Hi, Vipin,

    What you're going to want to do here is convert your 8-bit stereo 
samples into 16-bit mono samples and back again when you're done(*).  
What you are actually doing here, it sounds like, is feeding 2 8-bit 
mono samples into Jspeex, which expects 16-bit mono.  So, the 
most-significant-byte is in the right channel, and more or less gets 
encoded/decoded properly, but the least-significant byte just looks like 

(*) There's other options -- you could encode stereo if you wanted to, 
but it won't be simple, because JSpeex probably doesn't support that, 
and with 8-bit resolution, there's probably nothing interesting.    A 
better idea would be to try to get 16-bit samples instead of 8-bit
