Support - (fb2k) / Re: %CONTENT GROUP% mapping error
Last post by j7n -
This tag mapping is confusing now in Beta 17.

With Advanced -> Tagging -> Vorbis & FLAC -> Compatible with old Foobar versions:-  Writing GROUPING into a FLAC, is read back as CONTENT GROUP. Writing to CONTENT GROUP then is written to CONTENT GROUP literally. Not possible to add a field named "Grouping". Not exactly compatible because the field Grouping is forcibly renamed on tag update. Better skip remapping entirely in this compatibility mode, or always use Grouping, as in the other mode.

With Advanced -> Tagging -> Vorbis & FLAC -> Compatible with various software:- Writing GROUPING into a FLAC, is read back as CONTENT GROUP. Writing to CONTENT GROUP is written to GROUPING. Effectively Content Group becomes a new alias to Grouping. This is fine.

In APEv2, no special mappings occur, and it is possible add and read both fields.

In my opinion new mappings defined today should be the same for both Vorbis and Ape, so that it is possible to use %whatever% on a mixed set of FLAC/TAK/WV/Vorbis/MPC files, and get a consistent result without $if(...). The linked table says that Ape and Vorbis should be the same for this field.

I don't personally use Grouping for genre/style. But I am discouraged to start using it now on a mixed collection.

PM me the IP address you are browsing from at home? Also the time you are attempting to browse.

E: Disregard that, it's logged.

E2: I see several accesses preceding that which were banned for using privacy VPN services or VPS hosted servers that had a default hostname for their provider, which is in the banned hostnames list. One of them being unknown.puregig.net.

Why would I be banned for life for using a VPN? Is that so uncommon? How do I get un-banned?

Usually because a persistent spammer is using the same VPN service to hide their true IP.

Support - (fb2k) / Re: Incorrect display of DTS-HD stream format from MKV
Last post by kode54 -
It's a limitation of the packet_decoder interface. I'm only allowed to detect the format from the first packet, and DTS-HD requires at least two packets, since the first packet, as far as the container is concerned, is the DTS compatibility header. It doesn't help that every input packet is alternating with DTS lossy data, which is also essential to the decoding process.

Support - (fb2k) / Re: Beta 17 download imposible (only via download manager - and still slow)
Last post by kode54 -
Are you sure it's not your routing? There is no download throttling on the server that I know of, I just know it's awfully slow to anywhere with significant distance from the UK if you're not the CloudFlare network. (I tested a test subdomain on the same server, against one of my CloudFlare domains, with their proxy, and was able to achieve full speed. Of course, using CloudFlare does automatically exclude some countries from access at all.)
