I checked again, you were right. That m-TAGS does not allow to attach a picture to the link with the end .flac, but your component allows.
Everything works great!
@Case, please also consider the possibility to use the feature "Linked meta (field for inline editing)" in CUI for editing TAG fields directly from the playlist for External Tags.

Thanks!

General - (fb2k) / Re: foobar2000 v1.4.1 beta 3+4 replay gain scanning

I now performed the scanning speed test with reboots between the sessions. 1.3.20 RG scanned the test album at 739.60x realtime speed, 1.4 at 723.57x speed and 1.4.1b4 at 735.46x speed. Once the album is cached the scan speed is a bit over 3000x realtime speed with all the versions. These speeds are so close to each other that I'd say any differences are caused by random background activity.

If you do find a scenario where the new version indeed is slower, please post details.

But during playback, the behavior of these items is different at playlist. For items of External Tags the contents $meta(genre), $info(tagtype), $meta(url) are missing

External Tags returns what the decoder returns. That's the same output you'd get from unwrapped stream. But I changed that for the next version.

One more question: m-TAGS can not attach the picture for the same link when the External Tags has already attached the picture?
(I get an error: "Attached picture editing failure on "D:\RadioPlaylist\Intense Radio.tags": Access denied"
You're sure you aren't attempting to use m-TAGS to work on a link wrapped behind the exttag:// protocol? My component shouldn't affect .tags files in any way.

If you replaygain scan albums you have just replaygain scanned and you are not low on memory, the files will be in Windows' cache and you have just eliminated all disk access delays. If the data is on a regular mechanical hard drive fragmentation for example can slow things down terribly.

I just tested ReplayGaining a test album in 1.3.20, 1.4 and 1.4.1 beta 4 and 1.3.20 was the slowest. 1.4 and 1.4.1 beta had the same speed. This was not tested after careful rebooting though so the results are for cached material.

One thing that could slow down 1.4 and newer versions is the on-by-default downsampling for hi-resolution audio. But that's at least not the case for mjm716 since mp3s don't support that.

Also if you use True Peak scanning picking a slow resampler will certainly affect things. Use SoX or PPHS normal quality for fastest results.

I think tag troubles are quite off-topic in this thread. But I'm quite positive Peter hasn't changed how "jazz" is displayed in the formats that use hard-coded lists for common genres.

General - (fb2k) / Re: Reading codec info in some video files

Ok, here is my second attempt to offer brutal solution :D
1) Enter
Code: [Select]
chcp
in windows command line. Remember digital value from it. (for example, in my case this is 866)
2) Add all video files to fb2k' s playlist.
Select all, use foo_texttools to copy text with command
Code: [Select]
"D:\0__CODECS\FFmpeg\ffprobe.exe" -v error -select_streams v:0 -show_entries stream=width,height -of csv=s=x:p=0 "%path%" >"c:\resolutions\%list_index%.txt"
(use your path to ffprobe.exe)
3) Create somewhere empty txt file with any name.
Open it with Notepad++
Set code page to the same you got with chcp command (in my case this is Encoding->Character set->Cyrillic->OEM 866).
Then paste results from foo_texttols, save, close.
Change extension from txt to bat.
4) Create folder "resolutions" on disk C.
5) Run bat file you got in paragraph 3.
It will create many txt files in folder resolutions.
6) In this folder create bat file with command
Code: [Select]
copy /b "*.txt" out.txt
and run it. File out.txt will be created in the same folder.
6) Open out.txt, remove last ampty line, select all, copy.
7) Add all your !.tags files to fb2k's playlist and do sorting to the same order as video files.
Select all, go to Properties->Tools->Automatically fill values (Source: Clipboard: line per track, Pattern %width%x%height%)

(If all paths to video files contain only ASCII characters, you can skip changing code page in Notepad++)
