Hi Randy, thanks for the reply.
So, suppose I encode an audio buffer (8000 kHz, MONO, float) of 640 PCM
In output I have 4 speex frame of 20 byte each that I put in a RPT
payload of 80 bytes:

UINT CSpeexCodec::Encode( float *inBuff,
                          const char**outBuff,
                          UINT BufferFrames )

  while (BufferFrames>0)
    speex_encode(spx_state_, inBuff, &spx_bits_);
    nbBytes += speex_bits_write(&spx_bits_,
    inBuff+= spx_frame_size_;
    BufferFrames -= spx_frame_size_;

  ..nbBytes is 80 bytes..

Now I send this packet over the network and, into the receiving side, I
need to recreate the original PCM buffer (640 frames).
But how can I know the size of each speex frame into a multiframe payload?
