Does this mean that 0.6 would work for 44.1 material without the resampling
As my server can't hack the resampling and I want to keep to 44.1 PCM
streaming to my squeezebox (see discussions on digital output),
this could help me.
Erm. I've never considered that, triode. RA streams tend to be horribly low
bitrate, so I've never considered anybody audiophile being interested in it
at all ;)
Give me 5 minutes - I'll try to produce a new version of the transcoder that
won't try the last step....
Right. Give the attached a go.
Use it to replace the standard 'transcoder_proxy.pl' that you should have in
/usr/local/slimserver. Make sure you're not running an old version first.
There are two important variables in the start of the proxy: '$use_lame',
Basically... If '$use_lame' is set, it will transcode to mp3 before handing
it off. If it's not, then it will supply a raw PCM stream. Bear in mind that
we only use lame because raw PCMs don't always work as we'd like ;)
If '$use_alienstream' is set, it will use alienstream to grab the stream. If
it's not, then it will use mplayer. mplayer is our preferred way forward, as
it is (a) easier to install than alienstream, and (b) allows for a small
cache size, which keeps our startup time down. However... we've not written
the docs for it yet ;)
Give it a go. Let me know how you get on.
