    Exclamation WMA Lossless Encoder is BROKEN!

    Have files in FLAC.
    Convert them to WAV - no problem
    Convert them to ALL other Lossless formats you offer - no problem.
    Convert them from WAV to WMA Lossless using Windows Media Encoder - no problem.

    Convert them to WMA Lossless using dBPowerAmp - PROBLEM.

    Most files encode fine, but about 10%-15% fail, reliably, every single time.

    I can send the actual files which fail if you would like, but I have narrowed down the only error to the encoding going on in dBPowerAmp using WMA Lossless.

    Thank You

    We reported an encoding issue to Microsofts developers on WMA 10 years ago with a simple example where it fails reliably, they never fixed. WMA is a dead format, you are best choosing a different one.
