How to use Google Compressor to convert an mp3 to an mp4
Digital audio compression software is a growing market and one that many of us will be familiar with by now.
But there are also newer, more advanced options out there.
One such is Google Compressor, which is an audio-only version of the popular audio software.
In a recent interview with Ars Technic, Google VP of Engineering, Kevin Loo, explained how this tool works.
“The only difference is that the app itself doesn’t use a compressor,” Loo said.
“Instead, it uses a compression engine to achieve a lossless compression of audio.”
So how does it work?
The main difference between the two is that Compress is designed for audio only.
That means it won’t work for MP3s, AACs, or FLACs.
But Loo says that if you need to convert your music to a video format (like 1080p) or if you want to save audio to a file, Compress can help.
In fact, the company said that it’s now using Compress for “high quality and high quality encoding of video streams.”
That means you can now import videos directly into Google Compressed, even if you’re not in a hurry to convert them.
“With Google Compression, we’re helping you optimize video for your devices with a full-featured, optimized video converter and compressor,” Google told Ars.
“Compress is an open source tool that you can download for free.”
That’s not to say that Compressor isn’t capable of doing other kinds of things.
Google has made an SDK available to make it easier for developers to use the tool, so you can make your own apps that convert audio to video.
The downside, however, is that you won’t get the same level of control as you do with a commercial video conversion app.
That’s because the company says it has “limited control over how much compression it uses.”
That limitation, according to Loo and Google, comes from the fact that “there’s no such thing as an automatic, seamless, universal conversion of video to audio.”
That doesn’t mean that you should never try to convert audio into video.
Loo told Ars that you may want to convert a video to a certain format to reduce the amount of compression you’re using, but that “you should only convert video when it’s a critical moment, like when your audience wants to hear the music.
You shouldn’t make your videos a chore.”
If you’re on a budget, though, you can try a free trial to see if it’s worth it.
If it doesn’t work, just buy a Compressor for $14.99, but Loo cautions that if it does, you might have to use a third-party software like VLC or Reaper to convert it.
