    Bitrate conversion

    I am attempting to configure a Slimserver so that it can be accessed by two different IP's. The one IP address is the local one in which no bandwidth limiting occurs, basically the default setup. I have a second IP address which is a virtual address that is used for outside connections. There are no issues connecting to either IP. The problem I'm having is setting up a fixed bitrate for the virtual IP. I put an entry in the convert.conf file, restarted the server, and it doesn't appear that its working. LAME is installed correctly. It may be that I just don't have it coded right. Here's what I have:

    mp3 mp3 192.168.1.9 *
    [lame] --silent --mp3input -q 9 -b 96 $FILE$ -

    Is this the right entry? Could someone help me out with this task.

    Thanks,
    Phil

    Bitrate conversion

    bitrate limiting no longer needs to be done in teh convert.conf. it is handled
    by the player settings, audio. under the title "bitrate limiting"
