OS: FreeBSD 7.2-RELEASE-p6
Running on Pentium 3 800MHz/256MB/ABIT AX6B (Pretty old, I know), standard compilation included with FREENAS 0.7.1 Shere (revision 5024)
I have a mixture of audio file types some .wma, .mp3 and .flac. Initially when I installed this latest version from the latest FreeNAS, I deleted the old fuppes.db, rebuilt the database and the virtual container from the fuppes webpage and all worked beautifully. After a week or so, without me having played with the fuppes/UPnP configuration settings at all in FreeNAS, I couldn't stream flacs to my remote device (a UPnP enabled clock radio). When I investigated this further with a variety of different media renderer options, I discovered that the .flac files were now being reported by fuppes as .mp3 and indeed would stream to MediaPlayer on a laptop as .MP3 files - in other words fuppes has started to transcode the .flac files to mp3. Try as I might, with enabling and then disabling the transcoding switch on the UPnP config page in the FreeNAS web interface, rebuilding the database/virtual container etc. it is still transcoding the flacs to mp3. I am using the standard fuppes.cfg that comes with FreeNAS - should I edit out all references to .flac transcoding?
