View Full Version : LAME / FLAC - mp3 on Fiesty...

2007-07-22, 04:41
hi all,

I'm trying to get my FLAC files to play through SS, but get the following error when I tick the Flac - mp3 box under server settings / file types:

Required binary was not found: [flac] -dcs --skip=$START$ --until=$END$ -- $FILE$ | [lame] --resample 44100 --silent -q $QUALITY$ --abr $BITRATE$ - -

Amarok plays the Flac files absolutely fine, so I'm at a bit of a loss...

If anyone can give any advice, I would be very grateful!

Check if lame is on the "path"

Open a shell prompt. Type in
lame -h

If you get a lot of help message then your problem is NOT with lame. If you do not get the help message, then re-install lame. Save the output from the install so that if it still does not work, post the output for other to make suggestions.

Cheers BPA,

That has solved it!! I assumed I had LAME installed as Flac playback was all good through Amarok, but I was clearly wrong. Added LAME, back on form ;-)
