CD Hardware/Software / Re: Create cue sheet from EAC log
Last post by korth -
I put up my post in response to Porcus's recent post that CueTools could generate the CUE from log, which happens to be a topic that I'm interested in.
I thought Porcus was replying to a request for source code and suggesting the OP also look at CUETools' source code.

Is the source code for cue corrector available anywhere?

And an English version of the website...
By now you could also consider CUETools [edit: if your point is to get .cue out of an EAC log as per topic title]. Source code on github.

How is this done using CUETools exactly? Every time I try to use the "Create CUE sheet" option, I get a cue sheet that doesn't replicate the gaps correctly at all. The CUETools cue sheet has only INDEX 01 entries and no INDEX 00 entries. Furthermore, it doesn't have the CD-TEXT fields!! I suppose I don't understand how to load an EAC log into CUETools...
CUETools currently cannot create a CUE sheet if all you have is
  • an EAC log
  • an image file
  • an image file + an EAC log

As you already know
CUETools currently can create a simple CUE sheet from a set of track files* or extract an embedded CUE sheet from an image* using the 'Create CUE Sheet' tool.

CUETools currently can create a CUE sheet from a set of track files* and parse an EAC log for gap information using the Action: Encode.
  • If you want a CUE sheet only, you set the 'Audio Output' to 'None'.
  • If you want to fill the CUE tags (CD-TEXT) using only the tags from the audio files, remove the check from the 'Edit Tags' box. Leave the box checked to search CTDB for metadata.
  • Filenames in the CUE sheet are determined by the 'Audio Filenames' setting in CUETools
  • The EAC log should be in the same folder as the track files*

Support - (fb2k) / Unrecoverable playback error again. Nothing helps.
Last post by Sunwalter -

I have bought audio interface Native Instruments Traktor Audio MK2.
And foobar 2000 stopped to play music. Shows info: Unrecoverable playback error: Audio data format not supported by this device.

I have checked solution in the internet and on the forum that need to change Output device in Preferences, but it didn't solve the problem.
I have also check in control panel of audio interface, there is no possible to switch sample rate and bitrate mode. It's ony 48 kHz, 24 bit.

All sounds in Windows works well. I can watch YouTube, play games without problem, even Windows media player and WinAMP plays music without problem. So looks like the problem in Foobar. How can I solve my problem?

Foobar 2000 version: v1.3.17
General - (fb2k) / Re: Videoless MP4 conversion possible?
Last post by asscrab -
Hi there. I have same problem, need to convert youtube video to audio. I convert youtube videos to mp3 usually with Youtube source and Lame and it works pretty well. This is for vlogs / talking videos, so coverting lossy-to-lossy doesn't matters.
But I want to make process a bit faster, so demuxing is better idea.

I made conversion pattern. After finish foobar returns the error
Code: [Select]
1 out of 1 tracks converted with major problems.

Source: ""
  An error occurred while transferring attached pictures (invalid box/atom header) : "E:\watchv=neE_IZYhpjs.mp4"

Also, file 5-minute file is 37 MB, too big for audio. What's wrong?

Thanks , i set external sources manualy and all works, just wanted to know if there is still preconf. versions for download or not..

Since version 2.3 component has only "standalone" package. Alternative to "preconf" package is "Managed" Source in Third-party binaries list. You can find details in 2.3 changelog.

All clear, thank you for your answer.
