That would work.

Yes it remains *recognizable* at ridiculously low bitrate, which is what
you need to send postage-stamp video over a POTS modem. Unfortunately,
it doesn't get much better if you throw more bits at it. So at broadband
bitrates it sounds terrible compared to real or windowsmedia.

No idea. It does sounds miles better at 32 kbps. I'd not heard of anyone
squeezing it down to 8.
