    QAAC CLI Encoder errors.

    I made a qaac.exe cli encoder script, everything seems fine, yet i get this one persistent error.

    Code:
    Error converting to CLI Encoder, 'Y:\Adele\2008-19\12-Hometown Glory.flac' to 'd:\aacout\Adele\2008-19\12-Hometown Glory.m4a'
       Error writing audio data to StdIn Pipe  [clEncoder::EncodeBlock]

    The script is as follows.

    Code:
    [codec]
    .m4a
    qaac.exe
    
    [msgifnoencoder]
    Before using this encoder a seperate component must first be installed from https://sites.google.com/site/qaacpage/ .

    Re: QAAC CLI Encoder errors.

    I know very little about QAAC, does it accept data by standard in (that is what you have configured dBpoweramp to do) or by temp files?

    Re: QAAC CLI Encoder errors.

    It accepts data through a pipe. It's very odd, if I pass -o [outfile] -q2 -he -v 128 -

    It will fail.

    If I pass -o [outfile] -q2 -v 128 -

    It will run. If I pass the failing argument in command line with a .wav. It works. It's very peculiar.

    He mode possibly does not work at 128kbps

    Re: QAAC CLI Encoder errors.

    per the encoder it should apply HE to anything except tVBR. The HE encoding can and will be lower than the specified bitrate if over say... 160.

    I'm curious, is there a way to enable debugging that i may see exactly what arguments dbpoweramp is giving the encoder?

    *edit*

    I've appended spaces to every line after arguments yet im still getting errors in the pipe. The same error that is.

    Re: QAAC CLI Encoder errors.

    Ok all problems seem to be fixed now. No stdin errors, HE encoding is working.

    For HE encoding to work at maximum HE quality choose cVBR Highest Quality (-v0 or Slider all the way to the left)

    Code:
    [codec]
    .m4a
    qaac.exe
    
    [msgifnoencoder]
    Before using this encoder a seperate component must first be installed from https://sites.google.com/site/qaacpage/ .

    Thank you for the help guys! Where should i post this so people can easily find it if they want to use qaac?

    How do I use this script with the CLI encoder? I want to try it!

    Re: QAAC CLI Encoder errors.

    Just overwrite everything in CLI Encoder\encoder.txt with my last post. Google qaac and download the latest qaac release and extract into the same folder.

    Alright now THAT IS COOL as heck. I was using a command line before but lost it, this script makes it SO MUCH easier OMG. WOW.

    Thank you for the script, tscolin. Exactly what I was looking for.

    Re: QAAC CLI Encoder errors.

    This works great! Is there a way to make it use the 64 bit QAAC encoder with DB15?

    Re: QAAC CLI Encoder errors.

    The CLI Encoder has a 64 bit version it will work with the 64 bit version of QAAC.
