Part III of AVS(China Audio and Video Coding Standard) is the first standard for Hi-Fi audio proposed in China and is becoming more popular in some IT industries. For MP3 audio, some efforts have been made to solve the problems such as copyright pirating and malicious modifications by the way of watermarking. But till now little efforts have been made to solve the same problems for AVS audio. In this paper, we present a novel robust watermarking algorithm which can protect the AVS audio from the above problems. The watermark is embedded into the AVS compressed bit stream. At the extracting end, the watermark bits can be extracted from the compressed bit stream directly without any computation. This algorithm achieves robustness to decoding/recoding attacks, and low complexity of both embedding and extracting while preserves the quality of the audio signals.
