I noticed while rereading the AD1846 datasheet last night that the
1846's 16-bit linear mode is signed, while its 8-bit linear mode is
unsigned. All of the other codecs are probably the same way.
So we add
#define AUDIO_ENCODING_ULINEAR 4
to fill up that unsightly hole between AUDIO_ENCODING_LINEAR (3) and
That reminds me. There are multiple ADPCM formats out there, which
does AUDIO_ENCODING_ADPCM represent? IMA, G.722 (not sure about that
#), Creative Labs? A bit academic because no one uses it yet.
