  1. You have to select "AddFilter" & add manually. Then select Prefer . This is in MPC-HC Options . The lower window will populate it self when you do this. This makes MPC-HC prefer the LAV filters. It won't do anything to ImgBurn & how it works with a Cue.
  2. @ dbminter , Do you have your MPC-HC settings like this :
  3. I believe it is because you have madFlac installed. Try this in the Run box regsvr32 /u madFlac.ax Then see if the LAV filters display in the system tray when ImgBurn is analyzing Flac files for a Cue. The LAV filters only display in the systray during the analyze. The same way they only display when MPC-HC is playing a file. To put it back just use regsvr32 madFlac.ax This can be done from an Administrative Command Prompt also but it has to be cded to the specific location of the madFlac.ax . For example: cd \Windows\System32 I don't know how K-Lite updates but if it doesn't regularly the LAV filters are probably an old version.
  4. I downloaded the last version of madFLAC: madFlac-1.10 . This was written in 2011. I didn't use the InstallFilter.exe or install.bat. I did a manual install of the madFlac.ax & libFLAC.dll to my Windows/System32 folder. Then I registered madFlac.ax with regsvr32 in the Run window. The I tested with ImgBurn: Create Cue File. I browsed for a FLAC file & selected it. Using the right click of the FLAC file & selected Display DirectShow Filter List. This is what I got: DirectShow Filter List: 1. -> madFlac (The Pusher (Live at The Matrix, San Francisco 1967).flac) (Vendor Info: Unknown) 2. -> AC3Filter (Vendor Info: Unknown) 3. -> Sample Grabber (Vendor Info: Unknown) 4. -> Null Renderer (Vendor Info: Unknown) This is with the flac still checked in LAV filters. So madFLAC is selected instead of LAV when it is installed. That explains why your OS is using madFlac over LAV for FLAC files. I then unregistered madFlac.ax with regsvr32 /u in the Run window. So now my OS is back like it was & show this: DirectShow Filter List: 1. -> Source (Vendor Info: Unknown) 2. -> LAV Splitter (Vendor Info: Unknown) 3. -> LAV Audio Decoder (Vendor Info: Unknown) 4. -> Sample Grabber (Vendor Info: Unknown) 5. -> Null Renderer (Vendor Info: Unknown)
  5. I don't have any explanation for why your OS needs madFLAC for ImgBurn to work with FLAC files. When mine only needs the LAV filters. Both apparently need the Microsoft sample grabber and null renderer that are part of the qedit.dll. What does it show when you right click on a FLAC file in the.CUE & select "Display DirectShoe Filter List" ? I have my LAV filters also checked to show in the systray when they're being used. If you can check that box . See if they will show in the systray.
  6. @ dbminter I'm not sure with your setup. It may be part of the K-Lite Codec Pack Mega & the LAV configurations would be in it. Since I don't have it I can't say for sure For my OS I can access LAV Filters from my Programs Menu. This is installed when I install the LAV filters as standalone filters. This is what it looks like on my OS: In the Start Programs Menu:
  7. I understood that. I was pointing out that I didn't need to do that to get ImgBurn to import FLAC files. I have necessary codecs installed but I don't have a "codec pack" like K-Lite . I'm using Windows 7 . If you are using Windows 10 that might be the difference as it might need madFLAC to import FLAC files. Have you checked the LAV configurations to see if flac is checked ?
  8. Thanks for your patience LIGHTNING UK! I'm not having any problems creating .cue files from FLAC or any other audio format I've tried. Just trying to learn some more. @ dbminter I don't have madFlac installed. When I "browse for a file" from the "Create Cue File" in ImgBurn the LAV filters being used show in my systray like in this image: This is the LAV Splitter & the LAV Audio Decoder I do have flac checked in the "Input Formats" in the splitter & in "Formats" in the Audio decoder .
  9. Thanks LIGHTNING UK! , With some searching I found this: LAV Filters are a set of open-source DirectShow filters. I believe ImgBurn is only using the Source file then the LAV Splitter & LAV Audio Decoder. Since I have the File Merit of Sample Grabber & Null Renderer set to "Do not use". I believe ImgBurn is detecting those but not actually using them. This is what GraphStudio shows: The Default DirectSound Device is using the MS quartz.dll . I believe ImgBurn is doing it the same or similarly. Do you believe this is correct ?
  10. @ LIGHTNING UK! I followed your instructions to right click on a FLAC file in the Create Cue File being created. This is the result: 1. -> Source (Vendor Info: Unknown) 2. -> LAV Splitter (Vendor Info: Unknown) 3. -> LAV Audio Decoder (Vendor Info: Unknown) 4. -> Sample Grabber (Vendor Info: Unknown) 5. -> Null Renderer (Vendor Info: Unknown) Sample Grabber & Null Renderer are related to Microsoft qedit.dll. Their File Merit is set to 00200000 which is "Do not use". I tried a couple of softwares you suggested in other topics: InstalledCodec & DirectShow Filter Manager . I also have other software that does about the same. None of these show : Source (Vendor Info: Unknown) or just Source. Would you explain the meaning of "Source (Vendor Info: Unknown)" ? I believe I understand that Sample Grabber & Null Renderer are not being used. If Source means the FLAC file itself then I understand what that is. I believe that LAV Splitter & LAV Audio Decoder are what ImgBurn is using to Analyze FLAC & other audio files. Is this correct from what is shown ? Just to note so far ImgBurn hasn't had a problem for me creating a .cue & has successfully analyzed all audio files I've tried. I've even burned some to an Audio CD RW without a problem. To test if they would burn. I've even tried to find an audio file that would fail to analyze but I haven't so far. BTW any other forum member that wants to post is welcome to do so.
  11. I don't have madFLAC installed. This is the MediaInfo of the 24 bit FLAC I tested with. General Complete name : H:\MUSIC\The Pusher (Live at The Matrix, San Francisco 1967).flac Format : FLAC Format/Info : Free Lossless Audio Codec File size : 199 MiB Duration : 21 min 24 s Overall bit rate mode : Variable Overall bit rate : 1 297 kb/s Audio Format : FLAC Format/Info : Free Lossless Audio Codec Duration : 21 min 24 s Bit rate mode : Variable Bit rate : 1 297 kb/s Channel(s) : 2 channels Channel positions : Front: L R Sampling rate : 44.1 kHz Bit depth : 24 bits Stream size : 199 MiB (100%) Writing library : libFLAC 1.3.0 (UTC 2013-05-26)
  12. I agree that there is no way to send without violating copyright laws. If you decide that isn't too important Google drive & DropBox work for this. Since it is a corrupt file likely it doesn't violate copyright technically. Being that it isn't a copy of the copyrighted file. I have eac3to somewhere.It isn't installed . I'm looking on an external hard drive for it. @ LIGHTNING UK! This is what the 24 bit FLAC file shows:
  13. LIGHTNING UK! Is there a way to tell what filters ImgBurn is using ? As best as I can tell ImgBurn is using LAV filters on my OS. I would like to know if it is using other filters. I just tested a 24 bit FLAC file in ImgBurn cue & it analyzed with no problem. I don't have madflac on my OS.
  14. Do the LAV filters show in your system tray when you add one of these FLAC files to the ImgBurn cue ? Or does it even get that far? I looked up MagCore.dll & this is what I found:
  15. When I create a cue file ImgBurn uses the LAV filters I have installed. I have the LAV filters set to show in the system tray when they are in use. mike_p do you have LAV filters installed ? The ImgBurn log doesn't show any information about the cue file creation. I would like to know if there is a way to see if directshow filters are also being used.
  16. I believe the software that the DVDFlick user changed to was AVStoDVD. It is also freeware like DVDFlick. DVDFlick was OK for it's day which was a long while ago. However it was always temperamental & sometimes worked & other times not. I don't currently have ConvertXtoDVD but I've used the trial in the past & it worked well for me. It is also easier to use than AVStoDVD .
  17. Thanks dbminter. Now I understand. I hadn't watched close enough to notice ImgBurn was doing the analyze when creating a cue file. Now I need to find an odd ball audio file to test with to see if it fails to work.
  18. I'm not sure what you mean by "imported" or "Importing stage"? For my test I created a new cue file from audio files of various kinds. I then opened the cue in Write mode. As far as I could tell the audio files weren't being used until I started the Write to a CD RW. I have some test CD RWs I use so it's no problem to Write to one of those. For me the LAV filters showed up in the system tray as an icon which I have them set to do when they are being used. So I believe these are what were being used for the conversion.
  19. The log didn't have anything I would consider useful for this. You could check out the list of codecs in this topic : Just to note I don't have most of those on my Windows 7 OS.
  20. Hey dbminter , Check this post: You will see a .m4a in my test files . Last song. My .m4a I created but I'm not certain what software I used. I believe either Audacity or dbPowerAmp Music converter . I don't have madflac installed. The FLAC I do have are these: flac-1.3.1-win FLAC Frontend LAV Filters Give me a bit of time & I will get you a log that may help.
  21. That sounds right. I usually don't use AWS. I usually use half the Max speed the DVD blanc is rated at. So for a 16x that would be 8x . If your drive allows that speed. I'm posting some pictures of a movie I did today. I'm using a RW so the speed is much slower set at 2,4x This is Build mode.. This is the movie folder I'm using. It has AUDIO_TS & VIDEO_TS folders. Inside the VIDEO_TS are the standard DVD files .BUP , .IFO , & .VOB . This is selecting Write mode. This is selecting the .ISO . This is the .ISO as the Source in ImgBurn. This is ImgBurn writing the .ISO to the DVD -RW It completed & plays correctly.
  22. What you will be creating using Build mode is the .iso file. I prefer to create an .iso to the hard drive even for a single layer burn(Write). Maybe if you install or have a virtual drive then Mount the .iso created by ImgBurn you will understand the .iso created by ImgBurn better. When you open the virtual drive after mounting the .iso will look like the DVD complaint folders & files that were on the DVD you ripped them from. I use Virtual CloneDrive from Elaborate Bytes but there are others. DVDFab has one also. Both are freeware (or were the last time I checked). For the "file splitting" setting I believe the Default is Auto. That's what it is in ImgBurn on my OS & I don't remember ever changing that setting. Once you have the .iso use ImgBurn Write to Write(burn) the .iso to a blank DVD disc. Also make sure the .iso size will fit on the DVD blank you use. For a single layer DVD blank that is 4.37GB max. I prefer to use 4.35GB as the max myself. If the size is over that you need to use a dual layer DVD blank.
  23. I use build mode for a lot of things . I usually just select the movie title folder. This can Build to a DVD blank or to an .ISO on the hard drive that can be used with ImgBurn Write mode. This will contain all folders & files in the movie title folder. I usually rip a movie without it but many DVDs also have a Jacket folder. That also goes into the .iso if the movie title folder is selected. I've never had the Audio_TS folder cause me a problem. It is usually an empty folder. If it works better for you just use the Video_TS folder. I believe only very old standalones need the Audio_TS folder to play a DVD. I haven't seen one myself but there are music only DVDs that use the Audio_TS folder.
  24. Did you play the source file that you are creating the Video_TS folder from in a media player ? VLC or MPC-HC should be good for this. Did you test the Video_TS folder created in a media player to see if it will play before attempting to burn it ? Did you try DVDShrink as first suggested by dbminter to see if the Video_TS folder gave an error ? @ dbminter , I read a bit too fast & missed the DVDShrink in your earlier post.
  25. I used DVDFlick way back & even then it was hit & miss. Try Open Files with DVDShrink with the VIDEO_TS folder you created. I've found DVDShrink a good tester . If it gives an error then that Video_TS probably won't write(burn) to disc. I hope it's OK to recommend this software here. Try AVStoDVD instead of DVDFlick. There is some learning curve on it but you should get a playable burnable file. One other thing to check: Will the file you are trying to convert with DVDFlick play in any media player ? VLC for example.
