I’m having a similar problem. I’m running mt-daap-svn-1686 on fedora9-x86_64. For the client machines I’m using Itunes on windows xp pro, and rhythmbox on Ubuntu 8.04 and Gentoo 2008.0.
If I start mt-daapd using the init script (service mt-daapd start) mp3s work fine but flacs will not play. From reading the logs it appears that the transcode works but the wav never gets sent across the network (only 1 packet gets sent). The client machines show the correct info for the wav files (file type, length, name, and tag info), but nothing plays. I’ve tried setting runas to nobody, root, and several other users but all give the same results.
If I start mt-daapd from the command line (/usr/local/bin/mt-daapd) in a root shell everything works.
