View Full Version : Thai Language for Squeezebox 3

Hi,

How do I get the Squeezebox 3 to display thai language? I read through the posts and have moved the Thai fonts into the Font's folder in the Squeezebox directory. Anything else I need to do?

I am getting romanized gibberish now when I play a thai song through the squeesbox. Well, I suspect it could be the tagging of the song when I used EAC to convert the files to FLAC - it was romanised gibberish in the tags - I was hoping that the Thai font will automatically pick that up and 'translate' it to thai. Am I making sense here? What do I need to do to tag the songs in Thai?

Alvin - what OS are you running on, and what version of SlimServer?

Could you send me a copy of that file to dan | at | slimdevices.com

Or if it's too big - upload to ftp://electricrain.com/incoming/

Thanks.

Internet Explorer should be able to drag and drop a file into the 'incoming' folder.

Alvin - it doesn't look like the TITLE was encoded with UTF-8. It looks to be
iso-8859-11. The Vorbis tagging format which FLAC uses, mandates that all
tags be UTF-8 encoded. What tag editor are you using?

Frankly Dan, I have no idea. I am using EAC for my conversions to Flac. I downloaded the latest version, and point it to the flac.exe file for external conversion. I added the following for the additional command line optin in EAC "-T "artist=%a" -T "title=%t" -T "album=%g" -T "date=%y" -T "tracknumber=%n" -T "genre=%m" %s"

How do I check or set my title to encode to UTF-8 format in EAC?

Thanks!

Alvin

Alvin - can you download 'Tag & Rename', and see what it shows?

Also - what is the setting in your Windows Control Panel -> Regional and
Language Options -> Advanced -> Language for Non-Unicode characters show?

Thanks.

I had to rip my wifes Thai cd's using apple lossless, then converted to flac etc.. I had to do this because the database EAC uses for disc/track names never had any Thai titles stored, I believe Apple uses the other licendes database.
