As well as downloading the MPEGSuite 2000 CLI codec, you have to download MPEGSuite 2000 (the program) itself from http://www.dplanet.ch/users/phre/mpegsuite-e.htm . You will need to follow the instructions on http://www.dbpoweramp.com/codec-central-mpeg2000.htm to get it working properly.

Bear in mind that the quality output of this codec isn't very good - the standard Lame codec included as standard produces much better results, and is only marginally slower.
