How can I set the quality or bitrate of the automatic MP3 conversion ?

Asked by tankdriver on 2011-08-18

I have a mp3 player with the following .is_audio_player :

audio_folders=Music/
folder_depth=2
output_formats=audio/mp3, audio/mpeg

When I put music in flac format to the player it will be automatically converted to mp3 format. (*great feature*)
How can I set the quality? It seems to be 128kbps, which is too low for me.

Try soundjuicer

I found a solution I can live with:

Edit the file "/usr/share/banshee/audio-profiles/mp3-lame.xml"
look for the line" <default-value>128</default-value>" (at the bottom area)
and change the value from 128 to your favourite bitrate.
