any FREE program that will do it?
i tried it, didn't seem to work.if you could have a look at these screen shots and give me a few extra hints i'd be grateful
You're saying that it would not spawn an encoder instance for every file "sent to"?
What about encoders that expect input files not as the last parameters? Such as, -if "%L" -of "%L.ext" scheme. NAACENC complains if "-of" is not specified. Btw, I could not make new items appear in Send To. This method is of little use if it requires logoff or reboot.
Do you need to restart Explorer, or Log Off for the newly added items to appear?
Is there any software that will encode a wav filet to an mp3 by right clicking on the file in Windows Explorer? Preferably using the LAME encoder.
Add your LAME command line to the Windows registry.(1) Find: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.wav and locate the (Default) value. Let's assume it is $SomeKey$.(2) Now go to: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\$SomeKey$\shell\Create a new subkey called whatever you like (here "LAME-test"). Select the new subkey and under (Default) enter the text that will appear in your right-click menu ("• My LAME Command"). Now create a key called "command" one level deeper.(3) There under another (Default) value enter the actual LAME command.For example, lame.exe -V 2 -h "%L"
Tried this, didn't get it to work - nothing appeared in the context menu.
