    Question Getting Sound Recorder to record as mp3

    Just installed Natty and always used Sound Recoder to directly record as mp3 files on previous Ubuntu versions. I forgot what you have to do to get mp3 added to the option list on Sound Recorder. Can someone tell me what has to be done so Sound Recorder will again save all my recordings as mp3 files?

    Re: Getting Sound Recorder to record as mp3

    Still need some help.

    Installed gsteamer plugin and mp3 option, was added to Sound Recorder.
    However the mp3 bitrates and times it renders are erratic and incorrect. Bitrates act like Variable Bitrates and run from 40-120, can't seem to get them higer to 192 or 320 as a Constant Bitrate, which I prefer. And a 4 minute song shows up as 8 minutes but plays as 4 minutes.

    What is needed to correct this? It didn't happen on earlier versions before Natty.

    Re: Getting Sound Recorder to record as mp3

    Well I partially solved it.

    Installed lame, it took awhile.
    Now I get consistent bitrates of 100-112 and song times are accurate. No more low bitreates of 40 or 50 with a 3 minute song showing a time of 6 minutes.

    But I would like to get higher bitrates, like 192 or more out of Sound Recorder.
    Can somebody tell me how?

    Re: Getting Sound Recorder to record as mp3

    Code:
    gnome-audio-profiles-properties
    After that, you can edit the mp3 profile or create a new one for VBR. The pipeline should look something like:
    Code:
    audio/x-raw-int,rate=44100,channels=2 ! lamemp3enc name=enc vbr=4 vbr-quality=6 ! xingmux ! id3v2mux
    Where quality=
    Code:
    vbr-quality         : VBR Quality
                            flags: readable, writable
                            Enum "GstLameQuality" Default: 4, "4" Current: 4, "4"
                               (0): 0                - 0 - Best
                               (1): 1                - 1
                               (2): 2                - 2
                               (3): 3                - 3
                               (4): 4                - 4
                               (5): 5                - 5 - Default
                               (6): 6                - 6
                               (7): 7                - 7

    OK, I created a new VBR that showed up in the selection box.
    Then when I tried adding the codes below in terminal and it just kicked out errors and nothing happened.
    What did I do wrong?

    The pipeline should look something like:
    Code:
    audio/x-raw-int,rate=44100,channels=2 ! lamemp3enc name=enc vbr=4 vbr-quality=6 ! xingmux ! id3v2mux
    Where quality=
    Code:

                            Enum "GstLameQuality" Default: 4, "4" Current: 4, "4"

    PS: When I open Sound Recorder the VBR option is not added to the list of options.

    Curious, but why not record to another format that isn't lossy (like FLAC or something) then convert to whatever bitrate mp3 later?
