Thread: Issue With Converter On OSX (filenames with special characters)

    Issue With Converter On OSX (filenames with special characters)

    When trying to convert a lot of ALAC files to Opus for potable playback, I receive an error on any file with special characters in the name. Is there a fix or a way around this? Thanks

    Error converting to Opus, '/Volumes/Media/Music/DeepChord - dc13-dc14-dc16 [remastered]/07. dc16 ''Lama Temple''.m4a' to '/Volumes/Media/Converted/DeepChord-2014-dc13|dc14|dc16/07-dc16 "Lama Temple".opus'

    Thanks for the report. Bug acknowledged (it is limited to Opus encoding as far as I can see). A fixed version will be available shortly.


    Running away from Windows / fb2k, are we? :B

    Thank you Peter. If anyone else is struggling with this issue at the moment a work around is to download name mangler and batch remove all the difficult characters from the files before encoding.

    Yes, running far far from Window and into something more producing. Difficult without FB2K though - a learning curve, lets say.
