    Re: how to split mp3 files

    Thanks for the suggestion Andrew. I've looked at mp3splt and mencoder.

    Same problem - so many options and so little documentation!

    Re: how to split mp3 files

    ffmpeg should work, did you enable mp3 encoding?

    The reason I`m posting though is I`v always thought mencoder/mplayer had too much documentation. The man pages are huge.

    When searching man pages press the / key

    Then type the word you are looking for, whatever it is mp3 for example, then press Enter.

    This will perform a search of the man page for that string, If you press the N key it will go to the next place that string appears. Makes reading man pages a lot easier.


    This is actually a feature of less, which opens the man pages. You can search any text file with less in this way.

    In defense of mp3splt the documentation in the man pages is actually pretty comprehensive, in particular at the bottom you will see some examples given which spell out the basic usage. To follow Ron's example you could start 10 minutes into a file and extract 20 minutes as follows:

    Code:
    andrew@skamandros~/music/ftgws$ mp3splt ftgws_03102010.mp3 10.00 30.00
    mp3splt 2.2.6a (30/07/09) - using libmp3splt 0.5.7a
    	Matteo Trotta <mtrotta AT users.sourceforge.net>
    	Alexandru Munteanu <io_fx AT yahoo.fr>

     Processing file 'ftgws_03102010.mp3' ...
     info: file matches the plugin 'mp3 (libmad)'
     info: MPEG 1 Layer 3 - 44100 Hz - Joint Stereo - FRAME MODE - Total time: 131m.57s
     info: starting normal split
       File "ftgws_03102010_10m_00s__30m_00s.mp3" created                    
     Processed 68907 frames - Sync errors: 0
     file split
    Another usage would be to split the file into 20 minute lengths:

    Code:
    andrew@skamandros~/music/ftgws$ mp3splt -t  20.00 ftgws_03102010.mp3
    mp3splt 2.2.6a (30/07/09) - using libmp3splt 0.5.7a

     info: MPEG 1 Layer 3 - 44100 Hz - Joint Stereo - FRAME MODE - Total time: 131m.57s
     info: starting time mode split
       File "ftgws_03102010_00m_00s__20m_00s.mp3" created                   
       File "ftgws_03102010_20m_00s__40m_00s.mp3" created                   
       File "ftgws_03102010_40m_00s__60m_00s.mp3" created                   
       File "ftgws_03102010_60m_00s__80m_00s.mp3" created                   
       File "ftgws_03102010_80m_00s__100m_00s.mp3" created                   
       File "ftgws_03102010_100m_00s__120m_00s.mp3" created                   
       File "ftgws_03102010_120m_00s__131m_57s_08h.mp3" created                 
     Processed 303077 frames - Sync errors: 0
     time split ok
    Plus a lot more options carefully explained in the man pages .
