Thread: CoreConverter can't convert FLAC files with Unicode names

  1. #1

    CoreConverter can't convert FLAC files with Unicode names

    I can't find a good way to process FLAC files that have Unicode names with CoreConverter.exe. The raw names aren't recognized, and short names don't work because CoreConverter determines the audio type exclusively from the file extension, and .FLA isn't a file extension that it recognizes. Please consider fixing this. Thanks.

    It does work:

    Code:
    R:\>"C:\Program Files\dBpoweramp\CoreConverter.exe" -infile="r:\Mp3 - UNICODE FN-&*925;&*943;&*954;&*959;&*962; &*928;&*945;&*960;&*940;&*950;&*959;&*947;&*955;&*959;&*965; - &*924;&*960;&*945;&*947;&*955;&*945;&*956;&*945;&*948;&*940;&*954;&*953;.mp3" -outfile="r:\test.wav" -convert_to="wave"

    Note this forum messed up the unicode filename.

    WHAT...THE...$%@*@%&????

    Where is THAT documented????

    I can't find any "UNICODE" or "FN-" mentioned anywhere in http://www.dbpoweramp.com/developer-cli-encoder.htm

    HOLY CRAP!!!

    Note I can't figure out what the original filename was. Maybe an example with a name that can be displayed here (I'm testing "Björk") would help. Thanks.

    Re: CoreConverter can't convert FLAC files with Unicode names

    The UNICODE FN, is just part of that files filename. If your shell you open (the cmd prompt) is unicode then it will work. How are you calling core converter? from a typed command line?

    Oh, OK. Somehow I thought those had some special meaning. I'm trying to execute CoreConverter.exe from a Perl script, and I now think that the command interpreter is messing up the filename.
