Where does that blank come frome in "Lame 3.98.2" ?

@vpa:
You'll have to rename the directory you created. Make doesn't like paths containing blanks.

Thanks. It still doesn't work with gcc 3.3, but at least 4.0.1 compiles it now.

I have just been doing some testing with V0 --vbr-new on LAME 3.97 and found a track that was not transparent to me at that setting and almost also on 3.98.2.

The artifact at 0:06 is gone, but at 0:27 something sounds odd, which could be smearing.

I have uploaded a sample of the track.

I've compiled it long time ago on my G5 myself, but I just tried your universal binary: I get a bus error on my iMac G5  Maybe it's not realy "universal"?

"Universal" point to the fact that its both PPC and Intel code in the same binary.
Perhaps you don't run Mac OS 10.5, which is what I used to compile this...

Does anyone know why I cannot download lame_enc.dll from LAME's site and instead have to go to RareWares?

LAME 3.98 Final
Reply #156
Because the LAME site does not offer binaries at all due to patent restrictions (distributing sources does not require patent fees to be paid, distributing binaries does AFAIK).

Perhaps I am mistaken, but I think a few versions back that was possible.

What is the problem with gcc 3.3? At what point will the build process fail?

3.3 was labeled sometimes as a buggy version of gcc.
I have tried using version 3.4.5 in mingw (windows) and with it compiles just fine. Of course, it may be using different #define paths.

LAME 3.98.1    not yet released

    * Rogério Brito:
          o More fixes for the abx tool for Unix systems:
                + Plugged a memory leak.
                + Fixed an endianness problem: users of big-endian machines can now do abx tests.
          o Fixed history's HTML doctype
          o Fixed history so that it finally validates at W3's validator
          o Fixed compilation of frontend mp3rtp.c. Thanks to Kris Karas. Bugtracker item [ 2015432 ] mp3rtp missing uint16_t in lame 3.98

                      # --tg "Alt. Rock" matches genre "Alternate Rock"
                      # --tg "acapela" matches genre "A Cappella"

Well, I freshly depacked the source and now it also works with gcc3.3
Something must have been messed up that worse that even a make clean didn't fix it.

and 3.98.2 is somehow broken. It doesn't compile on OS X. Neither with gcc 3.3 nor with 4.0.1 :
Code: [Select]
(cd .libs/libmp3lame.lax/libmpgdecoder.a && ar x /Users/frankseyen/Desktop/Lame 3.98.2/lame-398-2/libmp3lame/../mpglib/.libs/libmpgdecoder.a)
ar: /Users/frankseyen/Desktop/Lame: Inappropriate file type or format
make[3]: *** [libmp3lame.la] Error 1



I am having one hell of a time trying to figure out how to make the new Lame release work with EAC as it has no .exe file in the zip download! All the code stuff is so far over my head.  I need  simple answer as to how to get high rate VBR working with the new LAME release! (A command line code would be great once it is working!)
I realize there are many different command codes ( I have seen far too many!  ) but don't know how to decide on what is best for a highest rate VBR encode in EAC.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Get the latest LAME bundle  here (3.98.2)
Then, follow the wiki for EAC + LAME
Forget about  --vbr-new  since it's by default in 3.98.2
--> -V0 %s %d
V0 is the best quality VBR setting

BUT:

Since the recent release of lame 3.98.2, I've read a lot of forum posts. Most of people who used V2 by the past now prefer V3 and even lower because of the constant development and improvement of the codec.

I'm 23, have a pretty good hearing and use V5.5 for portable. You'd be surprised the amazing quality you'll get.

My experience with embedding album art:

foobar2000 shows it. My hardware player doesn't.

If i embed an albumart from the same source file with mp3tag, both f2k and my hardware player show it.

What i found out: Mp3tag embeds the albumart as "front cover", but an albumart embedded with the lame encoder is called "other".

Is there a way to tell the encoder to embed the albumart as "front cover"? Or would you call it worth a change for one of the next versions?

If you are using a PowerPC Mac, then try Lame for OSX PPC
It contains a gcc 3.3 compile, a gcc 4.01 compile and a fresh cvs checkout (3.99 a1) compiled with gcc 4.01. I hope it's helpfull for you.

Just out of curiosity, why hasn't LAME v3.98.2 become the recommended version here at HA? Just about every music group (on "the scene") uses 3.97, prolly 'cuz it's HA-recommended. Me myself, I'm trying to figure out if there are any known disadvantages on 3.98 apart from 3.97? Known stability bugs? Compatibility bugs?? Anything(!) that would have you prefer 3.97 > 3.98.2? I've done lots of research, trying to fetch this answer someplace else, but there's not much to go on. And since I'm no audio pro, I'm kinda lost in a maze here..

Thankfor for all answers~

Maybe I am blind, but the wiki recommends the latest stable version, and the same page states that the latest stable version is 3.98. not 3.98.2. I just fixed this in the wiki.
