No.

lame ain’t mp3 encoder = l.a.m.e. right?
well, why they say it isn’t a mp3 encoder?

because lame is the codec, and proggies such as winlame, besweet or headache are THE encoder…i guess :confused:

someone with better knowledge in audio should confirm this. or even better - maybe this should be moved to the audio forum?

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.
