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: Import ratings from other players esp Clementine
I made a guide now to import most data from Clementine:
This is useful for users who want to import all their playlists from Clementine, since playlists are based on ROWID's from the collection library, it is necessary to import the collection too.
It would be great if you want to make a script.
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: Duplicate Entries
The easiest to do is to delete the collection directories, and then re-add the them, that will however loose playcounts, ratings and mess up the playlists (if you have any).
So if you need to keep ratings, playcounts and playlists, you can do it with SQL queries.
RE: Compile Strawberry with libgpod to access ipod?
The current macOS (0.9.3) release does not have iPod support.
If you want, you can try the latest development release from https://builds.strawberrymusicplayer.org/macos/ where ipod support is added.
However, only the old iPod's work, like Classic 6th gen and older. Apple did lot's a things to block 3rdparty software from accessing them, so the newer ones will not work.
RE: Library catalog scan misses or mixes tracks
What OS, file system, audio format and ripper you used?
What version of Strawberry?
If you are on Linux or macOS you can run strawberry on the terminal and do a full rescan, then see if there are any errors shown on the terminal.
RE: I can't play TIDAL music
Make sure you have glib-networking installed.
Could also be missing root certificates on your computer.
Check if other non-tidal streams are working, for example one of these:
Go to playlist / add stream to add test it.
RE: Gapless playback
Gapless playback is when there is no gap when transitioning to the next song. It's always enabled, and there is no setting for it.
It does not strip the actual silent beginning or ending from a song, that's something else, not what's usually considered gapless playback. There is no option or plans to add any feature to strip off silent parts from a song.
