Steve from the AAC listening test topic found a bug related to gapless information in m4a files encoded with Winamp/FhG's new AAC encoder.

Updates from the 5.62 release
* Fixed a bug that was preventing gapless playback information from being written to the encoded file in some circumstances
* Fixed compatibility issue that was preventing HE-AAC files from being used with iTunes
* Fixed a bug that was causing the ADTS encoder to fail with the default settings

To install, just unzip this to your Winamp plugins folder. It should overwrite an existing file (unless you are using an older version of Winamp).

This will be released with 5.63 (or 5.621 depending on what version number we decide upon)

Nice results.

Just some observations.
TVBR has no HE-AAC mode. It will be more correct to compare HE-AAC vs HE-AAC or LC-AAC vs LC-AAC.
Apple HE-AAC (--cvbr 64 --he) vs FhG HE-AAC (--vbr 2). Also qaac -q2 and -q1 has practicly identical quality. The difference isn't perceptible.

I now. But I test 5 to 5 default profiles, Apple Core Audio AAC vs Fraunhofer AAC. FhG - winner.

CODE
qaac 1.04, CoreAudioToolbox 7.9.7.3

Preset
Min    (--tvbr   0) - -q 1/2 - 58.3x/45.9x
Low    (--tvbr  32) - -q 1/2 - 54.2x/40.3x
Medium (--tvbr  64) - -q 1/2 - 48.9x/36.6x
High   (--tvbr  96) - -q 1/2 - 46.5x/35.0x
Max    (--tvbr 127) - -q 1/2 - 43.8x/33.9x
   (--cvbr 64 --he) - -q 1/2 - 42.2x/36.1x

fhgaacenc 20111104, enc_fhgaac 1.02

Preset
--vbr 1 - 67,9x
--vbr 2 - 42,7x
--vbr 3 - 53,3x
--vbr 4 - 52,5x
--vbr 5 - 48,6x

Core Audio AAC HE mode is a spherical cow IMHO smile.gif

As I see, q1 has unacceptable higher bitrate than q2. Up to 5% smile.gif

QUOTE (C.R.Helmrich @ Nov 16 2011, 23:48) *
And does nero automatically switch to HE-AAC for low -q values?

-q 0.00-0.15 - HEv2
-q 0.16-0.30 - HEv1
-q 0.31-1.00 - LC

The thing is qaac's default is q2 and iTunes q1.

Apple Core Audio AAC vs Fraunhofer AAC. FhG - winner.

Winner for what? For speed or speed/quality/bitrate?
Sorry, I don't see how You've managed to make any conclusion.
I can add almost useless -q0 to LAME and claim that's it is slowest MP3 encoder and Helix is a winner (?).

Let's define the relations ( with acceptable level of precision): speed/quality/bitrate and then talk about winners.

What the goal of comparing fhg -v 3 and --tvbr 64 or 96 if these settings haven't even the same bitrate? Variation of all three variables gives us ....nothing.

Who does guarantee You that FhG is any better in quality terms or at least on par with tvbr -q0 at the same bitrate?

For speed. Only speed test at this time.

My ears and... Your own Public AAC Listening Test smile.gif Only samples with voice is important for me. FhG faster, cleaner and much hardware compatibility. Winner, at least only for me smile.gif
