MP3 / Re: best mp3 encoder with something better than a command line interface?
Last post by Deathcrow -
Samples and ABX tests for my settings will follow, working in progress, but I want to know first about this ATH type. Can you explain me about ATH type 5 please?

That's a pretty meaningless ABX test. You don't need to prove that you can't distinguish a encoded file from the source.

What you should be doing: Post an ABX where you successfully distinguish the (in your opinion) inferior Mp3 with default encoder settings and same bitrate from lossless source. Then you should do ABC/HR tests to show that you can distinguish the two Mp3s from each other and that you consistently rate the one with your snakeoil commandline settings as higher fidelity.

Not to belabor a three month old thread, but holy crap.

Making excuses for the torture and murder of a Washington Post columnist by the Saudis?

It'd be more shocking if it wasn't such "small potatoes" relative to the sheer number of people (>5 million) on the brink of starvation due to the Saudi "coalition" war of aggression upon Yemen (which wouldn't be possible without US/UK midair refueling of the Saudi Air Force, let alone selling them the bombs and ammunition for their US-made warplanes).

Luckily, the Georgia Secretary of State (Republican, naturally) is running for governor whilst simultaneously expunging the voter rolls of 107,000 registered voters.

These guys :(

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: Spider Monkey Panel
Last post by loz -
I have the following code in ratings.txt to set ratings using keyboard shortcuts:
Code: [Select]
function on_main_menu(index) {
switch (index) {
case 1: // set rating File>Spider Monkey Panel>1 is run
panel.metadb.SetRating('$if2(%smp_rating%,0)') == 1 ? 0 : 1);

This, and every variation I have tried crashes foobar instantly. Now I'm assuming it's either something with my configuration or my code since I pretty much modified what I had in js_panel, but just in case it's something with spider monkey I thought I'd the thread aware this is happening. (Crash reports and full code attached if needed). Thanks.
Opus / Re: Opus gapless and glitchness encoding
Last post by Rollin -
And here i'm repeating test again. This time i use opus 1.3 final --bitrate 256   (build from 1st post in this thread) with 48 kHz source files which are pre-highpassed in Audacity (Nyquist highpass filter: 10 Hz, 48 dB per octave) (source file was highpassed, then split  to tracks, so no clicks due to highhpass). So we can be sure that reason of click is not highpass filter in opus and even not resampler.
file "Image orig.wav": original files "01. Track number 1 16.wav" and "02. Track number 2 16.wav" merged using fb2k
file  "Image opus.wav": files "01. Track number 1.opus" and "02. Track number 2.opus" decoded with opusdec (all default settings) and then merged with fb2k
Original files "01. Track number 1 16.wav" and "02. Track number 2 16.wav" are included.
