MP3's are really just a long sequence of numbers, that figures in a rather complex formular.

The principe is to
1. split the bandwidth into severel frequencies
2. construct a formular, which amplitude looks approx. like the waveform. The formular consists mainly of sines and cosines with variations in length and amplitude.
3. The mp3 stream is constructed by a number of frames, each with it's own 4 bytes long header with information on how to decrypt the folowing sequence of numbers. The header is described as an ISO standard.

If you have no mathematical experience, I surgest you to experiement on using existing components or code.

If you decide to give it a try anyway, I can provide you with information on how to analyse the header.

you better search the net for sound-components, because mp3 is very difficult format, and even if you can do it yourself, it would be very long and hard.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I have a component for that, to play a MP3 file.
It also can decode it to a wav file.
