Music file types - Alan Robinson - 15-03-2020 17:16

I have sometimes several versions of the same album - mp3 wav flac etc.

I want to be able to select an album with a particular file type

I am using Linn Kazoo on Windows 10 for minimserver running on a Pi

The only solution I can find is to rename my albums - Abbey Road mp3, Abbey Road wav and so on

Is there a better way in say the Album info section?

Thanks (I have over 10,000 albums)

The special tag #AudioFormat contains the audio format of the file (MP3, FLAC, etc.). You can include this information in the album title by adding the following to the tagFormat property:

Album.displayFormat={$album^$#AudioFormat^ [^]}

You also need to add #AudioFormat to the itemTags property. After making these changes, restart MinimServer.

Simon

Brilliant!!

Is this sort of configuration documented somewhere?

The tagFormat property is described in this section. The #AudioFormat special tag is described in this section.

Picking this one up, I actually use the AudioFormat tag, but would really prefer, if it could be displayed in a „bit/khz“ format rather than just CD CD+ HD.

Any chance to have it show as „24/192“ „24/96“ etc.

Many thanks

This information is available from the #AudioData special tag.

#AudioFormat -> encoding format of the file
#AudioData -> bit rate / bit depth / sample rate
#AudioQuality -> CD, HD, etc.

Uups - I missed that. Thanks for the pointer. I‘ll try that out


RE: Music file types - bbrip - 16-03-2020 16:22

Almost there. I now get 24/44100 24/96000 etc...

Can I somehow divide the sample rate by 1000, so I get 24/44, 24/96 etc.? Thats the more common way of displaying a FLAC quality as used in download stores etc..

Many thanks

It isn't possible to change this string. The numbers are exact because they are computed for for DSD as well as PCM (so DSD64 is 1/2822400).


RE: Music file types - bbrip - 16-03-2020 22:37

Thats what I feared.

It is technically precise but I am just wondering whether it is the most practicable / user friendly implementation.

Any chance of giving this a further tought to display as DSD64, 24/96 etc.?
