I know this is probably a redundant issue with this program and add on. I have read many post on this forum on how to fix the issue, and have watched several youtube videos. Anyhow, the problem: Just downloaded Audacity 2.4.2 and Lame 3.99.3 on Windows 10 x64. (Please excuse if i’ve written any of the versions down wrong, I’m not exactly computer savvy and could be the issue.)
I’ve downloaded everything according to the instructions and the program, and myself are unable to find the library. When I click the locate button, after installation of the add-on, it still ask for “avformat-55.dll”.
No idea what to do next–
Again, sorry for the redundancy.
I recorded and exported an M4A file from my iPhone 12, then dragged and dropped it into Audacity 2.4.2 (on Windows 10) and got the attached error message. I then navigated to https://lame.buanzo.org/#lamewindl and downloaded the zip file, unzipped it and moved the only file in the zip (called lame_enc.dll) to the Audacity plug-ins folder, exited Audacity and then re-started it.
I went to Preferences - Libraries and clicked on the Locate button next to “FFmpeg Library:”, navigated to the file lame_enc.dll, and clicked open, then OK and Audacity didn’t do anything notable. It still said "FFmpeg Library Version: FFmpeg library not found.
I have tried renaming the dll etc etc but nothing seems to work.
Thanks to to you all. I had indeed mistakenly downloaded the lame zip instead of the FFmpeg zip file. Once I had downloaded the correct one and pointed Audacity at it, bingo, my recording works perfectly.
Hi, Now I am struggling with this old problem mp4 Import does not work.
I Installed Audacity 3.0.2 on a brand new WIN10 PC >> Worked fine
Installed avformat-55.dll at C:\Users\Raine\AppData\Roaming\audacity\Plug-Ins\ and used “Find …” >> did not work
Alternatively tried lame_enc.dll >> also did not work
