    Hmmm, telneted into the NLSU2 when I do flac -v from the opt/bin directory it shows

    flac: No such file or directory

    Which seems to be the result for all other files in that folder, apart from bash.

    Oh wait

    /opt/sbin/mt-daapd-ssc.sh “/disk1/UserAccess/FLACs/BT – Ima/(02) BT – Quark.flac” > “/disk1/UserAccess/FLACs/test.wav”

    does work, well sort of. I get a wav file out, but get wavstreamer: read failed error.
    Looking at the wav properties in Ubuntu it’s shown as a audio/x-wav

    Daft question I know, but is /opt/bin in your PATH for that shell ?

    $PATH
    /sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin: No such file or directory

    Oh and the wav plays directly fine in Windows/Ubuntu

    Looks like you need to specify the length when testing e.g.

    /opt/sbin/mt-daapd-ssc.sh “/share/hdd/data/public/mp3/test/New Order – (The Best Of)/(01) New Order – True Faith ’94.flac” 0 3 >test.wav

    This created a wav file.
    If I leave out the final param I get the read error.

    Also the script calls grep. Is that in your path ?

    Yep specifying the params makes it work fine. And grep is in my path.
    Is it because it’s an x-wav that it’s causing a problem?
    I read somewhere on the net that that type needed to be changed to just a plain wav.

    It’s being sent as audio/wav, that’s what the headers were saying.

    What are you using as a player?

    Rhythmbox may or may not work with transcoded audio. At least some versions of Rhythmbox have problems streaming wav audio.

    The roku, though, shouldn’t have a problem.

    You get nothing, though?

    Ah OK.
    Yeah the Roku says it can’t play the song, then skips to the next one, and can’t play that etc. throughout the playlist.
    The thing is it used to work fine with OGGs, and I’m not sure what changed that means it doesn’t work now.

    Is there any Linux player that will work with Firefly transcoding?

    I’ve just reinstalled it and it definitely installed the svn 1696-1.
    Still the same issues with RhythmBox and on the Roku.
    I’ve just tried it on OurTunes (Java in Windows) and iTunes 7.5 and I get the same problem.

    Is it worth going back to the stable release and adding in FLAC and OGG transcoding to that?
    Or is that difficult to do?

    Not stable, that won’t transocode. But 1586 is much more stable that current nightlies.

    Well I finally got around to trying 1586 and that still doesn’t work for me 🙁
    Oh well, thanks for your help.

    I am having exactly the same issue. Have tried with both 1586 and 1696 firefly versions and no apparent issues with producing wav from flac or ogg – just can’t get it to play on the Roku M1001 (also tried playing in iTunes)
