Support - (fb2k) / Re: Thread count for the converter should be selectable from the converter window
Last post by VEG -
Oh, it seems that converting to a folder on an SSD and copying files from the folder to a flash drive is really much faster (maybe 5 times faster) than just single-threaded encoding to the flash drive. It would be nice if the converter was able to handle such cases automatically. As far as I understand the issue with low speed is caused by the reason that converter writes data using very small chunks of data. Probably, some buffering and writing bigger amounts of data at once will make it faster.

Support - (fb2k) / Thread count for the converter should be selectable from the converter window
Last post by VEG -
I think that it would be much more convenient if thread count for the converter was selectable from the converter window. For example, when you convert some music to a slow external flash drive, it takes much less time when foobar2000 does it in just one thread. But when I convert from my SSD to SSD, it is faster when foobar2000 uses all the CPU cores. It would be nice to have an ability to control it without opening advanced settings.

Support - (fb2k) / Re: %CONTENT GROUP% mapping error
Last post by j7n -
This tag mapping is confusing now in Beta 17.

With Advanced -> Tagging -> Vorbis & FLAC -> Compatible with old Foobar versions:-  Writing GROUPING into a FLAC, is read back as CONTENT GROUP. Writing to CONTENT GROUP then is written to CONTENT GROUP literally. Not possible to add a field named "Grouping". Not exactly compatible because the field Grouping is forcibly renamed on tag update. Better skip remapping entirely in this compatibility mode, or always use Grouping, as in the other mode.

With Advanced -> Tagging -> Vorbis & FLAC -> Compatible with various software:- Writing GROUPING into a FLAC, is read back as CONTENT GROUP. Writing to CONTENT GROUP is written to GROUPING. Effectively Content Group becomes a new alias to Grouping. This is fine.

In APEv2, no special mappings occur, and it is possible add and read both fields.

In my opinion new mappings defined today should be the same for both Vorbis and Ape, so that it is possible to use %whatever% on a mixed set of FLAC/TAK/WV/Vorbis/MPC files, and get a consistent result without $if(...). The linked table says that Ape and Vorbis should be the same for this field.

I don't personally use Grouping for genre/style. But I am discouraged to start using it now on a mixed collection.

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.
