| | Minimum MP3 playback requirements?
Please Login to Remove!
I have found my 8100 to be very useful for playing back audio books. My earphone is mono and uses just one of my ear resources which is good. The trouble is in trying to pull over just any MP3s into the blackberry. I can re-encode the MP3s but it would be helpful to know the minimum standards I can apply so that I can get the smallest possible MP3s to play.
Just this morning I was attempting to play some very tightly encoded MP3s and it completely crashed my Blackberry. That was a problem to be sure. So now I am re-encoding those same files but they are getting almost 10 times bigger.
So much like the "vid2bb.sh" script, I plan to write an mp3-to-bb.sh script to create minimally-sized MP3s for my audio book listening pleasure.
So anyone know the minimal acceptable settings?
