Is this calculation right?
I hope I didn't fucked up with switching bits and bytes wink.gif

Thanks for the help,

Willem


CODE
Bitrate 64 kbps
Playtime 5 min

64 kbps = 64000 bps

5 min = 5 x 60 = 300 sec

            64000
64000 bps = ----- bytes/sec
              8

64000 * 300                    2400000
----------- = 2400000 bytes = ----------- = 2.29 MB
     8                        1024 * 1024

Very interesting. Thanks for this. I have a lot of 64kbps files (LAME -V9 -vbr-new), and I've been wondering about how to calculate filesizes as well. According to your formula, a -V9 encoded file (~64kbps) would take up 0.46MB per 1 minute of music, so an hour's worth would be 27.47MB. I'm trying to find out the maximum number of songs I can fit in a 1GB flash player with V9, V8 and V7.
