Is LAME (3.99.4) meant to give “bitstream problem” decoding freeformat
Edit: This is FREEFORMAT, and that was supposed to be in the topic, which was truncated upon posting. Oh well.


Was just playing around with freeformat (yeah I know it's practically useless), and encoded (using the same LAME version) freeformat files of various bitrates from 128 to 640. Decoding yields the output 'bitstream problem, resyncing skipping [xxx] bytes', where xxx = 2088 for the 640. Is it supposed to do so?

By the way,  freeformat encoding isn't supposed to write headers, right? So it cannot be that it skips some odd header bits?

I read changelog before posting, but FWIW: same behaviour with 3.99.5 (rarewares build ... I think my 3.99.4 is rarewares build too).

(Edit: thx to the moderator for the smartquotes. Will try to remember that fix.)

No problem!  I had to shorten the wording too, though.

For reference to all: Characters such as typewriter quotes, ampersands, etc. that are reserved for special uses in HTML are therefore replaced by escape codes (e.g. &), wasting space in the 70-character limit to (sub)titles. This can be avoided by using smart (proper!) quotation marks, the plus symbol, and other symbols that aren’t reserved.

IMHO it skips the first frame that contains LAME header.
