View Full Version : Windows: MP3 sound fine but FLAC and WAVs are silent

Thanks again KDF.
With Flac.exe in my path Flacs are playing just fine. Thanks Kevin.
However Wavs are still a problem although I have discovered much more now.

Wavs play fine on my local Winamap player every time but I have problems on
the Squeezebox.
Wavs will now play on the Squeezebox but they generally sound overlaid with
static (or a sort of grainy, gross white noise). However, sometimes they
sound fine. Which wav sounds bad when does not seem to follow any pattern.
The first wav may sound good and the next bad. The first may sound bad, then
I play an MP3, go back to the same wav and it sounds good.

The log file has got huge and I can't see which bit may be relevant (it all
looks OK to me), but I've copied some below.
Thanks for any help.

For the log file....
I played two wavs (two different versions of "Solar Fields - Reflective
Frequencies") which sounded full of static, then an MP3 ("ModelCitizen -
Experiments", which of course sounded fine) then switched back to play the
same two wavs again... which both sounded fine this time around!

I aplogise for the very large log file. Please cut it out of any replies.

What is the output from the server when you check d_source, or run slim.exe
--d_source (slimserver.pl --d_source)?

Wav's should play natively to squeezebox.

For FLAC, make sure you have Flac.exe and LAME.exe installed where
slimserver
can find them (c:\windows, c:\winnt, c:\windows\systems32,
c:\winnt\system32, or
in the same directory as slimserver.pl or slimsvc.exe

1) FFWD/REW do not stop when teh button is released. You have to press play
or
pause to stop scanning.

2) scanning/rewinding skips when returning to playback. its a known bug:

The log isn't showing anything obvious. In fact, the log seems to look fine.
Static over sound can be caused by a mixed up little endian / big endian.
However, both mp3 and wav play through squeezebox without any processing. I
don't know offhand why it would end up with problems. Flac's convert to WAV to
play out to squeezebox, so I would think its not the squeezebox. Is it always
specific wav's that give you noise? What happens if you convert a noisy wav to
FLAC and play it?
