It's a bit offtopic for this list, but you might be able to help. For 
libvorbis rc3, what is the correct bitrate parametrization for the call 

For rc2, it worked calling it the following way:

vorbis_encode_init( &vorbisInfo,
                     2,                     // two channels
                     44100,                 // 44.1kHz
                     96000,                 // 96kb/s
                     -1 );

And this produced an Ogg Vorbis stream of about 80 kbps on average.

But in rc3, the above call produces a circa 240 kbps Ogg Vorbis stream 
(as reported by xmms). I tried putting 96000 in place of the -1 values, 
and also putting 96 instread of 96000, but no luck.

Any hints would be greatly apprieciated.
