didn't get the chance to read whole thing yet, but i think doom9 might not like that you linking directly to files on his server...perhaps local copy or link to his software page would be better?

*update* ok i just read your guide and i have a comment about audio encoding. like somebody else point out, using intermediate wave might be a bit inefficient, also your LAME command line is far from optimal.
you should defenatly consider using --alt-preset or at least --r3mix.
those few megs that you saved using 128kbit will not make that much of a difference in video quality...especialy when you go for 2 cd rip, but your sound experience will so much better.

i'm sure that's true. nobody would like that, don't you think so?
you definitely have to change this as soon as possible! either just link to doom9's main page (doom9.org) or host the files yourself.

yo mixxcon

i use the command LAME -q 0 -b 128 -d moviename.wav moviename.mp3 for my LAME mp3 conversion, you said alt and r3mix, could you please give me the command line that i should use? and what does alt and r3mix do?
thanks mate.

I will also put a note that these files are all from www.doom9.net under the links

presets are basicaly shortcuts to command lines.
in --alt-preset case it goes even deeper and it actualy partialy changes the way codec work.

--r3mix info you can get from www.r3mix.net
--alt-preset info you can get from www.hydrogenaudio.org
or from docs w/ LAME 3.90 and from http://lame.sourceforge.net/history.html

also mention that it's DivX4 guide
and kill that fadeing :)

what's easier: lame --alt-preset standard or -q 0 -b 128 -d?
it's your guide, you deside.
