Reply To: No metadata in flac



I cannot get meta data to work with flac files either. Help would be greatly appreciated.

All my flac files play fine when streamed from Firefly but none of the track info is there – Rhythm box has no idea how long they are for example.

I am using mt-daapd version and ffmpeg version 0.5-r1 on the music server (which is a Gentoo box).

As some of my flac files have album art etc. so I created a test file ripped from an audio CD with these commands:

-flac -> –best -e -V –no-padding (flac 1.2.1)

It’s ‘file’ info is as follows:

FLAC audio bitstream data, 16 bit, stereo, 44.1 kHz, 10609284 samples

and ‘metaflac’ gives me this:
