Playing on Google Home: this format cannot be played on this device

I have a bunch of MP3s (file says: MPEG ADTS, layer III, v1, 192 kbps, 44.1 kHz, Stereo) which I can call up with the astiga integration for google home. I've concatenated 5 of these into a single mp3 file using mp3cat so that it could be played without the between-track title announcements that google forces, but for the combined file I get "this format cannot be played on this device". Any tips?


  • Hi retorquere,

    Did you use the same advanced settings for making it one .mp3. The output of mp3cat is probably different.

    Good luck!

  • Advanced settings in what sense? I just took the existing mp3's, and ran `mp3cat -o ../all.mp3 *.mp3`

  • Aha oke. What does the mp3cat file says about bitrate and codec? So can you compare it to the original files?
