    Not quite sure, but I think this is some kind of "internal" error in Nero AAC encoder. Maybe we can pin down the exact conditions. Does it happen only with 320 kbps?

    Unfortunately, development of Nero AAC encoder has been discontinued. There was no update for years.

    AFAIK, NeroAAC doesn't support 192 kHz input. QAAC will automatically resample it to 48 kHz, but NeroAAC cannot do this.

    Yes, unfortunately it happens with whatever quality, bitrate or profile I select. I indeed also feared it was because of the 192 khz, but could not find any documents about this online (quick search though). Anyway thanks to both for your answers!

    Hello again. First of all came back to confirm I have been able to successfully convert 192kHz FLAC to 48kHz AAC/MP4, by simply replacing the Nero encoder for the QAAC (thanks to the great manual included in LameXP).

    I have two remaining questions.

    1. I am unable to disable artwork when converting. Track -> Show details -> Artwork -> Right mouse button on cover -> Clear Artwork. This deletes the artwork in LameXP itself, however is still present in the metadata of the file after the encoding completed. My example is from FLAC to AAC/MP4. Also, selecting multiple files and deleting the artwork, only deletes it from the one you've clicked on: not all those you've selected. Am I doing something wrong in this process?
    2. Again about AAC/MP4: Is it somehow possible to change the output from .mp4 container to the .m4a extension?

    There cannot be any cover artwork (or other meta information) in the encoded file, unless it is explicitly embedded.

    But LameXP won't (and can't) instruct QAAC to embed any meta-tags – including cover artwork – unless that meta-data is actually available in LameXP and the option "Write meta information to encoded files" is enabled.

    You can double-check this in the LameXP log. For this purpose, double-click on the corresponding item in the list, after the encoding process has finished. Then check the QAAC command-line.

    Anyway, how do you know that encoded file still contains cover artwork? For example, if your playback application shows cover artwork for the file, it does not necessarily mean the artwork was loaded from the file itself!

    (The playback application might load cover artwork from a separate "cover.jpg" in the same directory, or even fetch it from the Internet)

    If you really which to change the file extension of AAC/MP4 files to the non-standard .m4a extension, you can do this by simply renaming those files, of course

    In LameXP, you could use the "Rename output files" option, on the "Advanced options" tab. Click on "File extensions" and then "Add overwrite".

    Thanks for your reply.

    1. I have one single FLAC file in an otherwise empty folder, with a cover included in its metadata. There is no other file (jpg) in the same folder, nor does my playback application fetch data over the internet. Unchecking the "Write meta information to encoded files" in the Meta Data tab discards the artwork cover, but this option however locks me out from actually renaming other data, for example album title.
    2. My apologies, I have overlooked the overwrite option in LameXP, let alone renaming it manually myself.. (Reason for testing with the non-standard extension is because VLC Android is treating the .mp4 as a video file, and Kodi Android TV doesn't even show the file in its folder..)

    Thanks again!

    I just double-checked that. When I encode a source file that has cover artwork, it gets embedded with QAAC, as expected:

    Note how there no "--artwork" switch passed to QAAC in the second case. Looks like everything works correct on the LameXP side.

    Regarding my last post about failed update search (signature verification failed):
    I wanted to investigate today but now it works without errors.

    So as you assumed the error probably originated from an external source (Windows firewall, Avast behaviour shield, ...).

    I didn't change anything besides patching already present programs. However, error is gone now.

    Hmm, interesting...

    Because the GnuPG process was apparently "blocked" from accessing the downloaded signature file – after the download itself seemed to have completed just fine – the Avast thingy would be my bet.

    Thank you, LoRd_MuldeR.

    I'm a little surprised you didn't include the latest stable build of libopus, but—to be fair—that was released on 12 April, so you might not have had time to include it in v4.18 Alpha-8.



    I use Win 8.1 x64 too. In your opinion, would it be good for me to try the experimental VS2019 binaries? Are you actively looking for feedback on those?

    FWIW, I had to manually download LameXP for a couple of months also due to an auto-update error, but I don't know whether it's related to what's been discussed. That is no longer a problem. (The only AV software I use is the built-in Windows Defender.)

    Thanks!
