Hi there...

does anyone know of any way to combine MP3 files at the server side? (so for example I upload an mp3 file in 3 parts and then download it in one part)

any help would be greatly appreciated

Cheers
Lachlan

why the hell would you do that? saving bandwith? php can process up to 16MB of upload (is not always the occasion, so check your upload settings first),
if the size matters (mostly it does) :P I suggest you use winrar or any other zipping archive, I mostly use ACE or UHARC, the last one will probably resize your 3264kb big mp3 file to 42kb..

I can think of plenty of reasons... (why would anyone ever need more than 640kb of ram?)

Multi-user mp3 file creation, dynamic track creation depending upon the actions of a user or other server activities and other ideas yet to be explored...

so is there any way to combine multiple mp3''s on a server into one single mp3 for download?

cheers

First of all, your not gonna start comparing me with Bill Gates ok?

are you talking about one single mp3 in three parts being uploaded or a dynamic mixing panel on server-side that can be controlled by users?

;)
it can be pretty simple... just needs to glue 1.mp3 to 2.mp3 to create 3.mp3...
If necessary I can even demand that the files all be the same bit rate etc..

This way perhaps you can create an mp3 "conversation" that occurs between users and is downloaded as a single whole by another....
