It uses the LAME MP3 Encoder library for encoding and the MAD library for decoding.
The file formats supported by winLAME are WAV, OGG, WMA, MPG, M3U, CUE, COV and many others.
Working with winLAME is fast and simple as the program supports batch processing and it allows you to preview songs using a built-in music player.
winLAME provides several output modules you can select from, such as the LAME MP3 Encoder
, the Opus Encoder
. the OGG Vorbis Encoder, the Wave Output and the Windows Media Audio Encoder.
Of course, you can select the desired output folder and you can determine winLAME to delete the original tracks when encoding is completed, to overwrite existing files and to perform several tasks after finishing encoding.
Other assets of winLAME are the small size, the detailed HTML help file, the easy install and uninstall process (winLAME is in fact portable) and the modular, multi-channel architecture.
No encoder is complete without sound quality settings and winLAME is no exception from the rule. You can adjust encoding quality settings such as bitrate and quality level.
