Hi Guys,

Thomas seems going silent for a period of time, any news or other developers working on TAK related GUI or something like "TAK drop"?

Also want to ask, any media player can DIRECT decode the HDCD signal inside TAK yet?

Thanks.

People tend to underestimate just how hard writing a decoder specification is. I've seen a certain major software company release a specification that covered 2/3s of the format and then ended with 'for the rest look at the decoder source' smile.gif

Yeah. And there will nearly always be ambiguities in the specification which make you want to look at the source code.

Were you planning to write a new decoder, or to work on the ffmpeg one? FWIW, the ffmpeg one seemed to be of fairly high quality although maybe you had other opinions.

I haven't examined the ffmpeg decoder, but i am sure the ffmpeg people are very talented and i have little doubt that their decoder is of high quality. And BTW: Finally i really have to thank them for pushing me in the right direction (regarding an open source decoder release)... wink.gif

But i think, i will take the easiest and most safe way and base the decoder on my implementation. Even if it's probably a less suitable base for portability.

Thomas, just FYI, I can't link to your official web page because it's in german only. So for now, I'm going to link to the HA wiki entry: http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=TAK

Thank you!
