I apologize for my poor english skills but it's not my primary language but I'll try to be as understandable as possible.

By the way I want to thanks Bryant for is GREAT codec! smile.gif

Here is my problem now:

I usually encode my library in FLAC but now I want to switch to WavPack because I've got an Android phone (HTC Desire Z / G2) and with WavPack I don't have to maintain 2 library anymore (Lossless/Lossy) by transfering only the .wv file and it's a great feature!

But here is the bummer: when I try to play the .wv on my phone (overclocked at 1Ghz) there is a LOT of artifacts (click etc.). I have tried different players (PowerAMP, Andless, DeadBeef and the results are the same) and different songs.

I try to play the encoded lossy files on my PC (windows 7 x64) the sounds looks perfect.

The presets are :
- compression mode : Tried both Normal/Ultra High
- additionnal processing: Level 6
- Birate: 320kbps (I'm not an audiophile)
- Hybrid mode with correction file

Anyone has aready have this problem and managed to get rid of it?

I've got a smartphone way less powerful than yours, an HTC Legend, and still have no probs with andLess (buil details: andLess_02162011.apk from http://code.google.com/p/andless/) playing back my WavPack -hx4b256cm encoded files, both losslessly and without correction files.

WavPack 4.70.0 -b384hx6cmv/qaac 2.43 -V 100
