I have some audio from a radio talk show. my intention is that it's not high fidelity / could even be mono. I want to get the smallest file size without too much degredation considering it's just people talking.
I am using streaming audio recorder and chose MP3 for the output.
For example, 1 file I have is 2meg and 1 min 30 seconds. the properties of the file says bitrate 173 bps. Not sure if that's high / low fidelity.
I'd like to have the smallest size file for audio.... and also, using audio to video converter websites, I get an mp4 that's 2MB also (static picture or black screen would be fine).
What are some things I should know / do to get the smallest files for spoken word audio?
