View Full Version : LAME half quality values in tags

When using "half values", e.g. V2.5, both the info pop-up in dBp and the "codec" column in foobar (I haven't tried any other programs) just show the next highest whole number setting (V2 in this case).

Is this just a limitation of the tagging format, in which case maybe it can't be avoided, or is it a (trivial/cosmetic) bug?

PS On a similar theme, I mentioned a while back that mono .m4a files still appear with "Channels: 2 (stereo)" in the dBp pop-up, whereas foobar does correcly identify mono files.

Half value for which tag?

"Encoder Settings" as in dBpoweramp Configuration -> Music Converter -> Windows Explorer Integration -> Enable Pop-up Information tips -> Advanced -> Codec Specific

Yes the lame header cannot distinguish between -v2 and -v2.5
