Can not choose between different MP3 encoder settings

Asked by UlfZibis on 2018-01-30

I have created 3 additional MP3 LAME encoder settings for CD ripping.

When I want to select one of them, I only see the last added setting in the listing, but 4 times. Regardless which of them I choose, the ripping is always processed with the same last added settings.

Here the concerning settings in ~/.kde/share/config/k3brc

Just a guess:

Try renaming the settings in a way that their names differ in the first word, e.g.

MP3V3 155…195 kbps
MP3V4 145…185 kbps
MP3V5 110…150 kbps
Mp3(Lame)

Maybe there is a weakness in the program that it does not correctly use the complete name, but only the part until the first white space.

Can you help with this problem?
