View Full Version : Bug in DMC r10 b7

I get this nasty bug in DMC release10 beta7.

Say I last used the "Convert To" option and converted to FLAC (I didn't try with other codec but I've been able to recreate the problem anytime I want with the FLAC codec).

After all conversions are done, I realise I don't need the FLAC codec anymore (I was simply comparing the different lossless codec for compressability vs. CPU usage on playback) so I uninstalled the FLAC codec. Well, if I try to use the "Convert To" option again, I get an error message saying "Unable to create compression CODEC 'FLAC', please check software installation.", obviously because DMC defaults to last codec used and since FLAC is not installed anymore, it crashes.

An easy way around the problem is to reinstall FLAC, do a dummy conversion using another codec or the test conversion option, then uninstall FLAC again.

But I am guessing a simple check to see if the codec is still installed and then defaulting to a different codec (say WAV or MP3) would do the trick.
