Replay Gain and Tags

Post by Lunchbox16 » Tue Jun 01, 2010 8:02 pm

Stephen,
I don't know if this is within the purview of Tag, but it would be a handy feature for one of your applications - the ability to determine the ReplayGain information for FLACs one already has. Basically, if wanted to go through my FLAC archive and add replay gain information without re-ripping everything. A google search turned up the following webpage, which might help with this question, but seeing that I know nothing about programming, I can't say for sure:

You can do this currently with the command line tool metaflac. Rip obviously does this when ripping, but I haven't written a tool to do this since metaflac is part of the official FLAC tools.

Good to know. Looks like I'm teaching myself metaflac command line stuff today.
Thanks!


*UPDATE*
Apparently command line stuff is not as straight forward as I thought it was. While the commands make sense, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to actually run the metaflac program. Any help would be appreciated.
