    And in a great bit of news for abcde users development, which has slumbered for a while, will be moving along soon with a move to git and many other new developments...

    Steve (abcde main developer) is keen to get a release out and announce the new git site in one go, so a little time yet. Definitely time for fdkaac after that though. I have commit access and would be more than happy to push a patch through if you are interested in producing one?

    Mind you looks like I have to get a working knowledge of git first

    Re: FFmpeg Mplayer VLC - News & Howtos

    Out of curiosity, what is the status of the mplayer/mplayer2 fork these days? Ubuntu still uses the latter, which works well for me, but is there any chance of a reconciliation some time soon? Are we missing anything of importance by Debian's continuing to rely on the mplayer2 code?
    If you ask for help, please have the courtesy to check for responses and thank the people who helped you.

    MPlayer 2 has been a little quiet since October last year while latest MPlayer patch was yesterday:

    Code:
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    r37230 | reimar | 2014-06-29 05:57:15 +1000 (Sun, 29 Jun 2014) | 5 lines
    
    ad_spdif: do not call internal write_packet function directly.
    
    Use av_write_frame instead.
    
    Patch by Jan Andres [jandres gmx net].
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I suspect that Debian has jumped on the wrong media boat, not for the first time either

    BTW a quick and dirty test suggests that fdkaac actually works out of the box with a current abcde. I used AtomicParsley for the tagging (did not investigate fdkaac's tagging ability as this might need some adjustment) and added the following to ~/.abcde.conf:

    Code:
    AACENC=fdkaac
    AACTAG=AtomicParsley
    OUTPUTTYPE="m4a"
    AACENCOPTS="-b 128"
    plus the usual options and this certainly worked for me for a test cd. Hopefully you have time to see if same works for you?
