Quick question - does anyone have (or can anyone build) a script which will decode all 1.2.1-FLAC files in a given folder structure, and reencode at 1.3.0, preserving metadata/tags? I always use the strongest possible compression so would be interested in doing this, even if the disk space saved would be miniscule.

To answer this question, the flac command line tool can do this. Just use 'flac -f file.flac' to re-encode the FLAC file while preserving all tags. To do this with a whole folder would be 'flac -f *.flac', with a whole folder of folders of flac files 'flac -f */*.flac' and so on.

Or, on Linux / OS Ⅹ / Unix:

CODE
$ find . -type f -iname '*.flac' -exec flac -f --best '{}' ';'

Is flac -f safe? Or can it mess up the transaction under e.g. write errors?

flac -f writes to a temporary file, before overwriting the original.

I guess you should use it with -V to check that the encoding went right. It transcodes to a temporary file (file.flac,fl-ac+en'c), and when finished, it removes the original and renames the new file.

Which makes sense, because a lossless codec should be as safe as possible. The command line tools have been designed with the same goal.

For restless, it arrived: http://downloads.xiph.org/releases/flac/

For normal people, it should be formally announced in next day or two

This is the build I tested this morning, which is current git plus the two UTF-8 patches by case. This one is without the long line patch though.

Please, is there any chance to get a GCC build of the release as well ? smile.gif

Yeah, sure, but you haven't told me yet why the Visual Studio build isn't good enough. It isn't faster (yes, I actually tested that), only a little bigger. http://www.icer.nl/misc_stuff/flac-1.3.0-final-minGW.zip

Because:
I want to do some tests and comparisons between different builds.
I find the GCC builds slightly faster than the MSVC2010-2012 builds on my main multimedia machine which is still running XP. It's about the same speed as MSVC2008 builds though (Dj vu).
I'm often moving and changing location and the GCC builds can run out of the box on any machine I may work on, including older Windows versions, without the need to find and install the required runtimes which is sometimes impossible to do if the machine has been locked by some admin.

Anyway, thanks for this build, it's working like a charm as expected smile.gif

I wonder why the download links on the Xiph website aren't updated yet? I only ever use FLAC in two programs - Foobar and EAC, and both work with FLAC 1.3.0 so that's fine for me.

I'm looking for a 64-bit Linux build for my Linux Mint system. Possibly just a standalone static linked build, that would be fine (of course a .deb would be the best).
However, I cannot find a Flac 1.3.0 version for a Debian-based system. Does anyone here know how I can get one?

Thanks!

I had to download the flac amd64, libflac8 amd64 and libflac8 i386 build. Now, I have flac 1.3.0 available on the command line.

Since (A) this thread was meant for discussion about the pre-release, not the final, and (B) its usually suboptimal for both readers and staff to have multiple discussions open about one specific subject, I think this thread should be closed in favour of the final-specific thread in Validated News. If no one presents any valid objection in the near future and everyone can get the loose ends of discussion tied up, Ill do just that.

I would split this, but then, yknow, wed still have two threads. Neither can I merge the relevant posts with the other thread as the first of them predates the opening post over there, and anyway, birdie made an effort to submit that thread to News, so its polite to let birdie retain authorship of it. Ill consider merging in some of the later posts from here but can make no promises; that sort of thing can get very confusing. tongue.gif

Naw, this thing should have been closed once it was released.
