mp3plot 0.6.0

A plot of the bitrate distribution of a VBR MP3 file
mp3plot project prints out a plot of the bitrate distribution of a VBR MP3 file (it will also do it for CBR files although it isn't very meaningful).

It should be architecture independent but I haven't tested beyond PCs.
There's a much more mature tool that does the same and more: mp3stat at mp3stat refuses to work on my system(s) and having an interest in mp3's internal structure I gave a shot at it with mp3plot.


Uncompress the source and run ./dist to generate the configure script:

tar zxvf mp3plot-0.3.2.tar.gz
cd mp3plot-0.3.2
make install

OR if you're on a Debian or derived (such as Ubuntu) system you can recreate the debian package:

tar zxvf mp3plot-0.3.2.tar.gz
cd mp3plot-0.3.2
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot

What's New in This Release:
  • Fixed detection of sampling rate (defaulted to 44.1kHz) and CRC flag (displayed its value reversed).
  • Fix of nasty bug with free-form bitrate and corrupted files that led to an infinite loop eventually exhausting memory.
  • More warnings where appropriate
  • Print the theoretical length in seconds
