A good memory, but not quite what the original poster asked for.
yes because this is the source code for the decoder layer1,2,3
To my knowledge (and I'll gladly be updated) there is no "MPEG 1 Layer 3
Audio encoder source" as per the original query. As I understand it,
MPEG only define the bitstream format and hence there is scope for
proprietary implementations of encoding algorithms - hence no encoding
wrong, there is a public C souce code for the encoder
this tar contains the mpeg2 encoder and decoder with low sampling freq and
multichannel and *including* all mpeg1 formats .
although the readme does not mention layer 3 there is a layer 3 lsf (and mpeg1!)
encoder included !
However, my reading of the various source codes that are around
is that the intention is to release a noddy version (read "reference"
version) of these codecs one day.
Anybody in the know knows when that day will be?
this is the day...
