3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: NEW ESLyric v0.5 - an alternative lyric show component
Last post by ngs428 -
This would seem to me to be a bug specific to the Plex player (omitting the first line of lyrics saved with BOM) that should be addressed by the Plex developer, and not a cause for alarm for anyone who "accidentally" saved their embedded lyrics fom ESLyric that way.  I let ESLyric save into tag on a test leaving the BOM box checked (its default setting), and the lyrics were all there and perfectly readable starting with the first line of the panels in the AIMP and MusicBee players as well as the standards-picky Kid3 tagger.

Correct, it is a bug in Plex, but others may be using Plex and experience the same behavior.  I don't see it as an issue with ESLyrics, just more of an FYI for those who saved as +BOM and are using Plex. 

An issue was opened on their fourms at: https://forums.plex.tv/t/1st-line-of-sidecar-lyrics-omitted-when-lrc-file-saved-as-utf-8-bom/878789

A quick note for anyone who accidentally saved their lyric files as UTF-8-BOM.  In the lyric save settings page there is a check box for encoding saved files as "+BOM".  Can't remember if it was set that way as default, but the lyrics I saved that way were not showing properly in my Plex media player.  The first lyric line was being omitted

Validated News / Re: FFmpeg 7.0 "Dijkstra" released 2024-04-05
Last post by mycroft -
Could someone please explain what is wrong with new versions of ffmpeg? Should we use 6.1 or 7.0 or 7.0.1 or older versions? I heard that there were/are some personal issues but do those affect the product in any way?

It goes more into corporate network bubble with making personal networking between current devs and their business and various corporations.
Its mostly now low-effort, by state sponsored maintenance work over auto-detected issues in source code - of questionable outcomes and benefit.
Still extreme low effort is taken on fixing user reported regressions and bug fix/feature requests reports. And new features are limited or buggy in some usecases.
There is some cool and nice stuff, like cleanups and refactoring but net results is still negative.

Thanks. As you stated, the configuration in the file still seems to be intact. That somewhat implies the problem is happening when reading the settings, rather than when writing them.

Could you provide a little bit more information about your hardware (e.g. what CPU do you have)? Could you also check if it still happens with a new portable installation of foobar2000 (with Columns UI and Album list panel as the only additional components)? (You can copy your foo_uie_albumlist.dll.cfg over to it when foobar2000 is closed.)

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / crash with mixed file types
Last post by OtherSteve -
Hello,

Thank you very much for making a 64-bit version of this.  Installed and used it extensively this past weekend, and it performed extremely well with one exception:  if a folder contained files of mixed type (FLAC + MP3, for example), it crashed foobar2000.  Though probably not very common with single albums, I have multiple folders of mixed files downloaded from various online sellers that would love it if this could be corrected.  Appreciate the consideration.

Thanks,

Steve

foobar2000 for Mac / Re: foobar2000 for Mac: bugs & wishes
Last post by Guildencrantz -
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.

That looks very odd. Could you upload (or send me) your foo_uie_albumlist.dll.cfg (ideally one that is OK and a copy of one immediately after the problem occurs)?

I compared the foo_uie_albumlist.dll.cfg file before the reboot and after the reboot, the file is unchanged but I lost the settings  :(  I am sending you this file via PM
