Opus / Re: Android music players that support Opus and R128 gain
Last post by shadowking -
In foobar I don't see the option to Apply gain to file content ... with FLAC files. Should that option be there via the ReplayGain context menu?
Applying gain to lossless is possible only on re-encoding. fb2k's converter has option to apply ReplayGain on conversion. It is irreversible, of course. Unlike "Apply gain to file content" for mp3 and m4a which can be losslessly (i.e bit-perfect) reverted.

That's no problem IMO for lossy codecs. In fact its even better since any codec and any player in existence will work . In my case
album mode . But it can go even further; You can add RG tags that aware apps can use. Also with mp3 your not limited to 1.5db steps so more accurate .

That artist worked fine for me. Maybe something is blocking the download.

Inside your fb2k profile folder, browse to

Code: [Select]
foo_spider_monkey_panel\package_data\{BA9557CE-7B4B-4E0E-9373-99F511E81252}

Here there should be a file named foo_lastfm_img.vbs

This is used by the script to download images. To test it manually, open a powershell/command prompt in this folder. Run this command

Code: [Select]
cscript.exe //nologo foo_lastfm_img.vbs https://lastfm.freetls.fastly.net/i/u/770x0/0e5dbdea7c7c4127a1c9155eaedeb0a0.jpg test.jpg

and see if a file named test.jpg gets saved in that folder.



Seriously thank you both for getting back to me so quickly.. I am bit new to cmd unfortunately and the command doesnt seem to be working! Just saying the specified module could not be found.

Also tried a fix that was posted here regarding file name length and that did not help either.. I just find it very strange that I am able to receive all the other info from last.fm but just not getting the artist images.. Again im also able to display the album cover which I already have..

Hey there! I have been trying to sort this out for a really long time (wasted too many hours of my life) But just love this plugin so much and would really like to get it working fully!
I have the latest 1.4.2 version installed and latest JScript on foobar2000 version 1.6.7.0. Everything seems to be working fine except the classic "NO PHOTO" Problem with the artist image..
If anyone has any suggestions to fix this would be greatly appreciated! I have read this entire discussion, every page and tried every fix but nothing seems to work!
Appreciate your time in putting this plugin together in the first place, Cheers.

If you elaborate what this classic problem is, I might be able to help you out since I'm not aware of this problem and certainly don't have any issues with Biography.

Excuse me for not providing enough details! Basically everything is seeming to work except the downloading of the "artist" images for instance the plugin is able to show the album cover of the album playing but when i switch to the last.fm view the artist image is not shown and instead an image showing 'NO PHOTO' is present.. Checking in the directory where these images are meant to be saved, nothing is present, however I am able to get all the last.fm info... I have tried many different mainstream artists, I have tried downgrading to older versions of the plugin but nothing seems to work.
attached is an image of the issue i am speaking of, cheers for the help in advance.



Did you check these biography server settings?
Yes, been through all of the settings and tried troubleshooting for many days and have gone back to default. Just had a check and seems that my settings all match up with what you have there. I also checked permissions on the folders to see if that might be an issue but all clear there too...

Opus / Re: Android music players that support Opus and R128 gain

or just add ReplayGain tags using foobar and apply the gain to the actual files. Only works with lossy files (afaik) and maybe only do this to files you use purely for portable listening usage.
+1    Also works for lossless.  I do it on all lossy files not just for portable. album gain +  clip prevent. Can't find a fault yet and a reason to not do it (lossy).
In foobar I don't see the option to Apply gain to file content ... with FLAC files. Should that option be there via the ReplayGain context menu?
