FLAC compression levels 8 versus 12 2015-01-15 14:08:13 Why does vidcoder use different compression values than flac.exe? I thought FLAC went from 0 to 8 but vidcoder, which I think uses libavcodec or I've also seen libFLAC has values from 0 to 12. Can anyone explain this to me?(I have been using FLAC for my music forever, basically since it came out or when I was made aware of it. Anyway, I've used the "FLAC Frontend" program for windows as it has always worked quite well for me and it's simple to use. The compression values have always been 0-8. However recently after learning how to and converting some of my blurays from disc to mkv files and trying to save some HDD space using vidcoder CQ18 and FLAC_16bit from the HD codecs I have noticed that the compression value vidcoder uses is 0-12. Thinking I was missing something I went to the command line (of 1.3.1 and ran flac.exe -help and saw that it lists only compression from 0-8. Am I missing something, or does the libFLAC or libavcodec use different values than flac.exe?)Any info is welcome thanks.
