I'll try this with my new ASROCK Beebox (latest Openelec / and later with W7 or so to cover Intel)...
I will share my results...Nod

Hi A-Swiss,

thanks for your help Smile, any luck?

Hi there,
This topic seems to be kind of dead with not getting somebody with programming skill interested enough. It is frustrating that Kodi can already play .dfs/.dff files but not scan them to the library. This does not feel like a huge step to take. Unfortunately I am a biochemist with no coding skills and thus must rely on some helpful soul to do this work. But please correct me if I am wrong and somebody has already taken on this job or will do so eventually. Hope dies last.

Cheers,
Jonas

i already added this, i offered the work to upstream. it got stopped by somebody protesting the 'music' in the class name when it can also be used for videos, even though there are no separate tag readers for videos.

i will NOT make another attempt. i refuse to deal with such nonsense.


RE: SACD/DSDIFF playback in XBMC - sloth - 2015-10-12

So this is really a formality? Is there anything I can do to support this getting added?


RE: SACD/DSDIFF playback in XBMC - ironic_monkey - 2015-10-12

ask upstream. relevant commits; https://github.com/notspiff/kodi-cmake/commit/065811a066cb6d65fa4423e7d457324acb01e70c and https://github.com/notspiff/kodi-cmake/commit/d7afe62b6e8ffe174977a3b3c340dbcb9e7e5dd2


RE: SACD/DSDIFF playback in XBMC - sloth - 2015-10-12

Sorry for my ignorance and just to be sure: the commits represent the work that - when integrated into Kodi - would allow SACD tag reading? How do I ask upstream?


RE: SACD/DSDIFF playback in XBMC - ironic_monkey - 2015-10-12

no, not SACD, DSF tags.

SACD requires more stuff, i have done that as well but i never tried to take that upstream as it's too much WIP. in particular, since there is no DST support in ffmpeg i have to decode in the input layer and this creates all sorts of issues. code is at https://github.com/notspiff/vfs.sacd for reference.


RE: SACD/DSDIFF playback in XBMC - sloth - 2015-10-12

Ok, .dsf is actually what I am using anyway. And how do I contact upstream about adding this to the main fork?


RE: SACD/DSDIFF playback in XBMC - ironic_monkey - 2015-10-12

typically you open a pull request on github.


RE: SACD/DSDIFF playback in XBMC - sloth - 2015-10-12

Isn't that something the author does (and I assume you have already done that)?


RE: SACD/DSDIFF playback in XBMC - ironic_monkey - 2015-10-12

i tried. since it's not fair that you guys should suffer, i have opened a retry. track progress here https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/8212


RE: SACD/DSDIFF playback in XBMC - sloth - 2015-10-12

Thanks. Sounds like there were some personal issues involved. This should not get in the way of making Kodi a better software. I will sign up at GitHub to post my support for this via comments (I guess that is the way to do it, right?) and would encourage anybody else waiting for this feature to do the same.

Cheers,
Jonas

+1 on github is frowned upon. please refrain from that. post here instead.
