    It is stated that version 2.1 -which I am using- supports ape and flac audio format but whenever I ask to play such files it does not play and does not give any hint on why it does not play. When I ask to play .mp3 it does.

    What an I missing?

    Thank for your support

    Thanks for using AudioStreamer.

    If you want to play something else than mp3 files, make sure you check the “Resample (transcode)” option in the “settings”:
    Resample (transcode) files to mp3-format.
    For resampling to work you need “ffmpeg.exe” and “lame.exe” in your root directory (same folder where ‘AudioStreamer.exe’ resides). The resampling will be performed in your specified bitrate.
    Due to legal reasons it’s not possible to include FFmpeg and Lame.

    You can download “ffmpeg.exe” here:
    You can download “lame.exe” here: bundle.php

    More info:

    If you uncheck this then AudioStreamer streams the file as it is. This will only work if your files are in mp3-format.



    To anyone else who tried following the instructions here and couldn’t get it to work: go follow “Transcoding to mp3” section in the “Installation Instructions” instead.

    Turns out that ffmpeg/lame binaries do not go into the same folder as AudioStreamer.exe in the current version. They go into this folder instead: ffmpeg and lame path
