Thanks for sharing with us SoundKonverter.

I found it very easy to use to rip CD to FLAC.

Maybe it would involve major effort, but would adding the capability to fetch and embed album cover art to the encoded file be considered? (guess many format do support embedding cover art, mp3, FLAC etc). I reckon it would be a very nice feature to have especially for those who use soundKonverter to rip CDs

Thanks for your comment.

It's on my todo list but currently I have very little time, so the implementation will take a while.

Cheers!

I just upgraded to version 1.2.0 on my gentoo machine, and was surprised this application has even put effort into version upgrade!

having a GUI presenting options recommending users with new optimized default! That is user-friendly without scarifying advanced options!

I can't wait when soundKonverter can pick/fetch album art, and automagically embed them to the resulting audio file when a CD is ripped!

Looks promising .
I've try a build in cmake of your 1.90
works nice.
In mandriva you'll need also kdemultimedia4-devel
I think I'll give it a try for packaging in mandriva when you'll release the 2.0 stable
Thx m8
Keep in touch.

Thanks for your comment.

And it would be nice to have mandriva packages.
I tried making some myself using the open build service but I couldn't get it to work.
So please let me know if you have a good .spec file and maybe we can get it to work on the open build service as well, that would be really great.

Greetings Daniel

ok soundkonverter for mandriva 2011.0 it is available on mrb :
http://mrb.mandrivausers.ro/index.php?search_for=soundkonverter&search_submit=Search

for time being only for x86_64, I'll complete the porting for i686 also.
Due the lack of missing deps on the official media I've ported all on mrb , and to install it
involve 6 media backports :
Main, contrib, reastricted, mib, mrb and edumandriva
That's why I don't advice you to build it on suse-build system , ( at least I'm not able to build it on suse-build-system )
Also my advice is to add mrb media if somebody try to install it since many royalty covered decoders are in restricted && mrb media
If you need my spec file you have the src.rpm on the above link

If you whant you can add my media in download section for mandriva.
keep in touch

Is there a way to tell SK to remove the original source files? If not, then I request this as a new feature.

Hi!

I use your apps since some time now, very useful, thank you!
I use the latest version from your opensuse repository. There is still some issue with some filenames, apparently using ` ' and $ in their path/name. You can find some there : http://www.mediafire.com/?g1y8ds45xj4hxol

Also, the option 'convert to FAT-compatible name' doesn't seem to work, i have a file named "12 ¿Que Dices?.mp3" after conversion.

And as a suggestion, the ability to remove some column (output file is redundant when copying structure) or resize/move them around would be great!

Regards,

Charly

Thanks for your comment.
I fixed the problem with dollar signs and backticks.
One file you sent me (01 Sgt. Pepper's...) seems to be broken. I couldn't get it to convert or play with any program.

Also I couldn't confirm your problem with FAT file names. Could it be that you added the file and turned FAT compatible file names on after that?

Regarding the columns, I like the way it is now because they show the minimum set of information you need in order to know what's happening. And I know that resizing the columns makes them snap back to the default width sometimes. I'll have a look at that.

Hi,

Thank you for fixing this!

Concerning the FAT file names, it seems it depends on the output mode.
In the screenshot below, first file was with specified output path, second one was with copied directory structure. Notice that only in the first file the ? is replaced; and notice the inverted question mark is kept as it.

Thanks again, found the bug in the 'copy structure' output mode and fixed it.
Btw. the inverted question mark is a fat compatible character.

You were right about that broken file, its strange im sure i used to listen to it a lot... I got it back and it was successfully converted with the same filename.

Very nice program. It can convert from and to practically any format of which Linux version exist.
What remains is converting also tags. It converts standard tags, but I would like it to convert non standard tags as well. E.g. I use often the LYRICS tag to store the lyrics of the music. It would be great if soundKonverter could keep LYRICS tags during conversion, even better if it could convert LYRICS tags of FLAC files into USLT tags in mp3. (As far as I know not a single software does it). SoundKonverter would be No. 1

I'll need to have a look at all those tag formats and what taglib can currently do. Copying covers and lyrics would really be great.

I think, SoundKonverter should use .oga as OggVorvis standart.

According to Xiph's website http://wiki.xiph.org/index.php/MIME_Types_and_File_Extensions

The use of .ogg for audio and video file is deprecated since 2007. Applications have to use .oga/.ogv instead.

Or it must have an option for changing the extension.
Thanx :)

Thanks very much for the clarification, just a suggestion, could the settings we put into LAME via SoundKonvertor be loaded into a "parameters" box so they could be edited or over-ridden, I know that the interfacing with LAME is only a small element of the program but it seems logical?

Cheers

Nice program!
I've used last version, and found, that it apply Replay Gain volume correction for mp3 instead of just adding tag with that information. Also, it would be good, if Replay Gain information could be added as RVA2 tags (id3v2.4, recent mp3gain can do this) instead of APE. Some players, like RockBox can't read APE.
