I downloaded iTunes64 (newer version) and I used makeportable.cmd to have the versions QTfiles and QTfiles64, as I always do.

However, this new version is smaller and makeportable displays some details and at the end:

No files to process
Everything is Ok

Files: 0
Size: 0
Compressed: 201029448
cannot extract AppleApplicationSupport.msi from installer

Do any friend here have the same problem?
3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Coverflow display
Last post by handleyman -
Hi folks. Does anyone know how (or if) you can make Coverflow display the artist-title image from a radio stream (or even just a pre-loaded station logo)? At present, with a live stream it continues to display the last Library song played. This is made more noticeable when the Artwork window changes to the radio stream art, leaving two different images on display.
General - (fb2k) / Newbie help pls. Unexpected audio format change
Last post by mattwwwww -
I'm new to FB2K, it's a great program, so incredibly versatile.

I'm trying to join (concatenate) several mp3's into a single MP3.

I have 2 MP3's off 2 different CDs and 1 MP3 voice track I created with Audacity, like an outro track.

When I try to Convert the 3 tracks together, I get this error:

2 out of 3 files converted with major problems.

Source: "C:\Users\matt\Documents\Music\music track 1.mp3"
  An error occurred while writing to file (Unexpected audio format change) : "C:\Users\matt\Documents\web site\Image.mp3"
  Additional information:
  Encoder stream format: 44100Hz / 2ch / 24bps
  Command line: "C:\Program Files (x86)\foobar2000\encoders\lame.exe" -S --noreplaygain -V 2 - "Image.mp3"
  Working folder: C:\Users\matt\Documents\web site\

Source: "C:\Users\matt\Documents\web site\music\outro.mp3"
  Conversion failed: Unexpected audio format change

If I remove the Audacity track (outro.mp3) the files convert without a problem.

I'm not really sure what to look for, so all help is greatly appreciated.
MP3 - General / Re: GXLame - Low-bitrate MP3 encoder.
Last post by Max9000 -
For successful mp3 bit-rates below 80kbps, you'd need to use the Foobar2000 converter with
advanced limiter + Resampler PPHS (click ultra too)

With the bitdepth resampler, a setting of 32000 opens up bitrates under 80kbps, or
With the bitdepth resampler, a setting of 22050 opens up bitrates under 48kbps
That is true of most codecs; with the major difference that GXLame doesn't cut-off the treble. 

The default -V20 is problematic.  Lowest useful is -V26 (in my opinion).  At -V26 or higher, my dynamics problem evaporated. 

GXLame makes possible bitrates under 48kbps still similar to tape/FM quality.  So, it is possible to put so many hours/days/weeks/years of audio into your phone that it would not be able to index the contents.  I have not seen AAC/M4A make such an achievement.
CD Hardware/Software / Re: Unable to use Musicbrainz with EAC under Wine
Last post by pioneerate -

To connect my Pioneer drive to EAC, when I click on Configuration Wizard it says, "EAC detected the following CD drives in your system. Please select which drives EAC should autoconfigure."

It has only one checkmark which I suppose is my Pioneer drive, but it doesn't say the name of the drive. When I proceed, an Error Message pops up that says, "EAC couldn't find a CD in the drive to be tested..."

So I'm having trouble making the EAC even read my CD (not sure if it's even connected to the CD drive).

FLAC / Re: EAC v. 1.5 Automatic FLAC Conversion after Rip Doesn't Work
Last post by partialresponse -
Never mind. I got it to work - the problem was I specified the file location using a network location \\diskstation\music\ for saving ripped .wav files. The .wav files would be saved there with no problem but flac.exe couldn't find that location and said nothing about that. Problem was solved by mapping \\diskstation\music\ to a Windows letter drive (e.g., Y:\). Took me several hours to track this down. Hopefully it saves someone some trouble.
