with mppenc, you just need to pass the huge wav through stdin. i'm not sure of the limit of raw files (>4GB?) but for wave it is 4GB.

(mppenc may not detect the input file, a la "ERROR: Unable to read or decode: $FILE" - which i would guess is a 2gb limit in the frontend code...)

so... use mppenc - FILE.mpc < FILE.wav

i tried this on a 16/44.1 wav file at: 4074678804 bytes

the resulting musepack file is 884262 frames (!) and ~385min

lol... seeking is a bitch on this
