MP3 Encoder List

Below is a compilted list of programs that come with an encoding engine to convert WAV to MP3.  Some programs include encoders that will handle other file formats as well such as WMA or OggVorbis.  Included is a list other features that the software can perform.  If the home site of the software does not identify the encoding engine, we tested the encoded MP3 files with the program EncSpot which will give the best estimate on which MP3 codec is used.  All engines identified this way are marked with a "?". We'll be adding more software in time.  To download directly, go to our MP3 encoder downloads page.
