Re: Trader's Little Helper

I found an error when verifying the ffp and md5 files included in a Bill Monroe torrent. Several songs have apostrophes in them, such as "I've Lived A Lot In My Time," for example. When I double click the ffp or md5 file TLH opens as it should. i press verify and it runs throu all the files and verifies the checksum. However, on files with apostrophes in the name it says:


-- snip --
Line 03: file '01 - My Sweet Blue Eyed Darlin.flac' verified ok (checksum matches).
Line 04: file '02 - I€™ve Lived A Lot In My Time.flac' does not exist or cannot be opened.
Line 05: file '03 - Bluegrass Breakdown.flac' verified ok (checksum matches).
-- snip --

The flac files play fine and I can see nothing wrong with them. Any idea?

Thanks for the great program.

Re: Trader's Little Helper

try running the folder against the actual flac tool in command line, they should verify.

Re: Trader's Little Helper

@teanertiner: Are you running the latest release (v2.7.0 build 172)? Upgrade if necessary (http://tlh.easytree.org). If you are on the latest one and the error still occurs please contact me via pm or email.

decodes don't

TLH 2.7.0(172) is working perfectly on one of my XP Pro machines. On the other, even when filesets Verify with their MD5 checksum, a

SHN decode says "No errors" but the Process rows all say "initializing" and no files are created.

FLAC decode fails with the error "file is corrupt, or decoder does not work properly".

Anything I can try please before I un-/re-install?

oops, never mind, I just figured out that for some reason Comodo is sandboxing it on that machine and never mentioning that.

Re: Trader's Little Helper

Upgrading to the recent release certainly solved the issues for me concerning otherwise 'weird' characters (apostrophes, slashes, arrows, etc) in filenames....

Re: Trader's Little Helper

So, I tried running TLH and doing some simple operations on a dual 3ghz xeon box w/ 8gb ram (win2k, fully patched), thinking it would fly through the files. It definitely did not, instead pretty much slowing to a crawl, if not hanging the process. Any ideas why?

I haven't installed the actual flac tools from sourceforge, shorten, mdt5sum or mkwact to see how those perform respectively... I will report back.

Re: Trader's Little Helper

I've gotten this before:



Where it gets to 100%, but never gives the sucessful green dialogue. As you can see, the file says 0kb on the right (in the folder). The other 2 files were successful. The file not successful is almost 3GB in size. This is left for about an hour, when I screen capped this.

Could this be a case of swapfile space getting overloaded? I don't have a lot of space on C drive, but most things I can change my swapfile parameters. I'm not sure if it's possible in tlh...

I downloaded the latest version, I probably already had it, since the latest seems to be from 2011...

Re: Trader's Little Helper

I don't think this has anything to do with the swapfile. Really hard to tell what's going wrong...

Was there enough space on drive V:\? Could you cancel the encoding process via Cancel button, or didn't TLH respond anymore so you had to kill it via Windows Taskmanager?

Are familiar with using the Windows command prompt? If yes, you could test encoding without using TLH to see if it's a TLH issue or something else...

Robert

PS: The lastest TLH release is from May 2011 (v2.7.0.172).

Re: Trader's Little Helper

Yes, I has 200GB free on drive V. I was able to turn it off, no problem. Yes, that's the version I have - I think it was the one I had previous.

Not sure what you mean about command prompt.

Re: Trader's Little Helper

Just created a wav file with a size as big as your master.WAV file on an external USB drive. No problems at all when encoding it to FLAC format (level 8) using TLH. I'd really appreciate it if you could test whether or not encoding works when using the flac encoder directly. Please do as follows:

1) Open Windows Explorer.

2) There is a subfolder CmdlineApps in the installation folder of TLH. Copy the file flac.exe from that subfolder to the folder on drive V where your file master.WAV is located in.

3) Press and hold the Shift key, then right-click on that folder on drive V.

4) A context menu will pop up. Click on Open command window here to open a command prompt window. Release the Shift key.

4) Enter flac -8 "master.WAV", and hit <Return> to start encoding.

5) In the command prompt window the encoding progress will be shown. If everythings is fine you'll get to 100%, and then something like master.WAV: wrote ... bytes, ratio=0,... will be displayed. Else there will be some warning and/or error message(s) - please post a screenshot.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Robert

Re: Trader's Little Helper

You know something strange? I didn't do anything w/ the file & it now says 5GB. IDK why it said 3GB earlier, but, maybe that would be why?
