mppenc and wav files with the extension .tmp
I would like to use KaudioCreator, which is included in KDE, to rip my CD's and encode them in Musepack format. However, it seems that mppenc refuses to accept a WAV file with the extension .tmp. The thing is that oggenc and flac do not have any problems with this.

I am hoping that someone knows how to modify the source to let it also accept .tmp files. The best would be ofcourse that it recognized it was a wav file, but a dirty hack would suffice.

This will indeed be a nasty hack, but an easy task for most Linux users I know. If anyone's up for the (silly) task, you are welcome to help frodoontop.

I got annoyed by this also, and made a patch for kaudiocreator (seemed the simplest thing to do) and it will be included in KDE 3.3.1 and KDE 3.4 :)

Heaven't checked though. Then again maybe it's easier indeed to hack kde istead. :)

Well, if at all possible, I would love to find a way to use musepack with KaudioCreator. Its a decent bundled piece of software for ripping files and it needs musepack.

In latest KDE version it is fixed. At least for me Kaudiocreator works, though you might have to delete the settings folder. Somewhere in .kde I believe.
