Way to see version of Flac used to encode file?


#1

Hello,

For FLAC files is there a way to see the version of the encoder used for the file e.g. 1.1.2, 1.1.3 etc?

Thanks!

It's available via %_tool%

Kind regards,

Thanks Florian! I knew you'd have the answer.

Also In my column for Tags is there a way to say "if the tag is FLAC, show the %_tool% otherwise show the %_id3v2_character_encoding% value?

My current value for the Tag column is %_tag% %_id3v2_character_encoding% %_tool%

Thanks!
Paul

Hi Paul,

you can use $if($eql(%_extension%,mp3),%_id3v2_character_encoding%,%_tool%) to achieve this. Please also have a look at this help topic for more scripting functions.

Kind regards,
Florian

Thanks Florian, I just noticed that Flac 1.2.0 was out and so was converting all of my older files.
