Hi,

I am using LMS 7.7.2 on Ubuntu 11.10 details below.

Logitech Media Server Version: 7.7.2 - r33893 @ Wed Mar 14 05:46:46 PDT 2012
Hostname: DasServer
Server IP Address: 192.168.0.2
Server HTTP Port Number: 9000
Operating system: Debian - EN - utf8
Platform Architecture: x86_64-linux
Perl Version: 5.12.4 - x86_64-linux-gnu-thread-multi
Database Version: DBD::SQLite 1.34_01 (sqlite 3.7.7.1)
Total Players Recognized: 3

The problem I have is that when I add flac files to the library I can't "see" them, either via a browser on 9000 or on any of my players.

The files in question play fine with vlc.

I have many ogg and mp3 files in the library which work fine.

What should I do to be able to play flac files?

Thanks in advance,

Ian

File and folder permissions for the flac files ? The Squeezeboxserver user must be able to read them .
And did you rescan ?

Note if you used "music folder" can LMS browse the flac folders at all ? ( note " music folder " may not work with flac + cue ,then artist or album should work after a scan , but use single files IMO )

By the way, LMS works fine with FLAC + external cue files on both Windows 7 and Ubuntu 11.04.

Apart from the issue from 7.6.0 on, where, if there is a cue file associated with a music file, neither the music file nor the cue file will play if browsed in Folder view - other means of access (browse albums, artists, search, etc) work fine. (Unless this bug has been fixed.)

Yes it does ,but not always thru music folder instead of artist and album ,if they not fixed that bug ?

I have a very small sample of those and they work .

And normal flac works to , I don't think the file format is the problem for op.

The file permissions were wrong sorry.

I just assumed that it must be something to do with FLAC without even checking that.

Thanks for all the responses, very much appreciated.
