Yes, but I don’t know if the soundbridge will do multichannel wav files, or how one would convert it to a multichannel wav file.

But generally, add ac3 to the transcode codecs, and edit your transcode script to convert the .ac3 file to a wav file.

Thanks Ron

Testing with mt-daapd/svn-1417 now

I added .shn and .ac3 :

extensions = .mp3,.m4a,.m4p,.flac,.ogg,.shn,.aac,.ac3
and
ssc_codectypes = ogg,flac,alac,shn,ac3

but this does not seem to work for .ac3 and .shn; it does work for .flac.

When a .ac3 file is added to the db i see the following in the log:
