Hello. I was using NeroAacEnc as long as I was active Windows user. Not long time ago I began to use Ubuntu and my goal was to get the same experience. And few days ago I've tried Linux version of my favorite codec. When I compared encoded files, I noticed that they slightly defferent in the beginning and in the end of the file. In the figures below you can see the beginning of the file.


Fig.1 Source



Fig.2 Made by Linux version



Fig.3 Made by Windows version



Fig.4 Made by Windows version in Ubuntu through the Wine


To tell the truth - I can't hear any difference between those files. But it makes me crazy. Why they are different and why this difference appears only in the beginning and the end of the file? And which of the version is more accurate? I've tried to find the answer by myself but didn't succeed.

P.S. Excuse me for big pictures but I can't understand how spoiler tag is working here and I don't now how to hide them.

_faber_ it has been proven that iTunes/QuickTime AAC encoder is better than Nero AAC encoder, why don't you use for example foobar2000 + qaac/qtaacenc if you care so much about the "I can't even ear the difference" different?

PS
I will post the many hearing test I saw around asap, I need to find them.

I need something that works in Linux. Native one, without help of Wine.
