My music collection consists of uncompressed flac files. Before I move head with Emby I need to know if I play a flac file to the mobile app over tower using my data will the file be transcoded to an mp3 file, and downgraded so I do not kill my data? I looked in the settings of the app, and I do not see a setting to set Music Quality to tell it to stream at a certain bit rate. I see it for movies, but not for music.


Also, I seen someone mention about the app cashing the music file while listening to the app, I see the web client already does this, it would be great if the app did this as well. iBroadcast does this, it will cache the song while playing, and then cache the next song after it, its a really nice feature to implement if possible?

Hi @sdguy2150, we currently do not have a separate setting for music quality, but we will add this for the next release of the app, thanks !
