Damn it, the problem is back, even on a Win10 prefix. It's weirdly inconsistent though. It seems I can add tags that were previously empty, and when I disable and then re-enable IDE3v2, I can edit tags once before they go back to being uneditable.

This is bizarre.

is there a template just with artwork only?

This one might come close:
Full cover art is the background, and if you tap it shows just the art and some controls above & below.

unfortunately this template doesn't update in real time like “ajquery-xxx”, when I switch the track in foobar, the information in the browser doesn't change and the cover doesn't change either. the cover is stretched, also.
I'm not sure if foo_httpcontrol could be modified to force a template refresh in such cases.

Anyway, the reason my template refresh on real time is just because I force the template to update itself every x seconds and check for changes, which is a pretty easy thing to add to any template. The android app works the same.

When you ask for a template with just artwork, you mean this?
Full cover art is the background, and if you tap it shows just the art and some controls above & below.
I think I could add such mode to ajquery-xxx. Or maybe a new template.

Hello pqyt and Others.

Hi All and Hi @fbuser ,
I need some help on repairing the config.sqlite file/dbase.
I am new to sqlite, so I tried first using "DB Browser for SQLite": exporting to SQL and then trying to rebuild a .sqlite file by importing the previously exported SQL. But I all the times faced blocking errors.

Is it possible to use the Foobar embedded SQLite console?
Or, can anyone give me a step by step process to follow?

Many thanks, Andrea
Support - (fb2k) / Re: DSP Switcher issue
Last post by marc2k3 -
I tested the SDK api for switching presets and if you supply it with an index equal or greater than the preset count, it can make the toolbar switcher go blank. So some component must be doing that. I'm pretty sure fb2k would not do that by itself.

And FWIW, I know it's not my own JScript Panel component. This method can switch presets...

but it has range checks to prevent a bad index being supplied.

edit: you could argue that fb2k itself should reject such updates but I can't be bothered. :P

I can confirm that the behavior of the latest version (1.0.5) is strange regarding dsp presets.
I realized my dsp chain would get seemingly reordered and it seemed as though two of my dsp chains would try to get merged into one every time I manually changed tracks.
E.g., I set up chains in foobar dsp page that has something like channel mixer, dolby headphone, crossfader, and equalizer.
After changing tracks manually, that becomes something like crossfader, iir filter, equalizer, dolby, channel mixer.
Reverting to 1.0.4 fixes it.
may i know if 1.0.4 works ?
just because i like this component
