lame_enc.dll
The zipped archive of the Windows distribution contains a README that refers to an API file for info about the lame_enc.dll, but there is no API file in the archive. A quick search on Google found the Linux API many times, but no Windows.

Where can I get API info (and maybe a sample for use from within VB 6.0, if I may ask?)?

Thanks

Re: ./configure --with-vorbis troubles
This may come a bit too late, seeing the date of your post... I had this problem in RH8 w/ all the latest rpms. I simply deleted the missing #includes from libmp3lame/vorbis_interface.c and recompiled with success.

I'm with you ...

The only downside to VBR MP3s are that Winamp/XMMS don't accurately read the track lengths (or at least they didn't used to).

Now, if you want the best way ... Ogg/Vorbis VBR. Mmm-mmm, good.

Re: ./configure --with-vorbis troubles
this is not right either.

codec_internal.h is not in the current stable source tree of libvorbis

Use one of the pre-built executables, like
notlame:

Hi,
I have the same problem and I compiled libvorbis and libogg (both release 1.0) with configure (though with --prefix=/usr) and make and still those said files are nowhere to be found. I rechecked the Ogg-Vorbis page for the rpm packages (normal and devel) and both don't have those files. Is it possible that they are an older legacy that are no longer in the 1.0 release?

id3 tags
Could you make lame to first write id3 tag and than encode to mpeg file?

Because when encoding is interrupted, file seems to know nothing about id3 tags, and someone (like me) can feel it does not work.

Re: ./configure --with-vorbis troubles
Nevermind about my previous post. I have been able to repeat your problem exactly, thanks to your good error message listing.


Here's the deal. You mistakenly compiled the tarball version of libvorbis with the sequence:


./autogen.sh

make

This only works for the CVS version, not the tarball. What you have to do is the following.


In the libvorbis source directory:

make clean

./configure

make

make install


Then, in the lame directory:

make clean

./configure --with-vorbis

make

make install


This should fix it.

You need to install libvorbis from source:


oggvorbis Downloads (http://www.vorbis.com/download_unix.psp)


or if you have already installed libvorbis, maybe you should include its path: e.g.,


"--with-vorbis-prefix=/usr/local"

Lame - appropriate name
OK - first off this thing was a total pain in the ass to install.
Secondly, after spending literally days tracking down & installing the dependancies it needs, it doesn't work.
Creates bogus/empty mp3 files.
Use bladeenc instead - it actually works.
