New exe correctly extracts PCM from VOB, but extracting of ac3 from vob is incorrect now (not playable file).

My Android voice recorder app produces .3ga files. I managed to convert a test file by changing the suffix to .3gp before running TAudioConverter. Not surprisingly the log file showed that it was looking for video content but it worked anyway. While It's not much trouble to rename first would you consider adding .3ga support?

Thanks

PS - nice piece of software by the way

Thanks for your comment. I also added support for 3ga files.

Many thanks. Where can I get the latest version? Sourceforge is still carrying the same one I already installed.

Thanks

Extracting from 3gp works, but I cannot add 3gp using drag-and-drop, only File->Add files works.
Also extracted audio from 3gp in amr format is packed into 3gp again, why not amr itself?
And FLAC stream extracted from *.mkv file is packed into *.mkv...

3gp adding problem will be fixed with the next release.

Is there a "Empty audio codec name" warning in the log? Also small samples would be welcome.

Hi Ozok,


Thanks for this great app. This is the best program I've used for Apple quicktime vbr AAC encoding.

I have 1 question and 1 comment. For QAAC encoding, is 'Encoding Quality' 0 or 2 better? sometimes encoders have a backward counting scale for better quality, like Lame MP3.

My comment concerns the flac metadata not completely being transfered to the new AAC files, the 'date' is not displaced, all the rest of the tagging data transfers correctly.

Thanks again.

2 is the best.
foobar2000, FLAC, and qAAC -V90
It just works people!

As meeko said 2 is best.

Date tag is passed as "year". I do not know, is date the right one instead of year?

PS. Some encoders accept it as "year" instead of "date", there is not much i can do about that.

Hi Ozok,


Just tried the latest version and the 'date' still doesn't transfer from the flac file to the new .m4a file. When I read the log, the 'date' does show in the metadata.

I don't understand how all the metadata transfer happens 'under the hood'.

Has anyone else experienced the same issue when encoding tagged flac files to Apple Quicktime AAC (TVBR:100, Encoding quality:2)?

As you said Ozok "PS. Some encoders accept it as "year" instead of "date", there is not much i can do about that." Maybe I should bring this up with the QAAC developer?

TAudioConverter is the best app I've used for QT AAC encoding, so thanks for that Ozok

@Stop the Noise, no it is TAC's fault date is not passed. It wil be fixed with next version.

Edit: Replace your TAudioConverter.exe with that one https://dl.dropbox.com/u/9617171/TAudioConverter.7z. It is the same as 0.6.2 but with "date" tag is passed to QAAC.

Like this app. Thanks for that!

Have two kinda different questions. What does the "algorithm quality" option mean, while LAME MP3 encoding?
The second one is, did you plan to release an mac version of this awesome tool? Don't want to use an virtual machine all the time.

vbr is generally recommend, the "algorithm quality" refers to the average bitrate, see this page;

http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?ti...ate.29_settings

v0 is the highest quality for vbr and as the numbers increase v1, v2 ... v9 the quality decreases but so do the file sizes

Hmm looks very interesting. I do not use mp3 (lame) much lately. Have you been using it? Do you have command line suggestions?

1) From lame help:
Quote
Bitrate is of course the main influence on quality.  The higher the
bitrate, the higher the quality.  But for a given bitrate,
we have a choice of algorithms to determine the best
scalefactors and huffman encoding (noise shaping).


I think leaving it at 0 (which is the best) is a good idea. I doubt that speed gain will be too high if you disable it (setting it to 9, which is the worst).

2) I think as of XE2 Delphi applications can be compiled for Mac OS. Though I've never compiled one. But TAC uses many components (like JVCL) and they rely on Windows API afaik. So, I do not think it is possible. I did not try TAC, but i could run TX264 with WINE under Linux Mint. TAC is based on TX264.

Edit: Sorry, default value for algorithm quality setting for Lame is 5, not 0.

Can you drag&drop single files? Or are you trying dragging a folder?

I'm running 0.6.2 b459 and would like to report some problems :

  • It overwrites the Comment Tag with "Encoded with TAudioConverter" I can see why you might want to do that but I use the Comment Tag and would rather it stayed unchanged. Could it be made an option?
  • I converted some .ogg files using QAAC. The Year tag is not being carried across to the .m4a file
  • I converted the same .ogg files using FHG. No tags at all are being carried across to the .m4a file

Hi ozok,

Thank you so much for this program which is an absolute Godsend for me as I have not had the time to learn "command line" and now I won't have to. Brilliant!
