I am trying to set up mt-daapd version 3.0_pre1372 in Gentoo and I am having some trouble getting the transcodeing to work. From what I have seen in the fourm so far my config file just needs these two lines.

ssc_codectypes = ogg,flac,alac
ssc_prog = /usr/bin/

And then if I do a mt-daapd -f -d5 I should see a new thread being started fotr the transcode process. Instead all I am getting in Itunes is a quick scratch. Any ideas as to what I am missing?

Thanks in advance….

Try a -d9, and set a logfile in the config. Then you’ll better see what’s going on, including what the command line is that it’s executing.

You’ll want to make sure you have oggdec installed as well.
