RE: Qobuz playback - Invalid Request Signature parameter
Qobuz does not accept the signature parameter. It has something to do with the app secret. Either the app secret could be wrong, or revoked, or it could be that QObuz requires that specific app secret to be used in the specific way. I know that there was a app secret that had to be Xor'ed in a special way.
It is not as easy to pick up an app secret for QObuz as they use MD5.
RE: Display details of Tidal tracks in native playlist
You need to enable "Write metadata when saving playlists" in the playlist settings.
RE: Installing Strawberry on macOS Catalina 10.15.5
You should be able to install it by just double clicking the DMG and drag the Strawberry folder over to "system". It's the same way similar dmg's are installed on macOS.
However we only provide experimental development builds for macOS since we don't have any developers with mac active in the project. You can download here: https://builds.strawberrymusicplayer.org/macos/
RE: Option to apply (negative) gain to tracks without ReplayGain metadata.
GStreamer has something called fallback-gain. I've added it to the backend settings now.
I've also increased the range for pre-amp to go from -60 to +60 DB as that's what gstreamer supports now.
Builds should be available on https://builds.strawberrymusicplayer.org/ in an hour or so.
Pick version 0.9.3-7 or higher.
RE: MacBook Pro Touchbar - Media Control Button Compatibility
macOS needs to some special tricks to receive media keys without iTunes receiving them (or maybe another application), we used SPMediaKeyTap for this but it was removed by a contributor. Unfortunately I don't have a mac so I can't look into or fix it.
A developer with macOS needs to fix this, I don't know of anyone.
RE: Raspberry Pi4 install on Raspberry OS
It depends on what Linux distribution you run on it.
You might need to compile yourself from source unless strawberry is available for arm in their repository.
But it's pretty easy as long as you know what dependencies are required so you have the required development packages installed before you start.
Instructions are here:
Most of the other Debian based distros should work with either the debian or ubuntu guide.
RE: Strawberry is not scanning my collection
Then it looks like it stops on a directory level before it parses any files. It will skip any directory that is hidden, or has files named ".nomedia" or ".nomusic". Other than that, it's hard to tell what could be wrong. It's working for everyone else, so it must be something to do with your directory. Try a different directory.

RE: Control Strawberry with IR remote (LIRC support) ?
RE: Remote control option? Use my Android phone to control the app
I've never tried the KDE connect thing but I'm guessing that it uses MPRIS2 to Strawberry and also have a service running which listens to a port which then function as a received on the computer which again the Android remote connects to.
All such remotes which uses standard MPRIS2 will function with Strawberry.
But they only have basic functionality: https://specifications.freedesktop.org/mpris-spec/latest/
The purpose of having a custom remote specifically for the Strawberry like Clementine does is to manage all features of the player, not just basic play/stop/pause, etc. It won't be compatible with other audio players.
RE: Spotify HiFi, Reason to Support?
Spotify does not provide full-length stream URL's in the public API as far as I know.
Clementine uses the official library to receive raw audio, the library was discontinued many years ago, and I'm unsure if it still works. I've only briefly looked at how it works.
But the way Clementine does it is very complicated code-wise, and the specific code that links to the spotify library (blob) runs in it's own process outside of the main application not to violate the GPL license, and is usually not included in ie.: distro packaging. So the users has to click the download button in the settings to get both the spotify library and the clementine blob code.
Does Spotify in Clementine work anymore at all?
Even if I was to work on it I would need a subscription which I need to pay for, and I'm not even interested in having a spotify subscription. It would probably require to decrypt the stream in some way and implement a gstreamer plugin to handle it. I'm not keen on using the old spotify library even if it still works, since it's closed source and discontinued.
Feel free to do it if you think it is easy.
