Hello.

Does anybody know why transcoding from flac to flac gives a slight increase In file size?
I noticed this when transcoding a -8 flac track to -8 flac, despite not changing anything about the file structure, tags etc..

The reason I was initially doing this was to see if I could remove embedded artwork and match the pre-embedded artwork file size by transcoding flac to flac. However i noticed an increase In file size was being observed even on a basic, minimal-tagged flac file.

The transcodes were made using dBpoweramp's music converter.

Regards

Scott

But the flac.exe encoder also adds padding when encoding. Does dbpoweramp add more than 8 kB of padding ?

QUOTE
The encoder writes a PADDING block of 8192 bytes by default (or 65536 bytes if the input audio stream is more than 20 minutes long).

I know in dBpoweramp Configuration 4 kB is the default setting for FLAC.
