Hi Bryant,

You're my favourite developer... could you address these questions:

1) WavPack uses APEv2 tag format and it comes to the end of file. In some other posts FLAC developer said: "there are disadvantages to tags being at the end which is why it's not done that way in FLAC or vorbis". My question is what are these disavantages and advantages with a tag being at the end OR at the beginning?

2) Is it exceptionally depending on K3B developers for them to support WavPack out of the box, or a plugin could be written? (Aside from being supported with ffmpeg option in compilation).

3) Is it exceptioally depending on Audacity developers for them to support WavPack, too?

4) I've seen Totem crash after playing a WavPack file entirely, what is the cause of this?

5) Can we expect the 1MB tag limitation for binary tag to be overcome in next releases?

6) Can we expect recoding from already encoded WavPack files in next releases?

Thanks!

Fair enough Bryant, and I agree.

Just wanted to know how to make K3B support WavPack on Fedora 14, because, somehow the compilation now is:

mkdir build

cd build
cmake .. (I guess this is to replace "configure" options, but you can't configure anything really)
make install

Do we need an update on this post:
