wvunpack — decodes wavpack encoded files

Synopsis

wvunpack [-options] INFILE... [-o OUTFILE]

Description

wvunpack decodes WavPack files back to their uncompressed wav or raw form using the options provided. Unless overridden with the -o switch, the resulting filename will be source-name.wav (or source-name.raw when -r used). Multiple WavPack input files may be specified resulting in multiple output files, and in that case -o may be used to specify an alternate target directory. Stdin and stdout may be specified with “-”. WavPack files are generally created with the wavpack program.

Options

-b
blindly decode all stream blocks and ignore length info
-c
do not decode audio but instead just extract cuesheet stored in APEv2 tag to stdout (equivalent to -x “cuesheet”)
-cc
extract cuesheet stored in APEv2 tag to source-name.cue file in same directory as decoded audio file (equivalent to -xx “cuesheet=%a.cue”)
-d
delete source file if successful (use with caution!)
-f
do not decode audio but simply display summary information about WavPack file to stdout in a machine-parsable format (see doc/wavpack_doc.html or cli/wvunpack.c in repository for format details)
--help
display extended help
-i
ignore .wvc file (forces hybrid lossy decompression)
-m
calculate and display MD5 signature; verify if lossless
-n
no audio decoding (use with -xx to extract tags only)
--no-utf8-convert
leave extracted text tags in UTF-8 encoding during extraction or display
-o OUTFILE
specify output filename (only if single source file) or target directory (must exist)
-q
quiet (keep console output to a minimum)
-r
force raw audio decode by skipping RIFF headers & trailers, results in source-name.raw
-s
do not decode audio but simply display summary information about WavPack file to stdout
-ss
do not decode audio but simply display summary and tag information about WavPack file to stdout
--skip=[sample|hh:mm:ss.ss]
start decoding at specified sample or time index
-t
copy input file's time stamp to output file(s)
--until=[+|-][sample|hh:mm:ss.ss]
stop decoding at specified sample or time index, specifying a + causes sample/time to be relative to --skip point, specifying a - causes sample/time to be relative to EOF
-v
verify source data only (no output file created)
--version
write program version to stdout
-w
regenerate fresh wav header (ingore RIFF data stored in WavPack file)
-xField
do not decode audio but instead just extract the specified tag field to stdout
-xxField[=file]”
extract the specified tag field to named file in same directory as decoded audio file; optional filename specification may contain %a which is replaced with the audio file base name, %t replaced with the tag field name (note: comes from data for binary tags) and %e replaced with the extension from the binary tag source file (or “txt” for text tag).
-y
yes to overwrite warning (use with caution!)
-z[n]
don't set (n = 0 or omitted) or set (n = 1) console title to indicate progress (leaves "WvUnpack Completed")
