FLAC / Re: FLAC v1.3.4
Last post by MrRom92 -
Thank you again NetRanger!

I finally got a chance to try this out however I still could not compress the 24/768kHz files I had. It immediately errored out both trying it with FLAC.exe directly as well as trying to start a conversion in Foobar. Not sure if it’s a “me” problem

As already noted, picard works fine in any SO. Will remove mixx from the readmes.

You may also use this to get key and BPM:
https://mtg.github.io/essentia-labs/news/2015/12/22/static-binaries-for-extractors/
Code: [Select]
streaming_extractor_music.exe file.flac out.txt
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Extracting the tag and tagging is up to you, but doable with scripts on batch.

Or KeyFinder
https://github.com/ibsh/is_KeyFinder

Code: [Select]

(*) May require additional configuration or steps to either set a
compatible tag name or merge values. See 'Tagging requisites' readme.

NOTES AND WARNINGS:

- Mixx: https://mixxx.org
Provides KEY tags, but will flatten all multivalue tags with spaces,
making impossible to undone the tagging. Issue has been unresolved for
years.

- Essentia: https://essentia.upf.edu/download.html
See Precompiled extractor binaries (Linux, OSX, Win).
Allow to extrack KEY and BPM tags, but output to a txt file. Could be
used with scripting for batch processing:
streaming_extractor_music.exe file.flac out.txt

CD Hardware/Software / Re: How to clean CD?
Last post by 2tec -
I thanks all suggestions.  :)

Maybe the unique method completely reliable is with a Japanese machine for polish the disk. I found that some videogame stores could offer this service. But where I live, I'll never found this service.

But the machine is really expensive, is over 6000 dollars!  :o
you don't really need a machine to do a few CDs, start with detergent, then baking powder toothpaste, then a metal polish, then try wax and or try several different CD drives that recognize c2 errors, then use cuetools to fix rips that aren't perfect, https://www.wikihow.com/Fix-a-Scratched-CD

often even less than perfect rips actually sound fine, however if the CD is quite scratched, replacing the CD is often easier than repairing it, irreplaceable CDs can be 'recovered' professionally but the cost can be high, typically in the hundreds of dollars

^ No idea really, but seems like the ol' YT throttling issue has returned. I went back to using older yt-dlp 2022.01.21 and YT videos are smooth again. (foo_youtube 3.8 )

Unfortunately the throttling is not gone, but I did get smoother video output eventually. I think that is because the LAV Filters have been updated, might have been an incompatibility with Windows 11.
