What is Audio Encoder

Audio Encoder is a computer program implementing an algorithm that compresses and decompresses digital audio data according to a given audio file format or streaming audio format. The object of the algorithm is to represent the high-fidelity audio signal with minimum number of bits while retaining the quality. This can effectively reduce the storage space and the bandwidth required for transmission of the stored audio file. Most Encoders are implemented as libraries which interface to one or more multimedia players.
