General - (fb2k) / How add streams?
Last post by jbw -
For the Android version, is there any way to add stream URLs other than creating a playlist?

When I create a playlist, there doesn't seem to be a way to add a url as it's just a blank page and the pencil icon at the top right corner of the screen does nothing when I press it. And long pressing the playlist title doesn't give the option to.
MPC / Re: Just discovered this old gem of a codec.
Last post by Klimis -

Vivid and accurate stereo imaging is thankfully also part of the package here. Sometimes a codec will alter the stereo field in some way and compress it, such that sounds are either smeared across a wider degree angle in the horizontal plane (an approximation of position instead of being rendered accurately), or they collapse into the centre (rendered as mono) if they are close enough to it

Which codecs & at what bitrate?
I guess opus below 128kbps and vorbis below 160kbps everything above 12KHz-ish is mostly mono. Atleast it's the reason that breaks transparency for me for any content with a decent amount of stereo separation and sounds that are transient-ish and have panning effects. It's like parts of that transient are leaking from one channel to the other (I think it's called crosstalk? Correct me if I'm wrong).

Hi there,

Not sure why tracks are being moved for you. Dragging and dropping (either from Explorer or foobar library / playlists) should only be adding a link / copy, not removing the source. Tracks are grouped by tags, so unless you are changing the %album% tag, they should still be listed in library viewer as part of the album.

As to ease of adding individual tracks to a playlist, that depends greatly on your layout. ('Playlist Manager' helps)

I also don't like having to navigate an entire drop out menu in order to add a track to a playlist.
How are you currently doing it? Do you mean right-click > 'Add to Current Playlist'?

Agree x3. I must admit I've had the occasional daydream that if I had only taken C++ programing back in school, what I might do if I could make my own foobar components. :)) I have wondered if possible to replicate the DUI containers - tabs, splitters - exactly as they are but with an additional right-click option for 'Colors...'. The fact that no-one has done this in ~16 years since foobar entered the world, leads me to believe such a thing is probably not possible with the SDK, or without a complete reworking such as CUI. And if not possible by a third party, I think I would rather see our friendly developer continue to keep foobar functional rather than take time to change its form.

(This is a lot of supposition of course)

In any case, hope Microsoft can improve the dark mode themes for sure, without people having to use DLL hacks. That would be ideal.

1- Yes, I know Foobar follows the Windows 10 theme. But to make all the frames and scroll bars black you need to enable high contrast settings which look hideous.

I agree the built-in dark themes are a joke.

I recommend 'Window Blinds' - free demo to try and otherwise only $10. Now FB and ALL my apps are easy on the eyes.

(I have no connection to the developer other than being very satisfied with the product)

Hi there,

Have a look in your foobar install / profile folder for a file called 'FileOps-Presets.txt' - this is where the presets are stored since v1.4. Try editing the order of items there. (Not sure if need to close foobar first)


Ah, fantastic, thanks so much, been crying out for this to be added for an eternity, can't believe I didnt notice sooner :D

Works a treat, closed foobar, just copied & pasted elsewhere in the txt file (and removed the old entry) and opened foobar again, voila! :)
