    Hi
    In my foobar2000 > components directory there is a folder "qaac".
    I downloaded the bits and pieces from www, but not sure where from.
    Can't remember.

    Download the iTunes or Quicktime installer, unpack the .exe (7za might be able to do this, since 7zip proper can do it under Windows), and use the Application Support .msi installer. Or so I would guess (I use qtaacenc, which needs full Quicktime - I've also never tried it under Wine, IIRC). Considering you can install iTunes under Wine, it should have the ability to install the Application Support package only.

    Seems ok although I am not a keen wine user:

    http://www.andrews-corner.org/samples/luckynight.m4a

    BTW new version of qaac out...

    Edit: So others can critique here is the commandline I used:

    Code:
    wine qaac luckynight.wav -c 64 -r keep --he \
        --album "Treasure Quest Soundtrack" --title "Lucky Night" \
        --track "9" --artist "Jody Marie Gnant" --genre "Soundtrack" \
        --comment "1-minute song sample demonstrating HE_AAC encoding with qaac." \
        -o luckynight.m4a
    And the completed file is as follows:

    Code:
    andrew@skamandros~/media$ mediainfo luckynight.m4a

    Now that I have setup a bash alias for running wine + qaac it does not even look like I am using wine at all

    Re: [HandBrake] FAAC vs FFMPEG or: How to get HE-AAC?

    So to get HE-AAC with qaac from any file the following commandline should work:

    Code:
    ffmpeg -i <input.file> -f wav - | \
           qaac -c 64 -r keep --he - -o <output.m4a>
    But I have used a bash alias:

    Code:
    alias qaac='wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/qaac/x86/qaac.exe'
    just to make things a little simpler Now to assemble the libsndfile extras for qaac....
    You think that's air you're breathing now?
