mpc file encoding error

Post by Bebop » Thu Feb 21, 2008 12:44 am

HI,

I've just recently been able to get Max functioning on Leopard, but now when I try converting mpc files I get the following messages:

"An error occurred while encoding the file"
"The file does not appear to be a valid Musepack file."

Is it the files? Or is it possible that there is something wrong with Max?

Thanks for your time and help.

Are you able to play the files using Play or another player?

Yes, everything seems to work fine with Play.

Can you send me one of the files so I can take a look?

Absolutely, how should I go about doing this?

The torrent came from this address:

Are these files legally obtained?

Hi all,

I get exactly the same message as Bebop.
And my .mpc file is read flawlessly by Play, and by PC players.

I've tried to convert the same .mpc file using mpc2aiff: it works flawlessly.
So the issue is with Max, not with the file.

This is strange, because the code for reading Musepack files is virtually identical in Play and Max. Does this happen with the latest unstable version of Max?

No it works fine: the file can be read, and conversion to AIFF is OK.
But when trying to convert to AAC I get the following error message
(approximate translation from the French version of Max):
"Call to ExtAudioFileGetProperty failed".

I'm glad that MPC decoding is fixed. Can you post the accompanying message from the console log for the ExtAudioFileGetProperty error?
