I'm looking for a low bit rate speech codec to encode audio books, podcasts, lectures etc and play back on an Android phone (galaxy nexus)
My main requirement is to minimize storage, and be compatible with audiobook player apps that remember last stopped positions (e.g. MortPlayer AudioBook)
From what I've seen so far amrwb codec in 3gp container seems good. Opus looks excellent but I don't think Android supports it yet. Is there anything else out there HA experts would recommend for my use case?

Rockbox on android (I think you still need a development build) can play opus or speex. I've been putting voice at 12 kb/s. Another choice is a low bitrate mp3 on google music. (mono, and 22 khz sample rate)
