Hi Dan & Chris,


I discovered that MP3 files will not play back on the v2.7.1 image; I get static out the speakers.  Audio in MP4 files work fine, though.  I am using a USB sound adapter.


In FP v2.6 (and the v2.6 to v2.7 upgrade), Chris told me that the following commands would fix MP4 and MP3 playback.  They did; both MP3 and MP4 files play fine after entering the below commands. 



sudo cp /usr/bin/omxplayer.bin /usr/bin/omxplayer.bin.fpp
sudo apt-get -y install omxplayer
sudo cp /usr/bin/omxplayer.bin.fpp /usr/bin/omxplayer.bin


But in the v2.7.1 image (I imaged the SD card), only MP4 playback works for video and audio.  MP3 playback only has static.  The above commands did not fix the problem under v2.7.1.


My OMXPlayer Audio Output in FP settings is set to ALSA.


Any idea what could be wrong?


Thank you,
Tom

omxplayer is not used for MP3 playback, it is only used for MP4.  MP3 in v1.x and prior used mpg123 for decoding MP3 files.  FPP v2.x and beyond uses an internal decoder that Dan wrote which uses libav* for decoding, so I will have to defer to him on whether there are any known issues with that.  Are you using the onboard audio on this system or a USB soundcard?

Hi Chris,


Yes, if you can let Dan know, that would be great.  I am using a USB soundcard for the dual sound outputs.  The USB soundcard worked fine in FP v1.x.


This is the soundcard that I am using:

Thank you for helping!
Tom

Is there a full list of the new MQTT implementations? I found the list at https://github.com/FalconChristmas/fpp/issues/505 but am having trouble implementing them.

EDIT: I solved my playlist control problem.. I missed the part where "/set/" was added before the playlist. Correct/working topic is "FPP/falcon/player/FPP-1/set/playlist/{PLAYLISTNAME}/start" and "FPP/falcon/player/FPP-1/set/playlist/ALLPLAYLISTS/stop/now".

EDIT: I solved my event control problem as well! Helps if I put the 01_13 for the event instead of 1_13!

Can someone confirm if this is the correct/current way to trigger events from MQTT? It works but I'm not sure if it is depreciated or not.

Thank you to all the developers for all the work that goes into FPP!

Thanks!

EDIT:
I found the documentation and I WAS doing something wrong! https://github.com/FalconChristmas/fpp/commit/2c4b05dccb0a1fa896f835a93252ee2a84349ffc
