It looks like this addon was included in the Libreelec Leia 0508 (and newer ?) builds. Am I right ?
 Hi blueribb,

I can happily report that the addon compiles successfully (only on Linux so far) for Leia and playback of SACD ISOs works:

With a bit of luck and a minimum of user demand, we might see it come to LibreELEC before christmas   Wink
That's great news !
I have (2) Intel i5 NUC's running Libreelec 8.2.5 (Kodi 17.6 Krypton). Will this addon require Kodi's Leia build ?

 Hello again,

despite spending hours on trying to compile and make it run for Krypton, I failed  No .
So yes you have to dance with the princess  Cool, if you want to spin the ISO extract of a Super Audio-CD.


As for seeing this plugin on LibreELEC, I am also looking forward to it use it on my Raspberry Pi Nod
After managing to extract SACDs via Raspbian, and not being able to output the DSD files via HDMI, I had one of a kind of shock and awe moment Love, when I switched to LibreELEC: 

 
Crystal clear multichannel sound via HDMI from a 30$ device.

I can confirm this works in CoreElec, too. However, only local files are found. Anything that is an SMB or NFS share doesn't show the files. Does anyone have the knowledge to correct this? @ironic_monkey 's account seems to be closed.

The next step would be to access the tags stored in .xml format which are generated by Maxim's parser. Here's an example: https://pastebin.com/VDJ8P8jK

@DaveBlake Is this something you would be able to do?

Thanks, and @notspiff as I see from the repository. He's got all his bases covered :-)
Edit: Not all files play, so at the moment WhatYouHearIsWhatYouGet. Better than nothing, of course!

Why do people use ISO for SACD? (Cant see any advantage vs DSF)

 We could comprehend the WHY, by asking WHO would do such an unheard of thing.


A. Mathematical NERDS, fanatics of the ideal sound who put accuracy above anything else. Their mass incarnation began, after the „accurate ripping of the CD-A“ was introduced.

B. Sonore CONSERVATIVES, lovers of the traditional sound who cherish their physical media and mistrust the lures of the IT-ether. They consider the new „streaming generation“ to be „online-junkies“ at best or „audio-vile hedonists“ at worst.

C. Unsung CAPITALISTS, buck savers who follow the siren of efficiency (in storage capacity) even in the age of the cheap terabytes.


As for ironic monkey = @spiff = notspiff, this revelation should be posted on page one, as it could ease the confused minds of those poor souls who have decided to read this thread from the very beginning.

Also, don't feed the trolls. That kind of comment is not made in the spirit of furthering this thread.
