SELA v2 - A lossless audio codec with focus on simplicity and code quality 2020-04-02 12:26:39 Before any of you get your pitchforks, this codec is supposed to be used for educational purposes not for compressing your CDs (there are better codecs for that ). I wrote this codec 4 years ago as my final year project and recently I rewrote the whole thing from ground up in C++ and Java because I was unhappy with the code quality of original project. The main focus of this is code quality and simplicity so that people can understand how the math of lossless codecs work. The core encoder and decoder modules and the associated maths is just around 700 Lines of code and the total project is around 1.6k lines of code.Project repository: https://github.com/sahaRatul/selaExecutables here: https://github.com/sahaRatul/sela/releasesHow is the compression ratio you might ask. Well it's worse than FLAC but not hopeless. Most music comes to around 0.5-3 MB of file size differences though I have seen differences of upto 5-6 MBs as well in worst case scenarios.
