Convert Real Audio files to MP3s
Authored by: terceiro on Feb 01, '05 10:57:17AM

Unless I'm missing something, I'm going to have to compile LAME for myself. It's not that I *can't*, but that it takes more time (and thought, if I have to modify anything). I heart binaries.

Alas, I suppose I gotta do what I gotta do. I'm interested to try this hint. With a little more scripting, I can automate my All Things Considered and Prairie Home Companion. Dang, I love free UNIX tools.

Here is a binary version of LAME in an OS X PKG format. I haven't tested it myself though. You also might want to look into something like DarwinPorts, which I've had good luck with (I prefer it over Fink).

Scroll down to Mac OS X software. There's a PKG for version 3.96.1 which is the latest.
