Mac OS Audio output

Post by manuel.gonzalez » July 20th, 2019, 8:25 pm

Hello

I want to configure MPD 0.21.7_1 audio output to use an specific output of my Mac (not the default) so I followed the manual page:

device NAME Sets the device which should be used. Uses device names as listed in the “Audio Devices” window of “Audio MIDI Setup”.

and set

audio_output {
type "osx"
name "USB Audio CODEC"
mixer_type "hardware"
}

but the audio still goes thru the default system output, so it is posible to select an specific output for MPD to use?

thanks

I don't see a "device" setting in your config.

Sorry, I misunderstood the Manual but now I added device like this

audio_output {
type "osx"
name "USB Audio CODEC"
device "USB Audio CODEC 1"
mixer_type "software"
}

I took the name from the audio midi setup but the log of mpd says:

Jul 22 11:06 : exception: Failed to enable output "USB Audio CODEC" (osx)
Jul 22 11:06 : exception: nested: Found no audio device with name 'USB Audio CODEC 1'


I have tried different names with lower case, higher case, just "usb audio codec" and the device was not found.

there's something else that im doing wrong?

Thanks for the help
