Command line MP3 conversion

Posted:

I need to automatically (i.e. be able to script with applescript / shell) the conversion of a folder full of AIFF files to mp3. I know this can be done using combination of applescript and quicktime but the results are *less than perfect*. I was thinking of using LAME and calling a shell command from Applescript. However, this is going to be incorporated into a much larger application so I don't want to use something where the libraries (those that LAME requires) are dispersed all over the system. What I want is to be able to have all of the libraries that LAME needs (apart from system libs obviously) in one folder (or bundle) so I can use it as part of my project. How do I do this (modifying the makefile?) or are there any other (easier) methods of achieveing this? Thanks in advance.
