's lots of vqf softwear here. includeing encoders.
Just a thought!
I realize this probably wont help, but it's good for people to know about, if they don't already, anyway.

Yes there is...................microsoft has it.....it is half the size of mp3 and sounds just as good if not better..............
It is called WMA and it kicks **** big time
It probally will not catch on much because "mp3" is such a buzz word................they should have named it "mp4" huh???
I like it alot.........but there is not much support for it by the masses............

It IS a super compressed wav file.
Oblivion, I've heard of WMA many times. Never gave it much thought, though. I'll have to try it sometime.
Sounded great to me........my only problem is that I can seem to find any proggie that convert cda to wma......also napster does not support it ect
It is propriatary(I know I just spelled that wrong ) so I guess others can support it....that sucks too...............oh well
Doesn't WMP7 have a WMA encoder?
Why is it everytime I post something
the same people keep jumping on to it and calling it garbage, etc. dont' understand
blah blah blah
wtp - moving this thread to General Tech forum.
