Hi There,

I was wondering what the log file from an aparent FLAC rip ment when it states "Used output format: C:\Program Files\FLAC\flac.exe (User Defined Encoder) 192 kBit/s"

I have a few FLAC rips which state 192 kBit/s, 128 and 320 after 'Used output format:flac.exe' Why is it stating common MP3 bitrates within a FLAC rip, is this normal?
or are these some kind of mp3 rips disguised as FLACS?

An example of this is below, Thanks for any help!

CODE

Simply a report of what the ripper (you?) had the "Compression Options" -> "External Compression" -> "Bitrate" drop-down set to in the EAC configuration.

Used only to calculate the displayed compressed size before you rip.

Ignore it.

EDIT: I don't farking know why I'm telling you this. Rereading your post it is obvious you not are the ripper, and if you are questioning the files' authenticity you probably have no farking right to them.

Concerns about quality problems can easily be avoided by buying the CD.

Thanks for your answer soap,

Just to clear things up, I actually do own most of my music on CD or Vinyl, However i will download releases that are rare or out of print and appreciate the quality, In this case it is a rare remaster of an album that i own.

What a load of crap!

The fact that you own the non-remastered version does not entitle you to a free copy of the remastered version.

Can the purchaser of an album on vinyl make a case that he or she is entitled to download a digital copy as well, or does Fair Use dictate the person is required to rip the album personally?

Fortunately, many new vinyl releases include a coupon allowing for a free digital download from the label's website.

I was under the impression that the bitrate setting configured in EAC for FLAC is always ignored.. so it wouldn't make a difference. Would it?

It doesn't for any codec, as I said above.
