Is there a reason silence isn't lower than 32? I know it probably won't make that much difference to a file to have it on the lowest possible bitrate unless theres a hidden track after 15 mins of silence.

Is there some hardware player compatability issues with extremely low bitrates or something?

DAP's are not something I have, or will probably have so I'm not too worried about doing it. Would the -b 8 switch work if it's preceeded by a lame preset or does that preset override anything else?

I think freeformat can only be CBR, otherwise it would be too difficult to figure out the frame size.
