Fakes mp3 re-encoded

Can I know if a mp3 has been "transcode" (I mean re-encode)?

For example, I download a mp3 at 256 kbps, but it seems to play like a 128 kbps mp3...

Does exist a manner (software or other) to discover these fakes?

Thanks in advance.

Please search before asking questions that have already been asked before.

Anyhow, I know of an easy way to make sure your mp3s aren't transcoded from lossy sources.
Is 24-bit/192kHz good enough for your lo-fi vinyl, or do you need 32/384?

Oh, excuse me. I tried to search this, but I did not know the terms to find.
Thanks!

Plain English is often the best way, but think nothing of it.

I'm interested in how to tell transcoded MP3s as well, but the search option you gave, for the first 2 results, it hasn't been solved yet. It seems that you need to read the source in the Lame tag, but there isn't a way to read it. 

BTW, In Encspot, what does the "original" checkbox mean? Does it mean if it's ticked, it is not transcoded?

"Original" is just a flag in the data that the encoder can either set or not set. As far as I know it is not used consistently by encoders and is therefore useless.
