Missing audio transcoding options under VLC for Mac

Missing audio transcoding options under VLC for Mac

I'm following the iPod Video Conversion Guide for VLC (VideoLAN) v1.02 on a Mac. I've reached the section where I need to choose which audio transcoding option to use.

"VLC compiles fine on my Mac 10.6 using MacPorts. You have also some lattitude to install variants and pimp your VLC, including the libraries you ask for.

$ port variants vlc
VLC has the variants:
bonjour: Enable Bonjour support
darwin_10: Platform variant, selected automatically
dvb: enable DVB Program Specific Information support
fribidi: Enable FriBidi Unicode support
* requires osd
full: Enable all variants except x11 and no_*
* requires huge qt4 smb
huge: Enable all variants except x11, qt4, smb and no_*
* conflicts with minimal
* requires dvb fribidi live555 sdl shout speex svg vcd
live555: Enable Live555 streaming media support
macosx: Platform variant, selected automatically
minimal: VLC Mac OS X minimal configuration
[+]mod: Enable MOD demuxer support
[+]mpc: enable Musepack Decoder library support
no_dvd: disable DVD and DeCSS support
no_ffmpeg: disable FFmpeg support
[+]osd: Enable onscreen display and TrueType font support
qt4: Build using QT4 UI. This will use qt4-x11 if +x11 and qt4-mac otherwise.
sdl: Enable SDL/SDL-Image support
shout: Enable Shoutcast support
smb: Enable Samba 3 support
speex: Enable Speex decoder support
svg: Enable SVG support
[+]theora: Enable OggTheora support
[+]twolame: Enable MPEG Audio Layer 2 encoding
vcd: Enable VCD support
x11: Build support for X11
[+]x264: Enable H.264 en/decoding

so simply issue:

$ sudo port install vlc +huge

(and by updating / upgrading, you'll stay in sync with latest releases)"
