    acess flacstream via adress:portnr/?

    Hi,

    is it possible to acess the native flac stream via a similar adress? I know it is possible for mp3 streams via server : portnr/stream.mp3, but this stream is empty when playing different file types like flac without recoding. I dont want to use recoding, since it is a loss in quality.

    Thanks for your answers.

    Best regards

    No, there's only the Mp3 stream.

    Not through a URL.

    What are you trying to do?

    A friend of mine is trying to write a softwareplayer for the Dreambox satelite receiver. At the Moment he uses the mp3 stream via url. I am trying to find a way to make him play flac and other formats too. The dreambox is a Linux/Enigma2 device and it can play most file formats out of the box via gstreamer. I am trying to find a way to acess this native streams from the SB Server.

    Best regards
