MP3 Encoding

After several rounds of trial and error the following conclusion was reached by MDV:

Using Audacity to convert MP4 to MP3

  • Bit Rate: Variable
  • Quality:  65-105kbps
  • Variable Speed: Fast
  • Channel Mode: Joint Stereo

The above settings produced a smaller audio file with minimum loss of audio quality.

 

Used Audacity for Windows to convert single AND batch-convert videos downloaded from Vimeo to MP3 Format.

NOTE* Audacity’s single file conversion options found under file->export.

Batch export found under Tools->macros
