Collaborating in the exhale project – Part 2

Collaborating in the exhale project – Part 2

Hi everyone, Yesterday, I began working on my second collaboration for the exhale xHE-AAC USAC encoder. This time, I worked on adding an argument to print the software version on the console. The above is the main software, printing its information as well as how to use it. There was no option to print the version only. Ideally, I just wanted a way to print something like exhale version 1.0.3 …..so that I can easily parse it as I do…

My first GitLab contribution: exhale encoder

My first GitLab contribution: exhale encoder

Hi everyone, Yesterday, I collaborated on the exhale xHE-AAC Audio Encoder to add compatibility to compile the project on MinGW on Windows. The exhale project is an Open-Source xHE-AAC USAC encoder. It allows you to encode wave (WAV) files to M4A using this specific codec. Originally, compilation on Windows was done using Visual Studio, and this worked fine, but when compiling it on MSYS2/MinGW, it gave some issues, specifically: It also complained about fprintf_s, so some changes needed to be…

Opus GUI v1.10 released!

Opus GUI v1.10 released!

Hi everyone, Today, I released Opus GUI v1.10: This new version adds support for ffmpeg’s native Opus encoder. I also included the latest x64 release of opusenc. As to what ffmpeg encoder to use, I recommend sticking to ffmpeg libopus, as my own tests revealed some artifact issues using ffmpeg opus. A difference between these 2 is that libopus encodes using variable bitrate while ffmpeg opus encodes only with a constant bitrate. Since libopus use variable bitrate, it can allocate…
