Getting LAME to work.


I always wondered why QT couldn't do a MP3 as a Export option so today I looked online to see if I could find something to add that feature. I found this thingy called LAME. Now, when I got it downloaded I read the instructions and this is what they said.

To install, copy the resulting LAMEEncoder.component folder to one of the following locations:


As with the LAME framework, so with this...if you want anyone other than yourself to be able to use this, you must install it to /Library/QuickTime.

After following those simple enough steps, I opened QT and tried the export but the MP3 option wasn't there. Even after a restart of the computer. So I gotta ask, what am I doing wrong that doesn't make this thing apart of QT?
Go back to the versiontracker LAME link you posted above. Click on "Developers site" and download the LAME Framework. Place this in /Library/Frameworks. Restart quicktime and it should work fine.
