 Feature Requests

 
 by Majik on: Jan 5 2008
 
Score 50%

I have a couple of feature request which I think would improve this already fantastic app:

1. Option to skip existing files

I operate two libraries; 1 in FLAC for high-quality listening and as a reference source, and an MP3 copy for fast transfer to portable devices. I use soundkonverter to create this copy. Every now and then I get some new music and it would be nice to be able to point soundkonverter at the source folder and only create copies of the files which don't exist. This is kinda like a library "sync".

2. Option to transfer external "folder.jpg" album art

As my main library is in flac, most of my album art is held as a "folder.jpg" file within each album's directory (flac only recently supports embedded art, and tagging software has yet to catch up). It would be great it this could be used during the process either to copy the file directly, or to use this to tag the resulting file.


Cheers,

Keith

hi, i implemented an option to skip existing files and the ability to execute a script after every converted file. at the moment i have not much time, if you are skilled at writing bash scripts, feel free to write a copy cover script. the script is launched with the source and destination file as parameters.
i'll need some time to implement this since i'm not very skilled at writing bash scripts.

 quality values

 
 by rom1v on: Jan 8 2008
 
Score 50%

Quality doesn't correspond to quality value of the command-line encoder :
quality 70 is 6.7
quality 72 is 6.92
quality 73 is 7.03

it should be 7, 7.2 and 7.3...

hi, that's intentional. the quality value is meant to be independent from the codec/backend. to see the real quality look at the tooltip.

The quality value can be independant of the codec, but can be "correctly" mapped to the codec parameters.

What is your conversion fonction from quality value to codec value? Why not use f(x)=x/10?

the conversion is linear. oggenc has a quality range from -1 to 10, lame from 9 to 0, and so on. have a look at the plugins for more details.

Hi there,

I got the latest version 0.3.6 but it wouldn't let me add *.mpc files even tho i installed the musepack decoder and it's properly been recognized by sound converter. I can see it in the plugins list. Is this a known bug? Will you provide a fix or should i check myself?
Thanks,
Ron

hi, this could be a mime type problem. could you please tell me what's the mime type of the mpc files your kde recognizes. try right click on the file -> properties -> click the type button -> mime type is shown in the window title.

James, by clicking on the 'Type' button a dialog box with the title '"Edit File Type audio/x-musepack - KEditFileType". I'm not sure if this is the box you're looking for. It gives info like "Filename Patterns", "Description" or "Application Prefernce order". If you're looking for the application preference order soundKonverter is not in there, i only have EasyTAG, Amarok and Kaffeine. I added soundKonverter to this list but there's no change, it still wouldn't recognize *mpc files.

Thanks for your help!

 AIFF format decoding

 
 by RonF on: Feb 23 2008
 
Score 50%

I want to convert AIFF files to ogg vorbis or FLAC. I am running Ubuntu 7.10, Gnome desktop. I am trying and failing to use soundKonverter to do this sort of task. I am trying to make a plugin that makes use of sox as the backend. Frankly I don't know what I am doing, and I don't know XML. I have tried to write a plugin based loosely on the mplayer plugin, but the AIFF decode selection in "Configure soundKonverter" Backends remains empty, and I cannot add any AIFF files to the file list when running soundKonverter. I would sure like some suggestions or help from anyone who knows how to write such a plugin! Anybody using soundKonverter to decode AIFF audio files?

hi, unfortunately it's a little bit complicated at the moment. make sure there's a .desktop file for the aiff format in $KDEDIR/share/mimelnk/<something>/
then go to $KDEDIR/share/apps/soundkonverter/format_infos/ and create a aiff.xml file analogue to the other files.

Thank you very much! Following your suggestions, I have made progress. A question please: what does the size=??? parameter mean in the <data> tag in the format_infos/aiff.xml file I have made? I am not sure what to set it to.

I am getting ogg output, but don't seem to get flac output.

the size option is not so important. it is used to estimate the length of the audio file in order to display a nicer progress bar. it's the file size per second.

Thank you very much. I find it amusing how my Mac OS X friends think that AIFF is THE standard uncompressed format for ripped CDs.

Doesn't EVERYBODY just run iTunes anyway? :)

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
