BeSweet Commandline Reference

The BeSweet Reference contains an overview of the audio transcoder BeSweet’s commandline parameters and their interaction.

At the moment included are all (I hope) options for BeSweet itself and its directly supported encoders; as well as most extensions from bsn.dll.

  • Updated installation section.
  • Updated Vorbis encoding section. Since Vorbis now has proper multichannel coupling 6 channel Vorbis is no longer discouraged.
  • I’m slowly moving away from BeSweet and might never update the reference again. Therefore it’s time to put it into the public domain.
Minor fixes.
Smaller corrections and relaxed licence to CC-by-sa.
Complete revision. Added: Nero CLI, Aften, Flake, Winamp.
