is kinda obvious since mp3 is a proprietary format.
But there are so
many open source mp3 decoders AND encoders. Where / how do these people
get the specs? If they can get the specs then so should I. Can you
please suggest a link / a book or a something where I could get
developer specs for the mp3 format?
You might want to have a look at MAD project. It is an independent
implementation of the ISO/IEC MPEG standards. Its source code might
give you some insight.
I was, once upon a time trying to play mpeg streams using python-pymad
library. Would you be interested in having the unfinished python
gnu /noo/ n. Ox like antelope; (abbr.) /gnoo/ n.
(recursive acronym) Gnu's Not Unix.
