winLAME is an encoder for several audio formats, including mp3 (MPEG Layer 3), Ogg Vorbis and more. winLAME lets you set up the encoding process with an easy-to-use wizard-style user interface.
winLAME supports many input audio formats, and uses the LAME mp3 encoding library for encoding and the MAD decoding library for decoding. See the features page for a list of all supported formats.

Unfortunately no new translations were provided yet. If you'd like to translate winLAME to your native language, you're welcome!
I created a translation guide that describes how to translate winLAME into other languages. You can find it here: Translation Guide.txt. If you have any questions about translating or if you want to know if translation to a certain language is already under way, please send me an email.
In the last years I made some additions and changes to winLAME and fixed quite a few bugs. I decided to occasionally release a new version with updated libraries and bug fixes when I have time. Therefore winLAME got a new naming scheme. The year of release will be appended to the version name, and there will be a beta, a release candidate and a full release version for each version released.
Note that this beta 1 release is not intended for production use! It may contain bugs that may reduce audio quality and prevent some features to be used. Testing is encouraged, though. If you find a bug, describe and add it to the winLAME bugtracker on SourceForge or send it to .
Here's an (incomplete) list of changes:
Note: If you previously used custom presets using the presets.xml file, consult the help file for changes according to presets.
If you're interested in translating the user interface of winLAME, please send me an E-Mail. There's no money to be made, though, only eternal fame and glory :)
