Encoding with FooBar2000's CLI encoder
Ok, at the command line, I tried encoding one file. I put the

Code: [Select]
oggenc -q 1 [filename here].wav


and it worked, just wanted to see what command line I'd have to use.

So then I try in FooBar2000, to convert my APE+CUEs to small -q1 oggs for transfer.

I put in

Code: [Select]
-q 1


It doesn't work, it says "invalid parameters, %d is missing"

So I try

Code: [Select]
-q 1 %d


Still won't work. I get again, a  "invalid parameters, %d is missing"

So I try

Code: [Select]
-q 1 - %d


And well, you can guess what happened.

I read the documentation, I searched this forum and went through the results, and I'm out of ideas. I can encode so far to APE, MPC, and MP3 using the presets and switches in FooBar2000's CLI encoder but I can't get Ogg Vorbis to work for the life of me. Any ideas.. I know the answer's probably right under my nose but I can't find it.

hello,
this is standard string in cli encoder for vorbis, write in foo_clienc_presets.txt


-q 6 -a "%artist%" -t "%title%" -l "%album%" -d "%date%" -N "%tracknumber%" -G "%genre%" - -o %d

if you dont have foo_clienc_presets.txt in foobar folder , reinstall cli plugin.
Music is my first love.

There's a separate, specialized Vorbis encoding plugin written by Peter himself. Try that. It's much more straightforward.

(1) moved where it belongs, (2) please spell "Foobar2000" correctly.
