General Audio / Re: What lossy format to use for Bluetooth transfer?
Last post by andy o -
To answer the OP directly: your best bet is to encode to AAC and have a phone and speaker that can use it over BT, which as I said above is not an insignificant number nowadays. Which devices are you using? Are you actually having battery troubles that you have pinned specifically to the transcoding? I'm pretty sure that part of the power usage equation is negligible in today's devices.

EDIT: posted without seeing the previous reply, so consider those parameters and if it's a good compromise.

EDIT 2: just noticed the mixer comment and it's right, it'll most likely be decoded to PCM first anyway.

songlength.txt includes every file in the STIL. I do not plan to write a way to modify the STIL documents. Storing the length in the tag only makes sense if I also offer a means to edit the length in the first place.

Try adding INDEX 00 to each track, with an offset of about 2 seconds or one second prior to the INDEX 01? Maybe report that to Mednafen for not supporting tracks without a specified INDEX 00?

Either lodge a feature request for fileops, or don't actually delete your files if they're short. I can still disable the subsong matching, but there will be different behavior once libopenmpt 0.4.0 is released.

AFAIK the only codec used both for music and BT A2DP in any significant way is AAC. Usually speakers and headphone manufacturers will advertise it if they use a non-SBC codec, it's selling point. Most modern Sony speakers and headphones use AAC at the very least, with higher tier ones using also LDAC. I know MP3 also can be used for BT, but no one that I know uses it, especially not any mainstream devices. In contrast, AAC over A2DP is supported in AOSP since Android 8.0, so probably all devices with 8.0 and above will support it. I think Apple also supports AAC on Bluetooth. Now if the devices will or won't reencode the AAC stream is up in the air, who knows.

Don't forget aptX and aptX-LL
aptX isn't used in stored audio though, or streaming services. AAC is the only one that could potentially (realistically) be piped without transcoding over BT.
General - (fb2k) / QUERY SYNTAX | Search how many files within an Album
Last post by fohrums -
Foobar2000 is my only music library of choice because of how flexible it is. I've been a user for several years now and still finding out ways to use it more effeciently. I've actually come across a devastating situation where a majority of my songs within my 8000+ track library has gotten track number set to "1". But, not all is bad as i'm able to retrieve the original tracklist from filename, but with some dilemma (e.g. of tracknumber set to 1):
Where left is saying for this Album all tracks are set to 1 and right shows filename with the original tracknumber

# EXAMPLE1 - %tracknumber% IS 1

Since I have a lot of songs within my library that only means a lot of Albums where there are correct track-no.1's and I'm trying to query a way to exclude seeing those files (here's what I came up with so far):
Where i'm searching up any song with a track-no. set to 1 and individually going through Albums where there's duplicate track#1's

# EXAMPLE2 - No. of tracks per %album%

The reason being that I can't select my whole library and retrieve the %tracknumber% via %filename% is because the file structure isn't consistent (like so):

# EXAMPLE3 - My library %filename% inconsistencies for mass tagging solutions

Now my question is, referring to EXAMPLE2, notice the numbering next to each Album? I want to add that to my query results to exclude any Album that only has an individual track#1. Instead, I want to only query results that have multiple track#1's within every Album in my library. Any ideas on how to do this?

Peter, what is the maximum library size foobar2000 can handle comfortably?
I'm not Peter but I don't think that can be answered. It depends so much on tag contents.

I tried halving all the values in the LargeFieldsConfig.txt file and now foobar2000 is using over 3000 MB of memory (5 times more than usual). Does that make sense?
No it doesn't. Perhaps you made a typo somewhere and disabled some spam fields for example. Unless that's just some one-time issue and restart of player solves that. Or it's a new bug. Please keep experimenting.

It's my understanding m-TAGS component requires loading files you want to tag to a playlist, use a menu entry to create tag files, remove the files from playlist and load the newly created tag files in their place.

This component will use external tags transparently. Just edit tags and they will be written as APEv2 tags next to the files you tagged. Load any file and external tags will be read if they exist.
