Unless you're in New Zealand where "muxing" a song means simply combining two or more tunes - "mixing" in other words. :D

Damn fush und chup munchers. :rolleyes:

Makes you wonder what "demuxing" would be though...

I'm just curious to what muxing and demuxing audio means? thanks :)
Faintember pegged it well, it's used mainly in DVD authoring and some editing, iDVD requires muxed files and can only deal with stereo and a single audio track, DVD Studio Pro needs de-muxed audio and can handle surround and stereo files and multiple, switchable soundtracks.

Some editing packages need one or the other.

In your head.
Stripping is also an acciptable term for demuxing media when applied to removeing or separating a single element. It used when a single element is taken from media file, ie Video, audio, timeing, etc...

Nothing to do with hair stripping though.
