Heres my version of the WavPack codec for the 2.0.34 (or higher) firmware.
Please run the sonata application at least once before making these changes (the sonata application makes a number of files the first time it is ever run).
This codec has certain known limitations:
* It will not accept WavPack files from before version 4.0.
* It does not handle WavPack "correction" files
24-bit output is not supported by the PhotoBridge. However the codec does dither 24-bit input and produces 16-bit output. This is not a lossless procedure of course.
Two possible ways of installing this, the easy way (just click on an icon to install) or the techie way (using telnet etc.).
Download the following package
http://members.upc.ie/p.mc.quillan/WAVP ... 4_fw36.zip
Unzip the contents on your computer (keep the directory structure).
Create a directory (lets say codecs) on a compact flash card or network share and copy the contents of the zip file into this directory.
You should be then ready to install - an icon should be on the desktop (in the share or compact flash card where you installed the files) - the application will be called
Click on this.
You should now be able to play your WavPack files!
Important Note This install script does not copy the codec into the internal memory of the PhotoBridge - the codec is stored in the directory you created on the compact flash card (or network share).. If the PhotoBridge cannot see the codec (say you've removed the compact flash card that you stored the codec on) then you can't play your WavPack files.
More details in the readme file enclosed in the zip file.
Add the following line
to the end of the file
After extracting from the zip file, copy the file
to the directory
Note I would suggest that you store the WavPack codec (as well as any other third party codecs) in a shared folder or on a compact flash card and put a symbolic link in the /etc/rokucascade/codecs directory linking to that particular codec file - this will keep space free in the internal storage area.
This should now mean that the sonata application will be able to see files ending in .wv (WavPack files) extension, and hopefully be able to play them!
Please treat this codec as a work-in-progress!
Let me know if you've any problems.
