One small problem with version info. I use flac.exe –version and metaflac.exe –show-vendor-tag in a windows batch script to determine if a .flac file needs to be updated to a newer version. The problem is the output is no longer consistent.flac.exe –version = flac 1.1.3beta2metaflac.exe --show-vendor-tag = reference libFLAC 1.1.3-beta2 20061016The “-“ seems to be the problem. Can you make the change in the final version so my script will work again?Thanks!
I was just wondering if the LYRICS tab request (see previous topic pages) has been taken into consideration (maybe it already has). IMHO it should be quite easy to implement (I guess it's just an empty space of a given size, isn't it ?).
That function is part of a larger script I use for multi-format flac conversion. You can download my current 1.1.2 compatable package from: http://www.revnull.com/download.php?file=!convert.zipJust unzip the !convert directory into the root of your flac file directory. Run the flac-util.cmd script and follow the prompts.
Foobar2000 [a href='index.php?showtopic=49191']generates[/a] multichannel WAV files, which are not compatible with flac.exe 1.1.3 and Windows Media Encoder. I've sent you a sample to the address at sf.net.
Oh BTW, what's the point in adding an empty LYRICS tag ? I don't understand.
I was just wondering if the LYRICS tab request (see previous topic pages) has been taken into consideration (maybe it already has).
My question was just about the use of an EMPTY lyrics tag. As far as I know we are not compelled to tell FLAC to define empty tags for all the other tags (title, album, genre, etc, etc.). They are default-defined (and empty of course until they are filled), and I guess it will be the same for the picture and LYRICS tags.
So I don't see the use in defining an empty lyrics tag, except for deleting the lyrics you don't want anymore of course.
Sort of off-topic, but the developers page at http://flac.cvs.sourceforge.net/*checkout*.../api/index.html doesn't seem to exist.
yes, unfortunately the API docs are built from sources at release time and not checked in. the easiest way would be to check out CVS head anonymously:http://sourceforge.net/cvs/?group_id=13478...and run Doxygen. or just read the raw porting guide in include/FLAC/all.h:http://flac.cvs.sourceforge.net/*checkout*...lude/FLAC/all.h
the beta seems fine. I'm still writing patches for various projects that are affected by API changes to make the transition easier. should be a couple more weeks.Josh
Thanks fairway.However I don't see any mention of the LYRICS tag in the changelog : http://flac.sourceforge.net/changelog.html.And the windows installer link ( http://cyberial.com/flacinstaller.asp ) still points to FLAC 1.1.2a : it seems that only the "tools only" link ( http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.p...ackage_id=12675 ) has been updated.
