About next AVxCAT:  [ in test mode, available at request ]
         - Added Audio tracks supporting attached picture as well wav tracks get icon EAs for WPS rendering if jpg albumart
           exist or was downloaded (winico.exe required for this option - converts winico out of ffmpeg to os/2 ico 64:64)
         - New main popupmenu option (with wawe.exe installed) - Edit elligible audio file (cut, multi-cut, save etc...)
         - if discid cover was already downloaded thru add discid, the corresponding icon into the main list will change to
           the existing one at add time (can be disable/enabled using parm --imbai 0 or 1)
         - show downloaded discid cover thru add discid has now an integrated window instead of the drdialog prompt command
         - Added option to accept or ignore/reject found discid cover
         - Added option (if enabled --mbindex 0/1) to add discid index (limited number) from database if proposed album-art is rejected
         - Added New default path for downloaded covers using discid
         - Added parameter to change default path for downloaded covers to output path (--fld 0/1 [Disable/Enable])
         - Added option to switch from profile dropdown list to Icon pre-fixed profile buttons
         - Added Selected iconbutton profile is saved at AVxCAT file/exit
         - Added Possibility to use customize iconbutton profile (user of external cfg file)
         - Added last Audio/Video icon-profile used saved if using file/exit menu
         - Added [X] "delete" option for user created profiles under [New profile] button
         - Added "Create folder(s)" & "delete folder" under internal filemanager called by [Chg] button for target folder
         - Added "M4A" alac
         - Added "MOV"
         - Added MD5 package used to autocheck downloaded updates (through AVxCAT menu)
         - New ffmpegca.dll
         - Optimized parameters when involving leech (USB CD-ROM, grabbing private CDs)
         - corrected: a wrong video profile
         - corrected: some video option may use incorrect video extension
         - corrected: hung could occure when cdd2wav reads a track having lot of jitter (changed a fixed parameter)
         - included a process to prevent cdda2wav hung on very rare CD's having problems or difficulties with most cddb tools
         - Updated compatibility for metadatas/Tracks Titlle file generated under PM123 or querycddb
         - Somme minor corrections
         - changed a few webcam -> UDP initial settings

Hello Remy.

I haven't work with CD Ripping to MP3 in years.
- Can you please explain me a little bit what does cddbGUI does?
- Does it requires LeechMP3_3-70.exe and ?


Hi Martin,

Only needs  LeechMP3_3-70.exe which includes under package 1 querycddb.exe
Rxutilex dll required

It only allow you to get metadatas / track tiltles with the possibility to select the right found entry of those existing into the database.
under parameters:
Update userid and host ( both together making it your email address - note: "anonymous" "" may work but this is out of gnudb rules and not be used )

Select for the output Use discid ( making the output file compatible as is with coming v2.1.0 AVxCAT or already compatible with v2 after edit/save of the output file copied under AVxCAT cddb lib folder - e.g. can be used instead of cdda2wav results )
or no change which will use default name cddb.out
If none is checked > output file can be renamed to any name using the corresponding field.
The result is saved under the specified "To path"
Specify leechmp3 path
Do not change gnudb database and its port used.
Set drive letter to the one you use for your CD player.
Insert CD
Press run -> querycddb is called
The list of found entries is listed.
If none ! nothing more to do
If one, verifiy entry (stop can be done or without action (tracks / metadatas are get after a max wait time of 5s)
If more than one entry !
Select the right one (the one which seems to be the correct entry for you) - click on the numbered line with title entry
In none are good, click on the abort line
Selection has to be done in a max time of 2'15 minutes or request is canceled to prevent put remote server into timeout state
(remote server has a timeout of 2'30)
Once done, all information are saved into the output file (click on the line having where saved INTO exist to view/edit the result)
A second file is created including the cddb query string usefull for other kind of queries (API, web services...)
This string has: FreeDB discid (usable on Brainz), number of tracks, tracks offsets and time as last number.

From the screen copy, I see that a miss alignment exist under you screen size (will correct it)

Note: If result seems to be helpfull and easy to use like this, a lighter code could be integrated into AVxCAT as an alternative cddb request choice or a get cover option into this GUI.

If some are interested, a little gui to leechmp3 querycddb (as is) 
(you have to set parameters - leechmp3 path, a valid email address according gnudb  rules, specify drive letter and optional output file)

Applications / Re: OSFree Components Under ArcaOS
« on: January 24, 2024, 04:46:23 pm »

Yesterday I tested the "OSFree command line tools" replacing the ones in ArcaOS, without any kinf of impact in the operation of the OS.
This command line tools are open source under the The 3-Clause BSD License according to his webpage.
A light inspection shows that the source code is here:

I tried the "osFree OS/2 Personality Command Line Tools" and  the "", later I will use the ones in "osFree ISO image" which are the newer (2019).
I didn't replace cmd.exe yet.


Do not replace, rename or delete original cmd.exe or some programs (rexx pgms) may have problems.
In some case, a call to cmd fom rexxdialog may be needed to get correct results out of OEM tools

I could reduce near 8% of Dooble low shared storage use after setting following dll highmem
What I see is when dooble is up and first page loaded (qwant lite in my case), about 10Mb of low storage are taken !
It is not a lot but it allow to work safer with other pgms
The one using a lot of storage : libcn0 but can not be set to highmem or many problem may occur   
crypt011 <--  highmem
avform58 <-- highmem
avutil56 <--  highmem
glib20.dll <-- highmem
icu*.dll <-- highmem
unistri2 <-- highmem
gtls30 <-- highmem
ssl10 + ssl11) <-- highmem

Mark various DLL's to load high. Start with "highmem -c \usr\lib\Qt5*dll"

Was already done but idn't change the low shared storage utilization

Q: how to make Dooble not use 50Mb low shared storage ?

Here's the thread,,3174.0.html
Guess someone should raise an issue and get Gregg to rebuild them with Paul's changes.

Right, i forgot this thread.

FYI: AVxCAT V2.1.0 is under test and very close to be GA ...
        For those interested to test it, in addition with bug corrections, several new minor functions where added (download album-art by Discid, add EA's album-art icon nice to see the album cover instead of a generic music icon under WPS etc... FLAC, ALAC, AIFF etc...) and more, please send me a private message if interested to.

The official home is at where a ticket could be filed.
I seem to have alternate mmioFLAC.dll labeled Paul, I'll attach for testing purposes. I can't remember anything about it.

Hi Dave !
You are the best.
This mmioFlac only uses 1Mb ans storage is get back at stop time like when playing wav (from under WPS folder). Good
I didn't notice error during the test and will continue testing it.

Are you talking about mmioFLAC that cames in MMAudioPack?


ArcaOS installed

It all depends on how the IOProc is written.
You can load the whole FLAC file and convert into a WAV file and hold the result in memory. That makes it easy to implement seeks,reads and writes on the converted file (which is necessary as the MMOS2 can really only play/record WAV files). But it comes at a high cost in memory as WAV needs a lot of memory.
The alternative is to work blockwise, if the source format (FLAC in this case) is organized in this way because then, only a block of input data has to be converted but not the whole file. This is more memory friendly but also more difficult to implement (think about a seek half way into the WAV converted file: what would that location match in the FLAC source file?)
I suspect that the FLAC IOProc makes use of a library that is meant to convert a complete FLAC file into a WAV file and therefore that would match the first approach.

Storage should be released at stop play than but I suppose this is an old WPS issue... (due WPS restart releases the storage)
I plaied wav too but I didn't notice any abnormal storage use compared to flac. Next, I created a M3U list of flac and start playing this list from WPS. No extra storage used by this way !

I did more tests.
In fact, there is a problem with flac mmio ! only playing this type of codec makes WPS use 33Mb shared low storage.
flac is today the best option between lower files size without losing quality.

Is there someone which could have a look on this MMIO issue ?

It seems that Dooble is unable to pass cloudflare security !
