If you wish to re-encode your mp3s to stream them over a low bandwidth
connection, you can use Lame in conjunction with Amplitude. You
must manually edit the configuration file to do this. Open the ...webapps/amplitude/WEB-INF/amplitude.properties
file and change the lame.command setting. It defaults to empty.
This plays mp3s at their full bit rate. To use lame change the command.
Examples are included in the amplitude.properties.lamewin32 and
An example commandline might be:
lame.command=/usr/bin/lame -h -b %b --mp3input
The %b is replaced by the bitrate at runtime.
