Adding DSFs to Library
I'm able to play DSF files just fine in Strawberry, and I can even see their tags in the playback queue. But when I add them to a folder inside of a scanned directory (just like other FLAC files) they don't appear in Strawberry, even after full rescan.
OS: Linux Mint
Quick update: I realized that Strawberry only reads the tags when the files are actively being played, unlike FLAC which can be read in unplayed form. Issue still exists.
Sorry to say that this seems to be by design. Have previously brought it up myself: Library support for DSF files. It's a limitation of taglib and the author not wanting to maintain a custom-patched version of taglib for DSF support.
Dang. Thanks for replying.
It's frustrating b/c DSF uses ID3v2 just like everything else, and taglib can clearly already 'see' the metadata in playback.
Who knows, might have to get off the bench and into the game and contribute. I have some basic dev skills (Python, C) and can probably help out. I just don't really know what that would involve.
I'll post again if I find a simple workaround.
