MPD Unable to read tags from some DSF files (solved)

I have an issue with some dsf files. MPD does not read the tags from these files. I have a sample file here: http://bit.ly/1xWZQuF mpd --version Music Player Daemon 0.20 (v0.19.3-15-gc3f6502) Copyright (C) 2003-2007 Warren Dukes <warren.dukes@gmail.com> Copyright (C) 2008-2014 Max Kellermann <max@du...

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: MPD GMPC and DSD

Update MPD's data base and post the log file. Don't forget to set log to "verbose".

My 3.13 kernel supports native DSD. Can you send a link regarding 3.18?

Compare the permissions on the DSD files with the PCM files.

Re: GIT version of MPD and Native DSD

Ron, MPD (from GIT) should pass native DSD by default to a compatible DAC. As far I understand this (and I may be wrong), you can have the following: 1. Native DSD - MPD will stream DSD to a capable DAC by default. No need for "dop" setting to be available. 2. Upsample PCM - MPD will convert the nat...

Re: REQUEST: Walkthrough of Installing from Source

The configure / make / make install parts are relevant to compile MPD. The rest are OS specific. It will be challenging a one-all be-all document.

Re: PCM plays fine but DSD files [dff & dsf] do not...

‘SND_PCM_FORMAT_DSD_U8’ is for sending native DSD streams to you DAC. If your DAC does not support native mode, don't use it. In order to compile MPD, you will need to install the various dependencies. For Ubuntu / Debian, check out this page: http://www.musicpd.org/doc/user/ch02s02.html Potential i...

Re: Adding wav files from SD card recorder

Convert them to FLAC. If you rip your vinyl, try to rip them at 24bit / 96kHz.

mp3tag works fine. I have some dsf files that their tags cannot be read by MPD. I will look into it tonight. I suspect that it the ID3 version that has the incompatibility issues.

You cannot seek dsf / dff files with the current MPD. How did you tag your dsf files? Which version of ID3?

Re: PCM plays fine but DSD files [dff & dsf] do not...

You are using a very old version of MPD. You get the message because 0.16.7 IS the latest version to your platform. You will need o compile MPD from source or find a newer package for you distribution. Also, DoP works regardless of WAV files. You do not need to convert anything to FLAC. Not sure abo...

You can try playing the problematic dsf / dff files with another player to see if this happens as well.
