Some programs have configuration options like this:-
Code: [Select]
--disable-doc
--disable-docs
--disable-documentation


They are OK for when only a library is being compiled, no frills are needed.

(I have used libwavpack.a/libwavpack.la when building EasyTAG and FFmpeg)

Late thanks are due to David from me as hybrid WavPack, IMHO, is simply the bright light at the end of the tunnel that my then-ambiguous, hard-to-manage lossy-lossless collection had become, thanks to me having to care about only ONE single APE tag per audio file now - not two or three.

Thank you ever so much for the great work, David!

Listen to the music, not the media.

Best,

Thanks David. My old PC have rather small hard disk. The extra compression option always come in handy.

bryant, isn't this incorrect? From your website: "Hybrid mode now operates as low as 2.25 bits/sample (or 196 kbps for CD audio)". Shouldn't you say something like "near CD audio" or "mostly transparent to CD audio" or something similar?

2) "Foobar2000 Advanced Audio Player (native support w/ ReplayGain & Cuesheets)" = foobar2000?

3) "Easy CD-DA Extractor" = This one changed name: it is now EZ CD Audio Converter

By "CD audio" I mean 16/44. I don't say anything like "CD quality audio" (and in fact the quality is not very good at that minimum bitrate).

I could change the capital letter in foobar2000, but one could argue that I am just capitalizing the line (like above in the features), but I did miss "jetAudio"... 

Thanks for the name change of Easy CD-DA Extractor...I'll definitely fix that one.

...and dBpoweramp

But, I think you can skip the capitalization when you have points. I have to double check.

Any plans to add wave64 support? I recently had to encode some and had to use foobar2000 which wrote unnecessary metadata.

Yes, that is actually the next item. I have already most of the work for this in a development branch, initially implementing the CAF format

I had one question though. Should I implement wave64 and/or rf64? Does anyone know if one or the other of these has become "standard", or are they both widely used?

Thanks!

Probably whatever foobar2000 supports

As far as I can tell, only Wave64 is in the Converter. It produces a file header beginning with "riff".

It does play back both though...
