Mix3dmessagez, did you by chance read the first post? I've reconverted ~1400 songs, albums don't necessarily get smaller, some get bigger. For sure it's better, Apple likes to improve its components. Let's move on more technical details/issues.
So. Can anybody blind listening any differences between older and current CoreAudio or is the bitrate decrease only result of compression optimization?
The file CoreAudioToolbox.dll is different between QuickTime & iTunes, though version is the same? iTunes: File: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support\CoreAudioToolbox.dllSize: 4986768 bytesFile Version: 22.214.171.124Modified: Monday, January 28, 2013, 13:08:16MD5: D420904DDF2619DA2A96371B0D4670C9SHA1: 686334C8CC26B0C79FFBE361455EC2E5841BD4C2CRC32: BF71EFDDQuickTime: File: C:\Program Files (x86)\foobar2000\QTfiles\CoreAudioToolbox.dllSize: 4986768 bytesFile Version: 126.96.36.199Modified: Thursday, October 11, 2012, 21:56:10MD5: 8A73BCF073DA081C47C98F16E9805855SHA1: F40BB960AC8124E191E688E46BF07DBDEADA5D02CRC32: E4583F09
First come up with something compliant with TOS #6, please.
Odd, I just downloaded new iTunes. Same version number you mentioned, 11.1.4, but I'm getting a different version of CoreAudioToolboxI'm getting 188.8.131.52 and the name is still CoreAudioToolbox.dll
I guess I got the best of both worlds. iTunes 11.1.4, the file is named "AppleApplicationSupport_CoreAudioToolbox.dll", and the file version/product version for me is 184.108.40.206.
