Another weird thing is that on my Linux distro (Ubuntu 8.04; I know it’s old ) I can’t even create or open(!) files over 2 GB with the command-line tools. What distro are you using? Did you create a custom build or something?
I’m not sure about the stuttering on hybrid lossless either. Especially in “fast” mode you should not be running out of CPU...does it play better if you rename or move the correction file so it’s not used?
In any event, all these problems will be fixed once I finish the development I’m working on with large file support
Heres a sample. http://www.mediafire.com/?15jms455cpxxpj6I used "wvunpack -i" to produce this sample. (The uploaded sample is the lossy compressed as lossless.) Using "wvunpack" (using the correction file) also produced these results. In the sample, you'll notice that only the channels that are paired together (FL+FR, SL+SR) are affected by stuttering. The lossless (not hybrid lossless) decompressed correctly.
It may be possible that some of the previous files I've compressed may be affected by this (but I don't think so, because I check them after encoding; also this is also my first file of >6 channels that I've encoded.) Would I have to re-encode them for proper playback once you implement large file support? (All of the files should be in matroskas if that matters.)
When is the library that can handle larger files schelduled to be released?
