When converting an mp3 file with max frame size of 112kbps, to CBR, mp3packer will nevertheless convert the file to 128kbps instead of 112kbps. It even works with files that start out as 112kbps CBR: if I process them to VBR, and then back to CBR, the resulting CBR file is 128kbps. It seems that 112kbps is "skipped over" amongst CBR options; I haven't noticed this happening for any other mp3 bitrate.This happens with older versions of mp3packer, and also with 2.04.
isn't mp3packer abandoned software?
may be open source but buggy as hell. it needs massive cleaning up in order to build. especially on linux. actually i think it was written with mingw in mind.
as compiled it's probably fine. but if i try to build it i get wrong results.
