Hi all, Just wondering what you all use for making MP3 files. I'd rather use .ogg ,( natch -) but Myspace requires MP3s. Just wondering what you all use for making mp3s>? I was using lame and glame under Apodio. I seem not to have needed libs instaled. I've looked and not found them. What should I do? thanx- dav=-0

Go ahead!

I have for instance installed all the "special" codecs from Marilat's site - look for the gstreamer good-bad and ugly codecs. Load them and 64S can play ANYTHING... See the tutor page on cinelerra as reference... Cheers,

So- I have to use etch repos- I am (afaik ) running a strictly 'stable' system. I'm okay to just ad the above deb sources to my list? i'm pretty sure but...

Hi Nicola, 64studio Testing is still based off Etch, and not Lenny. This just reinforces my point that we should call the 64studio "testing" repository "tryout" to remove confusion. Thus, even is you are running 2.1 pre7 please use etch repositories, otherwise you'll end up with a mixed up(and unmaintainable) mess. Cheers

Hi dav=0 For burning mp3 you need the lame package, you can add those repositories to your /etc/apt/sources.list: deb etch main deb-src etch main Then you have to install the key in this way: # wget # su -c 'dpkg -i debian-multimedia-keyring_2007.02.14_all.deb && aptitude update' Now you can install lame by synaptic or whatever you want! P.S.If you are using the testing version of 64studio change etch with lenny. See for more info. Nicola

Lame works w/Audacity

dav=-0 check out the Audacity menus. Look under Edit-->Preferences-->File Formats-->MP3 Export Setup. If you have Lame installed, you can export MP3's from Audacity. Likewise, Toolame and Twolame are supposed to be equivilants for Lame. Mine shows up in /usr/local/lib/ but your mileage (or your paths) may vary.

No. The Libs needed are patented, so Free cannot include them into 64studio without the 64studio company being liable for licencing - for all of us! If you get it yourself from Debian, the 64' guys are safe...

I seem to NOT have the required libs installed - Have run synaptic to find the correct libs and i don't see them. I'm running the 64 bit kernel. Is this why? thanx dav=-0

I use Audacity when I need to export to mp3 from a .wav file. By the way, does anyone know if jamendo accepts .ogg files?

Yes, Jamendo accepts .ogg
