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: Strawberry Crashing Since Last Update
I wrote a small test program a long time ago, to specifically test the tagreader stability, this program tests the specific messagereply code in a loop, so I'm running tagreader read/writes 9 million times to verify if it's stable or not.
I can reproduce crashes with the specific change I pointed out, but not without it, so there was definitely something problematic with my fix. However there is another problem if I remove this fix, than tag writes can get stuck that will cause the edit tag window to be stuck on saving.
It's probably coincidental that it does not crash for you anymore.
I'm working on another fix. I will let you know once it's done so you can test again.
RE: Strawberry refuses to perform a collection scan
Found the problem now. This should fix it https://github.com/strawberrymusicplayer/strawberry/commit/5256d795b1c072496390efc8a523ce6a5dc97926
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.
