With audacity you don't open Lame. when you download lame, put in the same place as audacity. Once you have created your file in audacity, click "export as mp3" the first time you do this it will ask for the location of lame, show it. then it will export a mp3 to what ever location you told it to.

What is the extension on the Lame file you downloaded? I think what you mean is you can't open the archive containing Lame. If it's .SIT or .BIN you need to go to Version Tracker and download the Free Stuffit Expander. Install that then click on the Lame archive.

Hope that is what you are after. After you extract Lame, do what Boneheadz said and put the files in the audicity folder.

what is the exact filename of the Lame file you downloaded?

What is the URL where you downloaded Lame?

http://spaghetticode.org/lame/

the osx one is in .sit. That is a Stuffit file. It's the library and you place it in the Audicity folder.

Relax....

Lame is a library for Audacity. Means you cannot open Lame, it just sits there. Now after downloading the Sit-File, double-click it and it will unpack automatically. DON'T open Stuffit.

Place the contents unpacked into the correct place in your Audacity folder. Look up some of the support sites for lame to see where exactly to put Lame. Then launch audacity and do whatever you want. Lame is not an Application. It's a library.

omgosh i feel like a tard. here is exactly what i am doing.

i download stuffit. i install it. i don't open it.

i download lame.

on the desktop, after lame has been downloaded, two things appear. a box-like icon that says ".sit" on it and a separate blank page icon that just says lamelib

i also have an audacity folder on the desktop that is the hdd looking thing (whatever it really is) and it says "audacity 1.2.5-intelpre1. i've tried to put lame in this folder. i've opened this folder and tried to put lame in the plug-ins folder inside of this. when i do, it gives me an error message saying that it cannot be modified.

i feel so dumb.

That HDD looking thing that says Audacity 1.2.5 is a Disk Image like a Disk Drive. Since there is more there than just the Application, I made a folder in Applications called Audacity and drug all the icons from your Image to that folder. Then you can delete the Image from your desktop. Drop the lamelib into the folder you made in Applications called Audacity.

Worked for me.

when i try to export as mp3 while in audacity, the only lame type thing i can choose is in the puzzle piece shape and has a yellow symbol on it. then i choose it and it says it cannot open the mp3 encoding library.

Are you running Audicity out of the Drive Icon or did you make a folder in Applications and put it there? I did all I told you above and dropped Lame in the folder and I was able to export MP3 and the other two choices also.

Did you drop a copy of that lame library into that directory? I have it right there with the Audacity Application. Not in the PlugIns.

Ok I see your problem. When you try to export MP3 is says there is no Lame Library and give you a yes or a no to find it. Click Yes then when it comes up point it to that lame library in your audacity folder. Then click open. It will then know where it is and continue exporting the MP3. I had to try it on another system since mine was already set up.

That will work.
