I am running the version of Firefly I downloaded from http://www.rokulabs.com/downloads/sb_and_sbr_support_downloads/FireflySetup.exe on a Windows XP SP2 machine with all the latest windows update patches installed.
I cannot get it to serve my SoundBridge a SHN file. I have had no trouble with other formats (including FLAC, which required me to add that extension using the configuration utility.) I reduced the test case down to a library consisting of a single directory containing about 10 SHN files. Here’s what my config file looks like, after stripping out all the comments:
web_root = C:Program FilesFirefly Media Serveradmin-root
admin_pw = firefly
db_type = sqlite
db_parms = C:Program FilesFirefly Media Server
mp3_dir =E:Flac Music
servername =Firefly Media Server
runas = nobody
extensions = .mp3,.m4a,.m4p,.wma,.flac,.shn,.wav
rescan_interval = 600
always_scan = 1
process_m3u = 1
scan_type = 2
truncate = 1
logfile = firefly.log
plugin_dir = C:Program FilesFirefly Media Serverplugins
plugins = rsp.dll,w32-event.dll,ssc-ffmpeg.dll,ssc-wma.dll
I realize SHN is a bit limited as a format in that it carries no metadata, but I did see a another SHN question on the forum (about outboard metadata), so I’m wondering what I need to do to get Firefly to serve it to the Roku properly.23rd January 2007 at 7:47 pm #8661fizzeParticipant
Well, to play some shorten files I guess you’d have to utilize transcoding, be it by script or via ffmpeg. *shrug*24th January 2007 at 4:25 am #8662rpeddeParticipant

But the file types that ffmpeg will transcode are hardcoded (based on those codec that I have metadata for).
So it would require source hacking to make it work.

Thanks. Converting the SHN’s to FLAC’s is the path of least resistance, then.
