    LMS no longer converting 24-bit files to MP3

    I just started having a problem a few days ago... probably after trying to install a newer version os SOX... but LMS will no longer transcode any 24-bit FLAC files to MP3 to stream to my office SB3. I've never had this problem before and have tried every solution to solve it, without luck. At this point, I'm reverting to a TimeMachine backup from a week ago to see if that solve the issue.

    Anyone else have an option for me?


    Running latest nightly on Mac MINI 2.6GHz i7, 16GB RAM, OS 10.12.6

    Turn on logging player.source to DEBUG and thenafter trybg to play a file check server log file to see what is happening/ failing.

    Odd that it's happening on both SB3, Duet and Transporter if I force transcode, but if I force MP3 transcoding to my iPhone using iPeng to playback, it works fine. If I play a 16-bit file, everything is OK.

    Error is:

    Any ideas? FLAC is installed properly. Haven't had this problem before.

    You have only sent tiny fragement of conversion - chopping the importantt beginning lines and trailing lines. As a general rule for logs it is best to copy iunto a text file,zip and attach to a post. Also sometimes message that are missing are a clue to the error - by editing the log that context is lost.

    When a transcode fails it is usuall logged as something like "end of file" - as you have have not included the success and/or failure of trasncode - I don't know what is happening.

    That said

    I see two conversion.
    Code:
    17-08-06 17:10:38.7027] Slim::Player::TranscodingHelper::getConvertCommand 2 (446) Matched: flc->mp3 via: [flac] -dcs $START$ $END$ -- $FILE$ | [lame] --silent -q $QUALITY$ $RESAMPLE$ $BITRATE$ - -
    and
    Code:
    17-08-06 16:52:19.8802] Slim::Player::TranscodingHelper::getConvertCommand 2 (446) Matched: flc->mp3 via: [flac] -dcs $START$ $END$ -- $FILE$ | [lame] --silent -q $QUALITY$ $RESAMPLE$ $BITRATE$ - -
    What do you means "FLAC is installed properly" LMS supplies Flac as part of the paackage - any 3rd party install of Flac is unliely to work.

    The above two conversion both use Flac->lame. Your post does not make it clear which one works but IIRC lame cannot do resampling so at a guess the transcode process is not workign but without a complete log hard to tell.

    Can you run the flac, sox and lame that are in the LMS Bin directories (the directories with Bin in the Helper application folder as listed in WebUI Settings/Information) NOT in any other directory and what is the version of each.

    I have tried to do a resample on a LMS 7.9.1 and it didn't work - that may be a just a local issues since I never have need to resample but am checking.

    Example of a more complete log with the important transcoding log message highlighted - in your log I don;t see the other messages (e.g. "matched") in your log which measn you have copied the LMS tests against "failed" rules which precede a successful rule which then plays.

    Found my Flac resample problems. It is an example of transcode log where failure happens early and but "matched" messages appear later so it can confuse.

    I'll look again. I don't think the problem is resampling as I've always been able to play 48k files on other devices. Again the odd thing is that iPeng on my iPhone plays everything fine. I did also try a xilix update on the Transporter and nothing changed. This is extremely odd as it has worked.

    There's really no reason to do transcoding with the exception of streaming to an SB3 at my office. I have plenty of bandwidth on both ends to play native FLAC files and may just have to leave it there.


    Thanks for the replies. As I get more time this week/weekend I'll try it again and submit more content from the log. One other thing I just thought of, I did an OS update about a week ago to OS 10.12.6 which could've broken some pipes. Not sure how I could revert except to restore from an older backup set. May try that as well.


    Thanks again.

    sox is used for resampling ansd you said you installed a new version fo sox that is why I used the example. In your context it is not clear whether the transcoding chain runs ((i.e. a log with "Using command for conversion" and not followed by a log with "end of file or error on socket, song pos: 0").

    48kbitss/ec files can be sent to player without conversion as long as it is 16 bit, I think if the flac file is 24 bit then it may need some trasncoding.

    You need to look at your log in more detail not the fragment you sent.

    Here's a recent attempt converting 48k/24bit FLAC saved as zipped RTF.

    Thanks again for looking at it.
