Single embedding from single wav file for wav2vec models?

I am not sure if here is the right channel to ask.

I am new to wav2vec models and aware that wav2vec usually acts as a “frontend” model so we gotta have embeddings or features from them. I used the script below to produce embeddings for future use. The output from a single wav file is [1, 212, 1024] for hidden states and [1, 212, 512] for features.

If I wanna have a single one-dimensional embedding (in either 1024 or 512 dim), would simple averaging be a valid solution?

  o = model(i.input_values)
