Another problem is that now there are two menu items both called Album List: one shows it in a separate window (naturally, I created a shortcut for it) and the other is responsible for the one living in the side bar. Now my shortcut only shows me the Album List in a separate window but does nothing to the one in the side bar (though it is shown in the corresponding menu item). I think that something should be done with this, though I’m not sure what exactly (renaming menu items probably? but how?).

The ability to change between playlist sidebar and album list. I use F2K "for ever" in windows and now it seems another program. Almost crippled.

Great upgrade the 2024-04-26. The album list does the work.

Now for DSD support.

Thanks so much for the latest update, having the library on the side is a game changer.

One major bug from my side is regular buffering/stuttering when playing FLAC files from my NAS (every minute or so). This issue only happens with foobar, the same files from the same NAS play fine on Cog and VLC. This was a known issue with VLC and they patched it relatively recently. Would be great to have this addressed.

Date column in the main window continues to forget its width. Not systematically, only from time to time, so I’m not sure what causes this. But sometimes I see, say, just two digits instead of four. And, alas, they are still proportional, not tabular.

Nailed it. Steps to reproduce:

—open the main window;
—adjust date column width to your liking;
—open search window (I mean media library search window, not the playlist search window; why these commands have different locations in the menu is beyond me, by the way);
—close it;
—close the main window;
—open it again;
—date column width is reduced.

And can you please add at least Properties command to the menu? Since I also use fb2k for tagging, I’m tired of opening this window by right-clicking, I’d rather use a (manually created) shortcut for this.

Column width bug, fixed for the next update, thanks for reporting.

Not sure what you mean two menu items, there's no menu item for showing the embedded Album List.
Ideally I'd like the "Album List" menu item to highlight the embedded Album List if present, cycling tabs if necessary, but I haven't gotten to implementing that yet.

I mean:

1. Library > Album List

and

2. View > Layout > Album List

Both items show my shortcut but it only works for the first one. Not that it really bothers me since I prefer to use ReFacets in any case and don't us the side bar at all. But it's a strange situation nonetheless.

Thanks a lot for today's update, these columns no longer make my eyes bleed. However, there's lots of other places where tabular figures would be appropriate, e.g. ReplayGain tab in Properties window, Album List, ReFacets, etc., etc. Wouldn't it be easier in fact just to use tabular figures throughout the whole app and just forget about this problem? After all, proportional figures only look good in continuous text and foobar2000 mostly consists of lists and columns...

My main wish is for the convert functions. However, I do believe getting the interface right should have priority.

It seems that file renaming became much slower in recent previews. @peter, can you please look into this?

Re: foobar2000 for Mac: bugs

Thanks a lot for all the work, @Peter. I use foobar for many hours every day and every time I install an update it feels like Christmas.

Some minor suggestions for your consideration:

1) When I save a Playlist, the default export filename is Untitled.m3u8. Could we change it to be the playlist's name? I sync a dozen playlists across 3 foobar2000 mac installations and an iPhone one, and this would save me typos and time.

1b) A complementary and even better solution would be to add an "Export Library" menu option so that I have to do O(1) work per source computer each time I do a sync. At the same this would let me version control my foobar settings and track stats, and it would make my sync-across-computers setup much simpler.

2) I would like to use the "Save playback statistics on each track", but I'm not using it because when it's on, I get distracted 62 seconds after a track starts playing when the foobar2000 dock icon jumps (and an Updating Files foobar popup opens). Is it possible to update track statistics invisibly to the user?

3) Have you considered adding an "Automatically check for new foobar2000 versions once a week" feature? I now regularly "miss" on new features for days or weeks because I forget to manually check.

Thanks!

Another bug:

If you try to rename some files that already have "correct" names (i.e. there is nothing to rename) and by mistake hit Run button instead of Cancel, foobar2000 invariably crashes. Or if you mistakenly hit Run again after files were succesfully renamed.

One more thing:

When you first invoke the Equalizer window after the launch of foobar2000, it appears with a significant delay. When you invoke it for the second or third time, it appears as fast as all other windows (Album List, ReFacets, etc.). But if you relaunch foobar2000 and invoke Equalizer again, you'll see the same delay.

First, thank you, Peter, for this app. It's so good already and better than just about all the apps I've tried (and boy I've tried so many). Using the preview and haven't seen any serious bugs. My main wishes are for UI stuff and quality of life issues.

1) I really need a way to increase the font size (playlist, panels). They're a tad too small for me and coupled with the tight line spacing it gets tiring. The UI needs room to breathe :)

2) A way to add tracks in one playlist to another. Seems odd that this isn't already possible. Only way to add tracks to playlist is from a search panel or a library browser.

3) Please either add shortcut keys for volume up/down or just add volume up/down to the playback menu so the user can assign shortcut keys via keyboard maestro or similar app.

In addition, it would be great if fb2k intercepted the volume keys on my keyboard and responded to them. I play music through a different device than the default output device (using exclusive mode) so the volume keys don't change fb2k's volume.

4) fb2k seems to keep an internal queue, which is not necessarily the same as the current playlist, but there doesn't seem to be a way to see this queue.

5) this is a major request: it'd be nice be able to open multiple playlists in separate tabs, each keeping its own cursor.

6) a small and simple improvement: when creating a playlist/autoplaylist from a search result, please auto-name the playlist with the query rather than "new playlist"

7) a suggestion for the Settings > Selection Viewers option: maybe make it more flexible as follows: if "prefer current selection" is chosen, show the currently playing track briefly for a few seconds when the playing track changes then revert back to current selection. Likewise, if "prefer currently playing track" is chosen, show the current selected track briefly as the selection changes then revert back to the currently playing track.

8 the time counter should change as you drag the scrubber so you know exactly where you'll be.

Thanks for reading.

Not sure if a bug or a limitation, but framerate in an Audio Unit plugin window is quite low, the animation isn't smooth.

I noticed this behaviour: if I filter in the album list the tree is correctly filtered according to the query. In the screenshot four tracks have been selected by the filter. I now would expect that double-clicking on "All Music (4)" would only transfer the tracks selected by the filter to the playlist. But what happens is that in addition all other tracks in the library are transferred to the playlist.

i wish sending to current/new playlist from refacets, creating autoplaylist will not drops current playback and does not start new one (i've did not checked but may be it drops queue too)!

I wish %last_modified% had msec precision for sorting purpose. I usually do a `touch *` after downloading / ripping an album so when I sort by date modified the tracks are listed in order, but this doesn't work if the precision is only to the second.

I wonder what’s new in today’s preview (release notes are missing). Don’t see any visible changes anyway.

Just downloaded Foobar after seeing it finally got component functionality. Here's a list I'm seeing of major things missing (feel free to educate me if these do exist):

1- Edit Metadata in playlist view. Available in the Windows version under Prefs > Display > Columns UI > Playlist View > Allow mouse activated inline editing. This is a huge one since it's essentially impossible to easily and quickly tag metadata otherwise.

2- Assign default keys to media control features. By default, every music player out there has the following keys mapped:
Play/pause: Space
Next track: Right arrow
Previous track: Left arrow

3- Additional built-in column options: Composer, Album Artist (Not Artist/Album), Sample Rate, Year, Comment

4- Repeat and Shuffle buttons on the main toolbar next to the other controls instead of just a drop down menu in the upper right

5- Changing font size for playlist. Available in the Windows version under Prefs > Display > Columns UI > Colors & Fonts

6- Playing icon doesn't clear itself if playing another song below it, it leaves "ghosts" of itself. Only way to remove them is to select that played track which clears it.

You can create custom columns yourself. Right click on a column header and select More...  Then add custom column, using formatting strings found here

https://wiki.hydrogenaud.io/index.php?title=Foobar2000:Title_Formatting_Reference

For example, add a column named "Quality" and use this pattern: %codec% %bitrate% %samplerate%

Yes I am aware of that and did that, but those columns are ID3 spec standard and should be included by default. That's what I was saying. It shouldn't have to be custom added.

"Automatically fill values …" and "Apply gain to file content …" have unnecessary spaces before ellipses (in all other cases there is no space before the ellipsis).

Just verified an album with AccurateRip and the log looks as follows:

Track 1: AccurateRip Verified Confidence 2, Pressing Offset -637 [ARv2 CRC EAF0B289]
Track 2: AccurateRip Verified Confidence 2, Pressing Offset -637 [ARv2 CRC 92184E63]
Track 3: AccurateRip Verified Confidence 2, Pressing Offset -637 [ARv2 CRC 8EE517E1]
Track 4: AccurateRip Verified Confidence 2, Pressing Offset -637 [ARv2 CRC 15F3022D]
Track 5: AccurateRip Verified Confidence 2, Pressing Offset -637 [ARv2 CRC 7178E285]
Track 6: AccurateRip Verified Confidence 2, Pressing Offset -637 [ARv2 CRC 6623FD61]
Track 7: AccurateRip Verified Confidence 2, Pressing Offset -637 [ARv2 CRC 20D3B2AB]
Track 8: AccurateRip Verified Confidence 2, Pressing Offset -637 [ARv2 CRC AACE3945]
Not Enough Information in AccurateRip to Verify
Track 10: AccurateRip Verified Confidence 2, Pressing Offset -637 [ARv2 CRC 96E805BF]
Track 11: AccurateRip Verified Confidence 2, Pressing Offset -637 [ARv2 CRC B95B6FA9]

Shouldn't line 9 start with "Track 9: "? It looks inconsistent right now.
