Unhappy mppenc is mpcenc?

at the risk of being repeatedly slapped about the head..
have downloaded the new sv8 package to start testing and both eac and foobar ask me to tell it where mppenc is and i can't cos its now called mpcenc.
if i rename mppenc to mpcenc it will not encode.
sorry if this is a basic question but have been using musepack for a long time and i never work in the dos arena...i rely totally on windows frontend gui's
(be gentle with me)
cheers for any advice

It is not important at all what will be the name of the encoder.
I've just tried with EAC (v0.99pb3) and it works with arbitrary file name of the external encoder (EAC -> External Compression).
If you use some older version of EAC, there could be some discrepancy in the command line parameters that the EAC sends to the encoder, though.
In Foobar you probably have to define a new converter (Preferences -> Tools -> Converter -> Add new -> Encoder -> Custom). Then browse to encoder location (again no matter what name does it have) and in the parameter field set for example "--extreme --silent - %d".

thanks for your reply.
tried as you say eac and seemed to encode nicely but none of the tracks will play. i get an error dialogue box saying "file uses intensity stereo,not supported anymore! please decode with command line tool."
foobar i've given up on as its gonna taken an hour and a half to do a 3 minute track (encoding at 0.00-0.4)
getting frustrated so may just stick with sv7 unless someone like yourself can help

help
It seems that you try to play them with old sv7 plugin for Winamp.
Download the new plugin for sv8 and give a try, it should work.

many thanks for your help antonski
eac seems to rip flawlessly (average 20.42x)have put latest winamp plugin in and am listening away as we speak.
i wasn't trying to play the files in winamp before as i don't like winamp (it can't do gapless mix cd's-dispite what people say-theres always a slight hesitation no matter what settings you employ)
i was using quintessential player and that won't touch the files.i suppose i'll have to wait for them to catch up!
i'd also rather use dbpoweramp for cd ripping and at present that don't work either.
seems i'm excitedly jumping the gun.
foobar still don't work for me but then again i don't like it so i'll bin it anyway.
(anything that can't scroll playing song in taskbar just doesn't cut for me)
once again thanks for your help...i'll just have to wait for the other apps to catch up

Hi Scott,

I'm glad that I was able to help you, even with my poor english.
As of the wider musepack sv8 support, maybe you can write to support staff of your favorite programs and suggest them to upgrade their products?
