Falcon F16v4: Invalid FSEQ file

Started by gamix, November 30, 2021, 09:08:54 PM

I am trying to upload my fseq files onto the F16v4 using Player mode. When uploading my fseq files, I keep getting the error "Invalid FSEQ file: [Filename] : Not a supported FSEQ format.

The fseq file works if I connect to the controller using xLights scheduler in E131 mode using the same fseq file. Do I have to do anything special to prepare the file to upload to the controller?

I have firmware v14 if it makes any difference. Thanks!

Not sure what your issue is, but I would try taking the apostrophe out of can't and give that a try.


Thanks for the suggestion. I tried removing the apostrophe and I still get the same error message. Just to be sure, I rename the file to "CANT.fseq" and still get the error.


In xLights, what format are you using to render the fseq file?


How do I determine that? I just use Batch Render to create the fseq files.


you should use fpp connect to upload the files from your computer to the controller.  When you do this the fseq files uploaded to the controller are compatible.

Otherwise you can change the fseq file type that xlights creates to be compatible, check the v4 controller manual to check which type you need to set xlights to.

Edit>Preferences>Sequences.  Try changing the default to V2 Uncompressed and see if that works.


Also having the same issue. Have tried all the above and it still gives me the same error, was really hoping to be able to use it standalone too. Does anyone else have any other suggestions?


I take that back. Preferences/Sequences did it. Thank you!


Hmmm ok 3rd post lucky. It uploads now, but won't show upon the file manager or anywhere :S any ideas very welcomed! thanks.


I would take a close look at the naming of the file and remember that linux is case sensitive so if you are using FSEQ  or Fseq instead of fseq, it will not put it in the sequence directory.  Also make sure that your file system has the space available for the sequence file.  If you neglected to expand the file system or if the expansion failed, you will not have much room for any uploads.


Try changing the default to V2 Uncompressed worked for me. Thanks!
