2015-04-06Switch back to libcurlLars-Dominik Braun1-1/+1
Drops libwaitress. Adds the new dependency libcurl and drops gnutls. I wouldn’t say writing my own HTTP library was a mistake – it was not and the experience gained was worth it. Instead I have to acknowledge that libcurl is just better than my own implementation. Sure, it does a lot more than HTTP – one could call that bloat. Yet if you just want to get the job done™ reusing code is the way to go. See #512 and #513.
2014-04-12INSTALL: Add note about libav* configurationLars-Dominik Braun1-2/+6
2014-04-11Fix volume controlLars-Dominik Braun1-1/+1
Commit 8012d6cb4bb65a858105ef878c5b98d91b24e1cd was broken in several ways. Since auto-detection did not work correctly it was replaced by a user-editable variable. See #439.
2014-03-31Use libav/ffmpeg for audio decodingLars-Dominik Braun1-35/+1
libav 9.12 and ffmpeg 2.2 have been tested. Here’s why: My mp4 “parser” *cough* never was a mp4 parser in the sense that it actually understood the file format. Instead it grepped the input stream for “magic” strings (section identifiers). That alone should be sufficient to throw away the code and rewrite it. Additionally libfaad2 has not been updated for ages. I guess it was abandoned in favor of libav/ffmpeg. With libav/ffmpeg, which we support both as long as the API’s don’t diverge too much, pianobar gains fast and reliable AAC and MP3 decoding without bothering too much about the details. Most users will have it installed already. On my own machine libav consumes about 2/3 CPU time compared to the previous solution when playing AAC. Unfortunately memory usage doubled and my attempts to disable unused protocols/formats/codec failed due to libav’s API limitations. While cleaning up a small detail regarding the eventcmd API has changed too: Song duration and position are measured in seconds instead of milliseconds now. Since libav/ffmpeg keeps track of accurate timing the precision pianobar keeps track of can be reduced, while still being sufficient for most users.
