Title: EAC command line options for FLAC
Post by: neuron132 on 2004-07-06 14:59:13
I am encoding to FLAC with EAC, but I would like to increase the amount of compression.  I know that I need to add -8 in the command line, but I'm not sure where.  These are my current command line options:

-T "artist=%a" -T "title=%t" -T "album=%g" -T "date=%y" -T "tracknumber=%n" -T "genre=%m" %s

Where should the -8 go (if this is indeed correct to get the maximum compression)?

--best %s -T title="%t" -T artist="%a" -T date="%Y" -T genre="%m" -T album="%g" -T tracknumber="%n" -T libid="CALU"

Thanks.  I notice that you have put title before artist.  Is that necessary?  Also, I'm getting  a "can't open input file"  error with --best added to my options.

What is libid="CALU"?

Looks to me like a custom tag for library ID ... not necessary for encoding

Here's mine...

%s -6 -T "artist=%a" -T "title=%t" -T "album=%g" -T "comment=EAC: flac 1.1>" -T "genre=%m" -T "date=%y" -T "tracknumber=%n"

edit: ...and order after %s -6 shouldn't matter

PS: Does anyone have a CL for ape's using 3.99 w/ ape2 tags?

Here's mine. Works great. --best is the same as -8.

--best -T "artist=%a" -T "title=%t" -T "album=%g" -T "date=%y" -T "tracknumber=%n" -T "genre=%m" %s

Monkey's Audio with APEv2 tags (requires wapet):
3. Set file extension to .ape
4. Locate 'wapet.exe'
5. Use command line %d -t "Artist=%a" -t "Title=%t" -t "Album=%g" -t "Year=%y" -t "Track=%n" -t "Genre=%m" mac.exe %s %d -c4000
note: if mac.exe isn't in search path you need to specify full path for it.
