Subject: Encspot

I don't know if you know the programm Encspot, it can tell you which mp3
encoder was used and if the file is good or bad encoded and gives you some
other infos, too. If you have an VBR file it tells you how much percent per
bitrate is used.
I took a file I recorded with ArchosJBR and it seems that it uses the FhG
Encoder, I think it's the Fraunhofer codec, which is good but not as good as
the lame encoder (it still has the green sign which is the best encoding -
files encoded with Bladeenc have yello or red). The VBR I encoded with lame
had bitrates between 32 (for the passages where is no sound) until 256. Just
how you configured it.
The Archos codec uses only 128,160 and 192 kbps most of the file is encoded
in 192. (I use the highest quality, 7)

It's an interesting programm if you want to find out more about your mp3's
it shows many infos and I think it's freeware.
