    Hi,

    Just tried 1659, but its constantly rebubuffering when playing FLAC files on my M1001. Same as :http://forums.fireflymediaserver.org/viewtopic.php?t=6503&highlight=rebuffering

    Installed on WindowsXP. Log files tells me that the connection was lost to my Soundbridge.

    So I went back to 1586. 8)
    The only problem I have now is this one:

    I don’t remember that I had this before, so it looks like someting is changed since reinstalling.

    Can I get -d9 logfiles on a scan for the filename thing? [email protected].

    Thanks.

    Ron,

    This is in the file:

    It only seems to happen on FLAC files.

    Thanks. I thought I had fixed libflac, but I guess not. :/

    Ron, in addition to the already reported periodic rebuffering of FLAC files, which I’m also experiencing, files that I encoded with the newer versions of flac.exe (1.20+, I think; I’m currently using 1.21) won’t play at all on Soundbridge. They do play correctly on, say, foobar2k. The Soundbridge reports “can’t play {name of file.} Older FLAC files seem to play, however. WinXP SP2, P3 1GB ram. Soundbridge M1000.

    Right, that’s a “ffmpeg too old” error. I just can’t seem to get a stable version of ffmpeg, though. Wish they would release a stable. (guess *everyone* is lazy about that. heh.)

    In any event, that’s on my “fix before 1.2 release” list.

    Still the rebuffering problems in svn1671.

    Ron, I went back to 1571 (Windows XP). The rebuffering seems to be gone, but the FLAC–>WAV transcode to a Soundbridge for newer FLAC files (1.2.0 and 1.2.1 – I tried both) is not working, suggesting as you said that the problem is with the ffmpeg software.

    Poking around on the Web, I saw that Josh Coulson recently submitted a patch to update ffmpeg for some FLAC changes. In playing around with different “solutions” I learned (having tried) that we users can’t just overwrite your versions of the ffmpeg-related dlls with the newer ones and have a go. (All transcoding stops.)

    I also experimented with overwriting your libFLAC with the newest one. In this case, Firefly still transcodes the older FLAC formats, but not the newer.

    The libflac is really just for tag reading. The libflac that ships is the flac-1.1.4 (https://svn.fireflymediaserver.org/svn/firefly-build/trunk/win32/source/flac-1.1.4/), which is think is the latest. Or was the latest recently.

    The ffmpeg I have is an old snapshot from like 3/06. I’ll have a go at it again before next stable.

    First I have to get sqlite3 working again.

    Freshest libflac.dll is 1.2.1. Binary (in ‘flac-1.2.1-devel-win.zip’) and source are at the usual FLAC sourceforge page.

    The latest compiled versions of the ffmpeg files I could find were dated Sept 11, but it seems unlikely these contain the latest FLAC patches.

    RE: “First I have to get sqlite3 working again”: Would contributing a bag of French Roast be helpful? : – )

    This might be helpful (link below). Of course, it’s unclear whether inclusion of this patch will solve the 1.2.1 transcoding problem, but the detectives have a suspect.

    Oh, nice. I’ll try to roll those in.

    This one also?

    http://roundup.mplayerhq.hu/roundup/ffmpeg/issue187

    Solves a metadata problem.

    I’ve was unable to download the first Coulson patch (not that I would know what to do with it) at ffmeg.org; Python error messages fill the screen instead of a file download. Seems to be common problem there judging from some other messages. Hopefully you’ll have more success.
