I just tried "split" on an Ogg Theora file:
split -b 5m a_new_computer.ogg splitoggs
It produced splitoggsaa and splitoggsab . "splitoggsaa" plays, but
"splitoggsab" doesn't - presumably because it has no identifying headers
to tell vlc what the heck it is :)
cat splitoggsaa splitoggsab > test.ogg
Heals the rift and test.ogg plays fine...
Conclusion: unless your "users" have "cat", the bits won't play - except
the first one...
I couldn't fing "mp3split" in the repositories, but it sounds like what
you need. Of course, as others have said, audacity should do the job too...
