This new tool allows you to recompress your MP3 files to save additional space. It can process MP3 files encoded with VBR and CBR bitrates. In both cases, you can save a couble of bytes or kilobytes, depending on the file.
MP3Packer maintains the original file tags, meaning there is no metadata loss.
MP3Packer tries to recompress the file losslessly, meaning the audio should not be changed. However, it is recommended to test the audio streams with Audio MD5 Checker to make sure they are identical.
This release adds a new “CPU Threads” option to limit the number of threads used for the encoding. This was added because sometimes when encoding multiple files, ffmpeg may get stuck due to having 100% of CPU utilization. Limiting the CPU threads will prevent this issue from happening.
