A question about MP3 and Vector Quantization 2020-08-04 21:09:49 This is posted on behalf of a new member the_g. This was asked of me via PM but as I lack the knowledge to provide an answer, I put it to the wider and more knowledgeable audience. QuoteHello,I'm new in this forum and I can't understand how it works. I would like to post this question but I don't know how to do it. I hope you can help me (i've found you randomly).My problem is about the MP3 technique and the Vector Quantization lossy technique. I have a .wav file that I want to compress: for this I've written a matlab code and I've got some results. The fact is that: the values of the MSE between the original .wav file and the one compressed with VQ technique is lower and the MSE between the original .wav file and the one compressed with the .mp3 technique. How is it possible?In this way it seems that the SNR of the .mp3 audio is lower than the one obtained with the VQ technique: but in reality the quality of the .mp3 file is way better.I hope you can help me.. and sorry for the trouble.
