View Full Version : Question about ALAC

Hello! I have a question with regards to dBpoweramp. I own Reference 14.4 and would like to rip all of my audio in a lossless format. Since I am an iPod, iPad and iTunes user, I am naturally looking to do this in Apple Lossless.

Now, it is my understanding that Apple open sourced ALAC a few years ago, however, before that time another open source solution was being used, and I remember reading that some people were having playback problems on their devices--songs were skipping, etc. I'd hate to rip all of my content only to have my music skip. So, my question is, does anyone still suffer from issues like this while using the ALAC encoder in dBpoweramp, or is this something I shouldn't worry about? I thought about using the CLI Encoder with iTunesEncode, but that's just a pain to set up.

Since R14.3 we use Apples own code.
