* <code>preferred-format</code>
+
preferred-format
  
Controls the preferred data format to be sent to the device. Valid values are: FLAC, LPCM and WAV. If the preferred format cannot be used (not supported by the device, or the requested bitdepth/channels are not supported), other formats will be attempted.
+
Controls the preferred data format to be sent to the device. Valid values are: FLAC, LPCM and WAV. Note that WAV format doesn't support infinite length content without hacks and should be used only if there are no better alternatives; playback may stop abnormally after a few hours of playback due to this.

* <code>forced-format</code>
+
 
+
If set, allows only one format to be streamed; an error message will be shown if the format is not compatible with the device - or with the requested sample rate / bit depth / channels combination.

+
* <code>supports-FLAC</code>
+
  
 
Set to 'false' to disable sending FLAC to this device, even if the device claims to support it. Some devices claim to support FLAC but fail to play a FLAC live stream or have other bugs affecting FLAC playback.
 
Set to 'false' to disable sending FLAC to this device, even if the device claims to support it. Some devices claim to support FLAC but fail to play a FLAC live stream or have other bugs affecting FLAC playback.
  
Note that you can only prevent FLAC from being sent, this setting will not cause FLAC to be sent to a device that doesn't claim to support it.

supports-WAV

* <code>supports-WAV</code>
+
  
 
Set to 'false' to disable sending WAV to this device, even if the device claims to support it. Some devices claim to support WAV but have bugs affecting WAV playback.
 
Set to 'false' to disable sending WAV to this device, even if the device claims to support it. Some devices claim to support WAV but have bugs affecting WAV playback.

* <code>supports-LPCM</code>

Set to 'false' to disable sending LPCM to this device, even if the device claims to support it. Some devices claim to support LPCM but have bugs affecting LPCM playback.
 
Set to 'false' to disable sending LPCM to this device, even if the device claims to support it. Some devices claim to support LPCM but have bugs affecting LPCM playback.

supports-pause
 
+
* <code>supports-pause</code>
+
  
 
Set to 'false' to work around bugs related to pausing playback; a stop command will be sent to the device instead of pause.

* <code>zero-length-WAV</code>
+
zero-length-WAV
  
 
Some devices treat WAV files with zero length in headers as unknown-length and read them indefinitely, which is desired in this case. However this a hack and can't be used with every device out there. Known to work with Linn devices.

send-accept-ranges
  
 
Some devices dislike "accept-ranges: none" HTTP header, set this to 'false' to suppress this.
