Anyway, I have a bug to report... Not sure whether it belongs here or on the foobar2000 forum, but the point is that when using the new foobar2000 beta to encode (after renaming mpcenc.exe to mppenc.exe and pointing the program to it), the encoding process hangs and nothing happens. Perhaps it's entirely expected, but in any case it's something someone will have to fix eventually.
I had given up to expect this in my lifetime, nice surprise. I wonder if there are still enough users to help beta-testing
I managed to crash mpc2sv8.exe Command line: mpc2sv8.exe e:\a.mpc d:\System: XP SP2
Will the new version only be compatible with Foobar 0.9.5 and the "official/native" non-backwards-compatible Winamp 5 plugin? That pretty much locks me out.
Nobody answered my question... So, if this update also affects quality, is MPC optimized for certain bitrates - or maybe the other way round - are there any bitrate ranges where MPC should not be used?
