I am trying to figure out how to properly use (to my taste) itunesencode when transcoding FLAC or APE to .m4a.

For those of you familiar with Itunes, when it encounters a file without tags, or tags it doesn't understand, it writes the converted songs to "Unknown Artist" & "Unknown Album" folders in your target directory.

If the tags are understood, it writes it to "Artist" and "Album Title". Make sense?

I can't seem to get the strings right in Itunedencode.exe to have Itunes read the tags and output to the unique directory of the artists and album title?

When transcoding several albums at a time, every song gets dumped into the same directory. It makes isolating and defining 100+ songs a bitch.

Any ideas? Is this possible or am I doing something wrong?

can you tell me what the %s and %d at the end of the string mean?

-i %s -o %d

thanks,

Both of those are variables from Foobar's Diskwriter module.
%s = temporary input file
%d = output file name

I don't know if iTunesEncode supports pipes, but if it doesn't you need the "%s". I'm using it with my config.
