    Win XPSP2 / FF1498/ Soundbridge400

    I recently added a ~50min “song” to the database. No problem as long as it is a WAV-file. But when it is encoded as FLAC the soundbridge doesn’t accept it … until I break it up in parts of less than about 20 mins (16 mins is ok, 23 mins is not – didn’t do any refined reseach until now). The flac-files themselves are ok (play perfectly with VLC-player).

    Is this a FF or a SB-issue?

    Could you repeat those length details in filesize?

    I’m just thinking… there were some reports where Firefly didn’t stream but tried to push the whole thing to the client immediately… and the Soundbridge has some kind of cache… 16 minutes of Flac could hit a border of 64 or 128 MB there (don’t know exactly what cache size the SB has, so I’m just guessing).

    Does it play against an iTunes client?

    No – Itunes not even installed on the PC

    Errr… can you? What I’m wondering is if it’s a server or client thing. If you could play the file from iTunes, (or any other program, I guess — GetItTogether, iTunes Redux, whatever) then it has to be a soundbridge thing. That’s the only thing I could think to try.

    I can’t imagine it’s a server issue. I do have problems with large files (>2Gb), but you haven’t hit that issue.
