Would it be possible to have a small section of text in the exporting window telling you the size of the file that will be created? I use discord for fle hosting and sharing audio but they have a limit of 8 megabytes (not megabits). This feature would take a lot of guess work out of my day and I could finally stop exporting crappy MP3 audio and maybe do FLAC.
You could make yourself a spreadsheet…
The the bitrate is kilo_bits_ per second so you can divide by 8 to get the file size in kilo_bytes_ per second.
You can’t perfectly-predict the bitrate for FLAC but is should be about half the uncompressed bitrate. (i.e. Uncompressed CD quality audio is 44.1kHz x 16 bits x channels = 1411kbps and a similar FLAC should be around 750kbps.
Unfortunately, I’m really bad at math and I don’t have any experience with spreadsheets…
I could try and learn though…
CD quality stereo WAV file (16-bit, 44100 Hz, stereo): 10 MB per minute.
CD quality mono WAV file (16-bit, 44100 Hz, mono): 5 MB per minute.
MP3 / OGG / AAC / AC3 / WMA: 1 to 2 MB per minute.
Thank you! I might be able to do it!
