Hello; re to Peter / Foobar2000 for Mac developers;

I registered to be able to post here and comment on Foobar2000 for Mac. Will give a few comments and suggestions.

When I came to the point I could switch to Mac due to financial constrains, I was shocked and annoyed to learn that there is no Foobar2000 for Mac. Additionally, most audio players are complete junk full of "features", actually preventing people from listening to music, same like on Windows machines. It turned out the only alternative is VLC; which is not that pleasant to use as an audio player. It is bulky and has weird usage logic. Than I found you published Foobar for Mac! :) Kudos! I use Foobar for mac essentially from the beginning for music play purposes. There are some issues with it however. If fixed, Foobar might as well become player of preference for Mac for millions of users.

1. Cmd+Backspace doesn't delete stuff from playlist; same for Fn+Backspace (del), only mouse right-click works - this is annoying
2. Foobar2000 **really** needs in program volume bar. Without it it is not possible to fine-tune volume levels
3. It would be fantastic if Foobar2000 would be integrated with Mac audio controls

You do this, and it would be bye bye all other players for tech savvy users.

Thank for making this software. Foobar is brilliant in its simplicity and effectiveness.

Sorry for reviving an old thread, but to save others from searching any further, I thought this updated and extra info would be of use.

File > Preferences > Shell Integration > Folder context menus

If it's still not showing, disable Windows Media Player.…

Click the start button and type or paste "windows features", and then click on Turn Windows features on or off > Media Features > un-check Windows Media Player.

Thanks for the answer

The first i wanted to change the tag and i didn't work so i checked if the files were read only or not.
There weren't. So i did again the tag operation without luck

At this time i didn't had the  foo_input_sacd-1.1.0 component.
I do the operation again with it but nothing change and i don't find where to configure it
But changing tags with mp3tag works well and are being accepted by foobar.

In any case,  any error message pop-up.

Well, I am surprised that other menu items have access keys. So, foobar2000 adds them if menu does not have its own access keys. And when URL item turn comes, all three letters are already taken by the above items. Fixed in the latest version.

Latest ffmpeg version is "too new" for the component. ffmpeg API changes with time, and these changes are not always back-compatible. So component has to limit max ffmpeg version. This limitation was added in 2.3.1. Previous versions most likely will crash if you would try to use new ffmpeg with them.
