Re: additional tags support (replay gain)

As I said, access to the master volume (of the external amplifier) is necessary but not available to MPD. In my setup (USB-DAC), MPD is only able to control the pre amplification level. This is the wrong point for applying replay gain in the signal flow. I would agree with your argumentation, if MPD...

Re: additional tags support (replay gain)

I'm actually not sure if MPD is able to fix it. Another discussion to this issue: https://github.com/MusicPlayerDaemon/MPD/issues/219 proposes to to leave everything as it is and implement an API. This sounds like there is no (good) general solution. Furthermore, I'm uncertain if the master volume (...

Re: additional tags support (replay gain)

I have experimented with applying replay gain by MPD. At the moment I'm not quite satisfied with the result. I'm using an USB DAC with the following configuration: replaygain "track" replaygain_missing_preamp "-15" zeroconf_enabled "yes" zeroconf_name "MPD Wohnzimmer" audio_output { type "alsa" name...

additional tags support (replay gain)

Hi,

I'd like to propose a protocol enhancement for supporting ReplainGain Tags:

- replaygain_album_gain
- replaygain_album_peak
- replaygain_track_gain
- replaygain_track_peak

The "currentsong" command should then also be able to dump those tags.

Best regards

SF

Re: MPD hangs when USB device power off, restart needed

ok, got it :) Bug is reported here: https://github.com/MusicPlayerDaemon/MPD/issues/423.

Anyhow this is a temporary (maybe for someone interesting) workaround, until the bug is fixed.

Re: MPD hangs when USB device power off, restart needed

ok. thank you. As a workaround writing an udev rule worked for me:

create a new udev rule:
vi /etc/udev/rules.d/70-alsa-permanent.rules
add

Code: Select all

SUBSYSTEM!="sound", GOTO="my_usb_audio_end"
ACTION!="change", GOTO="my_usb_audio_end"

RUN+="/usr/bin/systemctl restart mpd"

LABEL="my_usb_audio_end"

MPD hangs when USB device power off, restart needed

Hi there, I've discovered one annoying problem after upgrading to MPD 0.21.1 (using 0.20 before). I an using mpd on an arch linux distribution. I use an Amplifier as external DAC (card 1). # aplay -l **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices **** card 0: SPDIF [Integrated SPDIF], device 0: S/PDIF PCM s...
