Hi all,
I tried to encode using lame with the recomended switch:
"
ID3v2:
-V 2 --vbr-new --id3v2-only --pad-id3v2 --ta "%a" --tt "%t" --tl "%g" --ty "%y" --tn "%n" %s %d
"
but since I have a Frontierlabs Nex IIe player, it makes a loud noise in the beginning if a mp3 file start with 32kbps. So I tried adding in "-b 40" in the beggining, in the middle and in the end (at different occassion) of the above switch but it didn't work.
I know in the Full command line switch reference says that "When used with variable bitrate encoding (VBR), -b specifies the minimum bitrate to be used. However, in order to avoid wasted space, the smallest frame size available will be used during silences." Maybe that is the reason why the "-b 40" always fail.
So, is there a way to force the "-b 40" to work with the above switch?

Thanks in advance,
Bb

Add the -F switch also. This will "strictly enforce the -b option".

NB: I believe -b needs to go after to -V2 to stop it being overridden. I'm not sure about this though.

Edit: Ouch! Way too slow. I must stop queuing up threads in Firefox tabs...
