A new FLAC encoder has been developed, which is proposed for inclusion in ffmpeg. The author claims that in high-compression mode, it can compress certain files better than libFLAC.

Album: Toto - Legend (in a single file)
Playing time: 72m 35s
Original File Size: 768284896 bytes
Computer specs: Apple PowerBook G4, 1.5GHz, 1GB ram, 7200rpm HDD.
Encoders: flac 1.1.2 and flake 06

CODE
flac:

level   enc time     bytes       ratio     kbps      dec time
-----  ---------   --------      -----    ------    ---------
  0     1m 50s     518214304     0.675               1m 15s
  5     3m 34s     496252171     0.646               1m 14s
  8    13m 46s     494499692     0.644               1m 26s

flake:

level   enc time     bytes       ratio     kbps      dec time
-----  ---------   --------      -----    ------    ---------
  0     3m 21s     526551866     0.685     967.2     1m 21s
  5     6m 53s     495548928     0.645     910.3     1m 30s
  8    13m 37s     492004491     0.640     903.8     1m 14s

The compression rate is comparable to flac, but it encodes noticeable slower at -0 and -5.
Anyway, you have done great work so far! smile.gif

Thank you for the feedback.
It looks like I have a long way to go to make level 5 comparable to the reference encoder on PPC. At least level 8 is on par.

I finally let my system run for a while to test a whole album. Here is what I got at level 8.

Smashing Pumpkins - Siamese Dream
playing time: 1h2m15.8s

flac: encode time=1h1m35.42s ratio=0.583
flake: encode time=35m43.75s ratio=0.582

I know...it really is about time for a major upgrade...I'm still holding out for 10 good years out of my '97 IBM. wink.gif

Thanks,
Justin

You are welcome!
Looks like FLAC have optimized their code for PowerPC, while you of course have consentrated on i386 only.
I guess it would be hard for you to improve the performance on PowerPC as well, since you dont have access to one. But that might not be that important since Apple are moving their line to Intel, and at the current stage they only have two PowerPC computers left.

Wow, you have cut the -8 encoding time on your i386 machine to half.

That you still use a 300MHz computer from '97 are just insane. My computer are only two (2) years old, and I am seriously looking for a replacement (probably next generation MacBook Pro)! tongue.gif
