How do I install the LAME encoder??

Post by bunker99 »

I've just upgraded to the 2.5.2 version and am now getting an error message telling me MP3 Encoding is limited to 30 days and I cannot rip CD's. I've seen posts here that advise installing LAME to get around this problem, but have no idea how to do it? Can someone help me with this please?

Thanks in Advance. :-) :-?

Hi Bunker,
first download the Lame-Codec from here: http://www.pctipp.ch/downloads/dl/29658.asp
Then extract the files into the mediamonkey-filder and overwrite the old ones. Then it should work! :)

There's also another solution possible: Buy the Gold version, and it will work fine without any problem! :wink:

You will need to download the Lame Encoder and extract lame_enc.dll to the Program Files/MediaMonkey folder.
