I have a Mac Os10.8. Was editing audio on Audacity 2.0.3.
I need to keep my result in a MP3 or WMA file.
I did as they adviced in order to fetch the encoding library. No result.
Whatever I do (brows or upload) I always get the plate up: Could not open MP3 encoding library.
Is it true that my computer is not allowed to use the free upload of Audacity. Is that the reason why I cant save my project in any other audiofile than Audacity?
Hello, my name is Dan.
I will do my best to help you, the only stupid question is the unasked one.

I have and use Audacity myself, free.
That said, let me make sure I understand what you are saying.
You have a file in Audacity now that you want to save as an mp3, correct?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Yes, MP3 or WMA


Asta Olafsdottir, Audacity will only save two ways, niether are what you want.

You need to Export, not save.
There you have many choices, from there use QuickTime to compress or modify.
Works like a champ.
That help?

Thank you. This works. I was exporting selection...or I don´t know what I did? Now I can continue my work.

Glad I could help Asta. I like Audacity, it can do so many things with audio and the price is great.
