The only thing hard coded into the encoder and decoder is the resampling quality, which is set at 5. I have made custom builds with this number changed to 10. I don't think the developers will change this behavior soon as they think that 5 is enough, but still internally at the code, it can go up to 10.Any chance of getting a 32-bit build of this package?
This will hopefully fix problems using some iPod shuffle 4G devices with the component and also adds support for the equivalent of on-the-go playlists on the iPod nano 7G.
At the moment it's marked as a beta version, but I'll remove that tag if no problems are reported.
ffmpeg -i input.mkv -af aformat=channel_layouts="7.1|5.1|stereo" -mapping_family 1 -vcodec copy -scodec copy -acodec libopus -map 0 output.mkv
Without the channel_layouts stuff, ffmpeg will fail with an error such as "Invalid channel layout 5.1(side) for specified mapping family -1". Without the mapping_family option, ffmpeg will disable channel coupling and LFE optimization.
The default bitrate is 96k for stereo, 320k for 5.1, and 416k for 7.1. There's no way to change this in a sensible way (e.g. per channel); if you set a bitrate it will apply the same rate to stereo, 5.1, 7.1, etc.
SoX default settings:
Allow aliasing/imaging: No
Phase Response: 50% (linear)
Smart Dither default settings:
Target bith depth: 16 bps
Amount of dither in bits: 1.0 bits
High-pass filter the dither noise: Yes
I've cleared it up a bit from some apps (antivirus, firefox, rainmeter, etc.).
You'll easily find all the foobar stuff and the reported errors.
Having checked several times today, I need to add that in fact the error is not systematic. Actually I thought it was, because maybe it tends to happen "all the time" or "most of the time" when foobar has been running for at least some minutes (usually I leave it running for hours). But just starting foobar and quitting it after a few seconds seems to trigger the error less often.
I don't know what more to add. Feel free to ask for more tests of course.
If the headphones are not loud enough or if you've got an "impedance problem" any headphone amp with line-inputs can be plugged into the existing headphone output (with the appropriate cable-adapters).
Or, you can plug into the "tape outputs" or "recording outputs" if your receiver has them, but these are not volume-controlled so you won't be able to use the receivers remote control for volume. (Bass & treble, EQ, or other controls/adjustments will also be bypassed.)
I don't have a recommendation for you but I'd recommend that you don't spend a lot of money (unless you have lots of extra money and you don't care). The actual electronics for a good headphone amp are cheap & easy so you're mostly paying for the power supply, case, controls, connectors, marketing, etc.
forgotto remove the user from the pillory. I have deliberately not reported it.
