Uhm, is it that Audiogalaxy? The one which was one of the first peer-to-peer music sharing services in the 90s?Anyway, a little bit of more information about what it is that you are actually trying to do would be helpful. Convert FLAC to what for example?
ffmpeg -i inputfile -vn -sn -acodec flac out.flac
ffmpeg -i - -vn -sn -acodec flac %d
ffmpeg & copy /b in.flac out.flac
Aight. Sorry to be such a noob, but I really am when it comes to encoding... where would I get the ffmpeg. exe to use in foobar?
the -aq option has no effect, as quality is not an issue since flac is lossless.
try removing "ffmpeg" in the parameters - the encoder dialog is already pointed directly at the .exe file.

Damned if ffmpeg doesn't try to keep its option names consistent. Let's hope libav will have proper documentation of options.
Tried, over and over again to use the 'compression_level switch in FFmpeg to convert a file to FLAC at a certain compression level. Totally uselsss. File size was the same no matter what level I chose. Switch doesn't work at all. Docs I've seen at their web site say nothing about FLAC, or any other lossless codec. IMO, if people want to use FFmpeg to do lossless conversion, they should just say no. Total waste of time.
avconv -i test.wav -compression_level 1 -y test.flacbitrate= 798.7kbits/s avconv -i test.wav -compression_level 12 -y test.flacbitrate= 715.8kbits/s
Sorry for the zombie thread, but I've searched for a long time and the above is the answer: -compression_level must occut after -i. Amazingly, if you put the level before -i, it gets ignored (and the default FLAC compression_level of 5 gets used).
ffmpeg <inputoptions> -i infile <inputoptions2> -i infile2 ... <outputoptions> outfile
But you can use foo_run to run ffmpeg.
