I spent an hour reading this board before deciding to registering an account and posting this question. I am undergrad computer science student working on a project that will convert a MP3 to the OGG format using CUDA C. CUDA C is one of the languages that allows one to run programs on the NVidia GPU.

The project that was assigned to me was given a MP3 file, convert it to the OGG format. I never had to write an audio program before but my understanding since both the MP3 and OGG formats are lossy that it is not recommended to convert directly from MP3 to OGG. Anyways, the question I have is how should I start doing this assignment? I spent sometime looking online for algorithms to rewrite to run on the GPU but I couldn't come across any - I just found existing DLL files to use.

Thanks for any input given.

@dv1989:

thanks for clarifying this. I was in the majority that had this misconception.

@[JAZ]:

if this has any value, I really don't know how many man hours this will take me. I have roughly 3 months to do this.

And, to clarify, I am just studying computer science. The only experience I had with fourier transform was in my differential equation classes. Since taken those classes, I never had to use them.

@Ouroboros:

to [JAZ]'s point there can actually be some practical value of the project depending on what I'm able to pull off. There is a commercial application called "Badaboom" that claims to "create iPod and PSP video up to 20x faster" via http://badaboomit.com/. As you may have guess, it gets these performance by using the GPU. So, in other words, with my open source project a user can save "a lot" of time transcoding files.
