I'm late to the party, but anyways... didn't find any newer info about FLAC 1.3.0 builds for Windows, so I tested all the ones mentioned here.

Bug? Using the -p option results in much larger files than without p (up to 2% larger!). This doesn't seem to happen when I use a blocksize of 512. I haven't tested it on many input files yet, so it might be limited to my input files -- more testing is needed.

Are you seeing this in 1.3.0 but not in older versions?
There is a hidden message in the song at approximately 4:32. If played at half speed, Waters can be heard to say, "That was pretty avant-garde, wasn't it?"

So if FLAC is itself updated, do these changes affect old FLAC files or only FLAC files made with the new version?

Only those created with the new version or older files you reencode with the new version.

How do you think they would affect older files unless you did something to them?

No idea. Hence the "noob question".

FLAC git 3194829 win32 and x64 compiles:
win32, x64

Built using MSVC 2013 Update 3 RC using the Windows XP toolset (v120_xp)

I decided to use the latest FLAC git instead of 1.3.0 due to various Windows/MSVC support improvements.
You can browse FLAC's git repository and view all the changes since 1.3.0 here: https://git.xiph.org/?p=flac.git;a=summary

Indeed!

I only just downloaded them. I have not had the time to do any tests or setup my converters to use the git builds.

Nice to see development is continuing. So many nice improvements just looking at the git logs.
I like to use "HD audio" in PaulStretch. "HD audio", lol.

I hope they start thinking about tagging a release soon because these improvements are definitely worth it.

Great to see some new code here. I was considering FLAC to be "finished" to some extend, as in there is pretty much no room for further improvements.

Definitely glad to see someone take up the work.

I wonder when packagers start pushing builds into upstream, so my Fedora and Debian releases see them.

Ubuntu Trusty (14.04) packages Flac 1.3.0, so I bet it's in Sid at the very least. I don't know about Fedora, though.

Interesting.
The speed of encoding for the new alpha x64 build is now on par with FLACUDA/FLACCL.

foobar2000's converter w/ 8 threads:
FLACCL -6
FLAC (x64 alpha build) -8

That depends very much on the ratio CPU-speed/GPU-speed of course.

On the flac-dev mailinglist itself, some performance checks have been posted as well.

They are thinking of a 1.3.1: "This fix alone is worth a new release so its time to work towards one."

It would probably be useful if people gave this Git a good grilling and report any issues here or on the mailing list.

I hope they start thinking about tagging a release soon because these improvements are definitely worth it.

They are thinking of a 1.3.1: "This fix alone is worth a new release so its time to work towards one."

It would probably be useful if people gave this Git a good grilling and report any issues here or on the mailing list.

That's awesome news! I'm not sure how I missed that on their mailing list.


Hello guys,

Could you please test this one, it looks pretty good for a win32 compile.

It's nice to see MSVC compiles are comparable to GCC and vice versa. 64bit builds would be nice to see since the 32bit is nearly the speed of the MSVC 64bit.

I'd be wary of using GCC 4.9.0. I've seen a few projects (FFmpeg, Musl) that have had some serious issues with it.

FLAC git 3194829 win32 and x64 compiles:
win32, x64

Built using MSVC 2013 Update 3 RC using the Windows XP toolset (v120_xp)

I decided to use the latest FLAC git instead of 1.3.0 due to various Windows/MSVC support improvements.
You can browse FLAC's git repository and view all the changes since 1.3.0 here: https://git.xiph.org/?p=flac.git;a=summary

I get a nice encoding speed improvement with an i5 CPU, but with an older AMD X2 4000+ it performs the same as the old 1.3.0 from last year. Is this normal?
(Always using x64 on Win7.)
