Have you tried Kid3?

https://kid3.sourceforge.io/
Just checked it out: it cannot edit metadata relating to the streams. It can only edit things like Author, Year of publishing, trackname, etc. It cannot edit the language tags of the audio stream, or suchlike.

Opus / Re: Point of transparency of Opus 1.2
Last post by IgorC -
It's interesting to observe that 4 members have mentioned  Opus@80kbps as point where is hard to spot artifacts for them.
Opus ~80 kbps is roughly equivalent to LAME ~130 kbps (V5)  which lands in an "excellent"  area of quality (MOS 4.5+) http://listening-tests.hydrogenaud.io/sebastian/mp3-128-1/results.htm

So one could say that Opus 80 kbps is "excellent" at least for an average listener.  It's clear that an experienced listeners can spot artifacts at much higher rates.

I never noticed any artifacts at 80kbps though, though I haven't tried to find any either.

I tried it and for me it's 80 kbit.

I'll be honest, I struggled to ABX at 64kbps. 80kbps is enough for me.

80kbps is pretty much my limit as well, can't be bothered listening to killer samples all the time.

I was only suggesting it in case of the weird possibility of a Phillips ADC that encodes HDCD information, however rare that may be.

Opus / Re: Point of transparency of Opus 1.2

God damn Opus is an amazing codec, I hope it continues to improve - although I have no idea how much further it can be pushed. I remember thinking transparency at 128kbps would be an amazing achievement.
isn't it just :-)

I think the biggest thing right now is getting it supported in software and hardware so it can be used more widely. It seems to be the way forward.

I don't use Linux but that program looks great.

I thought SC.tv went away because the admin(s)/owner were tired of running the site.

Guppy seems to have taken a sabatical from the shites, or maybe daddy yelled at him and he took his glowing toys and left.

I would personally start by removing plugins one by one starting with the ones with the oldest dates. once the crashing stops look for the latest versions of the plugins to have removed and added them back one by one.

Hopefully that will narrow down the plugin causing it or fix the problem.
