Standalone ALAC encoder without QuickTime/iTunes installed?
Hi

Since Apple Lossless (ALAC) now is open source since last year, are there standalone binaries for Windows and Linux available that can be used without QuickTime/iTunes installed?

(I only see a reverse engineered decoder available on rarewares.org)

There's refalac, which is bundled with qaac. Maybe someone could port it to Linux?

Again, post #391 to make it portable with foobar2000.

refalac.exe + msvcr100.dll + msvcp100.dll is portable.

Thanks for the replies!
Seems like both Windows and Linux are covered.
