Re: Not seeing the right Bit Rate for FLAC files

Surely this should be stream size not file size, right? Otherwise the file's metadata is going to have an impact on its bitrate which is not correct. True, and I guess a problem if one pastes entire opera librettos or large cover art into the metadata. But I would think the relative magnitude would...

Re: Quick Search: Why doesn't {:Audio} find my audio files?

You are here since 7 years. And you wouldn't be able to update some code once a year (there aren't that many ongoing changes to quicksearch, it is already rather mature)? And my only point on this is: You want a wizard. XY isn't known for it's wizards, right? So why don't you write one and let othe...

Re: Not seeing the right Bit Rate for FLAC files

Wonderful! And I would also add that it works fine for files that have had their gain increased internally, which results in a larger size and bit rate.

Re: Quick Search: Why doesn't {:Audio} find my audio files?

[quote="highend"] /types={:Audio} Back to this solution -- I'm afraid it's not working in the current beta version. I enter that string verbatim in QS and I get Error 14 "Out of string space" . And when I do it i n XYplorer /fresh, it returns the results but then the program crashes . I wonder if th...

Re: Quick Search: Why doesn't {:Audio} find my audio files?

I wouldn't want to be involved in maintaining it and keeping it in sync with the main program. No comment... My only point here is that such a feature should necessarily be kept in sync with main program, which requires a committed author for the long term, as I see with other scripted extensions h...

Re: Not seeing the right Bit Rate for FLAC files

I just re-researched this and found a totally different BitRate formula, hmmm: BitRate = (FileSizeInBytes * 8) / TimeInSeconds Would that formula give you the expected results? Yes, it most certainly does, if you use the actual file size on disk. And it works for multi-channel files, WAV and presum...

Write one? HTML for the gui is the way to go here

Is this possible to do now? Even so, I wouldn't want to be involved in maintaining it and keeping it in sync with the main program.

Re: Not seeing the right Bit Rate for FLAC files

The Bit Rate is calculated the usual way AFAIK: bit_rate = ((sample_rate / 1000) * bits_per_sample * channels) Those values are directly read from the file bytes by XY. Don't know what I could improve here. Why can't you instead just show here and everywhere else the Bit rate that you show in the M...

Quick Search: Why doesn't {:Audio} find my audio files?

I'm in Quick Search (QS), I pasted in from XYplorer Help the string {:Audio} but it returns nothing, even though the files are there, in subfolders. What am I doing wrong here? I often struggle with the QS search syntax and really wish that the popup help window was more comprehensive and even bette...

Not seeing the right Bit Rate for FLAC files

In either the tooltip or custom Bit Rate column for FLAC files, I'm always seeing a much larger, fixed rate than I expect and different from what I see in other programs (like Foobar2000 or MediaInfo), or even from what is shown in XYplorer's Metadata window for these files. For example, I have a re...

Re: How to persist visual filter BUT only for a particular TAB?

Here's a protocol with /fresh that reproduces the problem. It looks like this may be a feature (or bug) for newly created tabs and the default tab, when also using locked home tabs. But it's not a feature that I want at all. Seems to me there should be a separate setting that restricts the filter to...

Re: Running /fresh starts with some previous tabs

And the paths of these tabs are (because /fresh starts with 4 predefined ones)? Ok, that explains it then. It's the predefined tabs: This PC, Documents, Downloads, and <user>. What tricked me was the Downloads folder which appears as U:\jerry\download because I relocated Downloads to that custom lo...

Running /fresh starts with some previous tabs

When I run XYplorer /fresh, I am seeing 3 previous tabs to the right of the This PC tab. That happens even if I first remove the Fresh subdirectory in my XY data folder. And the tab that appear aren't even the ones that were there when I last exited, even with saving. This shouldn't happen, right?

Re: How to persist visual filter BUT only for a particular TAB?

I'll try to come up with a reproducible protocol using /fresh. So there should be no feature that produces this effect, apart from doing New Tab on an existing tab with persisted visual filter?

How to persist visual filter BUT only for a particular TAB?

I often want the visual filter to remain in effect for just a particular tab. So I select Persist Visual Filters Across Folders and that works initially, but I then find the same filter later applied to other opened tabs, which I don't want. How can the filter be restricted to just a particular tab?
