    Bitrate limiting on Ubuntu server (7.9.x)

    Hi all, one of my players is SqueezePlayer on my Android phone. Often I use the mobile data network to stream (no wifi in that situation) to that player. All my music is FLAC. I would like to data-limit the stream to the Android phone. I'm not sure how to do so. The player tab has a greyed out Bitrate Limiting option (no lame installed). My server is a Ubuntu 16.04 server with the latest nightly. Isn't SOX suitable for it? Or do I need to install LAME on the machine (and if so, how)? Hope that someone can help me with this.

    Thanks, Ralph
