Hi,

has anyone succeeded in having the official FLAC encoder encode a file >2G when feeding it through a pipe (like with foobar2000)? Foobar2000 seems to claim the encoder exits, and when I check the file it's always exactly when the resulting file is 2G large.

FLACCl doesn't have this problem, it merrily encodes 4G+ FLACs.

The Xiph.org site links to the old FLAC pages, so no sign of any fixes or anything. That new maintainer also hasn't been very supportive of Windows in the past, so I don't hold high hopes: http://www.mega-nerd.com/erikd/Blog/CodeHa...e/foobar2k.html

Unfortunately WavPack also has issues with >4G files, unless I'm mistaken and those have been fixed in the mean time.

Have you tried using TAK with such files? Also, Bryant said that he'd be patching WavPack to allow usage with large files.
