Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Using Monkey\'s as front end for FLAC?

I read here:

http://flac.sourceforge.net/documentation.html#monkey  (bottom of pag)

.. that you can use Monkey's as a front end for FLAC by playing with the files.

What does this mean?

"copy flac_mac.exe on top of"

I have the file flac_mac.exe .. but what does it mean to "copy on top of"

I tried replacing and a few other things, but no dice.

Using Monkey's GUI for FLAC is kludgy at best. Have you tried FLACDrop?

I d/l'ed it, and can use it if you say that's the way to go.

I like Monkey's interface.

Do you know what that phrae 'copy on top of' means?

example:

Shorten - copy flac_mac.exe on top of External/shortn32.exe

means:

kill shortn32.exe
rename flac_mac.exe to shortn32.exe


anyway, while I like the Monkey's GUI quite a lot, I have to agree with layer3maniac's shameless plug    for his FLACdrop program.. that's the way to go if you don't like flac frontend.


while we're talking about it anyway: I want to thank layer3maniac for his cool drag&drop interfaces, I am one happy flacdrop/musedrop user 
A riddle is a short sword attached to the next 2000 years.

Oh, they mean 'rename as' duh. Haven't had my coffee today.

If you guys say Flacdrop is the way to go, I'm there.

Is this the one you mean?

No. You can get FlacDrop at my site, in the Programs -> Others page.
