Hello and nice to meet you! I am very happy to be a registered user of MuvAudio3 and MuvUnder Cover. I compared against a lot of other softwares and was happiest with the conversion quality and reliability of yours. I am also happy to see you based in Utah in the US
I am sorry to bring up this issue but as a new user I want to address things as they come and couldn't find a resolution to this. I'm using MuvAudio3 ver 188.8.131.52 on a home theater PC built with Gigabyte GA-E7AUM-DS2H motherboard, Intel dual core E7400, 8GB Ram, 64GB SSD Boot Drive, 1TB Western Digital SATA Raid 1 for media storage and conversions, running Win 7 64bit. I set MuvAudio to use Realtek High Def Audio for the conversions. My system is connected to my receiver using optical SPDIF.
Muvaudio speed assessment rates 2976 and recommends 18 conversions at a time. Worried about finding audio problems later I bumped the vac from 29 down to 20 and manually set 15 conversions at a time just to be safe.
As far as I know this is working (but I do miss the speed of the defaults), but whenever I am converting my files, usually a few hundred at a time, I get a system dialog popping up that Muvaudio.child has stopped working. Conversions seem to continue even when this popup is showing. If I am nearby I simply "x" out of the dialog and let it continue.
If I'm not mistaken whenever this happens it drops a file into the failed list. I usually get a file that "failed to start within 60 seconds" or "the process that was converting this file has stopped unexpectedly" or something like that. After the remaining files are finished I simply retry the failed files and they convert as usual.
Any thoughts on what I might be able to do or is this a non-issue? It concerns me that the conversions will suffer when the system dialog is stitting there stealing focus. I wish there was a way to automatically compare copies of mp3 against their orginals. I tried another popular conversion software that purported to do that but it never seemed to work and the output typically skipped and popped so it accomplished nothing.
It's not realistic to check the audio on all the converted files but so far what I've listened to seems fine.
