I have a suspension that some of the music files on my hd were dl'd at 64kbps but don't know how to check it. What do I look for and how?
Thanks
Steve

a log of different ways, on windows, just right click file, then select properties, then details tab. under audio should show bit rate. If you're looking at lots of files, I'd install mp3tag. Then open these directories in mp3tag and sort on bitrate columnn. add a custom column (right click the column headings to add), and create a new column. Give it name: bitrate, and the value:
%_bitrate% kb/s $left(%_vbr%,1)

this will show bitrate and whether file is VBR.

Might also add a column for "tag type"
%_tag_read%[ (%_tag%)]

and encoder used:
%encodersettings%

and within LMS, just click on the song link and it gives you all sorts of info, including bitrate and filetype.

If I was looking to examine the bitrate of a bunch of files, I'd consider using a tool like mp3tag on my Windows box to sort/examine my entire library at once. If you're on a different platform, I'm sure there are similar tools. (Actually, I maintain my music library in JRiver Media Center as well as LMS; JRiver would make even quicker work of this task.)
