    It's only the display which is wrong. And I haven't figured out why yet.
    The stream would be flac anyway. If you brought up the track information
    it would show flac (and I verified the actual stream, too). Cosmetics.
    We'll get there :-).

    That said this all is a bit hit and miss, because there's no
    documentation available, despite the link Rudi posted. They don't
    explain how to get the FLAC stream, or when FLAC would be available.
    It's all a bit of guess work right now. Eg. there's a "filesize" element
    - and sometimes "filesize_flac". But no word whether this would only be
    there if you had a HiFi subscription. But I'm using it to decide to
    offer FLAC or not. We'll see whether this is a valid assumption or not.
    You're my guinea pigs.

    Yes, you're right. Once I check the track info, it says FLAC.

    And I've update LMS 8.1 to show the correct info from the beginning.
    Hopefully. Please give it a try.

    Yes, I don't see the MP3 label for the first track anymore. After updating it was still there, but then I did a library rescan and restarted the PC, which fixed it, I think.

    Hi,
    Thanks for the LMS update ! I would love to try it but I'm using Daphile. Is there a way to update the LMS version manually in daphile ?
    Best,

    Ping the daphile maintainer. He's usually pretty quick to respond.

    Heh... that's interesting. I'd trust what LMS says. But then the players
    should show the same! You could enable logging for
    player.streaming.direct, which would output the headers as received from
    the Deezer server. What are you using on the pCP to display the information?

    Sorry but I don't know how to enable logging...

    I have build players based on pCP with display and jivelite: on the playing screen I can touch the upper part to see an additional menu where I can see info on playing track. These are the same info you can read clicking on song title in LMS web ui. Infact it shows mp3 stream also there.

    By the way, thank you very much for your work

    Ok, I've enabled the log on LMS.
    It seems to stream flacs:

    In the PCP interface you can go to Beta functions > Extras and check a bunch of stats. Like this:
