Nevermind... stupid me. Obviously the server loads the files from the pc not the remote point, so all is there from the start.

Well, then SMP integration is fully done with descriptions of what those menus do -according to what you set within foobar- via Playlist Tools.
Wil share the new template on the next release of Playlist Tools.

Well, I conducted various ABX over the last few days and a hearing test today, and the blind test results weren't passable (11/16 at best, p-value >10%). Easy ear fatigue. I could blame the fact I'd moved to a new house (major differences in resonance) and the window air conditioners, but I'm going to conclude that at age 37 I can't hear ultrasonic frequencies well enough to ABX the tracks I tested and a brick wall 20KHz lowpass. Because no formal tests were done 2 years ago, I retract my claim on that as a statement of fact.

In the hearing test, I could hear a pulsating 20.5KHz sine, using Audacity sampling at 96KHz. The boost required was so high that going higher could damage my ears, but I can safely conclude that I can hear above 20K, just barely. The dropoff after 19KHz was very steep.

I never claimed ultra high res was necessary; in fact the test in the article I linked made it clear that not one person could hear 30KHz. That would mean for even the most ideal conditions a maximum master sample rate of 60KHz. There's no reason for 192KHz masters unless you want to entertain animals. And the thing about controlled environments with extremely high Signal Pressure Levels is that they don't reflect any kind of normal listening experience. The kind of levels required for 24KHz are dramatic enough that I'll probably never hear of anyone who can tell the difference between a 96KHz FLAC and 48KHz of the same source. Yes, 48KHz is good enough. (I just wish Opus gave the option to encode more bands.)

As for MQA, I think Mnyb on ASR described it best: "a closed source licensing racket that no one needs."

It looks like group titles don't obey the 'Display ellipses in truncated text' setting and always have ellipses enabled.

I can't see changing it to respect that setting being a problem, so I could change it to respect it.

Whoopee.

Back to your previous point about not needing it... why do windows users have to install it but WINE users get a free pass?

Why don't components that require IE work? According to you everything should "just work" because of that WINE magic. Nevemind all those winetricks hacks just to get scripts working. That was all imaginary right? It should all work right out of the box. LOL indeed. :/

maybe I have not expressed myself correctly but i don't said anything like that.

On the contrary. Things in wine are not the same that if you use windows.

To something works it needs to be implemented in wine, not just install the windows equivalent.

Nothing about magic or free passes, please.

Is only how things work with an abstraction layer. Is not an emulator or a virtual machine, is a abstractin layer.



So not more easy, instead way more difficult.

above all if wue are talking about internal windows components and apis.

That how always was working and I'm using it more than 15 years.

LOL

To play a dirxt12 game i don't install direct12 in wine.

Wine translate the direct12 calls to linux to make it work.

Or use DXVK that translate to vulkan.

If I install direct12 things doesn't work

Is that way.

Nothing about magic.

It seems you only need the WebView2 runtimes then?? My mistake. I assume this installs fine for you in WINE?

https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/webview2/#download-section

It's nearly 100MB which is a hefty requirement for fancy dialog boxes. Note @TheQwertiest hasn't even started work on it yet (edit: judging by github activity - no idea what he's doing offline :P)
Offtopic, but if popup windows were allowed, it would be feasible to draw them as independent SMP panels which could emulate a config window or whatever, the same we are doing with html. It would take a bit of work to create a js framework to draw arbitrary blank config panels, but can be done. Although the same can be done on the main panel with tabs right now.

Personally I prefer that approach instead of relying on ie, and the framework could be shared to be used by other scripts too, the same I shared the menu framework. Having in mind all the years most scripts have been in foobar, we are clearly reinventing the wheel with every new script and update instead of sharing stable js frameworks to work with.
