The Split3PM History
A great new feature: "sliced" mp3s. What this means: split3pm generates a new mp3, that contains the first 10 seconds of every two-minute block in a mp3. If you have a large MP3 dj set (and I mean, like, a several hours long live set), and you want to locate a song, scrolling in winamp can be a PITA. With this feature you can locate the track and calculate at which position in the original file it is. Use -@ rather than specifiying a time limit for this feature.
Bugfix of - uhm, I forgot ;)
- Handle ID3v2 Tags at the beginning of a file gracefully.
- Use "0" as a valid timespec for "beginning of file". You used to have to write "0:0"
- Don't fail if the max. time is higher than the file time, just use the max. time instead.
Split3PM is now is Open Source, and features direct command line arguments (no need to give a script if you just want a specific piece)
Version 1.1 now has been tested against 128kbit, 160kbit and 192kbit rates (those that I use), and - believe it or not - it works.
Version 1.0 was seriously broken.
