       mp3fs - mounts and transcodes FLACs to MP3s on the fly

       mp3fs [OPTION]... FLACDIR MP3DIR

       The mp3fs(1) command will mount the directory FLACDIR on	MP3DIR.
       Thereafter, accessing MP3DIR will show the contents of FLACDIR, with
       all FLAC	files transparently renamed and	transcoded to MP3 format upon

       -b, -obitrate=RATE
	   Set the bitrate to use for encoding.	Acceptable values for RATE are
	   any which are allowed by the	MP3 format. According to the manual
	   for LAME, this means:

	   For sampling	frequencies of 32, 44.1, and 48	kHz, RATE can be among
	   32, 40, 48, 56, 64, 80, 96, 112, 128, 160, 192, 224,	256, and 320.

	   For sampling	frequencies of 16, 22.05, and 24 kHz, RATE can be
	   among 8, 16,	24, 32,	40, 48,	56, 64,	80, 96,	112, 128, 144, and

	   When	in doubt, it is	recommended to choose a	bitrate	among 96, 112,
	   128,	160, 192, 224, 256, and	320. If	not specified, RATE defaults
	   to 128.

       -d, -odebug
	   Enable debug	output.	This will result in a large quantity of
	   diagnostic information being	printed	to stderr as the program runs.
	   This	option will normally not be used. It implies -f.

       --gainmode, -ogainmode=MODE
	   Set mode to use for interpreting ReplayGain tags. The allowed
	   values for MODE are:

	   0 - Ignore all ReplayGain tags.

	   1 - Prefer album gain tag, but fall back to track gain if album
	   gain	is not present.

	   2 - Use track gain if present.

       --gainref, -ogainref=REF
	   Set the reference loudness in decibels to adjust ReplayGain tags.
	   ReplayGain software usually defaults	to a loudness of 89 dB,	but if
	   this	is too quiet, a	higher value can be set	here, causing
	   adjustment of ReplayGain values in tags.

	   Run in foreground instead of	detaching from the terminal.

       -h, --help
	   Print usage information.

       --quality, -oquality=QUALITY
	   Set quality for encoding, as	understood by LAME. The	slowest	and
	   best	quality	is 0, while 9 is the fastest and worst quality.	The
	   default value is 5, although	according to the LAME manual, 2	is

	   Force single-threaded operation.

       -V, --version
	   Output version information.
