Last post by MordredKLB -
So it was more than a few days, but I finally released v5.0.0 with official support for 2.0/x64. Enjoy, and please report any bugs or wonky behavior. Hopefully that's been cut down somewhat with this one. Only changes from the beta 2 were refactoring some code to make maintenance a lot easier going forward and bumping the version number.

You can get it here or through the component registry.

Thank you
Movie/Multichannel audio / Re: What is the effect of converting multichannel movie Atmos/DTS to AAC?
Last post by ProxyCell -
I must thank you both for this. It has been enlightening!
I understand your warnings and suggestions but I will continue to go the AAC route for now. The size issues are quite severe at my scale.

I tested this out yesterday and this morning with a few of the most recent blurays I bought and some older DVD TV series and the after averaging out the size differences between them I realized I couldn't afford it sadly.

Thank you both for helping me make an informed decision on this.

Hi there Marc, sorry for unrelated Jscript post. In some of your post, I see your foobar actually use a different shade of dark RGB(19, 19, 19) background as seen on
toolbar header background, window background and also the stacked tabs. May I ask how to do that? Thank you.

General - (fb2k) / Foobar2000 v2 Resume Playlist suggestion
Last post by loohop -
I noticed that foobar2000 v2 already saves your position in playlists without any additional plugins. It would be nice if it were easier to resume a playlist after playing a different playlist. Highlighting the last played track in playlists would be very helpful, and a "Resume Playlist" context menu command as well. Right now, the only way to resume a playlist after playing a different playlist is to select the playlist, close foobar2000, reopen foobar2000, and press play.

Last post by etip -
New version :
Playlist Organizer (Jscript Panel 3)

Version changes :
- if the option to not show the active song sign is chosen then the list starts closer to the left side of the panel.
- implemented a tooltip with the total length of the hovered playlist.
- Code fixes (hopefully)

@iridescentaudio can you please check if you still have the (auto Collapse) issue, i dont on my side but i'm not sure i solved it.

Sorry for that. I asked you personally because you are professional developer and can diagnose this problem.
Porcus is incorrect. When volume in foobar is at max 0dB, foobar does not do internal processing and must output bits as they are in file. (if the intput of dac can accept it)

When  volume in foobar is at max 0dB and the file is 24bit it outputs bit-perfect as in file.
But if the file is 32bit integer foobar outputs it as 24bit simply by trunkating last 8bits. And the output is not bitperfect then.
So my question why it is so?

JRiver Media Center outputs 32bit integer as is at 32bit.

Porcus is correct, you're wrong.  foobar2000 converts everything to 32-bit floating point in 32-bit versions of the application where 64-bit versions (2.0 or newer) convert everything to 64-bit floating point.  foobar2000 does internal processing at all times regardless of the volume setting.  It's just at 0 dB that this processing is simply a lossless passthrough of sorts for most formats up to 24-bit integers (i.e. reversible) in 32-bit versions.  I know I'm repeating what has been said, but maybe you need to hear it from somebody else.

I understand that internal processing is 32-bit floating point or 64-bit floating point. But the input of my DAC is 32bit. So after processing foobar have to convert the data from 32-bit floating point to 32bit integer. Or to 24bit integer for DAC with 24bit inputs. There is even an option "Output data format" 16/24/32bit to choose.

So i have 3 questions:

1. Why foobar outputs data in 24bit, even if i choose Output data format as 32bit? (My DAC internal test indicates that it is 24bit)
2. If the volume is changed and not 0dB, foobar will process and convert the data from 32-bit floating point to 32bit integer or to 24bit integer?
3. How can i play in foobar 32bit files on a 32bit DAC bit-perfect? Other programs can do this a long ago.
