How to play .dsf files
Great looking player, THANKS! I read about Strawberry on itsfoss.com and had to try it because the author said it plays DSD files (e.g. .dsf). However, that capability isn't listed under your "Features", and indeed, when I try to add a dsf file this is the error:
"File /home/xyz/Music/love.dsf is not recognized as a valid audio file."
I think you're using gstreamer and dpkg shows libav is loaded:
gstreamer1.0-libav:amd64 1.16.2-2 amd64 ffmpeg plugin for GStreamer
That file (and many others) play fine as DoP with this ffmpeg command line:
ffmpeg -hide_banner -i /home/xyz/Music/love.dsf -c:a pcm_s24le -f alsa plughw:1,3
What am I doing wrong? Strawberry has exactly what I need to replace foobar2000 (under Wine of course) as a native player. Please assume I'm an idiot who knows just enough to be dangerous.
Thanks for any help.
