Thanks Jordan,
Exactly, I was already doing some tests with <encode> section into the
Ices2 configuration file, but I did not get the result sought.
I will do tests again, especially with <quality> and <nominal-bitrate>
Maybe I should not define both parameters at the same time.
I listen to radio stations with 64 kbps and good audio quality. I want
to achieve something similar by reducing the current bitrate to consume
a smaller amount of data.
Best regards.
