foobar2000 mobile / Re: version 1.3 bug? (can no longer create playlist by folder)
Last post by pyr452 -
it seems that the devs don't care/check the forum. This is just for us mere mortals...
Summer time is holiday time.
I'm waiting for a fix for my FTP problem as well, but I guess we need to be patient.
Aside from that foobar2000 is free and therefore it's completely up to Peter and the other devs what they'll fix and when.
There's nothing that can be demanded...
3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: Playlist-Tools-SMP
Last post by regor -
This makes no sense. Are you adding the main file to "foobar2000\scripts\SMP\xxx-scripts\"? (profile folder)

Are those helper files in that path?

You are using most of those helpers on other scripts and they work fine with relative paths too (?) Try using the new files.

Try test 1 instead of the previous button bar.

Then try test 2 to copy (6), it will simply include 1 helper file at a time.

PD: added the info to github ;)

Still crashing the player
Code: [Select]
TEST 1:  helpers\buttons_xxx.js


I saw in the GitHub report "No winetricks", but in the profile tested I have "mdac28 wsh57" installed to download bio images.
I tried in a new profile without verbs with the same results.
General - (fb2k) / Re: Vinyl Tracknumber
Last post by Dracaena -
How things are sorted depends on what library viewer and view pattern you are using. Album List? Columns UI?

There should be no issue sorting tracks in correct order, no matter how you tag, you just have to edit the view pattern (in the case of Album List), or rename the filenames correctly (in the case of "by folder structure" view), or edit the sort pattern (in the case of Columns UI, or Facets, etc)

If you're not sure which library viewer, maybe post a screenshot.

It looks like your sorting is going by tracknumber and ignoring discnumber. In short, yes, you can tag A1, A2 if you wish, or use numbers, just have to set it up.
Yeah mine sorts by discnumber correctly using default album list and playlists.
Support - (fb2k) / OPUS decoding sounds terrible
Last post by Squeller -

I encoded stuff to OPUS, I want to test the format on some target devices. Playback in fb2k is rather horrible. A pretty steady sawwave drone is kind of oscillating. Unstable in loudness. It is not the case in the flac source and also isn't the case in an opus->wav conversion, so it must be some flaw in the decoding process. Also tested VLC output, plays fine.

Do I have options? I don't even know if OPUS is handled by some decoder plugin or natively.

The track FLAC source from is this one, it's in the beginning on the pads/drones, very well audible 0:30 ff..


EDIT: I removed the ReplayGain tags, now it plays fine! Replaygain made fb2k play the file significantly louder; without RG it plays more quiet. But the phenemenon does not re-appear with the played louder via the speaker knob. IDK what happened here.
Opus / Re: Opus 1.3.1
Last post by Squeller -
John at rarewares has just uploaded 32 bit and 64 bit compiles of Opus 1.3.1
I'm using that one and get abysmal results. Wondering is something is wrong. On long sawwave kind of pads/drones, it is kind of ducking/oscillating. Will show samples tomorrow as I'm still wondering if there's something wrong in my side. It's on fb2k convert "--quiet --bitrate 128 --vbr --music - %d" - I hear easily audible and annoying loudness instability, as in ducking, as popular in IDM, all over the place. EDIT: It's not in the opus->wav convert. Good, so it must be something wrong in the fb2k decoding process.
