I am looking for an algorithm written in c++ for a project that I have in school that I need to optimize. The prof said the project was supposed to be in multimedia, and I thought mp3 encoding would be good, but would settle for anything at this point. I was wondering if anybody had a link or some code that would satisfy this criteria. It doesn't have to be great, I need to assemble it into MIPS and then optimize and find problems, so actually something worse than normal would be awesome! Appreciate any help in advance.
