Since 0.3.3 I've added some protection agains such crashes.
By the way, dvdadecoder can play right from ISOs, no need to use PowerISO.
To encode to FLAC:
1. Install FLAC command line (flac.exe) at least.
2. In foobar do right click -> Convert -> Output format -> choose "FLAC" -> Ok -> Select flac.exe -> ...
Oh, forgot to ask: Do you use some programs like AnyDVD that could interfere with DVD-Audio protection?
Sorry for all the dumb questions...
BTW, the problem I am having is with the DVD-A disc that was included with barenaked ladies - Everything to everyone. I don't have other DVD-A discs to try. I just have the ISO from DVD-A downloads, like the one I tested. So there might be something weird about this disc.
I installed 0.3.4 and it no longer crashes. However, when I try to play any MLP track, I don't get any sound.
How do you install the FLAC command line? I noticed that under Tools->Converter, FLAC is included in the list of Output formats. Since this doesn't seem to make a difference, I decided to download the latest FLAC utils for Windows. I installed them and located the FLAC folder in my 'C:\\Program Files (x86)' directory. In foobar2000, under Tools->Converter, I typed "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\flac-1.2.1-win\\bin\\flac.exe" into the command-line encoders folder window. I assume that isn't enough. Are there additional arguments that need to be typed?
I also don't see the 'Convert' command when I right click on an audio file. The foo_converter component is installed.
And yes, I do usually have AnyDVD HD running. I will try disabling it if that makes a difference.
UPDATE- I couldn't figure out why the 'Convert' option wasn't appearing on the menu when I right-clicked on a track. So I picked the Reset button in foobar2000's preferences. After doing this the 'Convert' command appeared and I figured out how to set it to FLAC and use the flac.exe file.
I also disabled AnyDVD HD and reopened the Barenaked Ladies DVD-A in foobar2000. I was able to play the MLP tracks (including the 24/96 5.1) and convert without any more problems.
Thanks again for your help.
