Foobar spluttering, while browsing, with chrome or firefox v1.1.11
Hi there,
I've found Foobar 1.1.11 will splutter as I change tabs or scroll in chrome of firefox.
Its a choppy sound, if won't playback normally.

I've gone back to 1.1.10 and theres no problems.

Skips and stutters should first be investigated with the dpc latency checker.

I've got the similar experience - some stutters when for example browsing internet on Chrome or Firefox.
I use Win 7 Pro 64 bit
Latest Foobar version 1.1.11 I with the most standard components (nothing exotic)
Full file buffering: ON (300000kb)
Output buffer length: 500ms
dpc latency checker gets very occasional and not very high spikes, but stutters do not occur on J.River Media Center 17 at all.

Artmindes, people want to provide assistance, but can not if you do not take enough effort to provide information as per the Sticky for this forum.

My foobar2000 runs flawlessly on an old XP low ram machine. Uses a couple percent of my CPU and 10k memory. Yet, I can make my system choke with a Foobar2000 taking 90%+ of my CPU and large chunks of my memory with a heavily modified configuration loaded with visualizations and specific 3rd party components.

Without specifics regarding your configuration effort in providing help is pointless and a waste of time. At the very least, you can provide your configuration components with a simple copy / paste into a CODEBOX

Is this a config you have put together or a skin from someone else.
At the very least you have at least one component that Hacks foobar2000 in ways that violate it's license. Run the troubleshooting and see what comes up. There is no reason for foobar2000 to not play smoothly.

EDIT: The simplest way to troubleshoot this yourself is to systematically remove components until operation is working correctly. If you do not want to delete the components you can go the the user-components directory and just prepend xx to the individual components name and it will not load upon reload of Foobar2000.

This is configuration copied from my Foobar.
I've done the test, but unfortunately it does not tell me which exactly component violates foobar2000 license.
I'll try to do with thing with renaming or removing component. Hopefully it will help.

Thank you for your advice!

I'm pretty sure my components are stock, no custom ones.
Its only happened recently, within the last 2 weeks, I'm wondering if its a flash update or something else I have installed, hmmmm.
Foobar works fine on my wifes PC running XP.

Hacks
And the forum software has already renamed the offending plugin in your post, in one way.

Remove foo_clownware (foo_clownware), disable full file buffering, increase playback buffer to a few seconds. If you really need to load audio fully into RAM, say to avoid disk access on a laptop or similar, try foo_ramdisk instead of full file buffering. Also try to fall back to DirectSound output, if you are using WASAPI or ASIO right now.

The DPC latency checker posted before might also help.
It's only audiophile if it's inconvenient.
