#481 closed defect (fixed)

Audio transcoding easily hogs up much space on /tmp

This is probably due to the spectrogram processing uses a WAV as input file, thus I made it transcode the audio into WAV (which takes quite a lot of space).

A possible solution would be to investigate the possibilities to create spectrograms from either the source format or the "medium" audio/webm format.

Pushed fix in 549000d9911938b88328e15196ff6b3b00fff740.

The source for the spectrogram will still be a separate file from the "medium" file, as scikits.audiolab.Sndfile does not accept WebM/Vorbis. The source file for the spectrogram is now an OGG/Vorbis file.
