Can I pay with XP points or gold from my favourite RPGs?

Three mobile platforms at the same time, this looks ambitious.

What is the difference between:

http://mobile.foobar2000.com/
and
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/197726...obar2000-mobile

Currencies and prices are different.

I find this quite funny, because I asked about this almost a year ago...!

I did too and received the same "Never!" answer. So what's changed?

1) Can someone clarify whether the Windows Tablet (Metro) version will support x86 devices only or ARM ones too?

2) Will the free version have ads? (Hope not!) How much will the "fully featured premium version" cost?

3) What will differentiate the "fully featured premium version" from the free one? Lack of ads (if any) and the addition of cloud, social and streaming? What if these 3 goals aren't met?

4) I suppose it is way too early to talk about the store, especially since that goal may never be reached? I want to (eventually) know which labels you've tied up with, what will be the formats supported (lossless?), DRM-free or not, cost per track/album and many more things.

Good question...the difference is that mobile.foobar2000.com is handled 100% by ourselves, this allows us to offer payment in the 3 main currencies and offer a Paypal payment method also (in my experience these are very important), Kickstarter fix on the currency of the creating country.

Good luck.

For the time being, some of us are enjoying MPDroid (with MPD, aMPD or mopidy).

1) I will need to clarify this with the other developers,

2) I hope not also, I push for the free version to be advert free. The cost has not been finalized, it will however be in the same league as similar offerings from competitors,

3) It would miss certain features of the paid version, again not finalized.

So basically there are two competing fundraisers? Which one are we supposed to choose? Aren't you basically dividing your chances of reaching your goal in half?

mu ha ha, I read:

foobar2000 was created to playback audio in its purest form, partnering with B&W, the P5 will ensure the finest of all playback from your portable player.


I think that people here are usually reluctant to use this kind of vocabulary

This isn't an April fool's joke from Peter, right.
But the statements about foobar2000 and the ear phones make me feel like one.

I would definitely like a Windows phone port though.

You do realise, if you people release a mobile version, it WILL be cracked, right?

Are the funding goals for iOS, Android and Windows Phone cumulative? 218000€ are denoted for Windows - does that mean that the money for iOS and android is already included in the sum?

I assume it would be a free version, otherwise it should be mentioned that it's not free.

Yes they are included in the sum.

You can choose any, if for example each fundraiser raised 50% of the first goal, we have the option of moving the funds from our fund to the kickstarter page, to ensure completion. There is effectively one first goal.

I mean no offense... but this looks a bit weird. I had to double check to make sure it's for real. For something that's aiming to raise over a million $ the presentation isn't very convincing.
And then two separate fundraising sites, both with the Kickstarter logo? Confusing at the very least.

not giving money for an iOS foobar, boo! arguably, foobar is the greatest thing since sliced bread. but it's windows, folks. and freeware. and now you want money for a yet to be developed *iOS* version?

edit: maybe i'm a bit greedy. i'd prefer an FOSS product, but I guess I'd give a few $$$ to a foobar android project, just because it's foobar. I'm not particularly convinced how the actual kickstarter is structured (again, since I don't want to pledge money towards iOS development).

Glad to see I'm not the only one not liking this.

Winamp sold because of the "too much" they tried to do.

It might be wiser to split the kickstarter for different platforms.
