Hi I went through the instructions to install LAME on Win10, something is wrong, I download the executable Lame_v3.99.3_for_Windows and ran it and it creates 5 files in x86 directory, “LAME FOR AUDACITY” including one called LAME.EXE ?? what is this? no DLL FILE AVFORMAT-55.DLL FILES WAS CREATED, clicking on lame.exe does nothing why are the libraries NOT installing?
LAME is now built-into Audacity so you don’t need to install it.
FILE AVFORMAT-55.DLL FILES WAS CREATED
That’s not LAME, that’s FFmpeg (which is an optional install).
LAME is used only for exporting as MP3.
FFmpeg is used for importing/exporting many other formats.
****My fault I was not paying attention here to correct installer. Installed it now exporting mp3 works good.
