I have filled up my  portable MP3 player. No more disk space.
However most of the songs are in the wasteful
MPEG1, Layer III [ 256 kb/s @ 44100 Hz - Stereo ]
state when certainly half that bitrate or less, variable too, would
sound just the same to my 50 year old ears on my simple generic
(http://wiki.s1mp3.org) player, no?

So what be a good set of switches to mencoder to reduce the size of an
mp3 file, or do you recommend audacity etc.?
