    Decoding & Encoding the sound?!?

    Hey guys, could anyone shed some light on the "decoding and Encoding the sound files" topic?

    Like, if i want to take a Real Audio sound file and change it to the MP3, where do i get the source for those formats if i don't have a single clue how they are encoded...

    Just trying to understand all the things around me

    Well MP3 is a rather complicated file format (like any other compressed format) so you may want to first get a full grasp on the basics. You should get an understanding of programming sound and a have a full understanding of uncompressed file formats before jumping into questions like "how does this mp3 thing work?" This would be much more beneficial to you then having some library.

    Demonographic rhinology is not the only possible outcome, but why take the chance
