I have a 7-hour wav file (recording of rain sounds), and I'd like to burn a CD from it.

How can I burn as much as it as will fit onto a standard audio cd so that it will play continuously for the 50mins or so that a CD usually plays for on my ancient CD player?

I'd prefer to be able to do this from the command line.


Use ffmpeg

ffmpeg -ss 00:00:00 -t 01:00:00 -i your.wav -acodec copy short.wav

Adjust the time ( -t ) until the file is about 700 Mb
