and that's what leads to faulty implementations.

doveryai, no proveryai

the point of the procedures is to prevent people missing things. blind trust has little utility.

taking shortcuts can also waste time. that's the point u seem to miss.

not nearly as clever as you intend. just b/c the devs state a truism, (a SOP), does not mean they invented it, or that its credible b/c they happen to utilize it. they simply recognize the worthiness of such a paradigm. its a universal truth, and not a controversial one.

in the last few recent posts, you have drawn conclusions about what this problem is or is not. you complain about me bringing m4a in but you mention this in the FLAC thread, (where DrO can NO longer reproduce btw). you state you don't think its your files. and so on... one need only read your posts to see that you have reached many conclusions. they may or may not be correct. the point, as I see it, is that I can neither verify, or disprove, your assertions conclusively, if you will not provide steps nor files. that's your choice, I accept it, c'est la vie. the only reason i'm still posting is to explain my POV.

likely so, i'd say.
