Beta 12 is NOT open upon macOS10.12 Sierra. Beta 10 is working fine. Thanks for checking.

Sorry, new Xcode doesn't even support 10.12 target anymore, 10.13 is the lowest supported now.
Please stay on beta 10 for now.
I'll make a special end-of-life build for 10.12 later using old Mac + old Xcode.

It would be also really nice to have shortcuts for:
  • play/pause (space bar)
  • seek forward 5 seconds (right arrow key)
  • seek backward 5 seconds (left arrow key)

Thanks again and please keep your great work.

Hey. Thanks for your work, I love to use the new version (2.5b).
Are there any chance for this features? It would be great.
Thanks.

Shortcuts are possible, but on macOS they are configurable in the system preferences:

I tried to configure shortcuts for via system preferences but it didn't reflect on foobar ( stable and beta version). Any other tip that to make shortcuts work on foobar?

What did you try? Some key combinations are reserved for global system functionality. Unfortunately, not all invalid shortcuts are blocked from being created, they just don't work. And of course, the shortcuts you can create only work with macfoo having focus. Global shortcuts aren't possible as far as I know.

I configured shortcuts for Copy  and Paste on system preference. These shortcuts were updated on Foobar>Edit panel> , however in disabled state, in both Foobar stable and beta version.

Only shortcut that works is 'Select All' Foobar Beta version and 'Delete' in both versions.

I'm open for any tips to make this work.

You did it correctly. The problem is that copy/paste isn't implemented yet in mac foobar2000. This is why it's greyed out in the menu.

Hello,

I'm also really happy to see the Mac version of Foobar getting some love. I use it on Windows for many years but could never quite find a player which is as good on Mac, so seeing the major leap forward that version 2.5 is was amazing!

My post here is also just to second a request for a keyboard shortcuts section in Foobar's preferences. I'm blind and rely on the VoiceOver screen reader and use the computer exclusively from the keyboard. One of the most important things I need regular access to is keys to adjust Foobar's volume up and down, and currently the only way I can do that is manually navigate to the volume slider in the toolbar and adjust it which can be difficult if any loud audio is drowning out the speech. I can't add shortcuts for this using the Mac OS settings, because while I can get volume commands to show up if I Shift+Click the playback menu like on Windows adding shortcuts for "Up" and "Down" don't work. The same is true for seeking in the file and lastly the Mac OS settings don't accept the spacebar as a valid key for play/pause which I'd love to be able to do like the previous poster.

Down the road it would also be cool to have options for both global and local hotkeys like in Windows, where I had global keys for volume adjustment as well as combinations to change tracks that were easier to press than my keyboards media key combinations, but that can come later.

Finally, one small keyboard-related thing to report, it currently doesn't appear to be possible to start playback of an entry in the album list by pressing enter on it. This works in Windows but currently not on Mac. I can work around it by selecting "send to current playlist" from the context menu, but being able to press enter would be more convenient. :)

Is there any possibility that the macos version will get media conversion like windows version with native apple silicon binaries including codec binaries.

Got it! Thanks for clarification!

Waiting for shortcuts ( Copy, Paste, Play/Puase) on Foobar2000 Mac version. 🙏

Hi Peter, thanks for all you do for making a Mac version of foobar2000!

I recently upgraded to 2.5 beta 18 to see what was different over 2.3. I've run into some weird behavior....it cannot remember the position I last had it opened to.  For example, if I resized the window to see all of the information, and then close the program, when I reopen it, it will reset to a small screen on my main monitor.  Not sure if its a bug, or if its normal, but 2.3 never did that.  It would always remember I had it last opened on my secondary monitor and I didn't have to resize or touch it.  I have an M1 mac mini running Ventura.

Hi Peter!

Please add an option to change CoreAuidio's output format on the fly!
I was in love with foobar2000 on PC for decades, but then switched to mac and sadly found out my mac is piece of s without this feature...

Thanks
