No

acidrip has a bad habit of underestimating the
bitrate.. so I usually try to raise it by at least 100
.. but now it wont let me anymore.. I set it in
there... but when I click START, it re-calculates and
uses the value it wanted to anyways...

it get REALLY bad when you are trying to encode
something SHORT because the bitrate gets set to
something like 16000 when it needs to be something like
1100 :)

    hmm, yes i see. this comes from having to calculate a
    different bitrate for each file when using multiple files.
    I'll suss something out. Do you think it should be possible
    to set a fixed bitrate for each file? not sure how to set
    that out really... obviously it shouldn't happen for single
    files though like it used to... i'll get that fixed at least

    ok, well in AcidRip/acidrip.pm, sub get_menc:

    set_bitrate();
    to
    set_bitrate() if $::settings->{'this_block'} > 0;

    that'll do the easy bit!

    dammit guess i'll need a bugfix version.

    I bet using a fixed bitrate would work... because you want
    to take as much will fit on one CD as possible for 1of2 ..
    then the left overs for 2of2 .. but just because its
    smaller.. doesnt mean you necessarily want to have it
    encoded at 4000 :)

    maybe just put a "CALCULATE" button next to bitrate, and
    people can press that if they want to re-calc??

    there already is. well if you click the "bitrate" label
    itself then the bitrate will not be allowed to change. The
    point here is that it's meant to be fully automatic by
    default, and a user should be able to change settingsa like
    that if they want, not the other way round.
