    Hi,

    I’m running svn-1050 on linux. Transcoding of WMA and OGG files is mostly working for me, but after a couple of days uptime, mt-daapd still serves mp3 files but transcoding stops functioning.

    My transcoding script is basically the default one; OGGs go via oggdecode and wavstreamer, WMAs go via mplayer and wavstreamer. When I manually run the transcoding script, wavstreamer dies with a “Read failed.” error. I haven’t run out of space in /tmp, and the permissions there haven’t changed.

    Any suggestions for how to debug this?

    Thanks,
    Dylan

    When I try to cycle mt-daapd, it doesn’t kill a (stalled) transcoding script. Even if I kill the script manually, mt-daapd complains that port 3689 is already in use and then aborts.

    Sounds like a fd leak to me. I don’t do if often, but I periodically do a long-running valgrind session under load and see what pops out. If I don’t see a fd leak, then it might be only on an error path or something, and I’ll comb through the transcode stuff to find it.
