I've been looking into sending voice comments via webmentions, the Opus codec has become the default audio codec for the internet.

voice quality and file size test:

  • 48Kh mono @ 8Kbits/sec 1:13:50 (H:MM:SS) filesize: 4.6 MB (4573796 bytes)
  • 48Kh mono @ 8Kbits/sec 20:33 (MM:SS) filesize: 1.2 MB (1231171 bytes)

Pre-histroy

Around 2007 I found Moodlesppex a java applet that would:

  • record voice message
  • compress the audio into the speex codec
  • upload the audio

I ported it to wordpress around 2007 (source code lost to history :( ).

I looked at adobe flash when I found out it supported speex codec, but at the time I all them need a RTMP server to capture the audio.


History

early examples

  • voice email

I remember plugins/addons for email clients that would allow you to record a message attachment(?) I dont remember what audio codec they used (ADPCM?, realaudio?)

I also remember a application that would allow you to record a message
