Now back to my transcoding problem with my SoundBridge for which I needed the ffmpeg plugin: doesn’t seem to be able to transcode shorten files, the SoundBridge keeps telling me that the format is unsupported… On the commandline of the computer, on which mt-daapd runs, the transcoding and playback works fine however…

ffmpeg is the ick.

Easier to just transcode with a script. This post describes (at the end) how to transcode mpc — same thing only use the command to dump shn files to wav and use that for the transcode command.

Won’t pick up any metadata, but if you can point me towards anything describing shn metadata, I can look at it.
