For my project, I am looking for a way to take headphone audio signals (from TVs and other appliances), convert them into MP3 and send them over WiFi to a remote device (PC or other) using Arduino UNO and a Wifi Shield.

Any ideas as to a circuit design and required components that would achieve it?

Thanks!

You can use a VS1063 to do on-the-fly conversion of audio to MP3. VLSI offer an eval board that you can hook up to a microcontroller, or even a toyduino, to configure and stream from the VS1063. The pro kit includes all the audio circuitry and connectors.

I would suggest using a different platform, such as a beagle bone or raspberry pi. An Arduino is not going to be powerful enough.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Thank you all for your replies and insights. Is there a specific Arduino shield that I can use to convert the audio to MP3 to remove the load from the Arduino? I would then use a WiFi shield to send it over to the other end... Would that work? \$\endgroup\$
