 MP4 to FLAC

 
 by RonF on: Apr 3 2008
 
Score 50%

I have a large number of Apple Lossless files left over from an earlier time when I used to use iTunes on a Windows machine. I am attempting to convert them to FLAC, and am using the faad backend in soundKonverter to do this, (I see that this winds up calling ffmpeg!)

Anyway, the conversions appear to be completing successfully, but I have discovered two problems:

1. The genre tag is left blank in the resulting FLAC files.

2. The embedded album art that was in the tag in the original mp4 file is also missing.

The missing album art is not such an issue for me, but the blank genre is a serious problem. The other textual-info tags all seem fine. How do we fix this?

From looking at the XML code, I can see how tag information is assigned to the target files, but I don't understand how the original tag info is pulled from the source files to begin with???

Looking at the log file just says, "Tags successfully read" before the decoding process begins.

Thanks for any help.

the tags are read and written by taglib (if possible). in this case the genre tag can't be read.
i managed it to compile soundkonverter with libmp4v2 now. so if configured with "--with-mp4v2", it will work.
it >should< work without mp4v2 too. but somehow it doesn't.

and album arts can't be neither read nor written at the moment - sorry.

Thank you for responding...

For me, not being able to carry over the artwork from one format tag to another is not a big deal, because I have always kept it as a separate file anyway - associated with each album. The failure to correctly copy over the genre however, is a show stopper.

I tried to build 3.7 in Ubuntu 7.10 - and ./configure failed. I have not been able to determine what I am missing, and that is looking like a bug in Gutsy. Frustrating.

I could not get pacpl to accomplish my conversion task properly either. More frustration.

I think my only option is to wait, or to just do this task under WINE.

ok, i have updated to beta source package now. so you can download it (the last link) and configuring with "--with-mp4v2" should work when you have installed the libmp4v2-devel package.

Thank you very much!

I am trying to build 3.7 on my Ubuntu 7.10 machine, but ./configure is giving me the following error after considerable progress:

config.status: error: cannot find input file: src/patches/Makefile.in

There is no patches folder under src, so that would explain it. Any suggestions?

damn - i deleted the folder before the release. i'll update the source soon. until that you can either search all files for 'patch' and remove the lines.
or try running 'WANT_AUTOCONF_2_5="1" WANT_AUTOMAKE_1_6="1" gmake -f Makefile.cvs' before ./configure

btw. i have updated the ubuntu package. the link above points to the current version now.

 Not in Amarok Gentoo

 
 by mschmarck on: Apr 4 2008
 
Score 50%

Hi.

I installed the media-sound/soundkoverter-0.3.6 Gentoo ebuild on my ~x86 system with media-sound/amarok-1.4.8. At the end of the installation of soundkoverter, the following was shown:

Quote:
* For AmaroK users there is a script included with this package.
* You can enable it with the Script Manager tool in Amarok, after
* installing kde-base/qtruby.


I do have qtruby installed (I installed it just prior to running amarok after having installed soundkonverter).

But where might I find soundkonverter? It's *NOT* shown in the script manager. But there is:

Quote:
mike@system /usr/share/apps/soundkonverter/amarokscript $ ls -la
insgesamt 24
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 3. Apr 23:24 .
drwxr-xr-x 6 root root 4096 3. Apr 23:24 ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1139 30. Apr 2007 README
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 10444 30. Apr 2007 soundKonverter.rb


I suppose that means, that something indeed has been installed for Amarok - but why does the script not show up?

Thanks a lot for any help!


Michael

hi,
please run sounkonverter once and look at ~/.kde/share/apps/amarok/scripts/soundKonverter/
soundkonverter creates/updates these files every time the list of supported file formats changes.

 SuSE-Repository

Is there any way I can import the gpg-key of your repository?

Output from smart on SuSE 10.3:

"gpg failed to import keyid 7d03c235f7e182e7, please make sure that gpg is installed, that the keyserver subkeys.pgp.net is working and that the package /var/lib/smart/packages/soundkonverter-0.3.7-9.1.i586.rpm has a valid signature."

Beside that, sk is simply great, my favourite ripper / en- / decoder by far - thank you!

hi,
the gpg key is set automaticly by the opensuse build service. i haven't looked at it yet. is smart unable to import it? yast does that.
if you want to import it, try rpm --import http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/HessiJames/openSUSE_10.3/repodata/repomd.xml.key that's what the .repo file contains.

No idea why smart couldn't import it (it wasn't able to do on several 10.3s), but anyway, importing it via you rpm-command did the trick and smart knows about the key now. Thank you again!

I'm trying to convert a folder full of MP3's to Q5 OGG's. What settings do I need to use to get q5 in SoundKonverter?

and yes, I already know mp3 > ogg isn't smart, but I need ogg for compatibility reasons.

Thank You,

55 is -q 5,05
i know this is not perfect, i'll probably change that in the next version. if you want exact -q 5 you can use the 'advanced options' and replace %p by your parameters (and then save as profile).

So wouldn't 50 be Q5 then?

Also how come I cant select Stereo when converting to ogg, only mono?

Thanks, for the reply,

the value for the '-q' parameter is calculated based on the quality range of the encoder (oggenc: -1 to 10).
have a look at the tooltip of the quality input field for more infos.

oggenc does not support upmixing. so you can only downmix to mono. just don't check the channel checkbox in order to leave the channels untouched.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
