Your information was very interesting to me. It seems that I was incorrect. Thank you for posting this information. In my work, we do it differently, but that is really irrelevant. I appreciate you posting WHY I was wrong - you (Snathanb) understand the points being made on both sides, and responded accordingly.I think, perhaps, you need to do some reading. You seem to be confusing the encoding rate with the decoding rate.
Cheers. I may owe you a donut.
