I just uploaded a song rendered directly from 32bit 44.1Khz wave file to LAME VBR(variable-bit-rate), and it streams flawlessly from our "Artist Section" player. Afro

The LAME codec has just recently discarded the last of the old source code from which it was originally developed, and the variable-bit-rate performance on MP3 playback software/hardware is spectacular. (this refers to versions 3.98 and newer)

I read about that too recently. Glad you put it up here so others could find out about it.

I wonder how many people knew that it is a recursive acronym?

LAME
Ain't
Mp3
Encoding

Which, apparently it technically isn't!

I have enormous respect for developers like these guys. They looked at a locked-down codec and worked out how to produce compatible audio files without infringing anyone's oh-so-important 'interlechul propertee'. Then not satisfied with that, they improved on it. They were way ahead of anyone else with VBR, indeed, some commercial encoders still can't do it.

Exactly. LAME is not MP3.

The challenge was to develop a new independent codec that will play on MP3 equipment. Then, because MP3 is not a native VBR codec, making LAME VBR(which is, by design, a variable-bit-rate codec) play back on MP3 players, was the real trick.
Essentially, making a superior software product function within an aging (no longer in active development) hardware/software environment.
Amazing, when you think of it... wOO

Actually, I think very few people are aware of the difference.
