    LMS Player Names in Settings/Advanced/File Types? Possible?

    Michael,

    Would it be possible for you to identify players in LMS 'Settings/Advanced/File Types' in order to easily see which setting applies to each player?

    Player name would be preferable, followed by MAC address and IP address if possible, by the side of each setting. The players are identified in Settings/Info so the information is already there somewhere. At times the different settings are 'played with', for example when trying out different settings in Brutefir or Inguz. I'm sure there are other instances when it would be useful as well.

    As an example...

    FLAC.......................AAIF.....Disabled
    ..............................FLAC.....Disabled
    ..............................FLAC.....flac/InguzDSP......Bedroom Radio............xx.xx.xx.xx.xx.xx.....ipaddress
    ..............................FLAC.....flac/InguzDSP......Living Room Touch.......xx.xx.xx.xx.xx.xx.....ipaddress

    And so on...

    Dots in example only used to keep formatting. There's probably another way to do that

    Is it something possible/easy to do?

    Thank you

    Bob

    As transcoding rules aren't per-player, this doesn't make sense. If a
    third party allows to do per-player settings, then it should be in that
    plugin's responsibility to display this.

    Thank you for the quick response. I kind of guessed that if it had been possible it would have already been done. I don't know much about the internal workings of LMS so thought it better to ask.

    You might wanna have a look at another plugin, called C-3PO. I played with it today and I think it has what you are looking for. You can control transcoding per each player.

    Thanks for the pointer Ge Ba,

    C-3PO does give me what I want. It makes my 'Settings/Advanced/File Types' a bit complicated because I have Inguz running and that needs to mesh in with 3-CPO. It does allow me to have more control on what transcoding does on my system and even solved the problem of getting no sound using Radio Paradise. I'm running Inguz RC now on all local music, Spotify (spotty - thanks JohnB), Radio Paradise and radio stations in general - with RC on some players, not on others, a real mix in fact. Taken a bit of messing around with 3-CPO and File Types but its all working as I want.
