Reduce size of ogg audio files contributed previously for GCI
completed by: Giannis Konstantinidis
mentors: David Bruce
In a previous task, several nice audio files were contributed for potential use in tuxmath and/or tuxtype:
However, the files are much too big for direct use in our programs. This task involves two parts:
1. Using a suitable audio editor (Audacity is a good free choice), create a representative sample of the larger file that could be used in the game as perhaps a 30 to 60-second loop.
2. Re-encode the files at the "-q 3" ogg quality setting. This should reduce the file size by about 50%. I would do this from the command line with oggdec and oggenc, but you may use whatever frontend you like.
