Un-necessary decoding of uncompressed WAV files

Bug #49201 reported by Amos Brocco
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gnomebaker (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Gnomebaker "decodes" uncompressed WAV files as they where mp3, which causes a wasting of space on disk (and time) during the burning process.

Steps to reproduce:

1) Add a WAV file (e.g. ripped from a cd with cdda2wav)
2) Start burning
3) gnomebaker will "decode" files althrough they are already in the correct format

Am I correct in assuming that you are trying to burn these wav files to audio cd. If this is the case then it will need to convert the wav file 2 cdda format in order for it to play in a cd player.

If I understood correctly... cdda uses the same PCM encoding as WAV, so the conversion is just a matter of dropping the headers (if the wav is 44.1KHz, Stereo). If I'm right, I don't see a reason not to do this in "realtime", instead of using 600MB on disk.
