    I said I would be back 😛

    I have configured Firefly to see FLAC music files and Soundbridge sees them too. The problem is that Soundbridge says “This format is not supported” when I try to play them.

    I use dBPoweramp CD Ripper to produce the FLAC files, so what am I doing wrong?

    The slug has to transcode the flac files before streaming them to the soundbridge.

    Soundbridge M1001/Firefly 0.2.4.2

    I am not sure a version this old supports Flac…

    I’d go to a nightly like 1586 which can be found here
    http://nightlies.fireflymediaserver.org/version.php?version=svn-1586

    download it to your admin part of the slug, telnet in, cd to the dir you downloaded it to and then type

    ipkg install mt-daapd_svn-1586-1_armeb.ipk.

    Firstly, OK so the slug has to transcode the files first. how does it/I do that?

    Secondly, according to ipkg update this is the latest stable version of Firefly.

    The “stable” version is no good. It’s ancient. Go with svn-1586.

    You can also use wget to download it directly on the slug and then install it right away. You can grab these binaries from the nightlies page.

    It was good in it’s time 😆 It was the last stable mt-daapd.

    You will enjoy the advances that the FF nightlies bring in speed and flexibility.

    Yeah yeah 😉
    You know what I mean. It’s no good for transcoding. I have used it long enough to remember that it actually was “good” 🙂
