Most of it was stuff I downloaded, and the music I'm talking about is some of what I downloaded off of cds into my library. A lot of what's coming from the library I can listen to, I can't figure out the connection to the stuff I can't.

    Once again thanks.
    Can the palm music player app play these tracks? If it can't then Ampache Mobile won't be able to either. If it can than chances are its something that can be fixed.

    Can you get it working from a PC? Streaming to foobar or winamp or something. Usually the transcoding stuff breaks because mp3splt, i recall something about the -o option changing in newer versions. I'd look to the Ampache forums for more info.

    nope, pc streaming doesnt work either. tried the lame line also, didnt help.

    edit: should probably say I'm running vista32 and using WMP, it does work if I dont enable downsampling.

    any future plans for video support since ampache handles them?

    thanks again for this, having a blast.

    basically, the support is in the config file, you can check the wiki for it and it might help but its for an older version... but I had to download lame and change the path in the config file to where I had saved the lame program. I'm gonna work on getting format changing next and will try and post directions both here and in the ampachpre forum. But I am at work without access to my files right now.

    Has anyone experienced fast battery drain after installing this app? For some reason my Pre is experiencing constant EVDO activity (and fast battery drain) since I loaded the app, even when the app isn't running. I unloaded the app, but still have the problem. Anyone else experiencing this behavior on their phone? Thanks.

    Here's a how to for the transcoding

    First download the actual transcoding programs:
    lame : Download LAME MP3 Encoder 4.0 Alpha 14 / 3.98.2 - The best mp3 encoder is available for free - Softpedia
    faad : Download FAAD 2 Binaries for Win32 - An AAC/MP4 command line audio decoder for Win32 - Softpedia
    unzip both into the same directory ( I put them in C:\audio\ )

    Now go to your ampache-3.5.1/config directory and find the file ampache.cfg.php
    This is the file you want to edit, any text editor will do such as notepad ( I used notepad ++, very nice program for editing code)

    first, if you want to downsample your mp3's find:
    Code:
    ; Downsample Remote
    ; If this is set to true and access control is on any users who are not
    ; coming from a defined 'network' ACL will be automatically downsampled
    ; regardless of their preferences. Requires access_control to be enabled
    ; DEFAULT: false
    downsample_remote = "true"
    take out the ; from the last line and change "false" to "true"

    Next:
    Code:
    ;######################################################
    ; These are commands used to transcode non-streaming
    ; formats to the target file type for streaming. 
    ; This can be useful in re-encoding file types that don't stream
    ; very well, or if your player doesn't support some file types. 
    ; This is also the string used when 'downsampling' is selected
    ; as some people have complained its not bloody obvious, any programs
    ; referenced in the downsample commands must be installed manually and in
    ; the web server path, and executable by the web server
    ; REQUIRED variables
    ; transcode_TYPE	= true/false ## True to force transcode regardless of prefs
    ; transcode_TYPE_target	= TARGET_FILE_TYPE
    ; transcode_cmd_TYPE	= TRANSCODE_COMMAND
    ; %FILE%	= filename
    ; %OFFSET%	= offset
    ; %SAMPLE%	= sample rate
    ; %EOF%		= end of file in min.sec
    
    ; List of filetypes to transcode
    transcode_m4a 		= true
    transcode_m4a_target 	= mp3 
    ;transcode_flac 	= true
    transcode_flac_target	= mp3
    transcode_mp3  	= false
    transcode_mp3_target	= mp3
    ;transcode_ogg 		= false
    transcode_ogg_target	= ogg
    
    ; These are the commands that will be run to transcode the file
    transcode_cmd_flac 	= "flac -dc %FILE% | lame -b %SAMPLE% -S - - "
    transcode_cmd_m4a 	= "C:\audio\faad -f 2 -w %FILE% | C:\audio\lame -r -x -b %SAMPLE% -S - -"
    ;
    
    ;transcode_cmd_mp3	= "mp3splt -qnf %FILE% %OFFSET% %EOF% -o - | lame --mp3input -q 3 -b %SAMPLE% -S - -"
    transcode_cmd_ogg   	= "oggsplt -qn %FILE% %OFFSET% %EOF% -o - | oggdec -Q -o - - | lame -S -q 3 -b %SAMPLE% -S - -"
    
    ; Alternative command works better for some people
    ;transcode_cmd_m4a       =  "alac %FILE% | lame -h -b %SAMPLE% -S - -"
    ;transcode_cmd_ogg   	= "mp3splt -qn %FILE% %OFFSET% %EOF% -o - | oggdec -Q -o - - | lame -S -q 3 -b %SAMPLE% -S - -"
    ;transcode_cmd_flac	= "flac -dc %FILE% | lame -rb %SAMPLE% -S - -"
    
    ; This line seems to work better for windows, switch if needed
    transcode_cmd_mp3	= "C:\audio\lame -q 3 -b %SAMPLE% -S %FILE% - -"
    changes are in red
    be sure to take out the ; before the last line

    Now we just add another ACL in the ampache interface....
    log in with and administrator account (probably your normal account)
    in the menu area click on the little computer-like icon and select 'add ACL'
    name it ... (whatever you want here)
    level: all
    User: all
    ACL type: Local Network Definition
    Remote Key: (leave empty)
    Start: 10.0.0.0 End: 10.255.255.255
    then click on add ACL

    Lastly, we select the bitrate to downsample to:
    go to 'streaming' under 'server config'
    type of playback: stream
    rate limit: 8192 (this was default so I left it alone)
    transcode bitrate: 96 (or whatever you want to downsample to)
    transcoding: always
    then update

    you are done and should be able to play m4a files and downsample mp3's!!!

    I know it is not because of the slower 1x speed because with the same roaming signal strength AmpachePre will play the song while roaming with the same 1x speed and signal strength.

    Is there any way to get this to work while roaming?
    I know I don't want to do a lot of streaming while roaming or Sprint might have a cow and I will get a $500 bill but would like to have this working.

    Thanks
    Anyone else have any trouble connecting while roaming? I can connect while not roaming but each time I roam I get a "the audio player encountered an error message". I don't know if it times out or something because it takes longer to buffer etc..

    I think the phone has a mode to enable roaming data. Can you use the internet while roaming?

    Also the Audio Stream received error indicates that an attempt was made to play the file and WebOS sent the app an error saying it couldn't be played.

    ED: I also think that steaming data will cost you where voice likely won't. You'd have to read the fine print.

    yes you can use the internet while roaming, but you have to enable it in the settings, I believe the default is set to no. But on the bright side, if you have unlimited data, data roaming will not cost extra as far as i know. there have been post about it before and responses from sprint employees....

    edit: oh and I was able to get a stream while in roam-only mode... it took a very long time to start as it was only a 1x connection....

    The same song I can play while not roaming but as soon as i put it in Voice "Roam only" it will not play.

    There is a option on the phone to alow data roaming which I have enabled and can stream the music.

    But..

    When I use the voice "roam only" tweak it will not stream any songs. But it will play with ampachePre.
