Hi,


Again the search box never give me results but always give me the first page of subforums. dry.gif

Then i will ask my question here.

I use foobar2k v.9.6.9 as audio player (default)

My music library contains mostly flac files and some lossy files.

My flac files are mostly to latest version (libFLAC 1.2.1 20070917) because they are ripped of my own cds.

But some are in the oldest version such as (libFLAC 1.1.2 20050205) or (libFLAC 1.1.4 20070213).

I want them to last version. What is the procedure I do?

I tried of convert back in wav theses flac files but for each tracks i keep receive this message : "Corrupted flac stream" (with foobar2k). what that means ?

thx for help a novice.


--------------------
foobar2000 v.1.3
FLAC -8 is the best!

I only can think of one reason to worry about different versions of flac files.
There is flake, a compressor that creates flac files that can be used with a compression level up to 12. There are the recent GPU encoders from Gregory Chudov that use some of these features. From compression level 9 on it uses parameters that may create harder to decompress files as standard flac at its maximum of 8. I never liked that idea to much.
If you buy yourself a hardware player that natively decompresses flac you may run in problems with them.

I remember when playing with flake my old Squeezebox was not able to decompress flake encoded files compressed with level 10 and up. I donīt know of any older official flac version that created any trouble with this.
