Foobar2000:Components/Monkey's Audio Decoder (foo input monkey)

From Hydrogenaudio Knowledgebase
Jump to: navigation, search


This input plug-in gives foobar2000 the ability to decode (read and play) Monkey's Audio files (.APE) as well as APE Link files (.APL).


foobar2000 will report an MD5 checksum embedded in the .APE file as an "Audio MD5" value in the file properties, same as is done for FLAC files. However, the Monkey's Audio codec actually calculates the checksum based on the audio data plus certain other parts of the file, so it's not strictly an audio MD5, nor can it be compared to the Audio MD5 value reported for FLAC files with identical audio data.
