Are you shure that you installed ffmpeg? Debian use avconv instead of ffmpeg but you can create a symlink.

avconf is a fork of ffmpeg. The parameters for flac encoding are the same. As i said, i created a symlink on a raspberry test system and it worked without any problems.

if you create a symlink, you can leave everything as it is in subsonic. If you wanna use avconv you can keep the parameters but you have to replace ffmepeg with avconv in your subsonic transcoding settings.

so is avconv more likely to work with flac files than ffmpeg, as ffmpeg shows error above, i guess ill try tonight when i get home.

changed ffmpeg to avconv, still no luck, still reporting that transcoder not installed.
