MAX and PLAY can't read correction files (WAVPACK hybrid)

Post by zorba » Mon Mar 16, 2009 10:31 am

Hello,

How to be sure that wavpack correction files are read by MAX or PLAY?
Track info shows only 400kb in track info while the songs (wavpack hybrid) are lossless. While playing the song, I can rename or remove the correction files... without being warned that the file is used by the application; Does it really use it ?

So I just gave a try and encoded some lossless hybrid wavpack into another format. Let's say mp3 for instance.

I used MAX 0.7.1, then XLD to encode .wv into .mp3.

So, my lossless song "clint eastwood.wv" is in the same folder than its correction files "clint eastwood.wvc" - that makes the whole lossless.

I first encoded "clint eastwood.wv" in lame V5, then deleted "clint eastwood.wvc", and encoded again "clint eastwood.wv" in lame V5.
The mp3 files are identical while the source should not be. How bizarre

6 404 344 bytes

The same test with XLD produces 2 different sizes

6 403 001 bytes / with wv + wvc in the same folder
6 300 794 bytes / with only wv

thanks

with MAX 0.8.1, it seems better

the v5 mp3 are
6 404 344 bytes WITHOUT correction files and
6 449 771 bytes WITH correction files

when I try to delete WVC while decoding, there is no warning and the result is 6 449 771 bytes

Can OSX deal with a deleted file ??? it's strange!

with ogg Q3

4 458 423 bytes (with wvc) vs 4 444 670 bytes (without wvc)

but PLAY (updated) fails to see wvc !!!
