Transcoding and Extensions

Postby tommy » Thu Mar 25, 2010 3:06 pm

I am trying to transcode from FLAC to Ogg (and save the files on my Android phone). The process works fine, except that it gives the transcoded files an "mp3" extension, which throws up an io exception in Android.

Is my transcoding entry incorrect? Here it is:
Convert from: Flac
Convert to: Ogg
Step 1: flac -c -s -d %s
Step 2: oggenc2 -q 0 -

Like I said, it works fine for the most part. If I manually change the extension to .ogg the file plays correctly.

Thanks
tommy

Nevermind. The problem was on my end. I needed to restart the Subsonic app for the settings to transfer right.

Hey, I don't use the Android app but was wondering: you are transcoding and THEN downloading? How does that work? All the download options in the regular web app only support downloads of the original files (i.e. FLACs in your case), but not of the transcoded files themselves - they just stream. So please do tell: how do you do it?

Thank you,
ff :shock:

The android app lets you download transcoded files; the web app does not (as far as I can tell).
