MyBook Live Flac Decode

How to let Twonky decode flac files

there is a file called flac-wav.desc in the directory /usr/local/twonkymedia-5/cgi-bin

you can change the file to look like this:

# transcode audio
#(c) 2008 by PacketVideo
exec: flac --silent --decode $infile -o $outfile
# capabilities
from=audio/x-flac
to=audio/x-wav
synchronous
priority=idle

Or experiment with these settings:

# transcode audio (flac to wav)
#(c) 2010 by PacketVideo
exec: flac $infile -dfs --force-raw-format --endian=big --sign=signed -o $outfile
# capabilities
from=audio/x-flac
to=audio/x-wav
synchronous
priority=idle

then you also have to install flac

apt-get update
apt-get install flac
ldconfig

Restart twonty:

/etc/init.d/twonky restart

Now Twonky can transcode flac into wav. Your mediaplayer will be able to play the twonky-flac transcoded files
