Transcode selected streams only

RE: Transcode selected streams only
What exactly do you want to do? For example, if the radio stream is MP3, what transcoding or processing do you want to apply using MinimStreamer?

RE: Transcode selected streams only
The reason why I try it, I have a playlist e.g.:
Quote:#EXTINF:-1,Bayern 2
https://streams.br.de/bayern2sued_2.m3u
#EXTINF:-1,Radio Lora
http://live.lora924.de:8000/lora-hq.mp3
The playlist is shown on my control apps; Hifi Cast and Bubble UPNP.
When I open an item.
Bubble UPNP cannot play it.
Hifi Cast can play it, but I cannot play it on my renderer. I have to use Bluetooth to play the radio on my renderer.
Therefore I want to try, if it works with MinimStreamer.
Any idea?

RE: Transcode selected streams only
My apologies for misunderstanding your question. I thought you were asking about using MinimStreamer transcoding for internet radio streams (the original topic of this thread). To use MinimStreamer without transcoding, you need to add a stream ID prefix to the stream name in the #EXTINF line. For example, you can change the first stream to

#EXTINF -1,[BAYERN2] Bayern 2

RE: Transcode selected streams only
What do I need to enter here?
stream.options
stream.transcode
I do not understand how to do it.
Thanks in advance to an answer.

For what you want to do, the default settings in your screenshot are fine.

RE: Transcode selected streams only
I cannot play the stream in Bubble UPNP.
With Hifi Cast, I can only play it on my smartphone and stream it via Bluetooth, that is the reason why I try to convert it.

RE: Transcode selected streams only
I found out what was wrong.
The link to the playlist does not work.
I opened it with my browser and downloaded it.
In the playlist are links, too. I copied one and inserted it into my playlist.
Now it works.

RE: Transcode selected streams only
I have checked what is happening with the Bayern 2 stream. The playlist URL is returning an incorrect MIME type (application/octet-stream) which prevents MinimStreamer from identifying it as an m3u playlist.

The next MinimStreamer update will check for this situation and use the file extension of the stream (.m3u) to identify it as an m3u playlist.

Thank you for letting me know about this problem.
