3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: Playlist-Manager-SMP
Last post by regor -
Have updated the repository with a few fixes, the previous improvement with quotes and a few new tools to export playlists (copy playlist file to, copy playlist file +tracks, copy playlist file + convert tracks).
See this:

After setting the DSP, output and TF filename expression, the playlist manager is fully integrated with foobar converter... allowing to export entire playlists (and maintain their order) in one click. Can be used as a 'one way sync' tool for portable players, etc.

I mixed the output of multiple exports steps in the same folder, but you get the idea...
FLAC / Re: New FLAC compression improvement
Last post by Porcus -
-e may adversely affect compression ratio with the above ordering

So the above test runs indicate the opposite: it improves every album, and even at hard settings with the "good order", but - and this is the surprise - it the improvement is near zero at the new build's "-5".
Gut feeling is that the new -5 is the oddball, and in a benevolent way in that it picks up a lot of improvement without resorting to -e or -p

I have very limited experience with -e and -p for this obvious reason:
(plus it is super slow anyway)
On this machine, not so slow as -p, and better (though not for every album; but, bitrates reported by fb2k, I have yet to see -p being more than 1 kbit/s better).
