The Windows 7 Taskbar features should be back now

(This also means that you'll need the Platform SDK v7.1 to compile LameXP now, at least if you want the Taskbar features to work)

Due to a stupid mistake of mine, in the Build #132 encoding didn't work at all. Unfortunately even the auto-update will fail with the "problematic" build

So in case you get an NSIS install error during update, which complains that the access to the TEMP folder was denied, then you will have to download/install the new build manually this time.

The problem should be fixed in Build #136, at least I hope so. Moreover another installer issue, which caused the installer to launch in background, has been resolved.

So you mean you edit the meta data of some file on your list, close the edit dialog and when you re-open the edit dialog the changes have been lost?

If so, what if you don't re-open the edit dialog and just proceed to the encode? Will the encoded files contain the meta info you entered?

[EDIT]

If you mean that you completely exit LameXP after editing the meta data but before starting the encoding process, then your changes will be lost for sure.

That's because LameXP won't save your edits when you terminate the program. The meta data will be "saved" by embedding it into the encodes files ^^

It's to early to start translating at this time, because a lot of things are still unfinished and bigger changes might happen.

But I'll yet you know when I'm ready to accept translations...

no I'm meaning that i edit some things like comment and position to "not specified" but on exiting from lamexp those changes were lost, while the un-check on playlist and metadata seems to be stored...
also I would suggest a rename pattern field, to generate the namefile by metadata.

As explained above, if you edit the meta data that has been read from your source files but then exit LameXP without actually running the encode, your edits are "lost".

The one and only method to "save" you edits is starting the encode, because then the edited meta data will be written to the encoded files...

That makes a lot of sense. And it's on my TODO list

WMA decoding should work now. Unfortunately "wmawav.exe" neither handles Unicode filenames nor does it report progress information.

(If anybody knows a better command-line tool to decode WMA files to Wave, please tell me!)

Hey Mulder.

Love the program, used it for a couple of years now as it's great at simple conversion.

I now have a need to convert about 1700 songs from FLAC to MP3, which your program does great. These are in separate album folders. Last time I attempted this was with version 3.18 H2, and it didn't keep the directory structure when writing the MP3 files, so all the files ended up in one directory. Correctly named, but a nightmare organising the files.

Does version 4 have this or not?

It doesn't. At least not yet. However this doesn't mean it can't be added, but I don't have a good idea how to do it at the moment

Assuming we have the full paths of various source files as well as the full path of the destination folder, how to figure out which segment of the source path to append to the output path?

Always appending the full source file path (except for the drive letter, of course) to the output path might not be the best idea.

If the paths of all source files have a common prefix, it might make sense to ignore that prefix and only keep the part of the paths that differs. But that isn't that trivial to implement

(At least the "keep it simple and stupid" solution, always append the full path, would be straight forward to implement. But an exam will prevent me form coding the next 2 days)

Holidays? Isn't that the time where you finally get a chance to do all the pending work that has aggregated?

@topic: FLAC support has been added.

@Request: Would it be difficult or impossible to add "midi to wav", as I've some midi files to convert to mp3. I had to apologize that I do not know whether there is such 'convert midi to wav' apps. Anyway, I use some recording function from a apps and save it in wave format, then use your app to encode into MP3 format. Thought I could save my time if Your apps could do such wonders .

Nah, Holidays is for 'Holiday pending works' while usual pending works is for the usual 'boring' days .

Thanks and Do enjoy Your Holidays with your 'Holiday pending works' .

MIDI files don't store audio signals. They store "notes". More specifically MIDI files store control instructions for instruments, like keyboards or synthesizers or drum-computers.

Consequently you cannot "convert" MIDI files to Wave. What you can do is using your sound-card as synthesizers and feed the MIDI instructions to it in order to "execute" the MIDI file.

That's what actually happens when you "play" the MIDI file in a media player. And of course the synthesizer's (sound card's) output could be "captured" to a Wave file.

However I'm not aware of a suitable CLI tool to integrate into LameXP that does both, use your sound card to "play" the MIDI file and "capture" the output as PCM data to a Wave file.

If you could point me to such a tool, I could integrate it into LameXP. Still the result would vary between different systems, as different systems use different sound cards...

(BTW: If you wonder why the web-site is down, it's because the web-hoster claimed the site caused too much load, although only 14 of 100 GB traffic have been used this month)

LameXP has always been "portable" in the way that the EXE file works "out-of-the-box" with no "installation" necessary.

The LameXP installer essentially is an SFX archive. The only exception (at the moment) is the optional WMA Decoder, which needs to be installed locally.

By the way: With the latest build encoding from Multichannel sources to MP3 should work now (thanks to SoX).

Today I implemented support for AC-3 and DTS sources

Also a stupid mistake, which caused LameXP to complain if less than 222 GB of free diskspace are available, has been fixed. Of course this should be 2 GB

222GB... I have partition my hdd to lesser amount, no harm with that complain, just annoying . Guess U have study too much, need a good new pair of spectacle or magnifying glass, just like me .

Just for your info, about the detail info from the windows explorer view I complain, it is working as it is in Win7. Guess my Vista have limitation or some bugs. So sorry for my previous post about it.

Thanks and have a great day rest, especially U might be preparing for next coming exams .

Of course 222 GB was used for testing only, so I could trigger the warning dialog without actually having to lower my diskspace to 2 GB

This should have never gone into a "public" build, but I just forgot to change the threshold value back to 2 GB before I released the "problematic" build.

It has been fixed in the latest build, so never mind!
