i see codec makefiles, does this mean its capable of playing back mp3 and wavpack now? This looks really promising, can't wait to test a safe release.

That looks like it would also include Vorbis too  . Quite interesting.

Some latest progress:

Mp3 decoding at 104% realtime and FLAC decoding at 170%. Both at 120MHz.


NB: 170% for FLAC is for one file, not every... I imagine it's the same for mp3 so optimisation is still planned...

I quote Deadman from MR since i didn't visit Rockbox IRC channel recently:
Quote
BTW preglow is making great strides in MP3 decoding with 192K MP3 (Lame alt-preset standard) being decoded at 200% realtime.

The big problem at present is no real inroads seem to be made into coding an API for codecs to 'plugin' and output to the audio out. It's a major job apparently? Also the remote LCD needs major work since the interface of Rockbox needs to work on a smaller screensize.


Also to add i've tested the Rockbox version with single wave output and it work very well...
Cheers

that sounds about right.  as another data point, I just ported FLAC to the NSLU2 (was very easy because of [a href="http://www.nslu2-linux.org/]these guys[/url]) which is a 266 MHz XScale (ARM based), 133 bogomips, and decoding is about 6x realtime (with no asm optimizations).

(BTW the NSLU2 makes a great cheap (~$80) hackable audio server.  flac, vorbis, transcode, mt-daapd have also been ported, only thing left is slimserver).

A piece of news which will for sure interest many people at HA place:
The team (Rasher and Preglow specialy) is working on implementing libmuspack the MPC decoder to Rockbox code...

I imagine this won't let anyone uninterested...

Thats fantastic news, if iriver has support for mpc i see no reason to ever use mp3 again, UNLESS my iriver explodes and i have to by a new portable...

its also my understanding that mpc requires less cpu time to decode, somebody correct me if i'm wrong, it also has a great filesize to quality ratio  could replaygain ever be implemented in roxbox.. i dunno.. gapless woohaa

But we have to be patient!
Still no audio support even if it's probably nearly coming for mp3 since Linus is working on...

For a short view of the iRiverport status check this:

# Mpeg-audio  CVS code runs fairly efficiently, but there's still room for more optimisation. Capable of realtime operation.

# FLAC   Code with some optimizations in CVS. Capable of realtime operation.

# Remote   75% (buttons, low-level LCD driver done, but untested)

Linux suceed to make partial mp3 real playing support with sound (only 5 sec):

Thanks to Mooscamaro for relaying the info...


And congratulation to Linux of course!

Hi HA guys,
The rockbox iRiver iHP1xx port comes nearer... Real playback with gapless will be there quite soon... Here a quote of yesterday IRC log (thanks for Muesli to publicate this at MR place >>HERE<<!)
Quote
(16:19:24) (Slasheri) now doing a new test. there was some bugs present in the code
(16:28:44) (rasher) Slasheri: how did it go?
(16:29:00) (Slasheri) rasher: still one minor bug delaying the test
(16:29:05) (rasher) ah
(16:39:3 (Slasheri) minor bug found, problem was that in code there was =- and should be -=
(16:39:47) (preglow) ahhaha, nice
(16:39:51) (ashridah) rofl.
(16:39:52) (Slasheri) indeed
(16:41:49) (Slasheri) ashridah: aah, now it was 100% gapless switch =)
(16:41:57) (Slasheri) preglow, sorry
(16:41:57) (preglow) the test tone as well?
(16:42:00) (Slasheri) yes
(16:42:01) (Slasheri) very well
(16:42:03) (preglow) excellent
(16:42:05) (preglow) then you're good to go
(16:42:07) (Slasheri)
(16:45:11) (preglow) and you do gapless by just shaving the last frame of a song a bit?
(16:47:09) (Slasheri) with ogg files no raw pcm data is shaved out
(16:47:22) (Slasheri) but with mp3s that will be necessary

(16:48:20) (Slasheri) i already have some ideas how to do that with mp3's
Shagnar: (16:48:57) (preglow) ahh, then tremor does it for you
(16:49:04) (Slasheri) yep
(16:49:14) (preglow) how long until we'll see a patch again?
(16:49:44) (Slasheri) maybe a few more days. It would be too soon to release it today because there is still lot to do
(16:52:32) (Slasheri) now i could do some filebuffer optimizations so the same codecs will not be loaded to file buffer between every song. Only when codec changes, that loading would be necessary
(16:53:45) (Slasheri) currently the rockbox will also fully load the ram buffer, no matter even if it's necessary to cut the last song
(16:53:4 (preglow) codecs should be loaded when you load files into the file buffer
(16:53:5 (Slasheri) yes, i will do it to work that way
(16:54:0 (preglow) we'll need to branch out the iram copy in some way
(16:54:23) (preglow) so we can switch codecs without having to load them from disk
(16:55:41) (Slasheri) in my current implementation, all necessary codecs are loaded into filebuffer and when it's necessary to use a codec, it will be loaded to iram from that filebuffer instantly
(16:56:12) (Slasheri) the switch is gapless because there is audiobuffer also
(16:56:30) (Slasheri) and that won't limit how many different codecs can be in the buffer at a time
(16:58:22) (preglow) holy shit, vorbis is good at lower bitrates
(16:58:25) (preglow) it beats aac to a pulp
(16:58:44) (Slasheri) 7
Shagnar: und s beste:
Shagnar: (16:59:23) (preglow) i've encoded an album with avg bitrate 33kbps, and it sounds wonderful
(16:59:35) (preglow) i can hear it's encoded, sure, but quality is surprisingly good
(16:59:55) (ashridah) preglow: yeah, it does better quality at lower rates
(17:00:14) (ashridah) not quite as good as speex, depending on the job, but good for low-rate streaming
(17:00:15) (rasher) speaking of aac...
(17:00:20) (ashridah) (of music)
(17:00:33) (preglow) of course, but speex only does voice
(17:01:13) (ashridah) yes

Are they aware that Lame is storing the gapless data into the Info header?

I think they are. I asked Linus some time ago (on iriver.us board) if they would use this info for gapless mp3 playback and he said they will use it (or something similar )

Hi guys,
For some days a patch adding playback was released by Slashery... It' has been commited to CVS and it's currently available with the daily build...

The playback is for Ogg Vorbis and Mp3 only actually... To precise Vorbis is fully GAPLESS yet!!!
Lame mp3 isn't fully since it add a very short but still hearable gap... i imagine they work for correcting this issue...

Anyway the playback is highly a "first shot" not fully ergonomic (no seeking for exemple) and still somewhat buggy...

Nevertheless it's a great progress and it has to be know that the actual playback feature is not expérimental "hack": it's very probably to be the final multicodec architecture but still far for finalisation...


Best regards,
Tanguy
