Re: track start times drift in CUE files

Following up to this after further XRECODE experimenting: I think XRECODE always produces an accurate CUE file but sometimes the merged audio does not line up. If I merge the audio files with ffmpeg command line then it lines up OK with XRECODE's CUE file. ffmpeg -f concat -safe 0 -i files -c copy -...

Re: track start times drift in CUE files

The player I was using is Total Recorder (http://www.totalrecorder.com/). I also see the drift in VLC player 3.0.8. Foobar2000 plays it OK for me. Hmm. And Android app "Listen Audiobook Player" is OK too. I tested CUE file generation also with merged m4a files and it still seems to exhibit the origi...

Re: track start times drift in CUE files

The updated XRECODE seems to drift even worse :shock: if I choose to transcode the tracks, CUE is generated OK. Here's a webpage with description of embedded chapters and examples for mp3, m4a, opus, and ogg vorbis https://auphonic.com/blog/2013/07/03/chapter-marks-and-enhanced-podcasts/ Thanks for ...

track start times drift in CUE files

XRECODE v1.99

In Merge/CUE operations, the created CUE file has track start times that drift out of sync. The farther you go into the merged file, the larger the error. That is, a short track merged at the end of a really long track, or the tracks towards the end of a large number of tracks.
