3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: Biography Discussion
Last post by MaFred -
Hello WilB,

Thanks for the great script!

I would like to point out that Biography 1.0.0 does not work properly:
When foobar is started and the first song is played, no artist picture appears. The Foobar stub image is displayed, although some Artist images are already stored in the cache. Only when the second song is played the artist images appear. From now on Biography-Script works correctly.
I would be happy if this bug is fixed.
Here runs Foobar 1.4.1 with the current Spider Monkey. With Biography this bug did not exist.
Sorry for my English.
3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Columns UI rating stars & grouping
Last post by sharpedge -
Hi there,

I love foobar and use it for many years. However, it was always the default UI for me, I am new to columnsUI and found that the new version works great.

The only problems I have:

1)   I cannot find out how to figure out a rating system within the new playlist. I would like to have empty stars or boxes in there that fill up when I rate a track. 5 items altogether would be ideal. I researched a lot on the web but couldn't so far find a piece of code that works.

2) How can I group albums in the following way: I wish to keep everything within one directory together, groupwise but I would like to add more info to this divider: %genre%, %date%; %bitrate%. Is there a way to display these items but not use them for sorting? I tried but ended up with groups containing one file per group

Any help is GREATLY appreciated.

Yep, I always run the RG scan based on albums (by tags) and write both Album and Track RG tags to my files.  Then I can use either track or album gain for playback. I like the "by playback order" RG mode in foobar2000. This automatically uses TRACK RG value if playing tracks from different albums, but uses ALBUM RG value if playing two or more tracks back to back from the same album (to preserve intra-album volume differences that were intended).  Best of both situations.

Yeah, I feel a little mentally challenged for not wrapping my brain around it at first.... now it does seem obvious.

I blame Avisynth, because I've been using it bit lately and it won't forgive a comma out of place, so I was in a mind-set where if highlighting was supposed to be done like >>>this<<<, it couldn't possibly work like >>>this, and therefore I must be missing something. :)

Thanks for you help!
General Audio / Re: How to obtain true hi rez audio via YouTube?
Last post by MetaPixel -
If you want the best audio on youtube, just export with a lossless audio codec (FLAC and WAV will work) to avoid transcoding, or the highest quality AAC available (surprisingly, AAC handles transcoding very well). Better safe than sound, I wouldn't trust youtube to not transcode audio, and I also believe that id 251 is always targeting 128kb/s and the OPUS VBR is raising it up depending on the content. You can see this behavior when encoding OPUS files in VBR manually, depending on the content the average bitrate can go up to double the target value.
General - (fb2k) / ABX
Last post by Jakob1863 -
I´ve seen that the ABX plugin still uses the unfortunate - because it is incorrect - statement "probability that you´re guessing" which leads to quite frequent misunderstandings as it seems to support a common fallacy about the p - value for this kind of test.

It would be better to exchange this statement by another one, expressing the true meaning of the p - value like "probability to reach your number (or even more) of correct answers by random guessing" .
