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: 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: 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: Display details of Tidal tracks in native playlist
You need to enable "Write metadata when saving playlists" in the playlist settings.
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: 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: 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: How to restore stats
You can either use the original DB file and modify the paths with SQL commands before you start strawberry.
The other option is to import the data to the new DB based on artist/album/title, you can use parts of the guide I made here, but you have to modify the query to import only playcounts and rating from the other DB.
I plan to make a new release soon, there will be an option to turn on song fingerprinting and tracking to prevent losing playcounts and ratings.
RE: Strawberry gets muted in pulse after each track
It could be a gstreamer/pulseaudio related issue as all 3 uses gstreamer.
Check that you have the gstreamer pulseaudio package installed,
Select pulseaudio in the backend setting, and try disabling the fading settings.
I have to admit I don't have much experience with PulseAudio, I don't even have it installed as I always use ALSA directly.
So if my suggestions don't work try seek help in a Linux distro forum or support directly from pulseaudio support.
RE: Understanding Playlists vs Queues vs Multiple Queues
The queue is a way of temporarily picking some songs to play and their order. You can't play more than 1 playlist at a time.
RE: How can I restore Smart Playlists?
They are stored in the registry under:
So you can simply delete "SerializedSmartPlaylists" and it should restore them on the next run.
Make sure Strawberry is closed, and not minimized to tray when you do it.
RE: Gstreamer plugin issue
The links in the station column on https://www.hiresaudio.online/cd-quality-internet-radio/ are to websites, not streams. You need to click on the website links to find the actual stream URLs.
Can you share a specific stream URL that does not work?
