    Hi,

    I just thought that if anyone else besides me would like to use jack and lame to create ABR mp3 files, I should post by solution. I created a three line encoder entry called "lame-abr", by adding the following lines to jack_helpers.py:

    helpers['lame-abr'] = helpers['lame'].copy()
    helpers['lame-abr'].update({'vbr-cmd': "lame --preset %r --nohist --strictly-enforce-ISO %i %o",
            'vbr-otf-cmd': "lame --preset %r --nohist --strictly-enforce-ISO - %o",
    })

    It can be used with a cmdline like "jack -b 160 -E lame-abr".
