Not really. It should be on the wiki (http://wiki.fireflymediaserver.org), but isn’t. Here’s the general lowdown, though, and maybe I’ll cut/paste this into the wiki:
win32-event: a simple plugin to feed debug and error messages to the tray icon using named pipes.
ssc-wma: win32 transcoder to transcode .wma files to wav for platforms that won’t play wma (roku, itunes, etc). Note that the roku will play some, but won’t play wma pro, or wma lossless, or wma voice, etc. It won’t transcode protected wma, though, as one needs a license from microsoft (and they likely wouldn’t license a protected wma to .wav converter, for obvious reasons).
ssc-ffmpeg: convert .ogg and .flac to wav. Mostly useful on win32, as the ffmpeg api doesn’t seem stable enough to track on unix distros.
out-daap: the daap output plugin — for serving media to iTunes and iTunes compatible devices. Strangely, the xml api for manipulating playlists is in the out-daap module, so without this module, the smart playlist editor on the web config doesn’t work. That needs to be refactored, but hasn’t been yet.
out-rsp: the rsp output plugin, for serving roku soundbridge devices. This is generally much faster than the daap output plugin, so should be used in preference when serving soundbridges.
There really isn’t much per-module config. There are some [daap] section config values, but that’s about it. They are detailed on the wiki under the config section.
Yell if this isn’t what you are looking for, or if you have specific questions.

This is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks.
