HI there.. I am trying to compress a 2gig wav file fomr a gig of ours and Monkey Audio is just erroring every time and creating a 2kb file....

Any ideas?

I can make a OGG and a FLAC easy enough..... but I always have used monkey so I am not sure why it is not working...

Any ideas?

Probably the file is too large for the Monkey encoder to handle. Why not see that as an opportunity to switch to FLAC?

Can you convert the FLAC to MAC?

From MACLib.h:

CODE
    //    int nMaxAudioBytes
    //        the absolute maximum audio bytes that will be encoded... encoding fails with a
    //        ERROR_APE_COMPRESS_TOO_MUCH_DATA if you attempt to encode more than specified here
    //        (if unknown, use MAX_AUDIO_BYTES_UNKNOWN to allocate as much storage in the seek table as
    //        possible... limit is then 2 GB of data (~4 hours of CD music)... this wastes around
    //        30kb, so only do it if completely necessary)

So indeed Monkey's Audio cannot encode files that bigger than 2 GB.
