This is an AMBE vocoder plugin based on mbelib and the OP25 AMBE encoder. The makefiles create a shared object for various platforms that can be loaded via dlopen() (LoadLibrary on Windows).
All platforms require imbe_vocoder library be built and available for the platform being built. The default Makefile is for a Linux PC. MacOS can also use this file, just comment out the linux line and use the darwin line. The Makefile.win for windows requires a static mingw32 compiler.
There are currently builds available for the following platforms:
- Linux 64bit x86 platform: vocoder_plugin.linux.x86_64
- Linux 32bit ARM platform (RaspiOS/Raspbian/etc): vocoder_plugin.linux.arm
- MacOS 64bit x86 platform: vocoder_plugin.darwin.x86_64
- Windows 64bit x86 platform: vocoder_plugin.winnt.x86_64
- Android 32-bit ARM: vocoder_plugin.android.arm
- Android 64-bit ARM: vocoder_plugin.android.arm64
Even though most RPis are arm64 architecture, the mainstream OS's are still 32 bit.

Loading a plugin on Linux/MacOS/Windows
You can place the correct plugin in your ~/Downloads folder and DroidStar will copy it to the config directory where settings and host files are located. Once it has been copied, you can remove it from the Downloads folder. If you leave it in the Downloads folder, it will be re-copied every time you start DroidStar. You can also use the URL download option, but if a vocoder exists in the Download location, it will always overwrite the working copy
