Help for Audacity 2.x.x on Mac OS X.

ImageThis forum is for Audacity 2.x.x on Mac OS X 10.4 and later.
Please state which version of macOS you are using,
and the exact three-section version number of Audacity from "Audacity menu > About Audacity".


Audacity 1.2.x and 1.3.x are obsolete and no longer supported. If you still have those versions, please upgrade at https://www.audacityteam.org/download/.
The old forums for those versions are now closed, but you can still read the archives of the 1.2.x and 1.3.x forums.

[I have downloaded the libmp3lame.dylib file at least ten times and tried everything for an hour. the closest I get is "This is an unrecognized format and can not be opened. " finding this frustrating. really like the program for some one who does not know a lot about audio files. Also if I contribute to this program is there a secure site to use? I don;t see the usual security symbols on the site to donate that I was on. I have a screen shot of the audacity folder in my applications folder and the message I end up with. Steve

You should double-click to launch "Lame Library v3.99.5 for Audacity.pkg" which will run a standard Mac installer. After that you should be able to open Audacity and it will automatically find the LAME library. If not, please see the instructions on this page, specifically step 6.

There's a way around that. Right-click or Control-Click the installer. One of the options is "Open it Anyway?"

I can't remember what I did last time to get around this.

Right-click on the PKG installer file. A context menu appears: the first item is "Open" - select it. A dialog opens warning you that the package is from an unidentified developer. Click the "Open" button. The installer should run.
