I have some tracks in APE format and I want to convert them to OGG by using Lancer's optimized Oggenc v2.83. MAC.exe is in the same directory as oggenc2.exe. When I run the conversion, it ends up like this:

CODE
c:\sk>oggenc2 -b 128 "Big Time.ape"
--- Monkey's Audio Console Front End (v 4.01) (c) Matthew T. Ashland ---
Decompressing...
Progress: 100.0% (0.0 seconds remaining, 9.4 seconds total)
Success...
ERROR: Input file "Big Time.ape" is not a supported format


Where is the mistake?

here's a possible thought:

QUOTE
oggenc2.x: is a command line Ogg Vorbis encoder based upon the official oggenc. Features include compression from lossless files (Monkeys Audio, LPAC, FLAC, OptimFROG, WavPack and Shorten - requires presence of decoders)


perhaps you need the Monkey's Audio Decoder, as well.

Monkey Audio is installed and MAC.exe (monkey audio decoder) and oggenc2.exe share the same directory. Then when I run transcoding APE to OGG (command line above), oggenc2 decodes APE to WAV by MAC.exe and then the process ends up with the error message that APE is not supported format for oggenc2.

I think you need to get special MAC.exe version from Ogg section on Rarewares:
QUOTE
MAC.exe V3.99 2004-07-09
Special version for oggenc2.3 APE input. (Silent operation and writes to stdout correctly.)
Download (68Kb)

Thanks iGold! Now it works fine.

BTW, this mac.exe is great. I use it together with this batch script for a couple of folders of apes or flacs.

I noticed that especially on the part where it converts the ape/flac into the wave-format, my CPU runs at 100%. This is on most occasions fine, but I also noticed a sharp increase in the CPU temperature like I never have seen before or rather when I do a burn in or performance test with my computer.

I worry a bit about having this running for hours... without blowing my computer up!

Does anybody know a solution to reduce the priority of the process the CPU uses for the wave-converting or a different mac.exe that could help doing 'a better job'?

I have a AMD Athlon 1.4 GHz, and the temp rises up to 70 degrees celsius, which is 158 Fahrenheit...

Hi,
download and use RMCLOCK here >> http://cpu.rightmark.org/ .
Set your CPU to a lower voltage (that mean's it will run slower, but shouldn't overheat anymore).

P.S.: It's one of those tools where you should REALLY CAREFULLY read the manual.
Anyway have fun.

Quite similar issue:

I have in the same directory

- oggenc2.exe = OggEnc v2.83 (Lancer [20061110](SSE2) based on aoTuV b5)
- flac.exe = Command-line FLAC encoder/decoder version 1.1.4 (P4 build from RareWares)

So I try:
CODE
oggenc2.exe -q 3 -o audio.ogg audio.flac

Result:
CODE
ERROR: Input file "audio.flac" is not a supported format

Transcoding probably did not even start, the error message appears quite immediately.

Do I need a specific version of oggenc2.exe or flac.exe? Does an ID3 tag at the beginning of the FLAC file harm the file type detection? Or did I miss anything else?
