    Running in OpenSuSE 11.0 x86_64
    mt-daapd- installed from source

    I have a collecion of FLAC files derved by firefly; I can see the files but the metadata is missing. No Artist, genre, etc. It is in the files (used metaflac). Makes the system next to useless!

    Any suggestions?

    I cannot get meta data to work with flac files either. Help would be greatly appreciated.

    All my flac files play fine when streamed from Firefly but none of the track info is there – Rhythm box has no idea how long they are for example.

    I am using mt-daapd version and ffmpeg version 0.5-r1 on the music server (which is a Gentoo box).

    As some of my flac files have album art etc. so I created a test file ripped from an audio CD with these commands:

    -flac -> –best -e -V –no-padding (flac 1.2.1)

    It’s ‘file’ info is as follows:

    FLAC audio bitstream data, 16 bit, stereo, 44.1 kHz, 10609284 samples

    and ‘metaflac’ gives me this:

    What am I missing?




    I “solved” this problem by using an SVN version (mt-daapd-svn-1586)
    Seems OK
    The stable version does not work in this respect
