flac related questions

Recommended Posts

like the title says, 2 questions:

1) do flac files use less cpu than aac (did some testing, and flac usually stayed at about 6-7%, whereas aac 9-10%, but flac sometimes had bursts up to 20%, aac only 17%)

2) reason why this is in bugs:

this only happens for FLAC files.

in library view, the tags are not read (unknown artist, genre, etc - i liked the fact that i could go to all songs and, if i do not remember song name, i just type in the artist name by long pressing the menu key... no more with flac).

album art is loaded, and if i go to a song, long press, and hit info, all the fields are filled in correctly. its as if Poweramp goes: yes, i know they are there, i can read them, but i don't want to use them.

when in folder view, the info is displayed, but again if i long press menu and search the artist name, no results are found. i can only search by song title.

hope this is solvable!

thank you for the quick reply!

did not know the processor speed change for number 1, but my question still stands: which one uses more proessor flac or aac? depending on the answer i will encode my collection.

as far as 2 is concerned, i can hardly wait for Poweramp 2.0 to roll out!!!
