    Hi all,

    AudioConverter and Core Audio support MP3 to linear PCM, but apparently there's no way to encode MP3 from linear PCM.

    Does anyone know of a way to encode MP3 on the iPhone, maybe a 3rd party framework? I'm surprised that Fraunhofer or Lame encoder haven't been ported to objective-C / iPhone SDK yet.

    Much appreciated,

    At least Lame is ported to mac os X without mentioning specific ( 386 or ppc) architecture, so I would try stuff new iphone project with all the files from mac os x project and try to build it.

    I researched futher, and it turns out that indeed any app sold on AppStore would require mp3 licensing through Thomson (
