Re: No ALSA output on MPD > 0.21.3

Every MPD source tarball contains full documentation in the "doc" directory. The one on the MPD website is just a copy of that. This has nothing to do with real-time scheduling (MPD 0.20 had that as well, added in v0.19) - this bluez-alsa bug was revealed by a different MPD change which switched the...

Re: No ALSA output on MPD > 0.21.3

I, too, fear this bluez-alsa bug will never be fixed. The bluez-alsa developer appeared to be unconvinced that this is really his bug. Pity.

Re: elapsed time on status not updating?

Just in case "21.4" means "MPD 0.21.4": your MPD version is ten bug-fix releases behind and thus unsupported. If this still occurs with the latest version, write a bug report, and provide more information. (Why do you believe the elapsed time should change? You did not mention that you're currently ...

Re: Filter some formats to mpd

Never do `mpc ls|mpc add`. This is bloated, error prone and fragile.

You can write `*.mp4` in your `.mpdignore` and MPD will ignore those files during database update.

Re: Second MPD instance for HTTP streaming

Then you should configure the "proxy" to connect to port 6700.

Re: Second MPD instance for HTTP streaming

Your configuration doesn't make sense. You configured port 6600, but what port is your first MPD running on? And your "proxy" database by default connects to localhost:6600, which means your second MPD connects to itself.

Re: Second MPD instance for HTTP streaming

By creating a second configuration file with a different port and different output configuration, optionally attached to the first MPD with the "proxy" database plugin (https://www.musicpd.org/doc/html/user.html#satellite). Then you can create a copy of "mpd.service" which specifies the second confi...

Re: Local music in more than one folder -- unified view

You can create one music_directory containing symlinks to the other folders. Or bind-mount them there.

Re: Problem with Raspberry Pi & 48kHz files.

I think you should first apply all MPD bugfixes before we investigate further. Your MPD version is 9 bug-fix releases behind. If the latest version still has this problem, write a bug report and upload a file which fails.

Re: Problems compiling on Raspberry Pi

I see you used the compiler flags "-fno-exceptions -fno-rtti". Where do those come from? That's what breaks your build.

Re: 16bit sources on 32bit USB receiver

Should not affect sound quality, and your point about software volume sounds reasonable. Note that MPD attempts to preserve as many bits of precision as possible; for example, it reads 24 bit samples from a MP3 file, and 32 bit float from Ogg Vorbis. Even though their input files were probably 16 bi...

Re: Socket connection closes without all information received

Your code is broken. 1. It sends the newline twice, which means MPD closes the connection due to a malformed command line. This is what may have caused the transfer to be closed. 2. It uses binary mode for a text connection. 3. It keeps on receiving forever until MPD closes the connection, and this ...

Re: Socket connection closes without all information received

MPD doesn't know if mpc or PHP connects to it, so this can hardly be a difference. I rather think your PHP code is buggy, but I can't tell without seeing it.

Re: Question about gapless playback

Not quite. If you want to have MP3 files, then you should use LAME, because only LAME adds metadata to the files which allow MPD to do gapless MP3 playback. But that doesn't imply that you must use MP3 for gapless playback. Other codecs are always gapless (Vorbis!), and don't need this kind of metad...

Re: Xenial to Bionic: mpd.service start operation timed out

It's a pity that Debian-based distributions (e.g. Ubuntu and Raspbian) ship with outdated and discontinued MPD versions. Their refusal to provide bug fixes to their users creates a lot of sorrow. These distributions need to hear more loud complaints from their users.

Re: Xenial to Bionic: mpd.service start operation timed out

Your MPD version is old and unsupported.
But my random guess is that the upgrade broke the NFS client, and now MPD times out while waiting for data from the NFS mount.
If you need further help, first upgrade to a supported version (i.e. 0.21.13 or git master).
