Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

silences cutting out

I have to convert big wav files using a speech codec. There are a lot of silences and I have to cut away them to take final size as small as possible. Im testing Speex with DTX (in addition to VAD/VBR): it works good but, as documented:
we cannot just stop writing to the file, only 5 bits are used for such frames (corresponding to 250 bps)
, so it can't cut out silences.

Maybe I need to use another tool (better if command line) that detects silences into wav, cut them out then rebuild wav so than I can give it to Speex (or another codec).

Any suggestions?
