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.

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

Apparently it is:

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

bäm, that's strange. well i've added an install rule and triggered a rebuild in the opensuse build service. but i'll have to test it tomorrow.

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.

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.

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

8 years ago

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!

Hi! Why soundKonverter isn't available for Mandriva 2010? Can't someone port it to qt4? There is not any better app...

When ripping with cdparanoia I don't get a progress bar for the tracks. Is it not possible with that library?

And are you making progress with the kde4 version? SoundKonverter is really the best konverter&ripper on linux (and I tried most).

reading the progress from cdparanoia is not supported in soundkonverter 0.3 (it's a little bit difficult to parse). for soundkonverter 1.0 it is already implemented. i'm working on soundkonverter 1.0 for a long time now and i'm making progress but i have very little time. so a kde4 version will come but please be patient.
