streaming mp3 skip silence

Is there a flash or other streaming mp3 player, which will autodetect and skip blocks of silence?

I have many mp3s that I stream on my website, which start with a couple secs of silence that I want to trim. Alternatively, if there is a *nix program that does this via the command line (e.g. batch processing).

mp3cut looked promising, but won't trim silence in batch mode. :-(

thx

Hello and Welcome to WebmasterWorld!

I do not know of any flash tools that solve this issue however there is one app you can write a shell script with to do this. Try a search at [freshmeat.net...] for EcaSound [freshmeat.net].

thanks for the warm welcome eelix.

I once tried using ecasound, but as I recall that program only trims silence on wav files. I didn't look into it very thoroughly, but I assumed making a conversion to wav and then back to mp3 would result in a loss of quality?

Not too familiar with it but from what I've seen you should be able to edit any audio type that the app handles. Do a G search for ecasound silence and a few articles should come up that should help you.
