I agree with you that it would be most elegant to use the built in foobar converter functionality. However, there is no interface to it in the SDK, in particular there is no way to get handles of the generated files.
Thanks for your kind feedback and reporting the issue. Are you using the latest version of the component?
Does the destination location contain the playlist files?
Could you please upload the crash logs here, or send them to me via PM. This is probably faster than retrieving them from Peter.
Thank you very much for this component. I have been waiting for something like this for a long time (basically since my ipod broke and that I have to use other devices / services now)....Again thanks for the development and wish you all the best.Cheers.
Possibility to use multiple command line settings. Google music is best served with mp3 (everything else gets converted by google music). The other devices are better off with nero mp4 (better sound at very low bitrates).Possibility to conduct multiple commands instead of only one
Using the converter e.g. downmixing 5.1. mixes to stereo, to resample to 44,1 kHz or applying replaygain. (Currently, conversion will fail if target e.g. mp3 does not support multiple channels).
Embed and resize album art. All devices do not show art if it exceeds a certain size. (like foo ipod did)
Even thorough you wrote that you have no know knowledge of where the files are written to: a foo-ipod-like sync functionality would be awesome. If new files are added only these get converted, if files are removed from the playlist, they are being removed from the device as well. (I remember the author stored a sql lite database on the device which stores information of all files on the device).
Been waiting for something like this for ages!I can't seem to replace a string with an empty string though.For example, $replace(%path%,A,B) is fine but not $replace(%path%,A,). Or am I doing something wrong?

I've been trying to replace multiple directories in the path so that I can preserve the folder structure when converting. $replace(%path%,C:\,) will work but anything more than that will result in an "incorrect path syntax", e.g. $replace(%path%,C:\Users,)Although... I've been thinking that it might be easier to just keep the *.lossy.mp3 files and then extract them using a VBS later.Also, it will be great if changed files, not just newly added files, will be converted as well! I suppose you can compare the .mp3's timestamp with the source file's "Date Modified" file attribute.
