22050 hz is not optimal for a codec intended for 8000 (narrow band),
16000 (wide band) or 32000 (ultra wideband).
Depending on the quality needs for your specific implementation I would
pick one of the above modes and feed the codec 160, 320 or 640 samples
of the total stream each call to speex_encode. AFAIK the frame size is
hard coded for each speex encoder mode. The documentation should clear
this out for you.

I have raw PCM data that is 180 seconds long and sampled at 22050
samples per second. The data is 16-bit speech audio, male and female
My question is: What is a good frame size to use if I capture the
entire audio stream first and then want to compress it for later
I noticed that the example encoder code calls:
and I notice that this has the following memory allocation:
bits->bytes = (char*)speex_alloc(MAX_BYTES_PER_FRAME);
bits->buf_size = MAX_BYTES_PER_FRAME;
Somewhere else I noticed that MAX_BYTES_PER_FRAME is #defined to be
So I think the maximum practical value for a frame size is around 1000
samples although we could go higher if we could predict the
So what is a good practical value for FRAME_SIZE with my application
parameters? I need good compression and good performance. SInce these
are usually opposing goals, I'll settle for something in the middle
Thanks in advance. (BTW, Speex is a gem.)
