For that you need to use a mp3 encoding program. The file needs to be rebilled, ti's not simply modify a bitrate in Windows Explorer.

Good luck!

lame.exe -b 128 input.mp3 output.mp3

will change input.mp3 to 128K bitrate. For more option say

lame.exe --help

That's great...I've been to SourceForge, but I can't seem to find the lame.exe download, just tarballs and links to apps using lame, any idea where I can get it?
