MPEGLAYER3WAVEFORMAT structure

The MPEGLAYER3WAVEFORMAT structure describes an MPEG Audio Layer-3 (MP3) audio format.

Syntax


typedef struct mpeglayer3waveformat_tag {
  WAVEFORMATEX wfx;
  WORD         wID;
  DWORD        fdwFlags;
  WORD         nBlockSize;
  WORD         nFramesPerBlock;
  WORD         nCodecDelay;
} MPEGLAYER3WAVEFORMAT;

Members

wfx

WAVEFORMATEX structure that specifies the basic audio format. The wFormatTag member must be WAVE_FORMAT_MPEGLAYER3. The cbSize member must be at least 12. (For cbSize, you can use the constant MPEGLAYER3_WFX_EXTRA_BYTES, defined in the Mmreg.h.)

wID

Set this structure member to MPEGLAYER3_ID_MPEG.

fdwFlags

Indicates whether padding is used to adjust the average bitrate to the sampling rate. Use one of the following values:

ValueMeaning
MPEGLAYER3_FLAG_PADDING_ISO
0x00000000

Insert padding as needed to achieve the stated average bitrate.

MPEGLAYER3_FLAG_PADDING_ON
0x00000001

Always insert padding. The average bit rate may be higher than stated.

MPEGLAYER3_FLAG_PADDING_OFF
0x00000002

Never insert padding. The average bit rate may be lower than stated.

 

nBlockSize

Block size in bytes. This value equals the frame length in bytes x nFramesPerBlock. For MP3 audio, the frame length is calculated as follows: 144 x (bitrate / sample rate) + padding.

nFramesPerBlock

Number of audio frames per block.

nCodecDelay

Encoder delay in samples. If you do not know this value, set this structure member to zero.
