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.

How to batch convert from WavPack to Thomson MP3 Surround encoder for Linux?

Does anyone know how to get ffmpeg to transcode from WavPack and feed it to Thomson's MP3 Surround encoder, also preserving the tags?

I found it when I was looking for oddball MP3 encoders. It seems to be FhG FastEnc, one of their later versions, and a fully functional encoder for standard 2 channel MP3 files.

I'd say the quality compares favorably to LAME, but I've noticed that it handles things much differently (preferring to use M/S encoding for nearly all frames at 4 of the 5 VBR settings for instance.
