Please fix ASAP! silan cuein - cueout
  • Once files are run through silan, the cuein cueout values get entirely borked. It doesn't happen on every song, mind you, but it happens on a lot of them. The only fix is to edit the metadata, which on a library of 7k+ songs is extremely time consuming. Either silan is far to aggressive or it's utterly broken.

    I've checked the cc_files table and the correct track length is there, but the cuein - cueout often cuts the song in half (or more). This absolutely needs fixed since our library is in horrible shape.

  • Thx John - I got the exact info I needed here:

  • Have you put the

    default fade in, default fade out , and default crossfade to 0

    in the system pereference
    • put a "0" do not delete the information and leave it blank which is to tell it to use the default which is 0.2 seconds
    • Then restart your system to have effect( I cannot  understand why this change and the replay gain only  takes place when you restart the whole system and not just by restarting the liquidsoap)
    While this may be obvious I have seen where it seems to help others like this post

  • Do i change those settings then reimport all the tracks? Or do they magically get fixed?
  • I reimported anyway. Crossing my fingers this works. Thanks...
  • This is still happening. I'm of the mind it's a silan/14.04 Ubuntu issue, since it used to work fine.
  • You Are gonna have big  and endless problem with 14.04

  • I have it running on 14.04 a tiny ARM box at that.
    I just had to update a few packages. Silan is one of them.

  • So far, all my problems with 14.04 have been solved, minus this silan stuff.

    John, i took your advice and updated silan to 3.2.2-2 from 3.2.2-1. We shall see if that fixes it.

    Hi Jason,

    This sounds like bug https://github.com/x42/silan/issues/3 which only affects recent distros using libavcodec54 as far as we know. Fixed packages are now available from our apt server, please give them a shot:

    https://forum.sourcefabric.org/discussion/17273/bugfix-silan-packages-for-ubuntu-14-04-lts-039trusty039-now-available

    Cheers!

    Daniel
  • Daniel, thank you for updated packages!
    tried to update with that command:
    apt-get install --reinstall silan=0.3.2~trusty~sfo-1
    now all looks good and problem with wrong track length have gone
    # dpkg -s silan | grep Version
    Version: 0.3.2~trusty~sfo-1


  • The big question now is how to refresh the fade out times for songs. Any idea on how to do that without re-importing?

    EDIT: Looks like the easiest way is to just dump all the content for future shows and rebuild it. So far, no que out problems after 2 hours of audio.

  • Specifically, what do I have to do to upgrade Silan on Ubuntu 14.04 ?

    I use PuTTy, can log in as root. Can anyone instruct me on what I type/enter to get this done?

    Any help much appreciated.

  • I am running Libretime (a fork of open source Airtimepro) on some servers. It is not without it's problems but has some cool extra stuff.
