This version is normal...
Build #2131 and #2130 Identical? Perhaps the installer influenced the landmark

Well, not identical, obviously. But only change is that I added more "debug" output, so we can see (hopefully) where exactly things go mad.

I don't know how this should be possible. The installer doesn't really do anything, except for extracting the EXE file (and stuff) to the chosen directory.

The LameXP EXE file that us extracted from the installer is really exactly the same one as contained in the ZIP archive.

So, if you see divergent behavior between build #2131 and build #2130, something different must have happened, at runtime, I suppose...

Reinstalling to the default directory eliminates the bug!

Strange

Anyway, if you think that the problem is somehow related to the "install directory", please try running the special build from the exact "install directory" where the problem occurs.

The program is affected by the dependence of the presence in the roots of the disk ... Only to trace this bug is not possible through a special version I'll wait for the final release

If there is a problem, we should fix it before the final release.

But if you cannot it with the "special build", which is the same as previous build just with more diagnostic output added to the console, then I don't know what to do...

Just found out that the latest version 18.05 of MediaInfo.exe (downloaded from the MediaArea website) cannot be used to replace the LameXP built-in version.

Probably something about Zenitram's changes to the XML output. Right now this is not a big issue, but considering the usual update cycle of LameXP it will be around 1 year until the next stable version. It would be nice if we could use a newer version of MediaInfo without having to install beta versions of LameXP.


Cheers

LameXP v4.16 comes with a "custom" build of MediaInfo v18.03.1, which contains an additional patch (not contained in "official" MediaInfo v18.03.1 release) in order to fix a bug in XML output.

That bug had been introduced in v18.03 with:
Quote:
Attachments: do not provide anymore attachments content in XML by default, reducing XML output size
The patch (which my "custom" build of MediaInfo v18.03.1 already contained) is now "officially" included in MediaInfo v18.05. According to the changelog, there were no other changes regarding XML output in MediaInfo v18.05.

I think you should test whether your MediaInfo.exe (downloaded from the MediaArea website) works correctly outside of LameXP – when called with options "--Output=XML" and "--Full" plus "--Cover_Data=base64".

Just did this with an MP3 containing a cover. The output looks OK to me, here is the result.txt file:
https://www.sendspace.com/file/mw2339

The commandline was:
Mediainfo.exe "--Output=XML" "--Full" "--Cover_Data=base64" i:\test.mp3 >i:\result.txt

LameXP rejects the file with a "format not recognized" error.


Cheers

Okay, I know why that happens: We check the "creatingLibrary" version in the XML output. When using the "built-in" MediaInfo binary, then the expected version of MediaInfo is known and thus the check will succeed – provided that the XML output is correct. But when using an "external" MediaInfo binary, the version of MediaInfo is not known beforehand, and therefore the internal (expected) version is set to UINT_MAX. This makes the "creatingLibrary" check always fail.

Please try with this version:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/mul...0.zip/download

Yes, this test version fixes it, thanks a lot...

It also seems that I can use this executable as a hotfix for the stable version (it does not have a built-in timebomb like the beta versions). Nice...

Hey, I just tried to use LameXP for the first time. And I can't make it work! Trying to convert wma to mp3. Isn't that possible? Here is the error message:



LameXP v4.16 (Build #2134), compiled on 2018-04-30 at 14:48:13

The format of this file is NOT supported:

Congratulations, on your first post you already discovered a major bug in the latest LameXP version...

I can confirm your issue, WMA v2 sources are rejected by the current LameXP version. I went back to the previous stable version 4.15, and this version has no problems with these sources.

Time for a hotfix...


Cheers
manolito


And a general rant:
After going back to a previous stable version I noticed that even for stable versions there is a time bomb of 1 year. I think that this is plain stupid. For Alpha, Beta or RC versions I can understand, but not for stable versions. Users may have valid reasons to stick to older stable versions, this latest WMA bug is a good example. Please stop imposing your views on users...

It appears that MediaInfo now reports the format version of WMA streams as "N" rather than "Version N", which is why your WMA file was not recognized correctly

Please try with the new TEST build:

Well, that worked! And man, that's perhaps the first time I've really given my computer a workout. 99% CPU for 1.6 hours!

And not only that, I intercut the original wav, the wma I made from that wav, and the mp3 I made from the wma. I can't tell the difference!

Great program! Thanks a lot!
