MP3 decoding

Recommended Posts

I'm just wondering if there's any way to get my hands on the MP3 specs, i'm working on an mp3 decoder for a game engine, cause compressing wav with huffman, was no success =(... anyway, what I have so far is the info for mp3 headers, that is how to get the kbps/freq that kind of things + reading the ID3 tag...What i'm really interested in is the audio data, anyone that knows where it's located inside the frames??

I highly suggest you use an existing MP3 decoder to decompress the data. The FMOD sound library has support for MP3''s, and has a very highly optimized decoder.

You might want to have a look at Ogg Vorbis though.

There are some nasty liscensing issues with MP3, and Vorbis is FREE, with just-as-good/better quality & filesizes.

Check it out, I''m glad I did. (And they have OpenSource enc/dec libs)
