Volumio build with SACD ISO support spotted

Postby Karine-Johanne » Sun Sep 23 2018 18:27

According to this website, there are already compiled, working versions of Volumio supporting SACD Iso playback.
Not owning a Baidu account myself, i haven't been able to download and try them.
If anyone has a Baidu account or is fluent enough in Chinese to contact the blog owner and ask him if he could upload a copy on Mega or other websites, please be my guest.

Latest version seems to be volumio-2.457-2018-09-17-sacd-q2m-pi.rar
I believe it is using manisiutkin's mpd fork.

Best Regards,

Karine-Johanne Charlot

I was able to get a hold of it.

As expected, it plays SACD Isos just fine.
I think DSD playback maybe buggy. Feel free to check and confirm.
It's in Chinese, you'll have to change preferences to your prefered language (unless you read Chinese of course).
As i understand it, updating Volumio to the latest version may make you lose Iso playback functionality (by reverting to the defaut packages).
When installing plugins, it points to Chinese mirrors. You may have to alter some config files to optimize it.
I will not leave this link active forever, so i suggest you upload it to google drive or the likes if you wish to share it.

We don't use the MPD patches for DSD because we found the resulting binary very unstable. I am not suggesting this binary is per se, just sharing my experience.

Another point of consideration: I would be very cautious to install modified ISOs without knowing exactly who made them and what's inside...

That's right, this is why i emphasized that many things seemed to be pointing to Chinese servers. Anyway, i'm not giving it my Spotify credentials...

By the way, isn't the current main branch of MPD supporting ISOs yet ?

I believe the mpd fork being used is this one :

https://github.com/archphile/mpd-manisiutkin

I guess people with coding skills can try compiling their own Volumio using this one, no harm done.

Nothing nasty to report so far. DST compressed SACDs play rather well, which is something i couldn't do even with Dsf files before.

Tried on RaspberryPi 3B+.

I see versions of Moode and Runaudio also getting ISO support.

Actually, ISO support is available on Volumio, but I've hidden it since it was quite unstable.
If that's interesting for the community I can enable it, with all the "warnings" needed.

If it is something that can be switched on and off at the first sight of trouble, like those options of the 'dev' sections, then yes, i think it would definitely make a lot of people happy ! ^^

As long as everyone understands that this is an experimental feature.

Hi,

Yes this would be very appreciated to be able to enable/disable it on the /dev side.

Any ETA on unlocking this functionality ?
