The Winamp Transcoder version 2.0 (12th August 2006) is pretty stable with this latest beta  .
WavPack 4.80.0 -b384hx6cmv / qaac 2.59 -V 100

And it is the first build that allows converting MP3 files into other formats.

ReplayGain scanner currently doesn't work with Ogg Vorbis files.

Best Winamp release so far, looking forward for final.

The change only affected in_mp3 as you can see.

What kind of ReplayGain information is used? ID3v2 tag? APEv2 tag? LAME tag?

AFAIK Winamp doesn't support APEv2 tags at all. And since it lets you add the replayGain value with only IDv1 tags in place...

that leaves the lame tags?

But shouldn't Winamp add a IDv2 tag when applying the RG value? I have quite a lot of MP3s with just an IDv1 ta in place. For these files the RG value isn't added at all?

Winamp will add an ID3v2 tag, but it will only contain the TXXX/replaygain_* entries.  The metadata stuff will 'fall back' on the ID3v1 tag if the information is not contained in ID3v2.  If you have ID3v2 writing disabled, it  won't write the replaygain info.

ID3v2

Forgive me if I'm incorrect, I'm new to this ReplayGain stuff.

Doesn't it make more sense to at least _read_ the Lame RG-values? As far as I know all modern Lame encoders store the value anyhow and given the popularity of Lame in the near future most MP3's will have this RG-values already stored inside.

Couldn't you use a routine where Winamp uses the Lame RG-values if there are no RG-values in ID3v2 or maybe even copy them to the ID3v2 field. That way you use info that's already there and don't have to scan probably the majority of a users MP3 files again.
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?"

Would someone with a Winamp forum account please post my previous post in their development thread?
http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?s=...threadid=251985

The Winamp forum won't let me post, one is only allowed to post, pm or e-mail once one is fully registered. Since the registration is broken I can not let anyone know because you have to be registered to let them know registration is broken etc. etc.
I can not post anything although I can login, oddly enough.
I can not register with a new account because the forum will say the e-mail address is already used.
I can not reactivate my account because the forum says the url is invalid (an url the forum itself gives me either through e-mail or the website itself).
I can not use any link in e-mails the forum sends me because they are either said to be over 24 hours old (which they're not) or used too recently.
I can not use the account but I can change the password for it. Hurray 
Aaargh, this is driving me mad, I've been trying to get a simple account for over a week now. I feel like I'm in  a Kafka novel.

I think that there is no need to post it there since benski is monitoring this thread as well.

Hmm. What happens with an IDv1 tagged file with only the TXXX/replaygain_* entry in the IDv2 tag if you add the IDv2 song metadata. Will the TXXX/replaygain_* entry continue to exist?

And will it continue to exist, if the song metadata (artist...) is removed (the IDv2 checkbox unchecked in the file info)?

No. As the RG info is stored in ID3v2, if you remove the ID3v2 tag then you also remove the RG info. Next build will show the (uneditable) Track & Album Gain values under the ID3v2 section of the File Info box.

Also, the TXXX/replaygain_* entry won't be overwritten when copying from ID3v1 to v2 (if RG was previously applied but there was no other metadata in the ID3v2 tag).


@Maurits

I could be wrong here, but I think it's only lame.exe which auto adds RG to the lame header, not lame_enc.dll, which is fine if you're using the commandline version (or EAC), but Winamp (and most other software/rippers) use lame_enc. Though I do kinda agree that it would be nice to read RG info from the Lame header if it exists, heh.

Thank you very much. Winamp is again my default audio player

Just tested replaygain scanner speed in build 857 on one mp3 album. It reaches about 35x realtime while foobar2000 scans at 90x.

Nonetheless very nice to see full replaygain support in a "mainstream" app like Winamp! (I think replaygains "fault" that keeps it from reaching greater publicity is it's complexity - most people don't get the concept at first glance - sorry for beeing off-topic here...)

Do you really think Winamp is mainstream? Ok the player is very popular, but I guess many  Winamp users are advanced users, because Winamp is very flexible, you have tons of options.

I would say mainstream is WMP, RealPlayer etc, players with less options and and a simple GUI.

Winamp's ReplayGain just works fine, the new RG info in the tag editor is very useful. RG infos for Ogg Vorbis files are written in the vorbis comment field, finally I don't have to use vorbisgain.exe anymore.
