Play AAC Files with TiVo Desktop 1.9 via fast LAME
Authored by: c15zyx on Feb 23, '05 11:23:43AM

If you had Fink build from source and it's still slow, then it's likely that Fink is using it's own safer flags. Someone on the Fink boards asked why the packages aren't built using -fast or other aggressive optimizations, but the developers replied that it was more important to have reliable binaries (some optimizations can lead to buggy code). Also, -fast makes certain assumptions, and for a lot of programs (including LAME) it works great. However, sometimes it causes major problems (ie. try using an xvid+altivec library compiled with -fast)

Aargh why can we not edit posts on MOSXHints? Also, there is a very large speed increase between newer versions of LAME, for example, using --alt-preset standard on 3.96 is twice as fast as 3.90.3. While the Fink unstable is 3.93, I believe there were also some major speedups from 3.95 and upwards.
