- Digital Theater System, using Valib decoder [built-in]
- Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC)
- Microsoft ADPCM
- Monkey's Audio (APE)
- MPEG Audio-Layer I (MP1), using mpg123 decoder [built-in]
- MPEG Audio-Layer II (MP2), using mpg123 decoder [built-in]
- MPEG Audio-Layer III (MP3), using mpg123 decoder [built-in]
- Musepack
- Opus Audio Codec

- Shorten
- Speex
- Sun/NeXT Au
- The True Audio (TTA)
- Uncompressed PCM / Waveform Audio File (WAV/RIFF)

Key Features of LameXP 4.0:

- Complete re-write of LameXP in C++ using the Qt Framework.
- Switching from dated Delphi IDE (version from 2002) to an up-to-date tool chain (VS2008 or GCC 4.5.x).
- Full Unicode support, which means that all problems with "Codepages" and "strange characters" will finally be gone!
- Support for multiple platforms (Windows, Linux, MacOS X) will be possible.
- Creating new LameXP translations will be much easier for contributors thanks to the Qt Linguist tool.
 Note: This is an early technology preview that doesn't do much yet, but you can test the Unicode support already.

Great Program, but... i think this program should be renamed to something other,
LameXP sounds really so pooooooooooor.

Great to see that the new version has added support for the Opus audio codec. I think Opus is a very promising format (it sounds great already) and it will replace MP3/AAC/Vorbis in the near future.

Decent program, been using this one since v3.0. I sometimes prefer EAC+Lame: displays a DOS window that shows how the (VBR) encoding is being distributed over the various bitrates.

If you're not interested in that kind of information, LameXP works perfectly fine: with individual progress bars.
