Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Exactly what it says on the [strike]tin[/strike]topic, I can't get VirtualDub to work with LAME. At all.
I downloaded the LAME 3.98.2 ACM, and extracted it. Then I right-clicked the INF file, and hit Install; Vista pops up a UAC prompt, I hit Allow, and it shows it as copying some files to system32 (I think). Great!
But... LAME doesn't show up in the VirtualDub audio compression dialog.
Any ideas? I'm using Vista 64-bit, but the 32-bit version of VirtualDub (the other codecs I use are only available in 32-bit). Would that have something to do with it?
Right now my workaround is to use VirtualDub to save the audio as WAV (the source is recorded by Fraps, so it should be uncompressed... right?), then stick that WAV into a LAME frontend (to the CLI encoder extracted elsewhere), and using VirtualDub to splice in that resultant MP3. But it's a few extra steps, and a bit of a pain.
It seems like I'm missing something really simple here
