sox FAIL util: Unable to load MAD decoder library (libmad) function "mad_stream_buffer"

sox dll

mad mp3 decoding library
sox software

I compiled libmad for sox. When I try to read an mp3 I get this message:

sox FAIL util: Unable to load MAD decoder library (libmad) function "mad_stream_buffer".

Did I compile the project incorrectly?

Steps to using SOX to create MP3s:

  1. Download latest version of SOX and install.
  2. Download libmad-0.dll and libmp3lame-0.dll. The currently only known trustworthy source is ossbuild but this requires you to download a 1.5 GB archive. The selected two files are available here and here.
  3. Add libmad-0.dll and libmp3lame-0.dll to the folder where SOX was installed to.
  4. Use the command line to convert a file to .mp3:

    sox input.wav -c 2 -C 128 output.mp3
    

Note: -c 2 makes it stereo, -C 128 specifies output as 128 kbps MP3

  • I spent an hour fussing with trying to install LAME manually before I happened across this. Thank you and OSSBuild!
  • @bulltorious, I can not download libmad-0.dll and lbmp3lame-0.dll. If I press Download button in Box, I get error in Firebug: "NetworkError: 403 Forbidden - https://app.box.com/index.php?rm=box_download_shared_file&shared_name=tzn5ohyh90viedu3u90w2l2pmp2bl41t&file_id=f_69256952453". Thanks.
  • As of August 2017 .DLLs are still there in 1.5 GB archive. Thanks.
  • Download mirror: libmad-0.dll and libmp3lame-0.dll.
  • Working like a charm
  • This worked for me, thanks
  • Useful article because the "finished" version (sox compiled with lame and libmad) is included.
  • Here is the updated URL ossbuild.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/Shared/Build/Windows/Win32/…
  • Links do not work anymore
