Selecting audio card in jukebox mode?

Postby afalout » Fri Jul 17, 2009 2:18 am

Hello,

I have 2 audio cards on my linux box, and I would like to use the USB one that has SPDIF connected to a high quality decoder to play my audio in jukebox mode.

With Alsa, this is usually done by specifying something like "hw:1,0" - somewhere - but I am unable to find this somewhere, well anywhere ;-)
So, the audio is played to the default output, together with all other system sounds - not too pleasant when an error dialog pops up at 110 db!

Is it possible? If not, could that become a feature request?

Much appreciated,
Andrej Falout

The easiest option is perhaps to set the USB device as the default audio device in Linux.

http://www.cahilig.org/select-default-a ... ubuntu-804

Alternatively, you can add the following system property when launching Subsonic from subsonic.sh (assuming you're using the standalone version of Subsonic):
Code: Select all
-Djavax.sound.sampled.SourceDataLine=#name_of_audiodevice


I haven't tried this on Linux, but it works on Windows. For instance, I have two devices called "SigmaTel Audio" and "SB Live! 24-bit External". To select the first I would do:
Code: Select all
"-Djavax.sound.sampled.SourceDataLine=#SigmaTel Audio"


Hope this helps!

Thanks for the reply, Sindre!

Setting another card as default is not an option, since that would send all system sounds (like loud error pop-ups sounds) to the same output as music.

I tried "-Djavax.sound.sampled.SourceDataLine=#USB Audio [hw:1,0]"
and "-Djavax.sound.sampled.SourceDataLine=#USB Audio"
but no sound...

Reading http://www.jsresources.org/faq_audio.html did not help either.

I suppose the problem is in device name I'm using, but that seems to me to be correct:

Help? Anyone? Nobody using non-default audio card to play music?

Solution - sort of

Postby afalout » Mon Aug 03, 2009 6:04 am

To find out names of audio devices as Java see them, compile and run this program:


import java.io.*;
import javax.sound.sampled.*;

public class audioDevList{
public static void main(String args[]){

//Get and display a list of
// available mixers.

Mixer.Info[] mixerInfo =
AudioSystem.getMixerInfo();
System.out.println("Available mixers:");
for(int cnt = 0; cnt < mixerInfo.length;
cnt++){
System.out.println(mixerInfo[cnt].
getName());
}//end for loop
}
}

On my system, this shows:

polar:/var/subsonic # java audioDevList
Available mixers:
Intel [plughw:0,0]
Intel [plughw:0,1]
Intel [plughw:0,2]
Audio [plughw:1,0]
U0x46d0x991 [plughw:2,0]
Java Sound Audio Engine
Port Intel [hw:0]
Port Audio [hw:1]
Port U0x46d0x991 [hw:2]

Now edit sound.properties in Java installation used to run SubSonic and add:

javax.sound.sampled.Clip=#Audio [plughw:1,0]
javax.sound.sampled.Port=#Port Audio [hw:1]
javax.sound.sampled.SourceDataLine=#Audio [plughw:1,0]
javax.sound.sampled.TargetDataLine=#Audio [plughw:1,0]

In my case, file was: /usr/lib64/jvm/java-1.6.0-sun-1.6.0/jre/lib/sound.properties

That works, but now ALL Java apps on my system output audio to that device - which defeats the purpose of having ONLY music played on that device, avoiding system sounds like incoming mail notifications blowing your ears out at 110 decibels....

Adding -Djavax.sound.sampled.SourceDataLine="#Audio [plughw:1,0]" to java command line does not work in any combination I could think of, with or without other lines I added to sound.properties file.

Does anyone know how to achieve this for SubSonic only, without using system-wide configuration file?

Thanks,
Andrej Falout

Finally, thanks afalout!

For all you non java people (like me) here's the compile steps:

  • Copy the above code into a file called 'audioDevList.java'
  • javac audioDevList.java
  • java audioDevList


I get this output:
Code: Select all
Available mixers:
NVidia [plughw:0,3]
NVidia [plughw:0,7]
NVidia [plughw:0,8]
NVidia [plughw:0,9]
Intel [plughw:1,0]
CX8801 [plughw:2,0]
Port NVidia [hw:0]
Port Intel [hw:1]
Port CX8801 [hw:2]



Now I modify /usr/bin/subsonic (on Ubuntu 10.x), might be subsonic_sh for you. I added the following line. Note the single quotes around the whole line. The # and space require it.

Code: Select all
  '-Djavax.sound.sampled.SourceDataLine=#NVidia [plughw:0,7]' \


'service subsonic restart' et viola!

I have tried the above as I am in a similar situation but when I do:

Code: Select all
sudo javac audioDevLisat.java


I get

Code: Select all
audioDevLisat.java:4: class audioDevList is public, should be declared in a file named audioDevList.java
public class audioDevList{
       ^
1 error


I know nothing about java really so have no idea what to do next!

Thanks

Spelling counts... the file name has to match the class name.

Well the script worked after I *ahem* changed the spelling...

and I get this output:

Code: Select all
Available mixers:
PulseAudio Mixer
NVidia [default]
NVidia [plughw:0,0]
NVidia [plughw:0,1]
NVidia [plughw:0,3]
Port NVidia [hw:0]


I then added the line as directed in my /usr/bin/subsonic file (does it matter where is should be in it?)

but when I restart subsonic, I get:

Code: Select all
* Restarting Subsonic Daemon subsonic
/usr/bin/subsonic: 124: -Djavax.sound.sampled.SourceDataLine=#NVidia [default]: not found
Started Subsonic [PID 16890, /var/subsonic/subsonic_sh.log]
   ...done.


It claims not to find it with every setting , 0,0 0,1 0,3 etc.

Code: Select all
* Restarting Subsonic Daemon subsonic
/usr/bin/subsonic: 124: -Djavax.sound.sampled.SourceDataLine=#NVidia [plughw:0,0]: not found

Hi John, yes position counts too :) It's got to be on the extended line that starts the process. the backslash (\) wraps a long line to make it more readable. This line will start with 'java'or '$JAVA' or '${JAVA}'.

Here's a snip of my file for reference :

Code: Select all
${JAVA} -Xmx${SUBSONIC_MAX_MEMORY}m \
  -Dsubsonic.home=${SUBSONIC_HOME} \
  -Dsubsonic.host=${SUBSONIC_HOST} \
  -Dsubsonic.port=${SUBSONIC_PORT} \
  -Dsubsonic.httpsPort=${SUBSONIC_HTTPS_PORT} \
  -Dsubsonic.contextPath=${SUBSONIC_CONTEXT_PATH} \
  -Dsubsonic.defaultMusicFolder=${SUBSONIC_DEFAULT_MUSIC_FOLDER} \
  -Dsubsonic.defaultPodcastFolder=${SUBSONIC_DEFAULT_PODCAST_FOLDER} \
  -Dsubsonic.defaultPlaylistFolder=${SUBSONIC_DEFAULT_PLAYLIST_FOLDER} \
  -Djava.awt.headless=true \
  '-Djavax.sound.sampled.SourceDataLine=#NVidia [plughw:0,7]' \
  -jar subsonic-booter-jar-with-dependencies.jar > ${LOG} 2>&1 &


Make sure there are no spaces after any of the backslashes.

You're welcome. Hopefully Soundcard selection becomes a gui feature for the Jukebox mode.
