3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: foo_youtube
Last post by eduardokbb -
Hello. I'm trying to use this component to add youtube stations (live audio like this www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SakCDX_fGA), but I'm facing some intermittent stucks (the audio stops for a short time and then resumes). Is there some known bug for that or perhaps the component is not meant to work properly with live stations? Thank you for your attention and I'm really sorry for bad english.

Peace!

EDIT:

I forgot to say that there are absolutely no stucks when playing audio that is not live. I believe that if it was possible to delay and cache 3 seconds audio or something like that the problem would be solved. But I'm not a developer, don't know if what I'm suggesting here is even possible nor how complex would it be do such a thing. It's just something that came to mind. Thank you again!

Audio Hardware / Re: Objective measurements of portable players using df-metric
Last post by Serge Smirnoff -
One of SE readers offered his Shanling M2s portable player for testing. It is an entry level player for audiophiles.  I've performed usual measurements according to our listener-centric audio metric and tried to write a short review based on them - http://soundexpert.org/articles/-/blogs/audio-quality-of-shanling-m2s

In short: it is not audibly better than iPhone 4/5/6. Df-slide of the player:



Df-slides of different settings/devices can be compared here - http://soundexpert.org/portable-players

Vinyl / Re: 192/32 needed for digitized vinyl to sound as analogue as possible
Last post by Groove -
Somewhat telling that the OP hasn't returned to defend his position, however:

...to have the sound as analogue as possible...

Do you seriously believe there are degrees of analog? Digital vs analog is a clear-cut, black & white distinction. Can something be "slightly digital" or "mostly analog"? No, it either is analog or it is not analog. The only way to keep a recording "as analog as possible" is to USE an analog recording system.

Certainly you can capture a saturated analog sound digitally.

How many bits and what sample rate you need to achieve that is a different discussion.

Support - (fb2k) / Library files could not be written. Bug?
Last post by maddog-ware -
Hello there,

I am new here. I'm using foobar2000p since 2011. From this time forward I have the portable installation on my Windows-Share (small home-server) in my music-folder. Mostly I run foobar from this remote directory on my desktop pc. Until version 1.1 I had no problems using a big music library (around 500 GB Music).

My problem cames slowly in version 1.3. On closing foobar sometimes I'm getting the error 'Library files could not be written (Directory not empty). If you choose 'cancel', your recent library changes will be lost.'. After a few clicks on 'repeat' foobar quits successfully. Since the update to version 1.4.1 I'm getting the same error nearly everytime. Clicking 'repeat' doesn't work anymore. It seems that the error occours on (bigger) changes in library. If I run foobar without making major changes in the library the program closes successfully.

Console shows:

Running this portable foobar on the local machine (home server, Win 7 x64) there are no problems.

I've tried to run this portable installation from network share under Windows 10 x64:
  • with administrator privileges
  • in windows 7 compatible mode
  • with full access rights for 'everyone'
  • after deletion of the library-folder
  • with clean portable installation of version 1.4.1

no chance! Old version 1.1 is running perfectly.

Do you have any ideas? It would be wonderful if you can help me.

Thank you a lot and greetings!

Last post by loudmusiclover -
Good day everybody...

Is there a way when you display fullscreen with the graphic eq, you can get the album art displayed behind the eq?

Thank you

Is there anything correct here? I don't think so.
