Sorry for the grovel but my coding is horrible. There is a compression format
shorten that is a lossless compression format for wav files. THey shrink the
size by almost half. There are the de facto standard for trading digital
bootlegs across the net because they do not affect sound quality. There is an
xmms plugin to use them and decompress on te fly. I think the functionalty
would be great for pma. If you use wavs this would save a lot of hd space. the
plugin that does the on the fly decompression can be found at :
Thank you very much and once again sorry for the grovel.
I would be willing to test the software in early releases if someone would be
interestted. I am also going to mail the author of the plugin to see if he
would be interested.
