Or just integrate FFmpeg itself, since I think that's what WinLoud uses somehow or other under the covers (useful indeed).manolito wrote:Thanks very much Muxson for this nice tool...
Regarding the virus alerts this is getting worse all the time with the usual Antivirus software. The WinLoud executables are compiled AutoIt scripts, and many AV tools mark those executables as malware no matter what. The same is true for compiled batch files and for UPXed executables. Just plain stupid, AV software is getting more and more useless these days.
For anyone who is still paranoid, there are some (not exactly legal) AutoIt decompilers available, and Muxson did not make any efforts to conceal his source code. So go ahead and check the code, there is nothing suspicious in it IMO...
This brings me to another question for Muxson:
Neither your website nor the WinLoud download tells me much about your license. Is it GPL, is it just free but not open source, can I use it in one of my plugins I made for other software?
The reason I ask is that I would like to integrate your WinLoudCLI tool into my audio normalization plugin for AVStoDVD, and I would also like to nag the author of DVDStyler to add this method to his software. Right now both these programs can use the normal EBU R128 or the ReplayGain methods with added clipping protection, but there is no way to add a peak limiter (i.e. real dynamic compression) if the target LUFS value would cause clipping. In these cases the target LUFS is decreased to avoid clipping, but of course this is counterproductive if your goal is a constant perceived loudness.
Whatever, thanks again for this nice tool,
I wish you and everyone else on this forum a very Happy New Year...
It appears libebur is LGPL
so hopefully you're good there, just build an LGPL ffmpeg anyway that has it (my script has an option for it here https://github.com/rdp/ffmpeg-windows-build-helpers as well, if helpful.
