Opus / Re: Opus 1.3.1

There are developments in lossy audio, depending on its intended use. Sound quality isn't all, sometimes latency is more important. And in the age of COVIDeoconferences there will often be so much bandwidth that squeezing audio size isn't the chief concern. The listening tests subforum has some food for thought. E.g. https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php?topic=120997.0 and several threads by @Kamedo2

It would surprise me if Opus couldn't be improved in some areas, but are those what it will be used for? If not, ... fine! That said, when https://wiki.xiph.org/OpusTodo still has "To do" for 1.2 when we are at 1.3, ...


(As for Vorbis' potential, it provided for bit peeling - did anyone ever get a working implementation?)

AFAIK Vorbis's full potential likely remains unachieved. Maybe that's just how the cookie crumbles - the formats are designed with headroom for improvement potential that just becomes too cumbersome to reach.

Presumably by now only MP3 is in the opposite of that situation.

Now that Columns UI has a Dark Mode, I'll ask the inevitable question, as I suppose somebody has to! Any chance of making the light scrollbar go away? :)

It would seem that plorg has not been updated in some years. Hopefully this would be a small reason for it to enjoy an update. I find this component extremely useful.

Is there a step-by-step instruction document for the absolute beginners?
No, but there is not that much what is really needed. All options are briefly explained in the help file, which you can find in the help menu. In the end the configuration depends on your actual needs.
I am not a SQL expert, nor a programmer
You don't need SQL at all nor to be a programmer. Although SQL driven pools are more powerful than pure title format pools, there are already a lot of pool definitions possible without SQL. In the end you need SQL only, if you want to use filter conditions, where tracks are picked based on the values of other tracks or if you want to use functions, which are not available in title format, e.g. regular expression functions.

If you have any specific use case and don't know how to define it, feel free to post it here. Possibly you can be helped.

@WilB: Again outstanding work, thank you very much!!
I very much like the the new possibility to tag last.fm track statistics, which works great for library tracks.
Is it as well intended to be used for YT tracks? I am getting various orders of the tags (playcount/listeners/score) for different tracks.
Thanks again for this great plugin!!
