It's the latest greatest codec, with superb quality / space tradeoff, but it focuses on somewhat higher bitrates than Speex, so it may not be better for you. It's hard to tell because the settings that you give tell me nothing, I think that it would be better if you gave us your current and target bitrates.
I'm flexible here: the bitrate is less important than having data that's understandable at the lowest possible file size. For example, I could just re-encode using our MP3 Quality Modifier
to a lower bitrate but I'm hoping for a better codec than MP3 or Speex. As Wikipedia puts it
, the codec that throws out as much as possible while "... keeping just enough to reconstruct an 'intelligible' voice" without noticeable artifacts.
Yeah, that's definitely what I'm looking for, but it looks like they're working with this as a streaming system at this point in the development rather than the encoding of a saved file?
Anyway, thanks for the info. I'll keep my eye on this project.
