Getting Lossy to Lossless warning in Copy operations

Post by 1024mb »

Hi,

If Output Format is set to a lossless type like FLAC and then one chooses Copy as the operation, XR warns that one is trying to convert from Lossy to Lossless when it shouldn't because no conversion is taking place.

I'm copying MP3 files but FLAC has stayed chosen on the now greyed Output Format section and I'm getting that warning. If I change to Encode and choose MP3 on the Output Formats section and change back to Copy I don't get the warning anymore.

I'm using: XRECODE 3 [64-bit] - 1.104 [Beta 2020-08-13/1347]

EDIT: I also would like to ask if the "Normalize" option could be enabled when using the Copy action, I know there is an option to apply the normalizing to the audio itself but would be great if that option would be greyed out and the "Apply to tags" option would works as normal.

Thanks.

Thanks, the latest beta fixed this.

I want to report something else.
If I use %disc3% pattern with MP3 files the cd number is always filled with 1 when the album only has one (1) disc, the MP3 files have DISCNUMBER and DISCTOTAL fields, both in this case set to 1 so the "1" in the filename/path shouldn't be filled and should be ignored just how it happens with FLAC, M4A and the other formats.

Could you, please, send one such mp3 file and the Diagnostic information (it's under About button) to xrecode@gmail.com?
