Hi all,
AFAIK Firefly can’t currently transcode to anything but wav, which causes me a bit of a problem. Is this something you would consider changing? I’m willing to hack some code if you’ll point me in the right direction.


Yeah, but hte right way is hard.

The easy, sloppy way is to hack up ssc-script. In plugins.c, it sets the header type to “audio/wav”, change that to “audio/mp3”, and fix the script ( to emit mp3 rather than wav.

That kinda sucks, but that would work. Won’t work for ssc-wma, or ssc-ffmpeg, but it will get you in the right direction. Errr… so long as you are using unix, not windows, I should say.
