Playback/Random stops playback
Hi, I'm a brand new Foobar user, so please forgive the rudimentary nature of this question -- and also please forgive any violation of protocol.  I'm trying to move away from iTunes, for various reasons, and Foobar looked like it was worth exploring as an alternative.

So I just did the download, everything looked fine -- and I discovered that I could access most of the music files already on my computer.  I started up a tune, everything sounded fine -- and then as I was exploring some of the toolbar options and accidentally clicked the Playback/Random opttion (arrow + ?), the music came to a sudden halt.  When tried to get it started again, I discovered that the check option for Playback was stuck on STOP -- and nothing that I can do will un-stick it.  I would assume that I should be able to select PAUSE, PLAY or whatever and the check mark would move to that box, but nothing moves it from STOP. 

I've done a "reset," I've exited and restarted Foobar and I've even turned off and restarted the computer.  All to no effect.  At this point, I'm a little discouraged.  This is not "user-friendly" behaviour.

Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong -- or what's going on?

Thanks...

I have a similar problem.  Downloaded v1.1.18.  Identified library.  When I try to play a track, the status bar quickly flashes Plyback started then changes to playback stopped.  Troubleshooter says all components are OK.

Help would be appreciated!

Never mind.  I see you have to add the album or track to the current playlist.
