they come in 128kbps AAC i believe.. if that's the case then convert play time to seconds.. then multiply by 128 so.. (time in seconds) * 128 = (size of file in kilobytes). to get megabytes divide that (size of file in kilobytes) by 1024 and you'll get megabytesfjs08 said:Hi,
Thinking about buying an audio book from iTunes store. How do I convert time of play to megs of space that it would take up on my iPod??? Is there any guide??
I have an audio book from Apple with a run time of 1 hour 18 minutes. It takes up 18 megs of space and iTunes says the sample rate is 24 khz which is almost half the rate of the normal 44.1 khz of music downloaded thru iTMS. So, I don't think your book is going to take up nearly as much space as what you thing it will.fjs08 said:>>they come in 128kbps AAC<<
So if that's the largest size/second and if a book is say 5 hours long, we are looking at something like 2.2 GB. I guess that's correct. So if I have a 15 gig iPod, I should be ok. I guess<g>.
like i said check into audible.. from what i've seen apple gets their books FROM audible..fjs08 said:>>I don't think your book is going to take up nearly as much space as what you thing it will.<,
Guess all I have to worry about is my iPod battery !!
Can they be burned to cd's too???? Like a "regular" song from iTunes?? I can take it along in my car.
Thanks for all the help.
