i've never used sound/media related java solutions before. i need to chop an mp3 file into several smaller mp3 files. no gui is needed, i just need to create several small mp3 files of predefined time length or predefined size from a bigger source file. each of the newly created files should stay a valid mp3 file, since they will be played separately, as stand alone files.
is there any ready api from sun or third party libs that do this job?
