Lame doesnt show up in the Export-options in Quicktime Player (Pro) 7.1.5, OS X 10.4.9.
Even after restart.

The Quicktime LAME MP3 codec referred to in the response to the previous (months ago) message seems to have been discontinued and pulled from the internet. Are there any other Quicktime plugins/applications that utilize this framework?

You can use it together with the "LAME Quicktime MP3 Encoder Component" (there is another site which doesnt seem to be up to date, though) to export to LAME-encoded mp3's right out of Quicktime Player. Pretty nifty.

Place LAME.framework in ~/Library/Frameworks/ (or in /Library/Frameworks/ for all users; create the folder, if it doesnt yet exist), place LAMEEncoder.component in ~/Library/Quicktime/ (or in /Library/Quicktime/ for all users; again, create it, if it doesnt yet exist), and you're done. Re-open Quicktime Player and check your Export-options.
(NB.: Why there is no entry for LAME Quicktime MP3 Encoder Component on Macupdate.com??)

But there is also Max.

LAME is regarded to provide a much higher encoding quality (especially with the option "insane" ;) than, for instance, iTunes, Quicktime (see also mp3dev.org).


I can't find "LAMEEncoder.component" :(
