Hi there,

with each and every version of SC that I install, I have to go into the convert config file and manually fix that mov to flac conversion (MP4) is NOT using big endian but little endian. I had to do this since version 6.x. I am now at version 7.1 and it still comes with this wrong config file.

Mac OS X on Intel processors can not use big endian. It must use little endian. With big endian, all you get is static noise. Big endian is for the old PowerPC architecture.

Actually I think you should release two different SC distributions, one for PPC based Macs, and one for Intel based Macs, to get this right.

Any comments?

Thanks
Sascha

Bets practise is to raise a bug on http://bugs.slimdevices.com/ that way it can be properly assigned to someone and tracked. Posts on the forum can get lost.

Will open a bug but would appreciate if we could keep discussing this here...

No problem in that :)

Formal bug reports are most definitely welcomed though, they can always be closed if it turns out not to be a bug. I don't mean in this case, just generally.
