They are great patches (thanks Enzo). I did not spot any issues with the encodes. I did not train my ears for artifacts (deliberately) and I enjoy quality 3. Amazing that ~100 kbps produces quality which feels like transparent. Obviously this could not be the case without Aoyumi's tireless efforts.
Hello Isayama,

Great that few of us still enjoy this good mature format.

I have not looked into this in detail, but I have the old working version. The difference between old and new is this

Enzo made the change for a guy who wanted to compile with 
Code: [Select]
--disable-shared --enable-static
parameters and for that we need this change. See Enzo's Edit3. Sounds like no-one tested that it does not work with original settings. Better would have been to version the patches.

Having said that if you patch the patch backward using this diff it should be good.

Having said that I am not sure... maybe even your current compile is just as good.

MP3 - General / Re: Lame 3.100 has been released

Every time I want to get sources for lame, I have to navigate through these damn horrible sourceforge pages.
It get's me every friggin time! Finding the correct link or page where the actual code is at for me to download, etc. jeebus.

Maybe I'm just spoiled, but navigating github and gitlab is just so much easier and loads more pleasant, than that horribleness.

Kids: if you want the latest development tree for LAME:

Finding the release source is much easier, though. Still, that friggin website...

It it still working  with JScript Panel v.1.3.0
Same version here. Something else was wrong with my config, because another JScript panel crashes too (YouTube Track Manager).

Found the relevant log info:
Code: [Select]
JScript Panel: This component requires your system has IE9 or later installed.

So the solution is to install Internet Explorer 9 or later.
First, let us get this clear:
some files crepitate (not sure if that's the right English word).
Make a crackling sound - you mean they sound distorted? That could be a sign that they need further reduction?

Try to ReplayGain-scan your files after having applied MP3Gain - say, in foobar2000; are peaks above 1?
Yeah... MP3Gain changes the actual volume in the file, so the CD/MP3 player doesn't have to "recognize" anything.

If you are not satisfied with MP3Gain, you might try adjusting the volumes "manually" by ear with MP3DirectCut.    That will take some time and you'll have to choose a standard reference track.  You might want to only  adjust the ones that need it after  applying MP3Gain.  And, a few songs will always be a little too-quiet unless you push the peaks into clipping.

Oh...  It's usually best to leave the default MP3Gain volume of 89dB.  If you increase the MP3 target volume and you don't allow clipping, you are not leaving MP3Gain enough "room to work" and fewer songs will be adjusted.    Even with the default, some  songs can't be adjusted-up without clipping (or can't be adjusted enough  to hit 89dB).
For example, with foobar2000, the option is hidden (apply gain to files) by default

... Shift, right-click, ReplayGain and then Apply. Then choose album or track mode. (Album, of course ;-) )

Sorry for the absence of compiles on Rarewares, but I have been away from home for the last 2 weeks and I don't return until the end of this week. I will post compiles as soon as I'm able. :)

Thanks John! Can you update the libmp3lame (x86 and x64) compiles too? I might be the only one using them, but I do use them!
