Installing LAME

Postby Fuzzy Chickens » Tue Nov 24, 2009 11:48 pm

We need a guide or a sticky or something. The .exe that comes in the .zip file isn't an installer, and Google is of little help for anyone who isn't using Audacity.

LAME has always been pretty straight forward when it comes to installing :roll:

Are you going to continue trolling, or do you want to actually provide some useful information?

The recent versions of LAME haven't been able to install IIRC. When you compress audio, you need to choose the .exe and it should compress it.

Go to Compression under Audio possibly?

Can I ask why you want to compress with VDub? It's easier to create an h264 .mp4 with Zarx, and audio saves space if exporting clips to edit with.

.mp4?

*shudders*

What ever happened to cross-compatibility?

Anyway, it doesn't matter anymore. I was digging through my deep archives and found an installer for a much older version of LAME.

Why not have the possibility anyway? I always like to make some .xvids of my files for quick previewing myself and I find having lamemp3 installed quite handy. Not to mention some poor ol' directors I know who would complain to me about sending my videos in weird formats..

Just download the AMVapp, lamemp3 is included and you can choose to install it individually if you don't want to install the entire AMVapp. Shouldn't give you any problems installing.

Whoa, the AMVapp is structured quite a bit differently now compared to the way it used to be. Thanks, this is exactly what I was looking for.

That lame.exe is a command-line program. It's perfectly usable if you're not afraid of the Command Prompt - I use it that way all the time. It can be accessed by different graphical frontends, but those don't come with it; other people make them.

Cross-compatibility? MP4 (H.264 and AAC, I'm assuming, rather than MPEG-4 ASP/XviD and MP3, despite those being perfectly acceptable in MP4) has been pretty standard no matter the operating system for the last 2 or 3 years.

Those iPods, PSPs, PS3s, Apple TVs, and the tube go a long way. Windows 7 supports it out of the box, OS X has Quicktime to support it (even if Quicktime's H.264 support is crippled), and Linux has anything ffmpeg-based (which Windows and OS X also have to varying degrees in their versions of VLC, mplayer, and ffmpeg itself; Windows also has ffdshow, which is predominantly the libavcodec core and just needs a separate splitter like Haali's or the ones in Media Player Classic/MPC-HomeCinema for MP4).

But how many PROGRAMS are capable of importing and editing .mp4 files?

Editing MP4's = :nono: Covert to losless,But only program that could "edit" them is Adobe Premiere with the help of the .avs plugin :O.
