How much processing power is required to decode an audio mp3 file under linux? Would a 486/100 or 133 do it or would I need something more powerful? What about memory would 4 megs be enough?
Also would using a poor mans sound card(putting a DSP chip on the parallel port) make a difference? (I think I remember hearing its eats alot of cpu power)
What I'm doing is I have a PC/104 486 board and I was thinking of making a mpeg player for my car. They are available commercially for about $1000. I figure I could build it cheaper if I can use these boards I already have.
I guess I could always use a full size motherboard but that would take up alot of room.
