Thanks shagrath for all your hard work.

PS3MS does a superb job with streaming videos but please can we audiophiles have some attention too.

I presently use PS3MS mostly streaming videos but this would change very much if the audio side could be improved. I would love to be able to pack away my high end CD player.

Please look into being able to stream audio in highest quality untouched as well as 96/24 playback.

It would be great to be able to play 96/24 FLAC files without downsampling one day. In fact, it's the only feature that is missing on PMS for me. Is there a chance for this happening in the near future?

Without searching it is logical you don't know that it is working months ago ;)

Play flac files under video category on PS3 ;)


@ ExSport:

I tried playing my FLAC files this way and it does not work; it just comes up with the No files found message. How do I get this working?

Using r409, in PMS.conf I have: audio_resample = false

+1

I also would love to play my complete lossless music collection (FLAC) in highest possible audio quality!

Thanks.

I had a look at the trunk code and it looks like TSMuxer is launching the player with higher quality flac files and I found a bug report that mentions it too.

To answer my own question: I think this feature will only work when the PS3 is connected with HDMI to the amp/prepro. Since my PS3 is connected with an Optical out cable this won't work for me.

Could be, I don't know what's causing that. In my current Optical out setup I guess it's just not supposed to work: to test this I changed the audio output settings on my PS3 from Optical out to HDMI and several new choices and bitrates appeared!

I too would like to play my files as i rip all of my CD's to FLAC.

I tried under the "video" tab, no such luck. I get the view of my music folder, the artist folder, the Album(s) folders and when I select one there is a #transcode# in there. when I select it it shows me the file names but when I select the song, it get the no files found error.

HELP!!!

I have some high quality 24-bit/96 KHz FLAC audio I would like to play. I tried to play these under the Video category with the high fidelity audio player; however, I keep getting the message "data type not supported." My PS3 is connected to an Onkyo A/V receiver via HDMI. The receiver supports up to 7.1 at 192 KHz LPCM input so I'm not sure why there is an issue... I also cannot manage to get ps3mediaserver to stream an mkv movie that is encoded with 6 channel FLAC through LPCM. This used to work with previous versions of ps3mediaserver; so, I'm wondering if there's an issue with the LPCM over HDMI from the PS3 to the receiver. Any input would greatly be appreciated. Thank you.
