The parameters "-m j -V 4 -q 2 -lowpass 11 -b 64" and Lame version 3.98r are reported by mediainfo when I open a audiobook mp3 file I downloaded from e-music. Both mediainfo and mp3tag report this file as being a CBR file, but from reading the VBR documentation here http://lame.sourceforge.net/vbr.php using the -V option produces a VBR file even without the -v parameter and the -b parameter sets the minimum bit rate instead of forcing a constant bit rate. Is that correct or am I missing something? What would be the advantage of using -V 4 when encoding a CBR file?

Encode a file with "-h -b 64" and MediaInfo will show the parameters you quoted.

Thanks lvqcl! Any idea why mediainfo is reporting the encoding settings that way? Is it a mediainfo error or is it from the Lame header of the file?
