1. bug in resample code: downsampling from 44101 to 44100 causes
a seg fault. Workaround in place for now: resampling disabled
if input/output samplerates agree to 4 digits.
2. high bitrate encodings have trouble on some hardware players.
Track this down. Probably caused by --strictly-enforce-ISO and
IXMAX_VAL. Try setting IXMAX_VAL back to 8191 and/or
maxmp3buf=8*960 to see if there is a working combination.
note: one of the decoder bugs was identified. It is caused by using
different block sizes on both channels. A parameter need to be
added to Lame to handle workarounds.
3 frontend: code is a complete mess. But it has so many debugged
features it will be a lot of work to re-write.
4. MSVC project files. It would be nice to create a working
MSVC6 workspace, which included all the projects as possible
mp3x.exe (require GTK libs)
ACM codec
directshow codec
I think the only MSVC5 project that we need to preserve is
for lame_enc.dll, since Albert Faber (still?) doesn't use VC6?
But no reason we cant have VC5 and VC6 project files for the dll.
NOGAP encoding:
-nogap: more testing, fix options, test id3 tags?
Can we change id3 tags without reseting the encoder??
At the end of encoding 1.wav, call lame_get_mf_samples_to_encode()
to find the number of non encoded buffered PCM samples. Then
encode samples from 2.wav until these PCM samples have been
encoded, *THEN* call lame_encode_flush_nogap() and close
out file 1.mp3.
NOGAP decoding:
lame --decode --nogap file1.mp3 file2.mp3 file3.mp3
should also work. What needs to be done:
get_audio.c: We need a way to open a second mp3 file, without
calling lame_decode_init() and reinitializing mpglib.
And the mpglib needs to know to look for new Xing
tags at the beginning of file2.mp3 and file3.mp3.
Does stdin work when LAME is compiled to use libsndfile?
(new version of libsndfile will support this - try this out)
LAME has problems with pure DC input. i.e. a square wave with
a frequency well below 20 Hz. Not very important, but it should
be fixed.
mgplib has bugs with i-stereo. flag denoting invalid
i-stereo value (= frame is m/s stereo) is not correct.
lowpass filter: for M/S stereo, use more filtering for the side
channel, less filtering for mid channel. We need to first replace
the polyphase filter with an FIR lowpass filter with finer frequency
resolution before implementing this.
LAME has a 31 point FIR filter used for resampling, which
can also be used as a lowpass. When resampling is done,
use that filter to also lowpass instead of the polyphase filter.
Even when resampling is not needed, should we use an FIR filter
for the lowpass? If it is not too much slower, yes. If it
is slower, then it should be an option since it will produce
higher quality.
We should consider moving the experts options from the *long
help* text into an *experts only* help text. The average Joe gets
knocked down by the huge number of possibilities to setup lame.
Better tonality estimation.
Gpsycho uses predictability, and so needs a delay to detect the tonality
of a sound.
Nspsytune seems to miss tonals when several of them are too narrow.
We would probably need the best of both.
Different ATH handling for sfb21. We are using the minimum value of ath
in each whole sfb. in sfb21 this leads to very high bitrates.
We could perhaps use 2 or 3 ath partitions in sfb21
note: partially done
Use mixed blocks.
Use intensity stereo. This is a must-have for low bitrates, but if the
algorythm is very good it could also be used in every case.
Note: mpg123 (and all derivatives, like xmms and lame/mpglib)
have bugs in the intensity stereo decoding. Bugs have been there
for years since there are very few intensity stereo mp3's out there.
Merge GOGO's fast assembler routines.
It would be nice to save some information whilst encoding
a: wave -> mp3
a RIFF/wave can contain LIST chunks with information
about author, title, etc.
==> could go into TAG fields of resulting mp3
b: mp3 -> mp3
==> we could copy the TAG directly
c: mp3 -> wave
==> copy TAG into LIST chunk
Integrate plusV extensions
To be able to encode as fast as FastEnc
