I’m posting this question I knew the answer years ago. It’s a bet … My friend says that if you record 1 minute of silence, the filesize (let’s say we encode it to MP3 at 192 kbps, to make it more interesting) will be 0. I said that the filesize depends on the lenght of the track, wheter there’s a waveform or not. That’s why 1 minute of silence will be taking app. 1440 KB. True?
If the second statement is correct, tell me if the filesize only depends on the lenght of the track (and small part for header)?
