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
[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 *
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.
