At the moment, all the audio files on my web site are MP3 192 format. I was wondering if I am able to cut down the file size while still maintaining credible audio sound. What format would be best for this? I don't mind having to convert the current files to another format.

My web site is www.mcran.com

Hi Randy,

Thanks for stopping by the forum - it's always great to see familiar faces!

I cannot say I am too familiar with changing the bitrate of an mp3 file, however, I have found a few software tools that can be used to do this on public forums. Here are a few suggestions:

BeSweet
CDex

Again, I am not a pro in this field, but am hopeful this will get you looking in the right direction. Let us know how it goes for you!

Hi Brianna!

Actually I am looking at the OGG Vorbis format. At the moment, my radio shows are on my web site as MP3 192 bit format with a file size or around 165MB. When I convert to OGG Vorbis 128bit format they sound great with a file size of around 77MB.
