Hi,


Again the search box never give me results but always give me the first page of subforums. dry.gif

Then i will ask my question here.

I use foobar2k v.9.6.9 as audio player (default)

My music library contains mostly flac files and some lossy files.

My flac files are mostly to latest version (libFLAC 1.2.1 20070917) because they are ripped of my own cds.

But some are in the oldest version such as (libFLAC 1.1.2 20050205) or (libFLAC 1.1.4 20070213).

I want them to last version. What is the procedure I do?

I tried of convert back in wav theses flac files but for each tracks i keep receive this message : "Corrupted flac stream" (with foobar2k). what that means ?

thx for help a novice.

Can I ask why you want to convert from an old version of FLAC to a new version of FLAC? They're both lossless, so what's gained?


Because i want have them all in FLAC 1.2.1 biggrin.gif
But if have none advantage to go of flac 1.1.2 to 1.2.1 then ... I'll think

on the old FLAC files, just "flac filename.flac --force"

http://flac.sourceforge.net/documentation_tools_flac.html
"flac abc.flac --force
This one's a little tricky: notice that flac is in encode mode by default (you have to specify -d to decode) so this command actually recompresses abc.flac back to abc.flac. --force is needed to make sure you really want to overwrite abc.flac with a new version. Why would you want to do this? It allows you to recompress an existing FLAC file with (usually) higher compression options or a newer version of FLAC and preserve all the metadata like tags too."


I nothing understood here. What is "flac filename.flac --force" and with what programs you do that?

Also i mentionned in my first post that when i convert back the flac files (v.1.1.2) in wav I keep get for each track the error message "Corrupted Flac Stream". it is because the decoder/encoder flac is v1.2.1 now ? The error is for corrupted metadata or ?

thx for our response
