SERMONAUDIO TIP
Auto-Convert MP3 Uploads Makes Broadcasting Easier!
Attention all broadcasters!

We are pleased to announce an important new feature that makes it even easier for broadcasters to upload their sermons to SermonAudio.com! Previously, all MP3s being uploaded needed to be in the precise 16kbps bitrate format in order for the upload to succeed. But now you can upload your audio in the MP3/WMA/M4A/WAV format, at any bitrate, and we will automatically convert it to the correct MP3 format for you with the ideal settings for optimum sound quality!

Update 9/24/10! You can now upload in the MP3, WMA, M4A, or WAV audio format -- at any bitrate. However, we highly discourage uploading in the WAV format as the files are very large and will take longer to process.

Many of today's handheld digital voice recorders and free audio software tools can already record directly into the MP3 or WMA format. The difficulty in the past has typically been in getting the bitrate setting just right. Now you can simply RECORD and UPLOAD! Hooray for auto-convert!

There are still some good reasons to have your MP3s already encoded in the correct 16kbps format before uploading to our site. First, it will speed up your own upload time as the filesize will be much smaller. And second, our system will automatically skip the conversion process if it detects that the MP3 is already in the correct 16kbps format—which means that your audio will appear publicly on the site much faster.

Having said that, we use optimal conversion settings so your MP3s will sound great if you allow us to perform the auto-conversion! Give it a try!

For HIFI broadcasters, the same process applies except with the higher bitrate. Any MP3s uploaded that are greater than 64kbps will automatically be converted to the correct 64kbps bitrate. If the MP3 is 64kbps or lower, the system will skip the auto-conversion process.

Enjoy!

If I do variable-bitrate encoding with an average of 16kbps, will the resulting file be reconcverted? Or do I have to use 16kbps constant-bitrate encoding? Thanks!

Scott, we have tested this extensively ourselves because we too had similar questions. But we have found that the quality after the conversion is very good and is really not an issue. Convenience is where this type of feature really shines.

But if the broadcaster is concerned about quality, they will always have the option to encode directly to the required bitrate themselves before uploading and we will not re-encode it in that case. Thank you.

I'd be curious to know how this conversion process from MP3 to MP3 affects sound quality vs encoding it from WAV with a tool like lame.
