I have been able to get WMA playback on Linux (Fedora core 2) working
with ffmpeg
However, I can't get SBG to work with direct wav, only with mp3 via
lame.
Squeezesoft does manage to handle the direct wav.
Had to comment out the first two lines to get SBG to work. Any ideas?
My convert.conf
#wma mp3 squeezebox *
# [ffmpeg] -v 0 -i $FILE$ -f wav -
wma mp3 * *
[ffmpeg] -v 0 -i $FILE$ -f wav - | [lame] -x -m s -r -S -q 5 -s 44.1 - -
