The ability to transcode audio (mp3/wav/etc.) according to TIME is not yet available -- i.e. "clip"/"trim" an mp3 to a 30-second preview sample, say.
Apparently they are working on it, but until available, we developers need to use hacked solutions sometimes!
Has anyone found a reliable way to do this using the current API? There is a trimming-by-frames option, but it doesn't work well with VBR. Perhaps there is a mathematical function to relate frames to time (in seconds/milliseconds)?
Any help appreciated,
