Toolame is an open source implementation of MPEG-1/2 Layer II audio coding.

It supports also options to add DAB PAD field on every frame.

Basic Usage

-s <kHz>: sampling rate in kHz
-D <bytes>: add x bytes to every MPEG frame for DAB support
-b <bitrate>: output bitrate in kbit/s

See toolame man page for detailed information


toolame -s 48 -D 4 -b 128 /dev/stdin /dev/stdout

Get linear stream from standard input, encode it at 128kbit/s, add 4bytes for DAB PAD and output stream to standard output (this command is typically used, "piped" with other commands for live encoding in a DAB transmission)

Source code

Warning !

A more recent fork called twolame exists. Despite de fact that the code has been cleaned, twolame has lost DAB support that was present in toolame. So be careful to install toolame and not twolame for DAB tests.
