foo_hdcd ~ Foobar2000 HDCD Decoder

This PCM postprocessor component, currently utilized by the CDDA, WAV, FLAC, and WavPack inputs, will process 16-bit PCM data with HDCD packets into 20-bit PCM. If it fails to find any packet headers within the first 5 seconds of a track, it gives up.

The HDCD status will be indicated in the info variable “hdcd,” retrievable with either %__hdcd% or $info(hdcd). Extra info variables are “hdcd_peak_extend,” “hdcd_transient_filter” and “hdcd_gain.”

Also included is a simple scanner that processes up to 5 seconds of each track selected and reports all tracks which contain HDCD information. If users want it, I will impement a full file scanner that also reports which HDCD features are used throughout the tracks.,79427.0

Those FLACs should still contain HDCD information, and the %__hdcd% info tag should be showing as much in the status bar. (Or in the playlist, if you have a playlist view that updates with dynamic metadata.),79427.msg720656.html#msg720656
