Cue shee and cyrillic
Is there any way to fix this? I tried different encodings, but without positive results.

Let me give more details. I have .cue with Cyrillic titles and filenames. Encoding is Windows-1251. On Russian WinXP everything's working fine, but on English Win7 foobar reads this file with the wrong encoding. Changing cue's encoding to UTF-8 or UTF-16 does not solve this problem (I just see other squiggles).

Foobar is the only program on my computers with such the problem.

Exacly, saw some people solved their problem with UTF-8 or 16, but not me :/

How are you doing the conversion to UTF-8?

Yes if you didn't forget to save it  Now open this .cue file in foobar2000, remove garbage and write correct info into it.

Rather than making people wade through an ad-laden file-sharing site, why didn’t you just post it here inside codebox tags

Well, I prefer to see the actual file so I can look at it in a hex editor, to verify encoding and make sure there's no hidden errors. I also use an ad blocker in my browser, so most of those file hosting sites are no problem to navigate. Nevertheless, we do have a couple of Uploads forums here where files can be attached.

Anyway, there are multiple errors in the syntax of this cue sheet, aside from the encoding problem.

  • Load the file in Notepad++. It should look like a mess in the TITLE, PERFORMER, and FILE lines.
  • Go to Encoding  > Character Set > Cyrillic > Windows-1252. Now you should see Russian text.
  • Fix the error in the disc TITLE. It shouldn't be blank. Maybe make it be 'test':
    Code: [Select]
    TITLE test
  • Fix the error in the track 10 TITLE. It has a double-quote in the middle of the double-quoted string. Change it to single quotes.
    Code: [Select]
    TITLE "Л.Бернстайн - Трехчастная сюита из мелодий к/ф 'Вестсайдская история'"
  • Fix the error in the track index points. They all say INDEX 00, without any INDEX 01. Make them all be INDEX 01.
  • Save As... and give it a new name, like Вайнштейн_3-corrected.cue. This file will still be Windows-1251 encoded.
  • Go to Encoding > Convert to UTF-8. Lower right corner should now say "ANSI as UTF-8". The BOM is required for foobar2000 to recognize the file as UTF-8 encoded, so don't choose the "without BOM" options.
  • Save.


If the .wav file named in the document exists, then foobar2000 should read the fixed cue sheet.

So, an encoding override option might be helpful, but I don't think there's a problem in fb2k here. The cue sheet had syntax errors, and there was apparent user error in the operation of Notepad++ to do the UTF-8 conversion.

In step 7, it's doesn't say "ANSI as UTF-8", but cue works though : ) Except one thing, last track is not working, length says "?", and total disc runtime is shorter by it. Here's the final look of sheet, everything looks ok, but still is not working as it should:

Code: [Select]

Also, one more question, in the top, FILE, extension is wav, but my file is in flac, I'm wondering why is that so?

EDIT
I just ranemad that field, putted .flac instead of wav and now everything works fine!!

Thanks a lot pal for your help, I learned a lot : )

In foobar2000, you will either get a dialog telling you what's wrong, or you can look in the console (it's under View) and see what it says there.

*eyeroll* Rip your own CDs, and these kinds of problems don't come up anywhere near as often.

Either the cue sheet was generated by the ripping software and then screwed up by hand, or the whole thing was authored by hand. Probably the former. Either way, at the time the cue sheet was created, the audio data was in a WAV file. At some point afterward, the WAV was converted to FLAC, but the cue sheet was not modified to match. Change it to match the actual file name you want the cue sheet to apply to.
