08:30:33meehoocan anyone help me with a rockbox issue?
08:33:18meehooI've got a sansa clip plus rockboxed a few years ago. it freezes while launching. all i can see is a welcome rockbox logo frozen
08:33:35PaulFertsermeehoo: have you tried holding the button to load vendor firmware?
08:33:58meehoohow does one do that?
08:34:13speachy... other things −− what rb version is running (eg 3.15 release or dev build
08:34:16PaulFertsermeehoo: on my e200 I need to hold the left button before powering it on.
08:35:33meehoospeachy, I'm not sure but I guess I used RockboxUtility-v1.3.1 to install rockbox on my clip plus
08:36:36speachyit's proably the 3.15 release but I'd repeat the installation process using rbutil 1.4
08:36:40meehooPaulFertser, it does work with vendor firmware
08:36:44meehooso what? ;/
08:37:51meehooi cant reinstall newer version of rockbox when i connect my player to my pc because rockbox utility doesn't 'see' my player
08:38:11speachyboot into the vendor firmware, then rbutil will see it.
08:38:16PaulFertsermeehoo: when you have the bootloader installed you can just overwrite rockbox files using vendor firmware, no need to install anything.
08:38:46*PaulFertser never used rbutil , is it mandatory now?
08:39:03speachyno, but it greatly simplifies installation.
08:39:34speachyit's also possible the older rbutil doesn't know how to install newer bootloader versions. just a guess on my part.
08:39:47meehoonow please instruct me on how to do this
08:40:05speachythere's nothing I can add that isn't in the rockbox manual
08:43:05meehooi've downloaded rockboxutility 1.4.1. you're saying it will recognise my player while launched with vendor firmware?
08:43:42PaulFertserI remember having used some special utility to install the bootloader but was fairly straightforward. And it wasn't required to install rockbox itself.
08:44:55meehoowhat utility?
08:45:50PaulFertsermeehoo: really, everything there's in the official manual.
08:46:06meehoook, then i'll look at the manual
08:46:14meehoothank you
08:49:14PaulFertsermeehoo: I just used sansapatcher to deal with the bootloader, I could never understand what rbutil adds to that.
08:49:53meehoothere's hope... rockboxutility found my device but in mtp mode
08:50:05speachyPaulFertser: a gui that doesn't require cmdline fiddling, and doing everything else automagically. :)
08:50:09meehoowill I find in the manual how to change it to msc mode?
08:50:57PaulFertserspeachy: that sounds actually scary rather than comforting :)
08:51:14PaulFertsermeehoo: in the official sansa manual I guess
08:51:29PaulFertsermeehoo: or just wander through the menus randomly till you find it
08:52:11meehooyou mean the menus in the player itself?
08:52:41meehoohave just learnt that there's no mtp mode with rockbox installed
08:53:02meehoobut I launched my player with vendor firmware
08:54:42PaulFertsermeehoo: yes
09:01:33meehooPaulFertser, I changed to msc, but when I try to install rockbox i must browse for bootloader file
09:01:46meehoois it downloadable from the rockbox site?
09:04:01speachyno, you have to get that from sandisk.
09:06:05meehoooh yes, my clip plus works again !

14:44:00sporkm4b works on my fiio m3k
14:44:11sporkchapters will not work, mp4 headers can be a mess
14:44:33devmr01maybe that it, il try to convert it
14:44:49sporkwhich file are you trying to play ?

14:51:21devmr01also i noticed 2 strange things on my x3ii with rockbox
14:52:11devmr011 when i charge it on a usb phone charger, rockbox eters in data connection
14:52:15speachylebellium: I'll check to see what went wrong with the themesite update
14:53:00devmr012 it charges very slowly, like 10%/hour
14:53:18speachydevmr01: some particularly large mp4 (==m4b) files fail to parse properly
14:53:44devmr01its 180mb but 6 hours long
14:53:54speachywe literally run out of RAM. this is most evident on RAM-limited targets, including the x3ii.
14:54:11speachy(their hosted nature means we have a lot less to play with than would otherwise be expected)
14:54:33speachydevmr01: I personally just work around that by coverting the m4b to mp3.
14:56:13devmr01doing that now

15:07:16_bilgusdevmr it could likely be the charger depending on the method it uses to se charge current
15:07:40***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
15:07:50_bilguslike the old <= 1A ones used nothing or just pullups on the data lines
15:08:18devmr01its an old galaxy 5 charger
15:08:41devmr012.8a or something
15:08:46_bilguswas gonna say samsung as an example of someone who led the charger stuff
15:08:59_bilgustry something older like 1A or <
15:09:37_bilgusthos smartphones were playing with their own rules prior to usb C
15:10:21_bilgusnook even went as far as having a dal connector IIRC
15:13:39devmr01i thin i need something better than vlc to convert

15:24:40_bilguswhy not cbr?
15:25:38_bilgusor opus or flac even
15:26:08devmr01lol the source seems to be 32kbps...
15:26:16devmr01its an audiobook
15:26:43devmr01i just need to understand it it packs 6h+ in less then 200Mb
15:35:20devmr01off toic rant: i must be the only person on this planet that likes to listen to audiobooks while running and finds smartphones to bulky
15:36:43devmr01i "invested" in the x3ii for that, but not just
15:37:38devmr01i think il will end up buying some old small form factor android phone
15:52:25devmr01it works if i convert to ogg
16:04:46paulcarroty@devmr01, use opus, way better than vorbis/mp3/aac
16:11:06paulcarrotyas encoder the best is probably ffmpeg, don't forget about `-application voip`
16:12:03devmr01is there any other way to increas playback speed other than pitch?
