bravia EX

Post by jps92 »

Hello,

The sound of flac and wav are screaming, if you remove "TranscodeAudio = WAV" from bravia EX.conf and change Supported = f:wav|aac a:lpcm m:audio/L16 to Supported = f:flac|aac a:lpcm m:audio/L16 it works.

Hi jps92, thank you. I have made that change now and it will be in the next release. Can I ask what model Bravia EX you have?

Can you please test this config:

Hello,

It’s worse. I have a braviaEX 500. Now flac are readable only by transcoding and wav are inaudible.

I think your change is just making it so that flac and wav are always transcoded, since flac will never contain lpcm audio. So we can do the equivalent by just removing those from the config

If it is actually streaming the flac instead of transcoding, please provide logs so I can see why that would happen

Otherwise can you please test this to see if it behaves the same as your fixed one:

Ok it works like that. Thank you. I also created a foobar2000.conf so I can read the ums files in foobar2000, just missing the RendererIcon.

Great, thank you. Cool to see they have made mobile versions. It probably supports more than mp3 format but this is a good start, it will be in our next release
