wvunpack(1)               WavPack Executable Programs              wvunpack(1)




NAME

       wvunpack - decodes wavpack encoded files


SYNOPSIS

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


DESCRIPTION

       wvunpack decodes WavPack files back to their original uncompressed form
       using the options provided. Unless overridden with the -o switch, the
       output filename will be identical to the source filename but with the
       original file extension replacing WavPack's ".wv" extension. It is also
       possible to output raw audio without headers (see --raw option).
       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 "-". It is
       also possible to export to one of the alternate file formats listed
       below, but in that case the information in the original headers and
       trailers will be lost (even if the alternate format is the same as the
       source format). WavPack files are generally created with the wavpack
       program.

   OUTPUT FILE FORMATS
       o   Microsoft RIFF, extension ".wav", force with -w or --wav, creates
           RF64 if > 4 GB

       o   Sony Wave64, extension ".w64", force with --w64

       o   Apple Core Audio, extension ".caf", force with --caf-be or --caf-le

       o   Raw PCM or DSD, extension ".raw", force with -r or --raw

       o   Philips DSDIFF, extension ".dff", force with --dsdiff or --dff

       o   Sony DSD Stream, extension ".dsf", force with --dsf


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")

       --caf-be, --caf-le
           force output to big-endian or little-endian Core Audio, extension
           ".caf"

       -d
           delete source file if successful (use with caution!)

       --dff, --dsdiff
           force output to Philips DSDIFF, DSD audio source only, extension
           ".dff"

       --dsf
           force output to Sony DSF, DSD audio source only, extension ".dsf"

       -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, --raw
           force raw PCM or DSD audio decode by skipping 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, specifying a -
           causes sample/time to be relative to EOF

       -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, --wav
           force output to Microsoft RIFF/RF64, extension ".wav"

       --w64
           force output to Sony Wave64, extension ".w64"

       -x "Field"
           do not decode audio but instead just extract the specified tag
           field to stdout

       -xx "Field[=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")
