WavPack needs an x64 filter / decoder
I get better compression ratios with WavPack over FLAC, but ultimately I had to go back to using FLAC exclusively, merely because FLAC has x64 Directshow support.  So I humbly submit to those in the know:  how 'bout some x64 goodness?

(I have to maintain an x64 media chain for boring and complicated reasons, but I assure you it's not just because I think it's 'faster;' many others need them for MCE x64 support, anyway)

ffdshow?

Yes it maybe overkill for your needs but hey, you'd never need to find a codec again.

Good luck, quite a few are unwilling to build anything for 64 bit.

Heck, I have been starting to learn how to compile encoders from source for 64 bit, just because no one is willing to do them OR I haven't found a 64 bit compile of the encoder.

Ah, it used to have WavPack support, but they removed it a few months ago because it was so flaky.  Still would need a x64 source filter, in any event.

Tell me about it... I was considering the same thing a few months ago, but I just didn't have enough time to learn the ropes.  x64 support for playback is getting there, though:  there are regular x64 compiles of MPC-HC and ffdshow now, so almost everything is good to go except WavPack.
