PCM transcoding

    Hi! I can set up the fuppes to see videos and listen music in my xbox360. My music collection is in flac format, and my configuration works if I transcoding flac to mp3. But I don't want to transcode my lossless flac to mp3 because it is slow and I don't want to loss quality. fuppes can transcode to PCM but I'm not able to set it correctly.

    The relevant part of my fuppes.cfg:

    <file ext="flac">
      <transcode enabled="true">

    And the log:

    == lib/HTTP/HTTPRequestHandler.cpp (80) :: Sun Jan  6 15:02:33 2008 ==
    HandleHTTPRequest() :: /MediaServer/AudioItems/00FFFFFC02.l16?format=PCM

    == lib/ContentDirectory/ContentDatabase.cpp (417) :: Sun Jan  6 15:02:33 2008 ==

    I got the same when I set http_encoding to chunked. The transcoding_release_delay is 40, it should be enough. I tried to change pcm to wav but I got the same result.

    How can I set up any lossless encoder?

      Here's what i used in my config to transcode my flac files to my Playstation 3:

      <file ext="flac">
      <transcode enabled="true">

      works great for me.

        thank you for this config file.  i have been trying for nearly 6 months to get FLAC to my PS3.  I've tried everything except for Fuppes and slimserver from Slimdevices (along with their hardware).  I own the PS3, so why pay for a Squeezebox?  mediatomb had troubles, twonkymedia had troubles, tversity had troubles, Nero had troubles.  Before I went out to buy a Squeezebox I wanted to try the last media server I knew of fuppes...under linux.  Low and behold in under 1 hour I have it setup and transcoding my flacs to wav (going to mp3 doesn't seem to work).

        thanks so much.
