Re: SACD ISO playback in MPD

I managed to get it to build with the configure above. Unfortunately I am still getting this error ++ WARN: unexpected PVD type 0 Jan 13 23:50 : iso9660: Failed to open ISO9660 file /var/lib/mpd/music/USB/sacd/David/Scary.iso The fact that "iso9660" appears above, clearly shows you either did not u...

Should mpd be able to read the SACD ISO files or do I need to extract them first?
The whole point of this plugin is to enable MPD to read SACD and DVDA ISOs.

WHat exactly do you mean by "that did not work"?

Re: SACD ISO playback in MPD

Do you intend to integrate this sacd-iso-plugin in the main program? Would make things much easier. :) Does it make sense? Playback of SACD/DVDA ISOs is not very popular on Linux... Well there was no way to play SACD/DVDA ISOs on Linux, before you ported this plug-ins, so of course it was not popul...

Re: SACD ISO playback in MPD

I gave up on using ISO files. I find that they are so poorly tagged that I have no choice but to extract them to individual files and tag them properly. That is easily solved using XML file for tagging ISO contents, just as Foobar does. This is bad idea. There is no standard for using XML for taggi...

Re: SACD ISO playback in MPD

Hello all, Something seems to be wrong with my setup; whatever sample rate converter I use, I allways get the same CPU utilization when playing SACD ISOs (about 180% for 2CH and 400% for MCH, on Atom 2 core with hyperthreading=4threads) I can see in log files that settings are applied, for example: ...

Re: SACD ISO playback in MPD

2) A few options can be set in dvdaiso or sacddvdaiso section like: decoder { plugin "sacddvdaiso" no_downmixes "true" (true is default, better not set it to false) no_short_tracks "true" (true is default) # playable_area "multichannel" (not set by default, shows both tracks) # playable_area "stere...

Re: SACD ISO playback in MPD

MPD, being a daemon, cant. But I see no problem with using Foobar's editor to create those few XML files that are needed, if MPD SACD/DVD-A ISO plugin can read them? Actually, I'd wait until MPD gets consistent tag editing facility. I dont think MPD will ever get tag editing facility, as it is not ...

Re: SACD ISO playback in MPD

Hello Maxim, three quick Qs about DVD-A support: 1) All my DVD-A ISOs are scanned into database as 01 - Unknown Track (L-R 24/192000 MPL) (or simmilar depending on number of channels/rate) Is this expected? Can track names be extracted from DVD-A ISO's? 2) are there any decoder {plugin "dvdaiso" ......

Re: SACD ISO playback in MPD

Yes, foobar (foo_input_sacd plugin, actually) can have tracks info in *.xml file alongside with *.iso. But foobar has tag editor onboard. I'm not sure that MPD can do the same. MPD, being a daemon, cant. But I see no problem with using Foobar's editor to create those few XML files that are needed, ...

Re: SACD ISO playback in MPD

dstdec_threads - It's about how many parallel threads to use for DST->DSD decompression. By default it's 8 and should be not less than number of processor cores. So for 2-core Intel Atom CPU with HT enabled, this should be 4, right? Do you mean "Reading tags from XMLs, like in foobar"? Yes, reading...

Re: SACD ISO playback in MPD

You can set up options in mpd.conf: decoder { plugin "sacdiso" dstdec_threads "8" edited_master "true" lsbitfirst "false" } Can you please explain this settings a bit? As an interim solution I added 2CH,MCH to the end of ALBUM tag. Thanks, that should be OK for most people, although I would expect ...

Re: SACD ISO playback in MPD

Just in case someone is interested in this feature: http://git.musicpd.org/cgit/manisiutkin/mpd.git Yes someone is :) THANK YOU Maxim for your work! After sorting out the DSD related config in MPD, it works great for the best part. BTW, I did not find any instructions/HOWTO for setting up DSD playb...
