you're right that isn't very user friendly. I'll collect some information and add them to the next release. - Jan 16 2007

it is needed to read the output of the backends. this way soundkonverter can display a progress bar.
%p is for an integer progress in percent (eg. progress: 12%)
%t is for the progress in seconds (eg. time=45s)
%0 and %1 are free values that can be used for the progress in frames (eg. frame: 120/324)
everything with an * will be ignored (eg. %*s)
and %% equals an % - Jan 14 2007

ok, i decided now to change the "output" filed to the "comma" version. it somehow seems to be more consistent - at least on my system. - Jan 13 2007

Audio Extractors/Converters by HessiJames 608 comments

damn, you're right. somehow i mixed up the versions. but i didn't realize it, because it works for me without problems. - very strange. so please tell me if it works for you now.
i updated the packages, so you can either redownload them or use the plugin update tool of the configuration dialog.
btw: i didn't update the "output" field (i left it with a dot). it seems to be very inconsistend. - Jan 13 2007

i'm sorry, i don't know why it doesn't work on some systems.
open the configure.in.in file and remove the cdparanoia stuff. then it should work. - Jan 13 2007

yes, oggenc only provides the "--downmix" switch. So you can encode files as mono or leave it stereo. there is no option to enforce stereo. - Jan 13 2007

Hi and thanks.
I've fixed the typos, but they haven't caused any problems, since it was mistyped in the source, too.
I have also changed the separator for ogg to ".". But "," works nice on my system, too. And I choose it, because the output is displayed with an ",". But when changing the output pattern in the plugin file to contain a ".", it still works.
So everything is a dot now - but it's strange. ;) - Jan 09 2007

hi, thanks for your suggestions. and as i already mentioned, i'll look for that when implementing the next version for kde4. so you'll need to be patience. if you can't wait, try mp3splt/mp3splt-gtk. - Dec 30 2006

Audio Extractors/Converters by HessiJames 608 comments

yes, i wanted to make an universal frontend and though most backends support pipes, all apps support reading/writing wav files. i know that this is a little bit inefficient, but most time is spend on converting the data, so the performance loss is minimal. i've tested it just now: (mp3->ogg)
without pipes: 22,71 sec
with pipes: 22,31 sec - Dec 20 2006

it wouldn't be hard to implement, but i don't know if it would be a good idea because at the moment soundkonverter never overwrites files. so you cannot damage anything with it. if there was an option for overwriting files, you could select this option by accident.
maybe i could add an advanced option in the config dialog. i'll think about that. - Dec 19 2006
Kickoff for Suse 10.1

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by finrold 11 comments

very nice to see a backport, thx. but i can't install it, because it conflicts with dbus-1 (newer version required). when adding the dbus repository from the build server to smart, the new version of dbus-1 conflicts with dbus-1-qt and hal. - Dec 17 2006

oh, there was a beta, but you're right. I'm rushing, because at the moment I haven't got much free time.
and yeah, the versioning scheme may be a little bit confusing :) . i'll change that.
concerning your other comment. i wrote 0.4 in order to make clear that i mean the next version. soundkonverter 1.0 for kde 4.0 would be great. ;)
i'm a little bit unsure, what features to implement in the following versions. i definitely don't want to make some kind of bloat-ware, but i have some more ideas. so it'll be a compromise of performance, usability and featurerichness. - Dec 16 2006

Have a look at http://mail.kde.org/pipermail/taglib-devel/2006-October/000518.html to find out, why the genre tag is not displayed correctly in all applications. Taglib seems to do everything right and some other programs are not intelligent enough or they are wrong implemented.
I have added a 'hack' to soundkonverter, that rewrites the id3v2 genre and year tags, so that at least xmms can read them. - Nov 10 2006

hi,
yes this is the right place to report bugs.
it would be good, if you could give an example.
you could also try out version 0.3 alpha1. it is not feature complete, but should work properly. this version works around all these 'filename' problems. so it isn't really remunerative to fix v. 0.2. - Sep 17 2006

it seems that you are using the stabile version 0.2. in the current development version 0.2.80 this is all implemented (at least partly). have a look at the project homepage, there you can get it. - Sep 09 2006

Hi, I'm currently not at home, but I think you should update your plugin files (e.g. via the config dialog). Because of some problems with different ffmpeg versions I've disabled the '-hq' option. - Aug 01 2006

1. install mppdec and mppenc (http://musepack.net or via the soundkonverter configuration dialog at the backends page)
2. open soundkonverter. if a small button appears in the top right corner, click on it and skip step 3 and 4
3. open the configuration dialog of soundkonverter and ensure that the path, where these binaries are located is in the list at the backends page
4. press the button rescan (two new entries should appear in the list below)
5. click on ok

was this your problem? - Jul 11 2006

Unfortunately transKode doesn't want to run on my pc. Do you mean to add user defined options to the command? That shouldn't be a problem.

Hm, I can't confirm that. What version of mppenc are you using?
I tried it with 1.14 Alpha and 1.15v Alpha. The highest quality value is 10 and if you set the quality to a higher value, mppenc uses 10. - Apr 20 2006

Your're right, sorry I didn't know that. In this case you may try out the update function. Got to the preferences -> backend plugins and press refresh. There should be appear a plugin that should be installable.

Hi Vewyn,
#1: This seems not to be my fault. I'm using the default KDE "About Dialog". So this should happen in other apps as well.
#2: Your're right, I named it lac, too. You wrote it in upper characters here, did you really name it "LAC", not "lac"? And where is the binary file? Is that path in the list of directories in the preferences dialog ("Backends")? - Apr 15 2006

Hi, well done, but one thing doesn't work. When I insert my sd card, hdd monitor generates a new row and shows the card, but not the discspace.
I played a bit around and found out, that `df -a` (`df /dev/sdc1`) shows these values. I don't know how hdd monitor works, but maybe you could use it to fix that problem.
I'm using suse 9.3 if that matters. - Mar 20 2006
