Hello! Sorry, I couldn’t find a topic for this, so I opened it. I have a lot of albums in flac+cue format. So 1 big flac file, and the track information in the cuesheet file. These don’t seem to be handled by the latest Volumio3. If I were to play from such a folder, it would only play the 1 complete flac. Is it the same for others? Is there a solution, or could it be required to handle cuesheet+flac type albums as well?
In principle, it should work, almost all current audio playback programs know it… why doesn’t Volumio? Anyway, it would be possible to cut it up, but my only problem is that I have more than 300 albums that are in this form. Is there any chance that Volumio can interpret the cuesheet files later?
Odd - I have not had this issue. Actually quite the opposite.
A number of .cue albums I was using previously, for years, on Oppo’s in-house smartphone app, showed up as single large (undivided) files, are suddenly individual tracks I can play via Volumio.
Now, if I click on an individual .cue track, it will usually play the first track on the album, not the one I click; however, if I click the 3-bullet-icon to right of the track, then click “play”, it’s worked every time.
I will try all options again, but I think the player just stops me trying. It won’t start music. Only the big flac file starts, which is the entire album.
I tried this at home this morning as well, with 4-5 albums. Volumio3 is the latest free version.
I can’t vouch for your slightly later version, but several .cue files I tried played fine today in 3.512.
Files on 8TB Samsung SATA QVO SSD (via USB enclosure and hub) —> RPi 3b+ —> USB DS-DAC-10R (KORG).
Some CUE files are still read normally, and they even play songs one by one, but navigation does not work normally. Half the album is played, you select the next track and it starts again from the first and only by switching immediately can you get to the desired one. Sometimes when selecting a song from the middle, Volumio freezes and you need to restart the entire player. This crap never worked properly.
I use Foobar2000. You can drag several cue files into the window. Depending on the settings it converts to the source location of each cue file. I also use the highest FLAC quality setting.
I does also ISO to FLAC, DSF with a plugin (just google for it).
If there are errors, look at the path in the cue file, it is a simple text file.
