View Full Version : Non-X Linux Streamers
25th March 2004, 00:38
Are there any programs out there for Linux (particularly 2.4.25 kernel) that can send the songs to the DNAS server, without requiring me to run X? (ie. not XMMS, not ALSAPlayer)?
(Note: I already stfw'd a dozen times)

Check out sc_trans.

Thanks. Shortly after posting, I found the link. However; sc_trans has my little AMD K-6II 450 loaded 80-90%. Are there any alternatives other than lowering the bitrate (ie. if I already have all of the songs in 128kbps mp3's, so no transcoding is needed).

Both the DSP and sc_trans re-encode from the source bitrate to the destination bitrate.
It's not necessarily the bitrate that's the problem, it's the encoding as a whole is CPU intensive.

set your quality to something more sane like 5 and CPU will dramatically decrease.

5kbps streaming? if i'm not seriously mistaken, that would sound very bad, wouldn't it?

no, not bitrate, the quality setting It can be set in a range of 0-10, set it to 5.

Ah. Will do. (Was at 1, now it is at 5. Will drop lower if needed).
Making a script to autobuild a playlist was a bit hellish, but I did it (yay). The hard part was realizing that the songs had different directory depths (1-3 subdirectories out of the main dir... ie. trance/cool.mp3 wouldn't show up the same as trance/old/cool.mp3)
