FLAC to WAV transcoding using external transcoder - krultan - 02-10-2017 11:54

Hi,

I've got a question. MinimServer can transcode from FLAC to WAV out-of-the-box. But, it is also possible to use ffmpgeg or any other transcoder to do the job.

Has anyone experimented with other transcoders? And, more important, did you experience any difference in Sound Quality?

Peter.

I have compared the internal transcoder with using ffmpeg to transcode and I haven't noticed any difference. I have also compared on-the-fly transcoding with doing offline conversion to WAV and then playing WAV from a disk file and I haven't noticed any difference.
