In a discussion yesterday I said that it would be really easy
to write a dumper similar to jpg2dct for mp3.
...And appears that I was right ;)
Its far from perfect (has problems with some tags and buggy mp3s)
but still should be usable.
But then, another unexpected problem appeared.
I don't think that there's any significant amount of
redundant information in the dump file, but still it
has a fixed record size of 5610 which is kinda too
much for universal compressors.
And I'm too lazy to try and compress a 45M file with paq8,
so here's a question: can anybody compress that dump better
than original mp3, and how much?
