.WAV File vs. MP3 File
I wanted a special sound file embedded in an Android app every time an event finished. It was a custom sound with verbal instructions, so I needed an embedded sound file to put into the resource raw folder. I tested Android and it will take both an MP3 file and a WAV file. I wanted to know which one was more suitable.
Was I in for a shock, when it came to comparing size. The wav file was 10,337 KB. The mp3 file of the same recording was 1,144 KB. Ten times smaller. Microsoft is still a piece of crap. MP3 it is.
