I'm looking for a MP3 decoding lib faster than
libmad, probably solely written in Intel assembler.
I currently use libmad 0.15.1b to stream MP3 files
into WAV sound buffers and I need to improve the
The mere task of streaming a single audio file
saps about 11 milliseconds (@1.8GHz).
libmad uses inline and asm here and there, but the
costliest parts (frame decoding and synthing) are
written in C, optimized for speed but still C.
So, my question is if there's anything freely
available that decodes faster than libmad?
