    Stuttering sound on Tidal albums official plugin(hifi)

    Hi!

    Lately I discovered distorted and stuttering on some tracks on tidal. I have enabled debugging in the log:

    Here 11:31:58.6398 starting a track that is constantly stuttering and variable speed.

    Here starts a track that plays normally

    Here I start first track of Mark Knopflers new album "Trapper Man" . It is clicking in sound in the start....

    [19-04-16 11:41:10.2096] Slim::Plugin::WiMP::ProtocolHandler::new (57) Remote streaming TIDAL track: http://ab-pr-ak.audio.tidal.com/54f7...1ddfecc94b8c73

    The errors is constant using both Transporter and Duet.

    Playing the tracks with Tidal app and Chromecast(directly) there is no problems.

    >Michael Herger: Can you see something in the log... ?

    Do you have a Touch?

    I don't have issues with that track. But I do not get the same trackid as you listed.

    I do not have a Touch. 2 Transporters and 2 duets.

    It sounds like the same problem I once had with tracks received from hdtracks.com. They were compressed to maximum. I recompressed them a level 5, and the everything was ok.
    But that was 24/96 files and you can not do that with Tidal files, but maybe Tidal has increased compression level of their files ????

    None of the tracks I have problems with is Master quality. So that can not be the problem.

    I got rid of the problem by changing the following in convert.conf:
    ---------------------------
    flc flc * *
    -
    ---------------------------
    To:
    ---------------------------
    flc flc * *
    [sox] -t flac $FILE$ -t flac -
    ---------------------------

    I have not yet figured out why the squeeze devices can't handle the new TIDAL flacs.

    Cheers,
    Martin

    Store it in custom-convert.conf to make sure it's not overwritten with
    the next LMS update.

    There have been issues in the past if too high a compression level was
    applied to flac files. Maybe it's the same here?
