View Full Version : Convert.conf transcoding by IP address

I was wondering if anyone would help me out. This is what I am trying to accomplish



I want to transcode to lame 32 kpbs when I connect with softsqueeze from a particular IP address. For some reason (perhaps me being a blockhead) I am not able to get slimserver to recognize the following convert.conf entry:



flc mp3 softsqueeze 192.168.1.2
[flac] -dcs $FILE$ | [lame] --resample 44100 --silent -q 9 -b 32 - -



Is this even possible? I thought at one time it was possible to specify by ip address.



I suppose if I could even do:



flc mp3 * 192.168.1.2
etc....
it would be fine. But I cannot seem to get either one of these to work. I believe that doing it by mac address it works, but these are a little too variable with softsqueeze and multiple windows profiles etc.



I would alter the setup.pm file to allow 32kbps but I run slimserver as a windows service but this does not appear to work in this configuration.



Might anyone have an idea...



If you do, I'll ship you that pony you wanted.
