    If you do, what is the point of this software, it looks like it does the same thing as iTunes anyway, anyone care to clarify?

    I downloaded it once but couldn't get it to work which I suspect had more to do with me... or possibly my version of iTunes.

    It is supposed to offer higher-quality encoding of mp3s than the vanilla iTunes encoder. Some people swear by it, others remain unconvinced...

    I would like to hear WinterMute's opinion on this...

    Apparently uses LAME open source technology
    lame.sourceforge.net

    From the info on the web site...

    From one of the "reviews" of iTunes-LAME

    I know it said it would convert the "unprotected" :rolleyes: but didn't find info on protected.

    Here is the link to the forums on the developer's web site (Blacktree.com).

    Wikipedia gives background on the quality argument for LAME -- not that I use it.

    Edit: oops, for some reason I didn't get all the replies on the page. Sorry! :(
