I use Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, I installed mpd and all the possible clients, I can not load the files to let them read, my music files are all on Nas, however I use Foobar on Windows to listen to my music and wv / dsd read them without problems, in the PC that I use routinely instead I have Ubuntu, fortunately I managed to restart Foobar and even if it is limited to Ubuntu now I can read the wv / dsd files even from Ubuntu ...... Too bad they are not supported by VLC , BeadBeef and Audacious which are my favorite players on Ubuntu ..... I apologize for my english too ....
Thank you

Lack of support from VLC/DeaDBeeF/Audacious would be due to using an outdated version of the WavPack library. And don't expect a newer version to be included with 18.04, either, since it's an LTS release, so it will feature freeze for the next two years. Unless maybe you install an updated WavPack from a PPA, and then you're on your own, and it will still only decode to 24 bit PCM instead of DSD.

The wavpack I have in my Ubuntu 18.04 LTS is version 5.1.0 which is the last version ......

You seem to have a configuration problem in MPD.
There does not seem to be a compatibility problem with wavpack-DSD (yet).
If you can not access your music library, there is probably something wrong with your 'mpd.conf' (mounts the file system, client-server access, permissions, etc.). In the worst case it can be an MPD bug when accessing the remote system.
I'm not a Linux expert... it would not be a good idea to do this query (MPD can not access NAS) in Ubuntuforums or Linuxquestions?

I have DFF files compressed in DST, as the dff does not allow me to use the tags I tried to compress them in wavpack but tells me that the file is already compressed and then stops, I wanted to know if there is a way to put these dff in a wv container so that I can tag them.
Thank you

You should decode DST to DFF first. You need DST decoder - http://cl.ly/0V2O062f3q1m Archive contains coder and decoder for Windows.
Decoder's file is  RefDstDecoder.exe in folder C043465e_Electronic_inserts\audio\lossless\mpeg4dst\RefDecoder\export\

How do I use the program? I clicked on RefDstDecoder.exe but it does not open, I see a window but it closes immediately ......

This is command line tool... Like wavpack.exe
Code: [Select]
RefDstDecoder.exe -i YourCompressedInputFile.dff -o DecompressedFile.dff
And be patient. It is VERY slow.

Excuse me but I can not understand yet how to do it, I put all the dff files in the same folder where there is RefDstDecoder.exe but as I click the window opens for a split second and closes, how should I do? a thing that I've never done and if you please explain step by step, by chance I could do it with Ubuntu using the terminal?
Thank you

Put RefDstDecoder.exe and attached bat file into folder with compressed dff files, run bat file, wait.

Thank you so much, now it seems that it works but it seems very slow, I think I will give up and I will transform these dff in pcm, there is not even a bar or numbers that make you realize where the encoding passes, there is only to wait. .....
Thanks again for your availability

Um. Of course it's slow. And converting them to PCM will not speed it up. You can, however, parallelize it so it's using one conversion per CPU core. The only reason foo_input_sacd is reasonably fast is because it uses multiple cores to execute the DST decompression, so a single file plays back fast enough, but multiple files won't play any faster.

In the end I converted them (it took a long time) and then I recompressed them in wavpack via terminal with Ubuntu and now everything is ok, dsd with tags .......

Although you have already solved the problem you can also unzip dst to dff natively in Linux with  dstcnv (https://github.com/ntaka777/dstcnv). Also on the command line, just as slow, but in this case it reports the progress and does not need Wine on Linux

The latest version of DeaDBeef works with wavpack-dsd!
Tested in Debian 10 (it was updated a few weeks ago) and the binaries already exist in the DeaDBeef page
http://deadbeef.sourceforge.net/download.html

Remenor, I had no idea DeadBeeF was out with a new version so thank you for letting me know!

Remenor, thanks for posting about this! I have updated by site with the new information...it's great to see more apps supporting the DSD mode.

One of my pending projects is to port the DSD code into FFmpeg, which should help even more.
