-Fix: Destination mode "Source directory" creates filenames consisting only of the file extension
-Fix: All files "Failed" to convert when dragging a folder (Invalid URL)

That's what I had in mind :)
Another great thing would also be to use naming by metadata only if metadata is available. Today I encoded some files and ended up with Title.ogg, Title.new.ogg, Title.new.new.ogg etc.. I don't know how complex this is, but would it somehow be possible to use file names and parent directories as variables or warn in case of any used but missing metadata and offer alternative options?

that's more difficult and i don't know if that is really necessary, if your file aren't tagged properly, it might be better to just use the input file name as output file name and then format the file names with a real tagging program like easytag.
but what i can do is eg. use the input filename if there are not tags at all.

I wish the Linux version of the Nero AAC codec could also be used. It is supposed to yield higher quality than faac.

i haven't looked at nero aac yet but as long as it is possible, i have planned to write a plugin for that.

i'm planing to rewrite almost all plugins, and timidity is an important one in my eyes. so this is work in progress.

I just built soundkonverter from git and found a nice working timidity plugin.

Many thanks for your splendid work.

Keep going!

Hi,
In 1.0 beta 1 the file libsoundkonvertercore.so is not installed by make install, I had to manually install it afterwards.

Report

Correct. It is also not in the openSUSE rpms, so install fails here, too.
Adding libsoundkonvertercore.so to /usr/lib(64)/kde4 doesn't help. Perhaps in /usr/lib(64)? Not urgent, so I will wait for another release.
Perhaps you could update the description to reflect KDE3 and KDE4 differences.

soundkonverter: error while loading shared libraries: libsoundkonvertercore.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Build a new package, but with manually copied libsoundkonvertercore.so to %{_libdir}. It starts, but:
soundkonverter(12578)/kdecore (trader) KServiceTypeTrader::defaultOffers: KServiceTypeTrader: serviceType "soundKonverter/CodecPlugin" not found
soundkonverter(12578)/kdecore (trader) KServiceTypeTrader::defaultOffers: KServiceTypeTrader: serviceType "soundKonverter/ReplayGainPlugin" not found
soundkonverter(12578)/kdecore (trader) KServiceTypeTrader::defaultOffers: KServiceTypeTrader: serviceType "soundKonverter/RipperPlugin" not found
So the decoder/encoder fields stay empty.
Perhaps 1.0beta1 is a bit optimistic, isn't it?

yeah well, i'm an optimist :)
the opensuse rpms have the libsoundkonverter.so included now, but i can't test them at the moment.
you seem to lack the desktop files in /usr/share/kde4/servicetypes but they should have been installed (at least they are in the current rpms).
or maybe running kbuildsycoca4 will do the trick.

ok, is libsoundkonvertercore.so needed for running soundkonverter? soundkonvertercore should be linked into the binary - and i haven't installed it on my system.

When using meta tag information to construct the path to the new files, the new path may or may not exist.

Instead of checking and creating the new path, soundKonverter tells lame or ffmpeg to use a non-existing output path, which ofcourse fails.

which version are you using?

Report

cyberwizzard

1.0.0 Alpha-2

For example: I tell it to create something like /mnt/music/Lady Gaga/Lady Gaga - The Fame/01 Track name

Where only /mnt/music exists and the other folders do not: they are not created before ffmpeg or lame is invoked.

Hi,
The alpha2 version of soundkonverter does not port tags when converting from flac to ogg. I haven't tried any other formats yet. This the only reason I still need soundconverter around, which pulls in 32 additional dependencies. I hope you get this fixed soon. Thank you!
