Muzecast doesn't seem to direct play 44,1Khz/16bit FLAC files, I was inspecting the cache folder and I found that they are getting transcoded instead of getting copied unmodified and played directly when cache is ON.

I wonder why?

My current environment for FLAC files is:

- "original" is selected in "WiFi Sound Quality".

- "FLAC 16 bit 48Khz" is selected in "FLAC support".

- "Force seekable flag" is turned OFF.

Is this a bug?

If ReplayGain is enabled, then files will be normalized in volume based on ReplayGain detected during scan. Transcoding in that case does not reduce any quality.

There are 2 types of ReplayGain:
1. Album
2. Track.

If Album ReplayGain is selected to be applied all the time, then each track will be normalized based on that track album average replaygain.
If Album ReplayGain is not selected, each track will be normalized based on it's own replay gain value.
If tracks are played in track order for an Album (gapless), the each track will be normalized based on album ReplayGain value.

To enable/disable ReplayGain: Muzecast Settings->Advanced->Disable Replay Gain
To set Album/Track Replay Gain: Muzecast Settings->Advanced->Use Album Replay Gain
Thank you.

In that case I'll have to wait until you fix ReplyGain to verify that, because as I said in my other topic, when ReplayGain is turned OFF songs are still normalized when cache is ON and empty.

I've got a question about this:

If I remove the ReplayGain information from the server and then add it manually to each song, will the songs be transcoded anyway or will they play directly since the id3 tag contains the required data?
