Description:

Not really a KDE application and not even an application, but very usefull non the less.

aKode is the decoding library used in akode_artsplugin in kdemultimedia, and improves the aRts experience by fewer drop-outs, more supported formats and fewer bugs in general.
It can also be used directly without aRts in JuK and Amarok.

aKode supports decoding of MPEG audio, Ogg Vorbis, Ogg FLAC, old FLAC, Speex, WAV, and Musepack audio.

I've just updated the Ark Linux packages to 2.0.1 -- Ark Linux users simply apt-get update; apt-get install akode.

Others in need of RPMs may try their luck with

Hi,

I have a problem compiling Akode 2.0 rc1 with gcc-3.4.4. When using 3.4.3 it does work fine. I use gentoo Linux.
Where may I post such issues?

I have to set the sound-quality (16bit) and sampling rate manually, as otherise the sound is very noisy.

Where can I set these parameters?
