[FLAC-conversition] How do I add the -V (verify) switch correctly?

Hi!

I'm trying to make Foobar use the "-V" option while converting to .FLAC.

I Exact Audio Copy I use these command line options:
-8 -V -T "artist=%a" -T "title=%t" -T "album=%g" -T "date=%y" -T "tracknumber=%n" -T "genre=%m" %s %d

When I try to manually add that into custom conversion I get this error message:

"1 out of 1 tracks converted with major problems.

Source: "XXX.ape"
  An error occurred while finalizing the encoding process (Object not found) : "d:\XXX.flac"
  Conversion failed: Object not found"

What am I doing wrong here?

Thanks you kindly!

-8 -V %s -o %d

...works for me. It creates a temp file instead of using piping. Foobar uses its own tagger and you should not include tagging commands.

You're welcome,

however, I'd like to add that the -V switch can compare only the temporary wave file and the encoded data.

If you want to be absolutely sure that the encoded files contain unchanged audio data you can load the source files and the resulting files to a playlist and run the Binary Comparator tool. Then it would also be unnecessary to include the -V switch (it increases processing time a bit). I do that before I delete the source files when I am converting lossless files to a different lossless format.

The Binary Comparator component is available here: http://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_bitcompare.

Edit: fixed a typo.

thanks once again, just after I posted my previous reply I actually found out about the Binary Comparator Tool. What an excellent feature!

I used it to compare my original .ape files with the new .FLAC-files. It all checked out perfectly, even without the "-V" option.
