I'd prefer #funkwhale with their modern UI, but as its still alpha it lacks some functions that are important to me like #transcoding.
That really is handy when it comes to saving mobile data. (Yeah...)
It was quite a mess tho to get flac > ogg transcoding to work with airsonic.
Airsonic isn't that pretty and less modern, but quite stable.
@maximpistos hi there :)
Funkwhale does support transcoding, though it's not configurable at the user level know (in the web app it's done invisibly from the user if you try to stream a file in a format not supported by your browser)
Funkwhale also support transcoding in the subsonic API, and should honor whatever format/bitrate your client requests.
Not saying that to make you switch or anything, esp. as you seem satisfied with yoir current setup, but I wanted to clarify 😃
Hey, thanks for stepping in! :)
I didn't specify that I'm rather looking for downsampling than transcoding, my bad.
It is not possible to do
"Transcoding/streaming with different bitrates"
Which seems related to downsampling, right?
@maximpistos oh, our documentation is outdated then, because we do support downsampling as well!
For instance, this download the source track:
And this download a downsampled version:
It should also work with Subsonic clients if your client support the feature (I know DSub does, at least) :)
@agateblue oh, great!
So I can cross of one personal blocker of my list:) Getting exited about switching!
If I may ask: how do you handle large music collections with in-place import when meta data/tags get updated?
@maximpistos well, on that front, the situation wasn't brilliant until recently, but I've merged a contribution a few weeks ago that implement support for updating tags when source files change.
Our documentation reflect this already (https://docs.funkwhale.audio/admin/importing-music.html#metadata-updates), but the change itself will be released in Funkwhale 0.21.1 (though you can try it by using the master or the develop branch).
