Greetings, is there any software that can encode a MP3 file to the Arduino
I tried electronic GURU's encoder
Here's the hardware:
is any software out there to convert an MP3 file to the arduino
I actually think he might be fooling himself that he is saving the file as an MP3 in the first place. My version of Audacity won't do that, but then I have an old one.
I followed all the steps to the video, I have a Arduino Mega 2560.
So, I was wondering if anybody knew if there was a software solution to converting an MP3 file to the Arduino, not having that SD card stuff and extra hardware that I would have to buy.
Yes there is Audacity, no need to save it as an MP3. Save it as a wav file.
I have TIP120s with a 5V speaker from a old trimline phone.
So, I was wondering if anybody knew if there was a software solution to converting an MP3 file to the Arduino
but the Arduino can only play 16 bit PCM 8kHZ audio mp3 & that mp3 should be coded using a encoder software
But he says, time and time again that this will not work with a Mega.
the only down side is the low memory of Arduino uno allows us to play a audio of approx 4-5 sec but you can use ARDUINO MEGA to solve this
well practically this concept is not of much use but its kind a educational & fun too
Implying that you can get a few more seconds with a MEGA.
Sorry, I did, I wasn't too sure.
That's confusing.... But, it does NOT play MP3... It plays MP3s that are decompressed (decoded) and then "encoded" to PCM. The PCM version is (somehow) loaded into the Arduino.
Strange, I've been using Audacity to export MP3 files for years.On Linux, it just works, on Windows, you had to install ffmpeg/lame encoders (but I haven't used Windows in years, so it might've changed).
He's got a file called PCM.ZIP and that includes a file called EncodeAudio.exe.
But I am on a Mac. It asks where the lame encoder is, but it is not on my machine and I don't know where to get it.
Mac: LAME is now built-in with Audacity for Mac.
