PM me the IP address you are browsing from at home? Also the time you are attempting to browse.

E: Disregard that, it's logged.

E2: I see several accesses preceding that which were banned for using privacy VPN services or VPS hosted servers that had a default hostname for their provider, which is in the banned hostnames list. One of them being unknown.puregig.net.

Why would I be banned for life for using a VPN? Is that so uncommon? How do I get un-banned?

Usually because a persistent spammer is using the same VPN service to hide their true IP.

Support - (fb2k) / Re: Incorrect display of DTS-HD stream format from MKV
Last post by kode54 -
It's a limitation of the packet_decoder interface. I'm only allowed to detect the format from the first packet, and DTS-HD requires at least two packets, since the first packet, as far as the container is concerned, is the DTS compatibility header. It doesn't help that every input packet is alternating with DTS lossy data, which is also essential to the decoding process.

Support - (fb2k) / Re: Beta 17 download imposible (only via download manager - and still slow)
Last post by kode54 -
Are you sure it's not your routing? There is no download throttling on the server that I know of, I just know it's awfully slow to anywhere with significant distance from the UK if you're not the CloudFlare network. (I tested a test subdomain on the same server, against one of my CloudFlare domains, with their proxy, and was able to achieve full speed. Of course, using CloudFlare does automatically exclude some countries from access at all.)

Addressed all 3 cases (WMA, M4A, VorbisComment-based formats) in 1.4 beta 17, thanks for your patience.

As you've probably guessed I don't personally use this field, that's how it was working so badly to begin with. Please do post if you find any more issues with it.

Hello Admin,

Thanks again for your work on this.

I tested all file types mentioned on hydrogenaud.io's Tag Mapping Page for functionality with the beta release you directed me to (foobar2000 v1.4 beta 17), and all file types work except one: My .ape file with a APEv2 tag is still not mapped correctly in Foobar2000 v1.4 beta 17. Foobar2000 v1.4 beta 17 is still erroneously mapping APEv2 tags to Content Group rather than the correct field Grouping --although I've seen some software cut corners and map it to GROUPING. I don't know if these fields are case sensitive, but I imagine you would know about that.

I can only guess that Scaramouche is referring to ape files in his post (msg=958586).

Thanks again and have a great day!

Opus / Re: Opus 1.3-rc
Last post by IgorC -
12-20 kHz frequency range is important for noisy speech and music (stereo material, etc..) http://oh3tr.fi/~oh3gdd/Publications/%5B12%5D_Dallas_ICASSP2010_Ramo_Voice%20Quality%20Evaluation%20of%20Various%20Codecs.pdf

Also Opus codes 12-20 kHz range  in just 2 freq. bands of total 20  (10% of total bands). Add to that band folding and 12-20 kHz range is coded just at few-to-several hundreds of  bits ( less than 1 kbps). 

So it's very cheap for Opus to code this range starting from somewhere ~13.2 -14 kbps.

P.S. Also I suspect that SWB can be pushed down to ~11-12 kbps (at least for speech) because 1.3RC SWB@13.2kbps is on par with an older 1.2.1 FB@16kbps   :o
