Hi to all!

How to recode sound files from .wav format to mp3 and back?

I think you have to use a tool such as Xing Mpeg encoder for the .wav format.

There's a open-source wav to mp3 converter named "LAME" (search for "Lame MP3" on google).

There's lots of open source media players, so I guess you could get the code to decode a mp3 from there. Don't know about writing it to a WAV though.

Thanks. It works very good in Red Hat, Windows differs from it. But is there something that works with codecs from Windows?

To be honest, I don't think windows has libraries for this kind of thing. You may want to look at the media player SDK, but don't assume everyone has it.

Anyway, LAME has a windows version IIRC. I can't check it right now because I'm having trouble reaching sourceforge... oh well.

mp3 has a big license fee attached to it no? Isn't ogg vorbis free?

Yes and yes.

Plus the quality of ogg is better ;)

IIRC? May be. I enter http://sourceforge.net/ and read:

I don't need CGI but some library (lib or dll for Windows) with description or source of this library. I can't find it inside lame.org. Am I right?

Sorry, I was using chat abbreviations again. IIRC = If I recall correctly :)

So I was just saying that LAME has a Win32 release as well (at least I think it was Win32 console & dll and not DOS)

You see I download one program, Razor Lame. It's only lame.exe with lame_enc.dll plus application written in Delphi that helps to user choose parameters for lame.exe. Program works very good but there are no documentation for lame_enc.dll for developers.

Take a look at the ogg SDK:
