Thanks everyone and happy and healthy new year to all.

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


1) LOL yes, it is lame. I'll remove it.
2) Command line for date/year tag for QAAC is "--date <"date">", so maybe that info is shown as "date" instead of "year". It is also possible that it maybe under the tag "Record Date".
3) Unfortunately I could not find any command line  tag parameter for fhgaacenc.exe.

I updated to 0.7. and the Year tag is now copied across when using QAAC. However, while it's nice that you've removed the "Encoded with TAudioConverter" default, the comment tag is now blank instead of being carried over from the source file.

One other suggestion that would make TAudioConverter even better would be the ability to use LossyWav (wiki) with the lossless formats.

Like the new look by the way

Sweet program!
How about adding "MP3 repacker"?
http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....showtopic=32379

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


You could add the lame 3100h http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....showtopic=98383 by halb27
It has built in support for mp3 repacker

Notwithstanding the patent-related technicalities of distributing binaries of LAME, bundling an alpha version with your software is not a good idea; never mind a customised one.

Ozok, you should ask the mods to update the news on the portal page now that you have an attractive new UI in 0.7.

Hi ozok,

this transcoding program looks very promising. Thanks for all the effort.
I transcoded a flac file to a lame mp3. ("copy tags from source" is enabled, no effect filters or post-encode action selected)
I had following issues :
  • created ID3v2.3 and ID3v1. I'd like to have the lame mp3 files tags only in ID3v2.3
  • created two unwanted tags: "ENCODERSETTINGS" and "LENGTH"
  • didn't copy the embedded image from the flac file (vorbis comments) to the lame mp3 (ID3v2.3 tags)

It would be great to have the embedded images copied to the new tags. Thats is a function which is missing in foobar2000 for a long time. :-)
Keep up the great work.

Who is the mod I should ask? Also first post must be edited too. I was not aware of editing restrictions at the time I posted it.

1) Added to my to-do list.
2) I do not know why that happens. I'll look into it.
3) TAC copies tags that can be extracted by MediaInfo.

Thanks for the fast reply.

I checked if MediaInfo can retrieve the cover embedded into an audio file.
Here is one post that it is possible.

Maybe it would be possible to implement?

Foobar2000 only has a "Bitrate" setting for the opus encoder.
Thats why I was wondering what the "Complexity" setting in your program is for?

New installer works great. You'll be ready for a 1.0 release in no time at the rate you're progressing, ozok.

LOL, looks like it. I most probably will be too busy to do much after february, so I am doing my best to add as much as possible while I can.

ozok,

I converted some tagged FLAC files to TAK, and the tags did not get embedded. No big deal, but thought you'd like to know.

I have an issue with portable version that doesn't exist in setup version. When I want to start coverting it says that it can't create output folder. My system is Win 8.

I am aware of that issue. So far, if I pass tag commands to TAKc.exe (ie -tt "artist=The Tea Party" ) it gives "unkown parameter" error eventhough it is shown like this in command line help.

Thx anyway.

Are you sure path in "Output Folder" text box exists? Or, does that text in that textbox have any illegal characters (ie / ? < > \ : * | ”) in it? Or do you have permission to write to that path? As default, output path is set to program's own folder.

I don't know anything about TAKc, but it seems like the syntax should be something like -tt artist="The Tea Party". Maybe it's a typo in the Help.

Since TAK tags are APE tags, maybe the Monkey's Audio docs would help.

I can't believe it. I have been writing "--tt" instead of "-tt". I must see my oculist soon!

Thanks jkauff, it will be fixed with next release. However you can get a version with that fix from here.

ozok,

This software looks great!  Just in time for a large (~400 GB) conversion project that I have coming up.  I do have two questions:

1) When converting from FLAC or MPC to mp3, will the ape tags be converted to id3 tags?
2) I like the ability to recreate the directory structure.  Is there the ability to delete source files?


What I'm trying to do is convert a mix of flac and mpc to mp3 for portable use.  I would like to duplicate everything (art in folder, txt files, etc) to the identical directory structure but not have to manually delete the (original) source files in the new directory.  I know that might not make sense...

None of my business, but I would strongly advise against deleting your lossless source files. Once you convert to a lossy format, you're basically stuck with that format forever (converting one lossy format to another loses even more audio information). If you must delete them, make sure you delete to a large Recycle Bin in case you make a mistake and need to re-do the conversion.
