[MPlayer-users] Audio file size
I have been using mplayer to download a streaming audio (WMA)
file, then convert it to WAV and then use 'lame' to convert to MP3.
The only problem is the audio files are too big. Here is the bash
http://example.com:8888/audiofile.wma - dumpfile audiofile.wma
mplayer audiofile.wma -ao pcm:file=audiofile.wav
lame -h audiofile.wav audiofile.mp3
It works just fine, but the final file size is quite large, I must
have some setting incorrect in either mplayer or lame. I think it has
to do with the sample rates ? Here are the file sizes.
audiofile.wma - 3.6 Mb
audiofile.wav - 102.3 Mb
audiofile.mp3 - 9.3 Mb
Any clues please ?
