Tested with default settings. A 787 MB wave compressed to 371 MB. Played without trouble in foobar2000 ALAC decoder 1.0.3.
Converted with foobar the m4a to wave. The hash of the resulting wave is the same as the original wave.

Hope this info is useful.

Greetings,

Ben

Also works no problem on my Ipod Nano 4G, even with extreme encoder settings

I will try. Does fb2k decode 24-bit files? Don't ask me to install iTunes

For now here's an updated version of the same old 16-bit encoder, it's a bit faster than previous. It beats ffmpeg in both speed and compression.

No.  And Winamp + Winamp Essentials doesn't decode them too.

I dont think so. But dBpoweramp Music Converter does. And the version here claims to decode 24-bit files.

I today checked to see if it's already compatible with lossywav, it sadly isnt. Can someone comment on whether or not this encoder could eventually work with lossywav? Would be a space saver where it's needed most: on my ipod.

I don't think it could. ALAC format doesn't seem to support wastedbits feature. There's a suspicious wastedbytes field in the packet header, but even if it is what i think it is, it won't be enough.
