#519 new defect

Import/decode .flac

Reported by: astrange Owned by:
Priority: normal Milestone: 1.3
Component: import Version: 1.2.2
Severity: normal Keywords:


The attached FLAC import patch doesn't seem to work - profile shows QT constantly opening and closing XiphQT FLAC in import_with_idle.

I think this is because our extradata is formatted wrong.

Ways to fix this:

  • refactor DescExt_XiphFLAC in such a way that it can be shared with FFAvi
  • implement our own FLAC decoder with a different fourcc (non-Xiph FLAC?). Same for Vorbis if we think the Xiph Vorbis extradata format is unnecessarily complicated.
