Bug Description

This may be a duplicate of 995862, but I do not have enough information.

Encoding a flac audio file:

$ file 04-Hounds.flac
04-Hounds.flac: FLAC audio bitstream data, 24 bit, mono, 44.1 kHz, 12084380 samples

Produces an empty output file.

I have attached the output of soundconverter -d and strace soundconverter converting a flac to a wav, unsuccessfully. I get similar results converting to an mp3 or ogg.

This is likely the wrong GStreamer pipeline usage of audioresample and audioconvert, which has been corrected in SoundConverter post 2.0.4 around Feb 2013. Using 2.0.4 without any patches should be deprecated. There have been *many* fixes applied to SoundConverter post 2.0.4.

summary: - Cannot convert flac to other types of file

I agree with Michael. Upgrading to the latest version is recommended.

Got the same issue.

When I try to convert from FLAC to *any* I receive a general error:
