Please send me the file (if smaller than 1 Meg) to If it's a bug, I'll fix it. To make that easier, please give me the exact options you used for both the encoder and decoder.

Sorry, it´s not bug, at least not in speex, it was a problem with my soundcard and 8kHz-files. A new set of new drivers fixed that.

You mean the missing last half second bug or the "Knackser" at 8 kbps? If it's the second, I'd like to look at it...

No the "Knackser" was caused by my soundcard, the missing half second at the end is (at least I think so) not caused by my soundcard.

I found out that you can compress the files with zip/rar/ace by about 5%. This is quite high, maybe you can improve the huffman-coding (or whatever you use).

A GUI for those less computer savvy would be a big plus. There is a fellow on this site that makes great gui's all the time but I can't remember his nick.

Do you think he might add this to his project list?

I think this is not the right time to create a GUI. The Speex project is still in early alpha stage, and command line switches can still change.

Besides, this release isn't intended yet to be used for newbies. The purpose is to test the technology - it will still change a lot, and files encoded with this release probably won't be decodable with next release.

Actually, the current state of Speex is more than just testing the technology. I plan to release the first beta, along with a bit-stream freeze within a month. Although I cannot promise, it is quite possible that the current 0.7.0 bit-stream will be the final one. The command-line switches will quite likely stay the same too. Only the API will change slightly in the next release, something that hasn't happened in a long while.

Thanks to everyone who made Speex and also for the Win32 binary. I'd been anxious to try it and was not disappionted. At about 3.5kbps the results were very nice -- makes 32kbps MP3 sound like .RA in comparison. =D

Doh  Sorry Speek 

I hear what you say about newbies. I have to confess I bought my first box strictly for audio and just started using it about 2 years ago when I first found Napster and --r3mix.

Its just the curiosity thing getting me. This is an app that I can use and from what I am hearing about it, this programme rocks a bit.

Time to be patient.
