I like to use Firefly to listen to my home audio library while I’m at work. This works great for MP3, AAC, and OGG, but many of my files are stored as flac and this uses too much bandwidth. Having ssc transcode to one or any of the above formats would be quite beneficial.
I’ve tried hacking this in to both script- and plugin-based SSC but it seems like too much of the code is built around providing WAV data to make quick work of it.
True. I had at some point toyed with the idea of doing anything to anything, but it seems like mp3 is the lowest common denominator, so I think I will end up with a mp3 transcode target at some point.
