…The cheap answer, if you wanted to *just* do mp3, and didn’t want to be able to choose which, would be to change the transcode script mt-daapd-ssc.sh so that it converted to .mp3 by using lame or something after converting to wav, then changing line 507 of plugin.c to emit a header type of “audio/mp3” rather than “audio/wav”….
Is this still a legit way of getting firefly to stream transcoded mp3? I grabbed the source and can’t locate the file plugin.c nor can I find ‘audio/wav’ in anywhere is the source code. Am I not looking in the right place?
