Bug Description

Binary package hint: soundconverter

I dont know how it is already implement but sound-converter know how to skip useless files laready, but recently I found that it will not skip, and will attempt to process a Protected Macromedia Director Movie DXR file. This causes something in the program to cause it to hang and eventually freeze up. Sound-converter will than no longer process anymore files and must be "Force Quitted".

I think .DXR's should be added to the exclusion rules.

Otherwise, sound-converter is a great program. Thanks to the devs.

It's even more subtle than you though.
SoundConverter actually find an error decoding the file, but do not act accordingly.
I commit a fix asap.
And thank you for such a good report!

No problem, I like reporting bugs. I wish I could program myself, but Im a lamer. Thanks again.

Changed in soundconverter (Ubuntu):
status: New → Fix Committed

So Im changing status to Fixed.

I check the SoundConverter homepage and saw it has been fixed not to mention I saw my name, which makes me wish I was competent enough to program more so than the usual.

This is a great program, I cant tell you how much I use this for converting to OGG for my Sansa.

Anyway, Thanks!

Fixed in 1.5.0
