Transcoding 24bit/96khz flac to 16/44.1 mp3 for portable devices?

Every thing I try to send a 24 bit flac to my mp3 player, winamp spits out an error "Cannot open encoder".

Is there anyway to do this?

Are you using Winamp 5.55 or some older version?

Winamp 5.55
* Fixed: [enc_flac] 24-bit FLAC encoding

I always run the latest version. And that fix is for encoding 24 bit flacs, not transcoding 16 bit mp3s from 24 bit flacs. The encoder apparently doesn't support downsampling higher resolution files.

Yeah, I realised that afterwards.
Hmm... I've got some 24-bit WAV files, but not FLAC.
I assume that using enc_flac to encode eg. 24-bit wav to flac was broken before,
but trying it now just produces a 16-bit FLAC file.

I'll get it looked into, but I/we'll need a sample file to test with first...

Ok... we got a sample 24-bit/96KHz flac test file....

Problem reproduced.

I get the "Can't open encoder" error when trying to transcode it to mp3.

Thanks.

Apparently, enc_lame doesn't handle sample rates greater than 48KHz...
and alas, it won't be easy to change/fix it either :-(
