Is there any software that will encode a wav filet to an mp3 by right clicking on the file in Windows Explorer? Preferably using the LAME encoder.

Add your LAME command line to the Windows registry.

(1) Find: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.wav and locate the (Default) value. Let's assume it is $SomeKey$.

(2) Now go to: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\$SomeKey$\shell\

Create a new subkey called whatever you like (here "LAME-test"). Select the new subkey and under (Default) enter the text that will appear in your right-click menu ("• My LAME Command"). Now create a key called "command" one level deeper.

(3) There under another (Default) value enter the actual LAME command.
For example, lame.exe -V 2 -h "%L"

Tried this, didn't get it to work - nothing appeared in the context menu. (Did manage to succeed with the advice on creating a context menu for encoding of whole folder here

Using windows 7. My $SomeKey$ was WMP11.AssocFile.WAV. Located that, went to the shell subkey, created "encode v0 mp3", inside which created "command", and changed the default value to "C:\Program Files (x86)\lame\lame.exe" -V0 "%L" - to no avail.

What to do?
