Very impressed by this program: automatically tries to save to a subdirectory underneath the application folder, converts to plenty of formats, supports normalization and volume change, even lets you close the program or shutdown the computer once complete. Even the skins are great.

As mentioned in the other thread, I wish it would accept .AAC files, but still another fantastic audio conversion program.

Usage update:

TAudioConverter.exe retried it again today and now complains that it can't find MediaInfo.dll (which is in the same directory). I deleted the settings file and restarted without success. Might submit a bug report to the DEV if I keep having a need for this.

You might need to register the file in the system...

Great software! Thank you, ozok!

Is there any option to close the application when it's done converting the files? 'Cause I like to have a shortcut in the SendTo folder and that option wold be very useful.

You can access a 'post-encode action' dropdown menu if you start converting something. You might have missed it, its below the main progress bar to the right. Probably not the best location for it.

update: Looks like 'post encode action' is also in the settings menu so you can set the default behavior to close after encoding is finished. There's also a new version.

Code: Select all

--0.8.3
-Added: Support for fdkaac (thx to o-l-a-v for binaries)

-Added: Custom output folder structures (thx to NappyHead and eahm)
-Added: New textboxes, trackbars, etc (some settings are reseted)
-Added: New progress view layout
-Fixed: Summary didn't show if custom tags were used
-Fixed: Some texts couldn't be seen if skins were disabled
-Updated: AlphaControls full version 8.31 Beta  (thx for donations)

Hey ozok, thanks for asking. Unfortunately, I couldn't replicate the error. Re-downloaded the software, encoded something, and then nothing. Something about the DLL being unregistered. I'll keep an eye out.

Beautiful software, by the way. One of the smoothest OSS interfaces I've ever seen.

Hello everyone,

I didn't have a subscription to this thread so I couldn't reply your questions, but looks like everyone got their questions replied.

Please feel free to send me suggestions etc. I try to implement them if I have time for it.

Regards.

Ozok:

I was going through and rewriting the entry to include some additional feature notes. I continue to be impressed by your work here but I may have caught an error.

Hopefully you're still active on this forum.

Setup: WinXP SP3, TAudioConverter version 0.9.0 Build 1930;

1. Select File - Add Files
2. Navigate to a folder with various .AAC and .MP4 files

Defect: empty folder, even when "Files of type *.*" is selected in the dialog box.

Workaround: choose "File - Add Folder" and then manually remove unwanted files.

As @loin2kolpotoru said this bug is fixed in beta releases, located here: https://bitbucket.org/ozok/taudioconver ... /downloads but thanks anyway. I've commited many changes to source repo but I can't find time to release a new beta or stable version.

BTW how should TAC handle temp files on portable version? Currently it uses host system's temp folder but some users want it use its own folder. I'm afraid this will slow down encoding. What you guys think about it? Should there be an option to switch between these two options?

Cheers.
