Upgrading MPD required for AAC stream format?

Postby cgchris99 » Wed Apr 19, 2017 7:22 am

While searching for my stream problem. It seems that MPD doesn't support AAC until > .14 The mightyohm kamikaze has mpd .13

Doing some research shows MPD 0.16 supports the following.
Supported decoders:

[mad] mp3 mp2
[vorbis] ogg oga
[oggflac] ogg oga
[flac] flac
[sndfile] wav aiff aif au snd paf iff svx sf voc w64 pvf xi htk caf sd2
[audiofile] wav au aiff aif
[faad] aac
[mpcdec] mpc
[wavpack] wv
[sidplay] sid mus str prg P00
[wildmidi] mid
[ffmpeg] 16sv 3g2 3gp 4xm 8svx aa3 aac ac3 afc aif aifc aiff al alaw amr anim apc ape asf atrac au aud avi avm2 avs bap bfi c93 cak cin cmv cpk daud dct divx dts dv dvd dxa eac3 film flac flc fli fll flx flv g726 gsm gxf iss m1v m2v m2t m2ts m4a m4b m4v mad mj2 mjpeg mjpg mka mkv mlp mm mmf mov mp+ mp1 mp2 mp3 mp4 mpc mpeg mpg mpga mpp mpu mve mvi mxf nc nsv nut nuv oga ogm ogv ogx oma ogg omg psp pva qcp qt r3d ra ram rl2 rm rmvb roq rpl rvc shn smk snd sol son spx str swf tgi tgq tgv thp ts tsp tta xa xvid uv uv2 vb vid vob voc vp6 vmd wav wma wmv wsaud wsvga wv wve


Any tips on how to upgrade the mpd?
And would this be a problem on the ASUS WL-520GU? Is there enough memory?

Doing my own research, it looks like the 4Meg Flash on the Asus WL-520GU is going to be a problem with upgrading the MPD to a much later version.

If I'm wrong and can upgrade, please let me know. Or should I just find another router for this project with more memory.

At this point I would definitely use a raspberry pi instead. The pi wasn't around yet when I did this project back in 2009!

Any recommendations on a Raspberry pi version. I don't want to make another mistake purchasing a product that will not do what I need. I don't know anything about the Raspberry pi models.

I don't think it's a given that a newer version of mpd can't be made to work on the router. That said, I have not tried compiling code for this router in several years, so I'm not sure what the current state of openwrt is. I suspect it would be a difficult project but might be doable with enough knowledge of linux and compiling openwrt from source.

But if you want to look at the Pi there are tons of guides online. I'm not an expert! Pretty much any Pi should be capable of streaming audio, though. You just have to find the right USB adapters to make it work (usb wifi and usb audio).
