    Re: QAAC CLI Encoder errors.

    After reading https://github.com/nu774/qaac/wiki/E...-configuration I think your tvbr values choises are more logical. Sample Rate is a useful option though. Here is my new encoder.txt version (with some cosmetic/explenations improvements in my opinion) :

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

    Can you try to open a command prompt and run
    "C:\Program Files\dBpoweramp\encoder\CLI Encoder\qaac64.exe" --check

    Re: QAAC CLI Encoder errors.

    ERROR: CoreAudioToolbox.dll: Le module spécifié est introuvable.

    Thank you it let me understand the problem and find the solution. There is two versions of CoreAudioToolbox.dll; 32 and 64bits. CoreAudioToolbox.dll 64 can be installed by installing AppleApplicationSupport64.msi which is harder to find than AppleApplicationSupport.msi. Last version is included in iTunes 12.1 (but not in Itunes 12.1.1 neither in Quicktime 7.7.6...thank you Apple...). qaac64.exe 64 need 64bits version of CoreAudioToolbox.dll and qaac.exe 32bits version of CoreAudioToolbox.dll.

    Works perfect with my encoder.txt above (just change qaac by qaac64).

    Thank's again !

    Re: QAAC CLI Encoder errors.

    After using it a little, I don't see reason to deactivate default m4a optimization (Am I wrong ?). Moreover the encoder support up to 8 channels and I didn't found frequency limitation. Here is my new (last ?) encoder.txt version, if it can interest someone...(no need to "-q2" too which is the default encoder behaviour)
    Code:
    [codec]
    .lossy.wav
    lossyWAV.exe
    
    [msgifnoencoder]
    Before using this encoder a seperate component must first be installed from http://www.hydrogenaud.io/forums/index.php?showtopic=107081&st=0 . Separate component http://www.fftw.org/install/windows.html can be installed to increase processing speed.

    By the way, (Spoon are you here ? ), I think it were nice to have a place where we can found "official" version of encoder.txt for encoder not provided in codec central. It could simply be a link from codec central with last encoder.txt provided by "community".

    Re: QAAC CLI Encoder errors.

    I have tried the script in batch conversion with 8 CD and 6 live (every live 3 hour), at the end I obtain errors on 3 live files:

    Error converting to CLI Encoder, 'Y:\BACKUP\Music\FLAC\... .flac' to 'C:\Users\Marco\Desktop\TEMP\... .m4a'
    Error writing audio data to StdIn Pipe [clEncoder::EncodeBlock]

    Why?

    Re: QAAC CLI Encoder errors.

    Perhaps they are a bit rate or sample rate not supported by QAAC

    Re: QAAC CLI Encoder errors.

    I do love your scripts as I'm not very good with this kind of stuff myself... But I do miss one thing though, why not include --alac? The script includes every other option besides Apple Lossless (ALAC) so why not add that one as well? I managed to add it myself doing some hobby modding of the script above but I have no real clue on how to make the actual button fit so I currently have a Apple Lossless option at about the same position as the CBR one.

    Another I would love to see is the possibility to choose between outputting into M4A or M4B. Currently it will only output into M4A which make sense but it would be stellar to be able to override it with M4B for ripping of audiobooks so one don't have to do that manually afterwards. Any why not include a preset that is identical to Apples own "iTunes Plus" which should be cVBR v256 -q2, I'm not entirely sure if that would be identical to choosing CVBR 256 kbps.

    Re: QAAC CLI Encoder errors.

    Nevermind.. I can't get it to work at all. I just tried to test rip CD01 of a audiobook using multi-encoder -- CLI Encoder in order to get 1x QAAC Apple Lossless, 1x QAAC tVBR, 1x QAAC cVBR, 1x QAAC ABR and 1x Apple Lossless (the default one within dBPowerAMP) and the only one actually working the the built in one. All the QAAC ones just resolved in 0 bytes files.

    Re: QAAC CLI Encoder errors.

    I have tried to dig a little bit deeper and I'm also getting the same "CLI Encoder: Error writing audio data to StdIn Pipe [dEncoder::EncodeBlock]" error. I have tried using both qaac.exe and qaac64.exe, but it doesn't make any difference. I have also tried using Folder and Dynamic folder within dBPowerAMP without any luck. I've got both iTunes (12.2.0.145) and QuickTime (7.7.7 (1680.95.51) installed.

    QAAC itself is working, I've verified using CMD.exe to manually convert a WAV(E) track to AAC using ALAC, CVBR, TVBR and ABR without any issues. It seems like there is some kind of issues in regards to the -o "[outfile]" but I don't really know why and how to deal with it.

    Re: QAAC CLI Encoder errors.

    Seems to be a dBPowerAMP 15.3 bug, reverted to 15.1 and it's working.

    Re: QAAC CLI Encoder errors.

    Enable debugging for both R15.3 and R15.1 (in dBpoweramp Configuration >> Music Converter tab), then convert and compare the log files.

    Re: QAAC CLI Encoder errors.

    Any chance of a qaac plugin? Sometimes it would be nice to just click and install and be able to use the iTunes encoder with db. I am have errors and trying to remember how I made it work before. It should not be this difficult.

    Re: QAAC CLI Encoder errors.

    Today I try this script again. I copy the script above inside encoder.txt and I put the QAAC64.exe file (and other 3 files) in the same encoder.txt folder but the conversion dosn't work: Error writing audio data to StdIn Pipe [clEncoder::EncodeBlock]

    What I do wrong?
