Description samuel_idm 2006-09-03 12:49:45 UTC
Version:           1.4.2 (using KDE KDE 3.5.4)
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages
OS:                Linux

I run Rockbox on an iriver h140 and can thus play .mpc files and other file formats. (These are supported by rockbox: http://www.rockbox.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/SoundCodecs#Current_status )

When configuring the h140 with the "generic media player" module in Amarok, I can not choose to copy .mcp-files directly to the media device ("die folgenden Formate werden direkt übertragen"). Since they are not in the list, Amarok wants to re-encode them. The same goes for .ape-files. Please add then to the list of directly transferable files, or add a custom field. 

Oh, and for filetypes that need re-encoding, an option to encode them to .ogg would be nice.

Thanks a lot.

Of cource, the nicest thing would be th epossibility to choose a "media player running rockbox". 
Comment 2 Martin Aumueller 2006-10-21 14:57:52 UTC
There is an option to choose ogg as a re-encoding target. However, ogg has to be within the list of file types to transfer directly.
