Title: Exact Audio Copy V1.4rc5/rc6/final comments and issues

I don't have a twitter account so I can't make comments there. I've already emailed Andre but perhaps someone with a twitter account will link this thread.

Initial test rc5.
The CTDB EAC Plugin (http://cue.tools/wiki/CTDB_EAC_Plugin) wasn't updated to the workaround version found in this topic https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php?topic=113906.0 and the buffer issue wasn't addressed in EAC so the crash still happens when there are too many results for the buffer to handle with the plugin supplied in the installer.

I've only run a couple tests on the 2nd encoder so far.
Encoder#1: FLAC; Encoder#2: LAME
All files are written to the same location.
Ticking 'Add ID3 tag' didn't create tags in the mp3 files created by the second encoder but tagging with 'Additional command line options' worked OK.
edit: I reversed the encoders: Encoder#1: LAME; Encoder#2: FLAC
Ticking 'Add ID3 tag' for Encoder#1 works OK but ID3 tags are also added for Encoder#2 even though that box isn't ticked for that encoder.

I'll run additional tests later and comment.
I haven't looked at the new MusicBrainz plugin yet.

I've only tested flac and lame.exe so far but the only way I've been able to duplicate this is by excluding a %coverfile% tag from the 'Additional command line options' or by removing the tick from 'Add cover image to ID3V2 tag' on the 'ID3 Tag' tab.

There it is.
It was FFmpeg not writing image to flac.

It worked perfectly after I went back to flac.exe and updated command-line.

I may have FFmpeg command-line wrong. 🤔

No. Do not use as final release. I found an issue that will cause the program to freeze.



Edit:
The final release (https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php?topic=118801.0) is out (beta testing is over).
