View Full Version : High Bitrate mp3's not playing?

I have some mp3's which are encoded at 384kbps and softsqueeze doesn't
seem to want to play them. The fact that they are at this high bitrate
seems to be the only difference between the files that will and won't
play.

Have I made a mistake encoding files at this high bitrate?

Incidentally the problem is not restricted to softsqueeze,

will play: madplay, mpg321
won't play: mpg123, mplayer

Thanks for any help.

I think you'll need to keep your mp3 files at 320k maximum. I'm not sure 384kbps is part of the MP3 spec.
