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.

Thanks greynol!
When i tried to re-encode one of my older FLAC album from 1.1.3 to 1.2.1 the re-encoded FLAC sounded/looked the same as the original to me, but it's size was 2-3MB smaller.
I don't think that there is a problem with my computer, but i think i will Archive my older FLAC albums as they are, i don't know how to spot corrupted files and i want to be safe.
Do you guys worry about older FLAC versions in your own files too, or am i overreacting? smile.gif

It need not be due to the upgrade from 1.1.3 -- it could also be due to the files having been compressed in a faster mode, like -5 or -0. That is, it could have been a similar improvement for converting from 1.2.1 to 1.2.1 where you reencoded with -8 or --best.

According to the changelog, 1.2.x encodes like 1.1.4, which encodes better than 1.1.3, which is like 1.1.1.

I recently converted my 1.1.x FLACs to 1.2.1 because the way my foobar2000 layout would list my codecs. For a selection there would be a long list of FLAC versions before starting on the MP*s and WMA's, and I was bored with scrolling. I am still left with FLAC 1.2.1 and 1.2.0, but now I can actually select an artist and see if I have other formats, without allocating large screen space to file info.

What I did, was
(1) Make a foobar2000 playlist of the files-to-be-converted
(2) Backup (I have an offsite backup, so it was rather: ensure backup was current).
(3) Convert with overwrite and verify
(4) From playlist in (1) and backup in (2), use foo_bitcompare to verify that the new files contained precisely the same audio.
