View Full Version : dMC FLAC sizes differ from standard FLAC executable

I have been trying to create low compression 96/24 FLAC files for my Logitech Transporter, as it struggles sometimes with high resolution FLAC files. If I set compression level to "0", they usually work. I have found that if I use the FLAC 1.2.1 executable from Sourceforge and use the "--compression-level-0" switch, I get files that are larger than the ones that dMC creates at compression level 0. I realize that this difference could be in the tag padding, but the files that are created by the standard FLAC executable play more reliably than the ones I get out of dMC at compression level 0. Are you willing to share what "switches" you use when converting wav files to FLAC? I am confused by the dMC files being smaller. I am using the last of the version 13 reference releases.

We do not use the flac.exe to compress, rather we call the official flac libraries direct. Lossless is lossless.
