[FIXED in version 3.4.0.1] Problems with transcoding offline music

Recommended Posts

evil_beast666
Good afternoon, first of all, congratulate yourself for your good work.

 

Quick context: My library has mp3, flac and some m4a. When I synchronize mp3 I do not use transcoding, but the flac files use a lot of space on my phone and I need to convert them to mp3. Up to here everything is correct.

 

I have the problem when I need to set the bitrate to 320Kbps. I have tried several different test and the maximum bitrate I get is 192Kbps.

 

These are the details of the flac that I used to test:



Input #0, flac, from '01 - Lone Digger.flac':

Summary results:

 

In both test 3 and 4, the bitrate is set to 192Kbps. Maybe I'm wrong but my logic tells me that the correct behavior should follow the rules of the following table:

 

Max bitrate: 0.1 -> transconding 96Kbps

Max bitrate: 0.2 -> transconding 192Kbps

Max bitrate: 0.3 -> transconding 256Kbps

Max bitrate: 0.4 -> transconding 320Kbps

 

This is the screen where I configure the custom max bitrate:

 

5ab7cef8206fb_vivaldi_20180325_172641.pn

 

Is there any way to configure the details of the transconding? Is there any way to do transconding using a bitrate of 320Kbps? Is this the correct or recommended way to use offline flac? Is it possible to add advanced options for the music transcoding?

 

Any criticism, comment or help are welcome.

 

Thank you very much.

Hi again! Some news about this topic?

 

I'm using "3.3.1.27-beta" version and the bug still exist.

 

Thx in advance.

Hi, it will require an app update as well. We're still looking into it. Thanks.

I can confirm this bug has been fixed in the version "3.4.0.1 beta" (finally, it wasn't necessary app update :-\)

 

If I set 0.3 or 0.4 in my sync options, flac file will transcode properly to 320kbits MP3.

 

I'm very happy now! Thx! :D
