DVD-Audio decoder for foobar2000 - Page 2

post #31 of 394
Converting the mc tracks to a wav file always give me an error on the last file in the selection.
Tried several disks and it's always the same error on the last file:

Unable to open item for playback (Unsupported format or corrupted file):
"C:\\Users\\Frank\\Music\\Ken-Kon\\_.wav.cue" / index: 7



Tracks one to six play fine.

Foobar is GREAT! Someone over at the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear Sky PC game forum figured out a way to use it while gaming. Press a certain button and keyboard short cuts are available for Foobar then press again and keyboard goes back to game.

I wasn't lucky to reproduce this condition yet.
A new experimental 0.2.3 version is available. No bug fixes, just 2 features added: decrypt-on-copy for AOBs/VOBs and watermark detector. Check foobar's console output for info.
post #34 of 394
Thanks,
Still the same problem with the new release.

This is what I do:

After opening the Audio TS I make a selection of the mc tracks. With I right click Th pop up menu is opened and I select the convert option.

In the dialog I select the Generate multi-track files and specify a destination folder.
After conversion no problems are reported.

Playing the last track from the generated wav file gives the error. (Duration field shows ??)


Playing the track straight from the disc works ok.
Note I'm on the latest Windows 7 RC (64bit)

edit:
Using the console I get this trace:
warning: WAV data block bigger than allowed by specifications, some parts of file won't be readable

Bummer: So I need to fill the DVD Audio server track for track.

What is the size of this _.wav file? WAV data block can't be bigger than 4 gigabytes.
post #36 of 394
Resulting file size is too big.

Getting the seperate tracks on a server will be a lot of work since foobar converter cannot extract the track titles.

Then titles' names should be made unique, my fault... Ok, I'll fix that.

Edit:
Tags %album% and %track% were added. Now you can use something like %album%-%track%-%title% for file names.
post #38 of 394
I still not get unique track names.

I have send an e-mail with a screenshot attached as jpg

Another problem when foobar is playing the DVD Audio and I try to convert the tracks foobar closes itself (crashing?)


edit: just found out how to attach a file to a post

Strange:
After a couple of restarts I'm now getting track numbers

But also errors reported:



5 out of 6 tracks converted with major problems.

DVD Audio Decoder really works very well. Although it's still in an early version, I haven't had any issues yet. Many thanks for this wonderful foobar plugin!
I also want to contribute some ideas which might be considered for future development. I couldn't think of many improvements as it's quite nice already, so here's what I came up with:
- A switch to make the addition of the downmix files to the playlist optional.
- An option to specify an audio output device for playback in DVD Audio Decoder that is used instead of foobar's default audio output device.
post #42 of 394
Very usefull will be a dsp plugin for adjusting channel delays to cope with different loudspeaker distances.
post #43 of 394
@Frank: Have you checked the Channel Mixer DSP plugin? It should be able to provide channel delays.

post #44 of 394
No,
Thanks for the link. Very usefull

All this happens because decoder doesn't support sumultaneous operations. It's not a bug, it's by design I take a break for a month to think things over.
post #46 of 394
Another problem I have with foobar is that it fails to output multichannel to my Motu 896HD over firewire.
It does work if I setup the 8 channel analog outputs as stereo pairs.
But then I get only 2 channel output.
post #47 of 394
Are you still considering adding a Windows Media Center Interface?

Seems this is an output plugin issue.

How it could be accomplished? WMC supposes WMP, does'n it? And this decoder is not a DirectSound source filter. I'd say "No".
post #49 of 394
I´ve 2 stupid questions:
1. - does the foo_input_dvda.dll the "watermark-dedection" too?
Or is therefor an other plugin used?
2 - if I select the *.ifo-file, I get the track-content of the DVD-A more then once,
always the same, in the same order (both, stereo and multichannel).
Did I anything wrong? It doesn´t matter but it doesn´t fit nice.

Besides that, it´s a really great tool!

1. It does. foo_input_dvda.dll contains 2 plugins: input plugin for dvd-a playback an dsp plugin for watermark detection.
2. It shows what the disc contains, up to 3 times (multichannel, stereo and stereo downmix from multichannel).
post #51 of 394
Does this plug-in allow me to record FLAC as DVD-A files?

-S
post #52 of 394
no, reverse. You can (may be, I didn´t try) your DVD-A as FLAC (I did it in WAVs).
To create a DVD you need a authoring prog as Disc Welder Chrome or Cirlinca´s DVD-A Solo.
What did you mean with "DVD-A Files"? MLP? Therefor you use Minnetonka Audio´s SurCode MLP.

Danke! A little pricey for me though...

Are there any approaches that would allow me to launch and completely control playback of DVD-Audio discs or files using only a remote control? I don't have a keyboard or mouse hooked up to my home theater PC.

A new dvdadecoder v0.2.5 is available. Supports ISO playback and simultaneous operations. Bug hunters are welcomed, easy prey
post #56 of 394
manisiutkin, seems there are some bugs on the iso playback. I decrypted and made isos from a number of DVDAs, and in my collections, "Sonny Rollins - Saxophone Colossus", "Way Out West", "Kenny Burrell & John Coltrane", and "Art Pepper Meets the Rhythm Section" can't be played, with the error message "Unable to open item for playback (Unsupported file format)".

There are also at least 2 DVDA isos (John Coltrane - Blue Train and Cannonball Adderley - Somethin' Else) shows incorrect number of tracks and starts on the middle of the disc.

Of course some other isos plays correctly. Thanks manisiutkin, for all the efforts you have done. It's really great to be able to use foobar to play DVDA...
post #57 of 394
Btw manisiutkin, have you consider adding a "Open DVD-A/ISO" menu item instead of opening an iso file with file association? A menu item seems more natural then associating a file extension.
post #58 of 394
Hi manisiutkin,

as far as I tested, I don´t have any problems.

Even my "difficult" Diana Krell DVD-A plays both, the ISO and the AUDIO_TS.
But again, even I deleted both files in the wit ULTRAA-ISO mounted iso-file and saving this, I can not play this DVD wether in PowerDVD nor in my DVD-Player (Pioneer DVD-A 575). I dont know, how they integreted the menu on the DVD(A), I cant get it out of the VOB-file of the AUDIO_TS-directory. May be is this the reason, that i couldn´t play the DVD in PowerDVD and my DVD-Player.
Do you have any further ideas????

I remember, I have an (really) original DVD-A bought "Silverline - Uriah Heep - The Best" and I would create an iso. There was an ISO, but after creating a DVD of this iso, it didn´t play either in PowerDVD nor in my DVD-Player. And the iso was much bigger then 4.5 GB (about 5 GB, it wouldn´t fit a blank DVD. Could it be the same reason/effect?

Thanks for testing the stuff. The problem with the iso playback seems to be in the third party library (libdvdread) which is used for iso parsing. Will be finding a workaround...
NEVER TRUST OPEN-SOURCE

The few .iso files I have tested yet do work fine.
