Unhappy Cannot convert .wav file with flac


Dear All

I am unable to encode a file with flac.

My command was : flac --best test.wav

but it shows message with error like :

# flac --best bugsbunny1.wav

flac 1.1.0, Copyright (C) 2000,2001,2002,2003 Josh Coalson
flac comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY. This is free software, and you are
welcome to redistribute it under certain conditions. Type `flac' for details.

options: -P 4096 -b 4608 -m -l 12 -e -q 0 -r 0,6

bugsbunny1.wav: ERROR initializing encoder
state = 14:FLAC__STREAM_ENCODER_NOT_STREAMABLE


____________

Flac version was flac-1.1.0
Distro is - Fedora Core 1


Plz tell me what is the error and convey the right command

This site uses a different tool entitled shntool to convert wav to flac.
http://opensource.weblogsinc.com/200...o-mp3-or-flac/


The tool that they use to convert waves to flac for fedora
http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/packages/shntool/

Hope this helps,

On another note.

Try: flac -8 inputfile outputfile -8 represents the highest quality where -0 represents the lowest. Hope this helps

ARe you trying to make multiple .wav files into a single flac file? In that case I would probably make all the waves into one large one... Im not entirely sure if flac has the capability to convert multiple waves to a single flac.... Might have to look into it.

I was tinkering with flac.... I can convert multiple waves into their respected names flac filenames via
Code:
flac -8 *.wav
This automatically converts all wav files in that directory to their flac counterparts.
If I use flac -b you have to put a blocksize number. I dont believe this is the option you wanted?
