Syntax for resampler?

Just a short question: Does somebody know the correct syntax for the resampler-plugins in mpd.conf? I tried to integrate soxr with: resampler { plugin "soxr" quality "high" } like it is written in the documentation, but that does not work. With this lines MPD does not start any more... Then i found ...

Re: MPD and Tags

Use the source Luke :) See src/tag/TagId3.cxx (scan_id3_tag) TPE3 and TPE4 are mapped to MPD's performer tag. Thanks for the advice skidoo. But sorry - cannot really read src/tag/TagId3.cxx. No programmer here... :oops: Are you sure about TPE3 and TPE4? TPE3 normally is linked to "Conductor", but w...

MPD and Tags

Hi, is there somebody, who has an overview of tags which can be used in MPD? The whole thing sounds simple, but i don't think, that it really is... To show you what i mean, please take a look at this site: http://wiki.hydrogenaud.io/index.php?title=Tag_Mapping In my music collection i have flac- and...

Re: Multiple values for specific tags

Just a suggestion:
Use "\\" as seperator. Works very well here with Mp3tag as tagging-device. But i use it only for artist and album-artist. I don't know, if it works with genres.

Re: SACD ISO playback in MPD

Too bad.
I tried to initialize the integration of of the SACD-ISO-playback-capability into main-MPD.

http://bugs.musicpd.org/view.php?id=4321

But it seems not to work out. The software is not free, so its illegal to use it in MPD. What a pity!

Re: SACD ISO playback in MPD

Yes, thats exactly my opinion too! :) Thanks for the hint with the xml-tag-files, which work now also with MPD - i did not know that. And i very much agree to the following: - That people without skills to compile MPD ca use it, by installing pre-compiled packages taht are built from MPD main projec...

Re: SACD ISO playback in MPD

Just a short question: Do you intend to integrate this sacd-iso-plugin in the main program? Would make things much easier. :) And second question: About tagging - do you see a chance to change the tags in the sacd-iso directly? Same again - would make things much easier. :D And thanks a lot for your...

Re: MPD GMPC and DSD

Check the content of the dsf/dff-files. If it's DST (meaning compressed DSD), mpd does not take it in the library.
You can check it easily with foobar2000.

Re: Deinstall MPD impossible

Maybe in the version-history the database-file has changed since 0.18.7? My old database-file originates from vers. 0.18.10. The symptoms were quite strange (but logical when you know the reason...): You can start the mpd-server in a normal way without any error-message. The client (mpdroid in my ca...

Re: Deinstall MPD impossible

Puhhh - success at last! Its not the git version, but the Ubuntu-repo-version, i think 0.18.7 or something, which is now working here. I hope recompiling the git-version will work as it did before upgrading the system. If somebody has the same problems as i have: the trick was to delete the database...

Re: Deinstall MPD impossible

Thanks again for the answer. I installed MPD in a difficult way - first i installed it from the repos, then i downloaded the version 0.18.10 when it was the git version, compiled it and put it to /usr/local/bin. --> Everything was working normal. Then i updated Lubuntu and MPD crashed. And now, than...

Re: Deinstall MPD impossible

Thanks a lot for your reply! You are right - it's a problem of the package manager. I alreadey tried killall mpd, but that gives me as result, that no process is running. And when i want to deinstall MPD it needs the stupid pid-file to stop the process, which is not running in reality. :? But on the...

You have to compile the new version on your own and the documentation about that is hmmm... what shall i say... :roll:
