[Solved] cifs/smbfs: Failed to create sticker table: database is locked

Hello All, I was writing a message asking for help but I already found my answer so it seems. Hence, I'll write down a knowledge article. Perhaps it helps someone else (or future me). ------------- Question: I've upgraded my system to Debian Jessie running kernel 4.1.6 and have problems storing the ...

Re: httpd output plugin (wave) duration of 25:21

... and now what was your problem you need help with? Using the httpd output plugin and encoding in wave, the length of the stream is 15:32 minutes:seconds according to Foobar and Chrome browser. After those 15:32 minutes/seconds the stream will stop. When I use the Flac encoder instead of Wave, a ...

Re: httpd output plugin (wave) duration of 25:21

I'm afraid that's all there is in the log file and I'm running with verbose logging (option -v, and changing log_level to verbose did not seem to have a different effect). If you're reffering to missing client connections etc, there are none. The state file makes MPD start where it left before resta...

Re: httpd output plugin (wave) duration of 25:21

Seems fair. I've compiled MPD 0.20.2 on an AMD64 system running Debian Jessie, kernel 4.5.2. Running MPD with -v verbose option and httpd encoding in wave. Length of the audiostream is now 15:32 according too Foobar. When I use Flac encoder instead of Wave, a length is not specified. The input sourc...

httpd output plugin (wave) duration of 25:21

Hello, I'm trying to make MPD 0.19.16 stream wave from an Alsa input device with the httpd plugin. This works pretty well. However, the stream is limited to 25:21 minutes:seconds after which you'll have to restart the stream. When I use Flac as a decoder there is no limit. Unfortunately, the device ...

Yes, it is in scripts/triggers folder. The readme file gives a bit more information.

Kind regards, Maarten

Re: Control volume with custom scripts

Wow, I tried it with default setting and it works like a charm. Very good to hear!! As I mentioned somewhere above after installation on my ubuntu 16.04 system I had to manually create /var/run/synchronator folder - otherwise synchronator throws file not found error. Would be nice if it created the...

Re: Control volume with custom scripts

Btw similar approach can be adopted to create expect shell script that reacts on mixer events - volume up/down. Thanks for the link, never heard of the utility Expect. That seems like a very handy and easy to use tool. However, for proper volume level synchronization I suspect the setup can get qui...

Re: Control volume with custom scripts

I've implemented the suggested approach. As far as I can tell from what I see flowing out of my serial port it should work fine. I'd say, give it a try. For the configuration options read the section "additional non-descrete specific options" in the volume section of the configuration manual. You mi...

Re: Control volume with custom scripts

Hi Maarten, As for suggestions I think it would have been helpful if synchronator did log actual commands it sends - that way I'd have understood why it did not work from the very beginning :D Thanks for the suggestion, you're quite right. However, special characters such as new line/carriage retur...

Re: Control volume with custom scripts

Hello Nick, While I did test Synchronator with your amp, at some point I thought it was a good idea to set the event_delimiter to "=" in the NAD C375 config file apparently. This breaks the volume command formation, resulting in e.g. Main.Volume=+ . Conclusion, I've added the C375 config file quite ...

Re: Control volume with custom scripts

You can use the "null" mixer and a client listening for mixer events. Actually, I wrote an application that does exactly that (well almost): Synchronator. In short: by activating the Alsa dummy soundcard you can enable MPD volume control without actually touching the actual audiosignal. Synchronato...
