Re: mono stream plays on left channel only

It also means that there is no support for mpd that is running on a stable version of one of the biggest distributions. And I'm not going to upgrade to an unstable or testing version, nor I want to run into a dependency hell to upgrade mpd.

I know it's outdated. I just was eager to know if there is a solution for this issue.

mono stream plays on left channel only [solved]

One of the mpd 0.19.21-1 (Debian Stretch) that I have is playing mono streams on only 1 channel (L). As other mpd instances running on Debian Stretch do not have this problem, I think it must be some ALSA config. There is no /etc/asound.conf and no ~/.asoundrc. I use an external Terratec USB sixfire...

Re: raw output instead of ISO-8859-1 or UTF-8

Yes, you're right, these stations are broken. I even agree 200%. But unfortunately, it's reality. That's why I would like to get the "now playing" info unconverted so that I will be able to convert it externally. I don't want an auto-convert module built into mpd, that would mess up mpd. Just an opt...

Re: raw output instead of ISO-8859-1 or UTF-8

You're absolutely right, but what if the input is uncertain? Try to load this m3u. The German stations have no problem (UTF-8) while the Finnish and Swiss stations will display question marks. I know it is not an mpd problem, nor an mpc problem, it's the same old ever lasting story of different stan...

Re: raw output instead of ISO-8859-1 or UTF-8

I reread the manpage and indeed you're right. Sorry for that. But would it be possible to set it to "raw"? Just because one stream uses ISO-8859-15, the other utf-8 and antother windows-1252.

raw output instead of ISO-8859-1 or UTF-8

Hello list, In mpd.conf there is a setting "id3v1_encoding" which specifies to which encoding the "now playing" info must be converted. The standard of the source string is ISO-8859-1 as stated in the mpd.conf manpage. But when using mpd for radio streams, the standard for encodings is that there ar...
