HiI did the test with WMAL and could not find any issue.I compared the CRC's with Dbpoweramp and found no difference.When converting back to wav i found a small difference at the end of the file when doing a binary compare with fc/b command.But difference was in the Meta part of the file. I removed all Metadata from both files and fc/b gave me no difference.So your problem might have something to do with the foobar compare module.Flepp
WMA Lossless is obviously supposed to fully preserve the source data, howeverit appears that sometimes the last few samples of a file will be thrown away.
But even if we admit that the file is not corrupted, still, FLAC also fails to encode it properly. So why do you blame WMA lossless for that? Anyway, that file is strange and has been probably separated from some cue sheet.
so the source file did not cause any problems with FLAC?
And does anyone know if this problem still arises with the most recent WMAL encoder/decoders or with the wma SDK?
Isn't the SDK separate entity from WMP and Windows, or am I missing something?
