I'm interested in getting the maximum possible compression with FLAC, regardless of encode time. According to the documentation, a setting of up to -r 16 is possible. Yet anything over -r 8 results in an error code for me. Am I missing something?

Why waste the time to do this? Save a few KBytes on a disc? Last week I bought a 3 TB USB3 drive for $99. That's 3.3 CENTS per gigabyte. Each KByte you save will save you 3.3 MILLIONTHS of a penny. Given the way files are stored on the disc you may reap _zero_ savings - same number of clusters used. Obsessive compulsive behavior...... I'm just saying...

Proof of concept for the inquisitive mind.

Exactly. And, I'm limited to 32GB on my FLAC-enabled phone smile.gif

Thanks for the info. I didn't realize -r settings >8 required the --lax setting. I'll stick with 8 then.
