Transcode FLAC to MP3?
Hi, I was wondering if it's possible to transcode from FLAC to mp3 with MinimStreamer?

My use case is that I want to be able to access my music library at home from work through an SSH tunnel. In order to save on bandwidth, I would like to be able transcode my FLAC files to MP3. Thanks!

Transcoding to MP3 is currently supported for network streams but not for local files. The reason for this difference is that it is harder to implement pausing and seeking when transcoding to MP3 than when transcoding to WAV or LPCM. Adding this support is on my list of possible enhancements for a future version of MinimStreamer.
