Yesterday night, I published Opus GUI v1.12.2:
This release updates once again the Google Drive API. It also adds an option that can be changed by modifying the file called opus_gui.exe.config to specify the number of files that can be downloaded at a time when converting audio files from your Google Drive account. More information about this can be found here.
As usual, you can download this release from GitHub by clicking here.
Today, I have released Opus GUI v1.12:
This new version adds support for Google Drive, allowing you to encode your music stored in your account. Encoded files are stored locally.
When you press the Google Drive button for the first time, you’ll be redirected to a Quick Start guide where you only need to follow the Step 1. After that, download the file “credentials.json” and place it in the same folder where Opus GUI is located. You’ll need to authorize your Google Drive account and after that, your Drive content will show up. You can then browse and select the files you want to encode.
You can download this new version at GitHub. Click here to download it.
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 more bits to those complex audio sections, hence having a better quality.
You can download this new version at the project’s GitHub release page by clicking here.
I also posted the latest opus-tools build:
You can download it here.
Today, I have released Opus GUI v1.9:
This new release allows you to click on the opusenc and ffmpeg version labels to copy the text to your clipboard. This allows you to create folders by pasting the version string from the clipboard to better organize your content if you want to maintain the encodes organized by encoder version. This could be also useful if you want to store the files in folders named with the encoder version to compare them against other versions.
The other change this version provides is that if ffmpeg does not exist in your system and you want to encode MP3 or M4A audio files, these will simply be skipped as opusenc cannot encode those file formats.
You can download this release at the Opus GUI project repo here: https://github.com/moisesmcardona/opus_gui/releases/tag/v1.9
I hope you enjoy this new release!
