I have an audio file, of which I calculate 16 (actually 15 because I omit the first one) MFCCs in R. When I stream this file via VLC-Player and Icecast2-Server, receive it in Java (with the Player of Javazoom-Lib) and then pass it on to R again for MFCC calculation I get completely different values? Has anyone an idea why this could be?
- When I write the received data to a file again and view it next to the original file they look almost the same (Waveform + Spectrogram).
- The file has a length of 3 seconds and contains the sound of a passing vehicle (car).
- MFCCs are calculated for centered 44100 samples.
- I need valid data in order to automatically classify cars and trucks with a SVM. This classifier is trained with features calculated from 150 audio files (each containing one vehicle).
- Since R had problems with reading and processing mp3-files directly I first converted wav to mp3 and back again (in order to "simulate" the loss of information due to compression).
Furthermore, I automatically detect the vehicles in a continuous audio stream and therefore (for the particular example data above) the waveforms for calculating the MFCCs have an offset of about 4400 Samples. Does this matter with an analysis window of 44100 samples?
