ogg/vorbis playback problems 1 month 3 weeks ago #55577

Hello,

I have some ogg/vorbis tracks on my NAS delivered by minimserver without transcoding. If I play a single ogg-track, this works fine. But if another track is following in  the playlist or is added to the playlist while the ogg track is playing, the ogg track is interrupted. I guess the interruption happens when the prebuffering of the next track is started. It does not matter if the next track is flac or ogg.

Can someone confirm this issue? If I am not the only one I would report it to minidsp.

Another issue: While playing an ogg track you cannot inline navigate in the track (at least when using the BubbleUPnP app. I did not try another app.) Is inline navigation with ogg/vorbis tracks not supported?

Thanks
Gert

PS: And no, I do not mean this one: www.jamendo.com/artist/958/ogg-vorbis/albums But I had downloaded some tracks from jamendo years ago that came in ogg/vorbis format. Today they seem to have switched to mp3.

I use Roon, so can’t help directly… but maybe you can try transcoding your ogg files to flac?

Since both are lossless, they’ll be the same quality.

My workaround would be to transcode the tracks to wav on the fly. But I would prefer to know that vorbis playback works correctly with th SHD streamer.
