Zenas - technical q.

Why is it that some of the older talks are about 5mb in size, but lots of the more recent ones are getting on for 20mb or more? I remember when I ordered the early CMDs, the talks would be an hour long, but the file size would be fairly small. Now, CAD5 had one hour talks which are four times as big. Is it the sound quality?


When I started I was concerned with fitting as many talks as possible on a single cd as that reduced the cost of distribution - cd's in those days were more expensive and my cash flow was meager. The high compression rate was fine until the mp3 players started to sell like toasters and after doing a bit of research the format of 32khz 22kbit turned out to be the most compatible for these devices as a higher compression rate will not work in portable players. The rate was then lowered and has remained at the same ratio, although sometimes I forget to set it right and one or two files land up being unplayable on the small players.

I use a very special program that compresses audio efficiently, in fact it's the only program that produces precise compression. Audio Active Production Studio Pro (mp3pro.exe). All the other apps produce bigger filesizes for the same rates.

My process is to record the audio using Sound Forge 7, and save the file to a native Windows PCM Wav format. Then to compress it using AAP mentioned above.
Do all things without murmurings and disputings: that ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world...
Philippians 2v14-15

I've hacked up a basic index to the talks on my site. Zenas, you'll notice I'm missing the index file for CAD 2. Would you be able to email it to me?

I'm actually missing all the files in the CAD 2 root folder, though everything else is there. :corbather:

‘John Wesley once received a note which said, “The Lord has told me to tell you that He doesn’t need your book-learning, your Greek, and your Hebrew.”

Wesley answered “Thank you, sir. Your letter was superfluous, however, as I already knew the Lord has no need for my ‘book-learning,’ as you put it. However—although the Lord has not directed me to say so—on my own responsibility I would like to say to you that the Lord does not need your ignorance, either.”

Second technical q. for anyone.

Is there some software (preferable free) that allows me to convert from mp3 to normal audio? I have tons of these talks which work on the computer or my mp3 player, but I want to burn them to CDs so the missus and I can listen in the car. All the software on my laptop allows me to convert from audio to mp3, but not back the other way.

do you have a similar list for Powerpoints?

Nope, I'm afraid not. Although a quick search on the Internet brought up these sites (I haven't looked at them, so they could be wrong or not very good - but they could also be brilliant); there might be some repetition: -

http://www.adelphosweb.com/
http://www.thebiblet...esentations.htm
http://www.thechrist...mouryonline.htm (this one's Fort's - hope you don't mind, Fort: can remove it if you'd like.)
http://www.rhonus.co...files/frame.htm

The above sites might require some looking around themselves to find the Powerpoints.

Bible Talks Online
A good friend of mine is putting this together.

Currently it has a few hundred talks on it, but a project is ongoing to convert the entire AUSCAN tape library to MP3 format and put it on the web. Ultimately this will be 20,000 or 30,000 talks online (I can't remember the exact number).

Truly astonishing!

Hi All.

Towards the end of last year I downloaded some studies by Jim Cowie from somewhere. They are his series on 'The Marriage of the Lamb' - there are six studies in the series. In the fifth study the chairman can be heard introducing the studies and says that they are from the 1992 (definitely) Silverstar (I think) Bible School. I am assuming this is somewhere in North America due to the accents of the various chairmen that are heard. Does anyone know where I dowloaded these from? I thought it was from BibleTalks4U but when I wen back to the site the dates etc don't seem to marry up - according to the website Jim Cowie was at Shippensburg in 1990 and the studies I am talking about were recorded in 1992. The reason I am trying to track them down again is that study 2 only goes for 3 minutes - I assume there was a problem when I originally downloaded it and the file got cut short. I have double checked Bible Talks Online and also the various CMD and CAD indices and cannot seem to find where I downloaded the studies from. If someone could point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.

Peter

Hey I noticed that there wasn't a website that made it easy to add classes that you may have recorded at your home ecclesia (If there is then please direct me to it!). With this in mind I sorta threw together a website that's not even close to perfect but gets the job done. I think it's linked from Bible Talks 4 U but here's the direct address... Livonia Online Tape Library.

You can search for studies and speakers or look at the study index. My dad ran the ecclesia library for a long time so he had a number of bible tapes and he graciously converted hundreds of them to mp3. I've also been er... :) stealing... them from other sites so right now we're up to 1133 bible talks in 208 studies, plus our ecclesia's weekly exhorts. I would encourage people to :P upload their bible talks so I can stop stealing them!

Also, I'd like any suggestions on what can be done to improve the site. So if you see something you don't like, or something is broken on the site then please throw me an email and I'll get right on it!

Hi Andrew

I've enjoyed using your site over the past year or so. In a small ecclesia like ours, we can always use extra "speakers"... :)

Please convey our love to your mom & dad.


BTW, there was someone else on this forum that was talking about mp3 formatted talks...

Matt Smith - My parents say "Hi" and wanted me to pass on their love. My Grandpa fell asleep in the Lord last night (mom's dad) or I'm sure they'd have made an account and said hi themselves.
