[vox-tech] variable bit rate on mp3

  • Subject: [vox-tech] variable bit rate on mp3

i've had 2 conversations in the past 6 months about variable bit-rate encoding,
and heard there's no open source VBR encoding on linux.

i was looking at lame (it doesn't come with a man page, but it has a
--longhelp option):

VBR options:
  -v              use variable bitrate (VBR)
  --vbr-old       use old variable bitrate (VBR) routine
  --vbr-new       use new variable bitrate (VBR) routine
  -V n            quality setting for VBR.  default n=4
                  0=high quality,bigger files. 9=smaller files
  -b <bitrate>    specify minimum allowed bitrate, default 32kbs
  -B <bitrate>    specify maximum allowed bitrate, default 256kbs
  -F              strictly enforce the -b option, for use with players that
                  do not support low bitrate mp3 (Apex AD600-A DVD/mp3 player)
  -t              disable writing Xing VBR informational tag
  --nohist        disable VBR histogram display

i'm going to try it now...
