Output to mp3


I would like to output what Winamp plays to an mp3 file (in particular old video game music files). Both the LAME MP3 Writer plugin and the Nullsoft MP3 output plugin almost always crash on all files I throw at them, video game music files or regular audio files.

It's a regular Windows application crash: "Winamp has stopped working" etc... (I am on Windows 7 64 bit)

The Disk Writer output plugin, which outputs to WAV, works perfectly every time but I would like automatic mp3 conversion if possible. Is there any way to make this work?

There isn't a solution, which directly creates MP3 files.

Most of the gaming plugins never were updated and don't support the transcoder API. So you have to live with the Disk Writer. Write wav files with the Disk Writer and use the Winamp transcoder (rt click in Playlist/Song Ticker/Library > Send to > Format Converter) to convert the files to MP3. Note that you have to be an registered Winamp Pro user, to use the mp3 encoder.

As for the MP3 output plugins, most of them are outdated and don't work with newer Winamp versions.
