WideMP3 1.0-beta1 reviewDownload
WideMP3 is a relatively simple distributed MP3 encoder
WideMP3 is a relatively simple distributed MP3 encoder. It works in a client-server fashion, with multiple servers and a client that feeds the PCM audio over a network connection to the server. The server sends back the encoded audio, which the client then writes to a file. The actual encoding is done via an external encoder, such as BladeEnc.
Installation is very simple simple.
Extract the source distribution, and compile and install as follows:
Current supported platforms are:
Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 on Intel x86 and Alpha.
Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 on Intel x86
OpenBSD 2.7 on Intel x86
It should also work on FreeBSD, although this has not yet been tested. Positive and negative reports on different platforms will be appreciated, especially if accompanied by a patch to make it work.
If you want to contribute a patch, you must be willing for the patch to be released under the GNU General Public License. Patches should be in context diff format (diff -c) or unified diff format (diff -u).
Currently supported MP3 encoders:
Bladeenc 0.9x - http://bladeenc.mp3.no/
Positive and negative reports for different encoders will be appreciated, especially if accompanied by a patch to make it work.
