foobar2000 mobile / Re: Preview of foobar2000 mobile v1.4
Last post by pyr452 -
I hope this addresses FTP server hammering issues some have been suffering from.
The new release was like Christmas for me, but I'm afraid to report: the problem with "421 Unauthorized client limit reached" still exists.
What did you change? Is there a hardcoded "x connections per minute" or "sleep x seconds" value, that could be made configureable via the options?
I don't mind waiting for 30-60mins to get the indexing done, as long as it succeeds.

The new beta is still only able to index about 1/3 of my whole song library.

Edit: There seem to be additional new entries in the indexing error log saying "225 ABOR command successful", which I don't remember to be there before.
They also sometimes popup when trying to play a file.
Towards the end of the indexing error log, the messages change to "network error".

If you only use "foobar2000 music folder", you're not affected.
If you use SD card folders on some new-enough phone, you might have to remove folders from foobar2000 media library and add them again, at which point you will be asked to grant foobar2000 full disk access permissions.
MP3 / Re: 320 sounding better than V0?
Last post by The Irish Man -

MP3.. has a maximum supported bitrate of only 320kbps, so the V0 version at it's best moments can go up to only 320 kbps, whilst the 320k cbr version stays at 320 throughout the duration of the track

that's why you're liking the 320kbps cbr version more

LAME V0 setting has been very finely tuned over the years, so there should be no difference between the 2.
Some ABX testing is really needed for this track.
