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 (mt-daapd-ssc.sh) 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.
