FLAC / Re: playing FLAC files ripped by EaC in a DLNA network
Last post by Klimis -
especially flacs with variable block size made with EAC's own flac encoder are completely unplayable on Android.
You probably mean CUETools and not EAC?
Oh you're right, I had something different in my mind and I mixed it up (had a similar issue with OP which made me switch to cuetools which seemed also to have issues), still though very similar problems happen with EAC too. Seems like dodgy things happen across flac implementations and tagging systems in general. I had similar issues with OP years ago but what seemed to fix it was removing artwork and re-encoding everything manually.

Support - (fb2k) / Incorrect display of DTS-HD stream format from MKV
Last post by flashgor -
When playing DTS-HS MA from an MKV container (with video stream) or MKA (audio only), UI element Selection Properties displays Codec: DTS, and Encoding: lossy.
The bitrate for MKV shows apparently cumulative with the video stream.
The same stream is demuxed as the dts file is displayed correctly, that is, Codec: DTS-HD (with profile), and Encoding: lossless.
Comparing the playback of streams from dts and mkv (mka) using the foo_bitcompare plugin did not reveal any differences.
On the working configuration of foobar2000, everything is the same.

Test configuration:
- Win7 SP1 x64;
- Foobar2000 1.4 beta 17 (portable);
- user-components folder:
   foo_bitcompare 2.1.1
   foo_input_dts 0.5.4;

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Is there somewhere I can request a component?
Last post by TheMeq -
Hi, new to the forums, but couldn't see a post about whether requests could be made or not?

I am after a plugin that is like the now playing plugin by SkipyRich, but for album art instead?

So it exports an album art image to a specific location, and overwrites it whenever a new song is played, if no album art exists, display a generic no album art image?

Is this possible? Is there another place I should post this?

Many Thanks,
TheMeq

@musicmusic, you were right!
but I noticed the following:
For foo_openmpt54 component the message field of metedata display of depends on the choice Right click menu at item details panel area:
Displayed track/Playing item or Current selection.
If select "Dispayed track/Current item" I see only "." (see attached pic. "not Ok.jpg")
if select "Dispayed track/Playing item" I see text of the message completely (see attached pic. "Ok.jpg")

For foo_openmpt component doesn't depend of the above selection, I see only "."

 :)
Thank a lot for your help!

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: Biography Discussion
Last post by Sergey77 -
1) The number of images stored can be restricted to a set value: Image [Artist] Cache Limit: "menu > sources > server settings" (biography.ini). That way newer images are added & older removed to give a fixed number of up-to-date images. Due to issues with lfm & images, both a few years ago and again recently, I think its best to cache images, and not make repeated requests for the same images. Plus it's faster.
@WilB,
but that mode (only one folder for cache with overwriting files for other artist - let's say overlay cache mode) can be realizable as enable/disable option. That realized and works well (and quite fast) in the script by kgena_ua. It would be great to have this opportunity for Biography script too.
Also, speed download can be increased by selecting the quality option of images - this is sometimes a useful thing.

3) Static mode. That can be done by specifying fallback images in foobar2000>preferences>display>album art. Titleformatting can be used in the patterns (e.g. genre related images could be used) or a stub set. Artist mode checks artist patterns & album mode checks front cover patterns. If auto mode is used, any unnecessary text auto-hides when nothing is found.
I meant the lock mode like in YouTube Track Manager.

Dear WilB, Please add these features for the next version if possible.

Thanks.

How many module decoders are there? :P

It definitely does work with foo_openmpt54 during playback – see screenshot.

foo_openmpt does indeed just return ..

foo_dumb doesn't seem to set that MESSAGE field, so not sure on the exact behaviour there.
