    Install QT 7.2.

    Tried that, couldn't, despite getting rid of 7.3 receipt, it still said I had a later version installed.
  • Chris CA Level 9 (78,695 points)
    Yeah, there's something else that needs to be deleted. I don't remember right off.
    I'll check in a bit.

    I should have said it makes the process more complicated and more time-consuming. Jointogether won't join m4a files with passthough if the bitrates are different. JT 5.13 also appears to have a bug, which has been reported in ilounge, as it gives error codes when trying to encode m4a's. I'm sticking with JT 5.12 for now.

    I haven't seen Audiobook Builder before, but I dislike having to dish out money for yet another piece of software to do something that was easy enough to do with only JoinTogether before the "updates."

    It is a problem for some. For example, I have audiorecordings made with iTalk that I need to export at 128 kbps. So now it takes more steps to convert them. Users should have been warned about the change before updating.

    Delete the iTunesX.pkg from HD>Library>Receipts.

    How has this not been fixed! We WILL get a QuickTime update soon however; http://www.theregister.co.uk/2007/11/29/newquicktimeexploit/

    but fixing the CBR problem is not guaranteed at all
  • Chris CA Level 9 (78,695 points)
    iTunes never really did CBR. Unchecking VBR gave you ABR, which is what is showing now.
  • txmeeks Level 1 (0 points)
    I know it never REALLY did CBR but it did show songs as having the same bit rates (even if they were not true). This is the function that I, and apparently many others want back in QuickTime!

    If iTunes weren't free I'd be pretty ****** that it has been broken for this long too. As it is I've got a few discs piling up which I won't import until Apple fixes the busted constant bitrate.
  • Chris CA Level 9 (78,695 points)
    Not trying to stir anything up or tick off anyone but I really don't understand. You are not gonna import because 128 (or whatever) looks better than the actual import rate?

    It imported at 123 before but it displayed 128.
    Now it actually shows 123 as it was imported.
    So what?

    I believe I have tried everything on this message board to get Quicktime 7.3 off my harddrive. Even this most recent suggestion of deleting the ItunesX receipt. I can't get QT 7.3 off my harddrive. HOW DO I DO IT, WITH EVERY LAST STEP?

    Because it is still there, I can't install 7.2.

    I've been reading about how Itunes has never truly delivered 128 kbps. But, when I import at 128, I am sometimes getting as low as 100 kbps. And it's not set at VBR. The difference between 100 and 128 IS audible.

    1. How can I REALLY and FULLY get QT 7.3 off my harddrive, so I can deal with this kbps issue?
    2. When is Apple likely to correct this issue?

    Thank you.

    You obviously did not read the whole thread. Read it if you want to know.
  • Chris CA Level 9 (78,695 points)
    Yes, I did read the entire thread.
    Most people (including you) are simply complaining that it does not read 128 or 256 or whatever they have selected, not that they are having any problems.

    One person has a smart playlist that doesn't work with a specific bitrate selected. That is easily solved by setting it to *bitrate is greater than* instead of *bitrate equals*.

    Again, what problems (apart from looks) are there? Does it sound worse, is the file size diffferent, do the files not work or fail to load onto the iPod, what?
  • acurtis Level 1 (0 points)
    Riddle me this...

    I've recently imported a song that's just over 15 minutes, and the Bit Rate is showing up as 18 kbps! My setting is for 256. I also have another song that's 14:55 and showing up at 106 kbps, again my setting when ripping is for 256 kbps.

    Any thoughts on that?

    AA.
