How come I am unable to read $info(hdcd) from within a WSH panel? Trying to use something like fb.TitleFormat("$info(hdcd)").EvalWithMetadb(fb.GetNowPlaying()) simply doesn't work.

EDIT: Okay, I assume that the WSH simply isn't aware of the HDCD decoding that is going on. Putting fb.TitleFormat("$info(bitspersample)").EvalWithMetadb(fb.GetNowPlaying()) on a HDCD-encoded track yields 16, whereas $info(bitspersample) in the status bar yields 24 (since the status bar is completely aware of HDCD and can also use $info(hdcd) and so on). Can anyone confirm this?

Obviously, WSH panels are unaware of dynamically generated track information, which is updated after the file starts playing.

// Dynamic info (VBR bitrate etc) change

function on_playback_dynamic_info_track() {}

// Called every second, for time display
// time - float value, in sec
function on_playback_time(time) {}


edit: you should try fb.TitleFormat("$info(hdcd)").Eval() rather than EvalWithMetadb.

Oh good, I love when it's merely user error and not a shortcoming in the relevant component.

FWIW, the HDCD remaster of Mike Oldfield's Ommadawn is only semi-HDCD; the indicator light goes off during the last track ('On Horseback') . An odd mastering decision.....

Hmm, having the hdcd decoder plugin active, all my HDCD rips* fail the integrity check. Removing the plugin results in passing.
Is it possible to make the decoder not decode HDCD when running an integrity check? If not, then maybe an option to temporary turn it off to be able to verify the rip.

You mean the AccurateRip verification? They don't show up as decoding failed?

What features are enabled on the last track? As pointed out by someone, it goes on if it goes through a particular processor often found in studios, even when no features are enabled.

No, I mean the integrity verification which decodes the track and compares it with the checksum stored in the file. Obviously, the file contains the checksum of the "redbook version" while hdcd decoder decodes the "hdcd version", so audio checksums don't match.

edit: though I guess it's the same foo_verfier plugin for both integrity and accuraterip. Accuraterip also fails for the same reason...
