The odd thing is, there are a few ACM implementations of the excellent Open Source "lame" MP3 encoder out there, but so far I have been unable to find one that RMM will work with.

Cheers

I'd better check whether we even claim to support that in current RMM. At one stage at least we were considering skipping that for first release, as all the ACM Lame encoders we found were so utterly nonstandard ACM that we couldn't come up with a common subset of features that actually worked. Either way, we hope to improve support for third-party encoders in future (free, Web-upgradable) releases of RMM. We can't install any of them with RMM for patent reasons, but I reckon that if users have previously installed one themselves then we can assume that they've taken care of the patent thing, or perhaps are in a no-software-patents country.

Ahh.. perhaps some feedback on the missing bits might help the lame folks with their ACM implementations..

Cheers

We don't. If it's not registered as the WMP MP3 encoder, then we don't use it at all. We made this decision to cut down on the amount of QA required.

So, anyone know if there's any version of LAME that can be installed as the WMP MP3 encoder?

Not as far as I know.

I just got my copy of PC Gamer in the mail and it had a pretty good review of the Nitrus. They said it rocked on battery time and weight, but that if hard drive space was a killer issue for you that you'd probably want to go with an iPod or Jukebox Zen NX. However, they seemed to feel that size would not be and issue in everyone's mind. Direct quote: "Really, when it comes to size, ease of use, and feature set, we're hard-pressed to find a flaw in the Nitrus." I'd say that's pretty good press! Overall rating: 83% (Excellent).
