I\'ve resorted to post this because I\'ve utterly failed at finding the information myself. I want to use MP3\'s as a bed for the ambient audio in the game I\'m working on. In addition, I was going to add various 22k .wav files of very specific audio (creatures stirring, wolf howls) that would be randonly chosen (very infrequently mind you)and randomly placed in a 3d environment. Well our programmer has all of it in place, the problem is that I can\'t find a way to encode MP3\'s without putting 10-15 milliseconds of silence in the head and foot of the MP3 file!!!!! I\'ve tried every compression codec available and they all put that space in. OGG doesn\'t, but it\'s too late to switch to that. I\'ve tried finding programs that edit MP3\'s without having to un- and re-compress but I\'ve only found one, MP3 Frame Editor 2.22 by Miodrag Malovic. It doesn\'t work correctly and still leaves space at the head.
I cannot believe that I\'m the first person to try seemlessly looping MP3\'s. I\'m sure there\'s some obvious solution that I\'ve not realized. Can someone offer some solution here?
