View Full Version : DMC Scripting and m4a

01-07-2006, 12:37 PM
I downloaded the m4a(FAAC CLI) codec and am now able to create m4a files; however, when I try to run it from C++ (BCB) , I get the following error message:

"Unable to create compression CODEC 'm4a(FAAC CLI)', please check software installation"

Any suggestions?!

Can you run the codec from dMC itself manually? I believe you have to run it manually first to set the compression settings, and THEN use scripting to repeat those settings afterwards.

Yes, I can run it manually.

Have you ran it manually before now, or is this your first time running it manually? If its your first time running it manually, try your script again. If it still doesn't work, I'll move this thread to the Developer forum, where you should be able to get more scripting help.

I've run the converter manually using the m4a codec several times, and it still refuses to work from BCB -- Note: I've had no problems with Wave or Mp3 (lame).

the relevant line of code is:;

Converter.GoConversion(bstrDeviceName, 1, 1, 1, 1);

where bstrDeviceName is set to "m4a(FAAC CLI)". I assume (?!) that the value to use is the same as that displayed by the converter console,

Moved to Developer forum.

>"m4a(FAAC CLI)".

Should be

"m4a (FAAC CLI)"
