Hi all I am trying to get LS to play large mp3 files 50MB + but it
seems to have a problem playing anything that large, the stream comes
out with squelchy kind of blips on the stream
I have narrowed it down and am testing a single line to a playlist
with one large file in but im getting the same problem, is there a
setting i can put in to make it play ok?
this is my one line I am using a normal playlist for the main playlist
liquidsoap 'output.icecast.mp3(host = "localhost", port =
8000,user="....", password = "....", mount = ".....",
I have tried changing Length setting under the playlist to 120 but
that had no affect (randommix = playlist(length=120.,"/home/push/audio/
we are using Gentoo and Liquidsoap 0.3.8.1.
Our station is based on DJs uploading 2 one hour mixes each week so
this is a bit of a problem

I am surprised by your report. I often replayed live shows without any
problem, and dolebrai.net streams mixes every week without any problem
either. Maybe it's not the size but the encoding or something else?
In any case, there is no possible tuning. For decoding MP3 files, we
rely of libmad. You can try playing your file with madplay: if the
result is better, then we're having an issue in liquidsoap, in which
case you should send us the file to see if we can reproduce and fix
Another thing to try is decoding the MP3 using an external MP3
decoder, for example mplayer. With SVN version of liquidsoap you can
enable it using the command enable_mplayer(), then it will attempt to
use mplayer as a file decoder. However, you should make sure at
configure-time to disable native MP3 decoding using the mad library,
because I think it'll still be attempted before mplayer.
Hope this helps,
Hi all !

I fully agree with David. We also play recorded shows which are big files.
Also, the decoder never parses the whole file at once, so there shouldn't be
any difference in size.
However, an incompatibility on the format or another bug is also possible, to
if you can reproduce, please send us the file !
