./audio/lame, Fast, high quality MP3 encoder

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 3.99.5nb2, Package name: lame-3.99.5nb2, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Following the great history of GNU naming, LAME originally stood for
LAME Ain't an Mp3 Encoder. LAME started life as a GPL'd patch against
the dist10 ISO demonstration source, and thus was incapable of
producing an mp3 stream or even being compiled by itself. But in May
2000, the last remnants of the ISO source code were replaced, and now
LAME is the source code for a fully GPL'd MP3 encoder, with speed and
quality to rival all commercial competitors.

LAME is an educational tool to be used for learning about MP3
encoding. The goal of the LAME project is to use the open source model
to improve the psycho acoustics, noise shaping and speed of
MP3. Another goal of the LAME project is to use these improvements for
the basis of a patent free audio compression codec for the GNU

        Fix for tracker item [ 3441349 ] --tg does not handle genre number when \ 
adding unicode tag

LAME 3.99.2   November 18 2011

    Robert Hegemann
        Due to some bugs in 3rd party HW/SW decoders, those were not be able to \ 
make use of LAME's extended info tag anymore, resulting in problems with things \ 
like gapless playback.

LAME 3.99.1   November 5 2011

    Robert Hegemann
        Fixes for several issues with ID3v2 unicode tags, using Big-Endian text \ 
encodings. Because of several other software (like Windows Media Player), LAME \ 
writes Little-Endian unicode tags only.
        Thanks to Taihei Monma, for reporting these issues. Tracker items: [ \

from CVS.

        Fix: for free format mp3 above 320 kbps, the maximum allowed bits was \ 
limited too far.
        Changed behaviour: LAME replaces common suffixes by MP3/WAV when no \ 
output filename was given. For example, a simple lame x.wav will create output \ 
file x.mp3

LAME 3.98.4    March 22 2010

    Joseph Flynn
        Improvements for LAME DirectShow filter:
            Added support for the DirectShow IAMStreamConfig Interface to the \ 
LAME encoder filter output pin.
            Modified the DirectShow filter registration section so that the LAME \ 
Encoder filter is correctly registered in the Audio Compressors filter category. \ 
This will allow third-party encoding applications using the DirectShow System \ 
Device Enumerator Interface to correctly detect the LAME encoder when querying \ 
the Audio Compressors filter group.
            Modified the filter registration information so that the MP3 audio \ 
subtype is correctly reported as being supported on the encoder output pin. This \ 
will allow third-party encoding applications using the DirectShow IFilterMapper2 \ 
Interface to recognize that the LAME encoder supports MP3 output.
            Altered the Filter Merit Value that was being used when the filter \ 
was registered so that it is now using the standard DirectShow compressor filter \ 
merit value of MERIT_DO_NOT_USE (0x200000). Previously, the filter was being \ 
registered using a value of MERIT_SW_COMPRESSOR (0x100000), which was at a lower \ 
priority (i.e. worse priority) than MERIT_DO_NOT_USE. This prevented the LAME \ 
Encoder filter from being selected for use by some third-party encoding \ 
            Added code to calculate the frame length of the audio frames used \ 
for the nBlockSize element of the WAVEFORMATEX output structure. Previously this \ 
value was simply hard-coded to 1.

        Fix for Bugtracker item [ 2973877 ] A problem regarding the new drain code

LAME 3.98.3    February 27 2010

    Rogério Brito:
        Update the debian packaging for the new release.
    Robert Hegemann
        The ignore-tag-errors switch had no effect when embedding album art, fixed.
        Library API change: lame_decode functions are now obsolete but still \ 
present, please use hip_decode instead. The reason for this change is: \ 
lame_decode functions use a single global variable within the library to store \ 
decoder setup, hip_decode functions don't. The encoder now uses hip_decode \ 
internally and it is now possible to use clipdetect feature while reencoding mp3 \ 
to mp3.
        Workaround for FFMPEG bug, which uses to call lame_encode_flush more \ 
than once in a loop.
        Windows: program icon and version info added (when building with VC9)
        Fix for Bugtracker item [ 2688413 ] lib name problem in Microsoft Visual \ 
Studio 6
        Fix for Bugtracker items [ 2051870, 242365tracker item [ 2723518 ] \ 
resampling in 3.98 and 3.99alpha
        Fix for Bugtracker item [ 2891879 ] Because of Windows API change, there \ 
was a problem with the prority switch.
        Fix for Bugtracker item [ 2893101 ] Access Violation in BladeMP3EncDL0, \ 
ships with MS Windows): enabling the new-drain-code seems to solve that issue \ 
better, than restricting the buffer size (see below: 3.98 beta 1, May 16 2007).
