Support - (fb2k) / Re: Track timing with Don't reset DSP between tracks
Last post by lvqcl -
I tested how SoX resamplers deals with chunks when foobar2000 resamples 44100 Hz FLAC file to 48000 Hz.

Sizes of input chunks : 4096; 4096; 4096; 4096; 4096; 4096; 4096; 4096; 4096; 4096;...
Sizes of output chunks : 7238; 5786; 3857; 3857; 5787; 3857; 3857; 3858; 5786; 3857; ...

(Apparently the decoder reads a FLAC frame, decodes it and sends an audio chunk to foobar2000 core. So the length of all input chunks is 4096 samples.)

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: JScript Panel script discussion/help

The problem is caused by using different JS engines:
Chakra engine provides ECMA-5 support, while JScript provides ECMA-3 (with some extensions).
`Array.indexOf` is a ECMA-262 5th edition feature, so it is not available under JScript engine, which is used by default when migrating from v1.3.2.2 to v2.* (v1.3.2.2 used Chakra if it was available though).

Thanks, I was not aware of using the Chakra engine, with the previous version. I was actually not even aware that different jscript engines exist.

FLAC / Re: playing FLAC files ripped by EaC in a DLNA network
Last post by Rollin -
Usually problems with FLAC files are caused by embedded artwork or nonstandard/variable block size. Do problematic files have embedded artwork?
About block size and other possible differences: you can use metaflac.exe --list filename.flac to see complete info about your FLAC files and find what is difference between old and new files.

FLAC / Re: playing FLAC files ripped by EaC in a DLNA network

and I have an update:

- It I convert the FLAC files ripped many years ago to WAV (with Foobar2000) conserving the tags and then back to FLAC....then they play automatically advancing the tracks. So it does not seem to be a problem with EaC but with FLAC.

One more clue: the problem seems to be gone after switching fom jscript to chakra engine.
The problem is caused by using different JS engines:
Chakra engine provides ECMA-5 support, while JScript provides ECMA-3 (with some extensions).
`Array.indexOf` is a ECMA-262 5th edition feature, so it is not available under JScript engine, which is used by default when migrating from v1.3.2.2 to v2.* (v1.3.2.2 used Chakra if it was available though).

Support - (fb2k) / Droning/Buzzing sound and fast forward when resuming playback after pause (ASIO)
Last post by Vexx23 -
Hello, I'm new to this forum, although I am a very enthusiastic audio lover, and I've already read tons of posts on this platform. :-X

Recently I've experienced a very strange phenomenon on foobar2000. I mostly listen to my flac rips of my own CDs, using foobar2000 with an external DAC (Fiio X3 II) but at work I have to rely on simple earphone directly plugged to the laptop.
 When using an external source for decoding, everything is fine, whereas the problem occurs when using the sound card output (Realtek High Definition Audio) with ASIO: if the playback is paused and then resumed, the playback fast-forwards a lot, to the point of skipping more tracks (although it seems it depends on how long the track is paused), producing a very annoying droning-buzzing sound, which resembles the sound of a turntable needle scratching.

This does not happen with WASAPI whatsoever. With DSD ASIO, there is no skip or droning sound, even though a slight jerk before resuming is sometimes audible. With ASIO driver of external DAC, again, all green. The problem is completely new, I have been listening to albums with foobar2000 for 3 years without this phenomenon.
Maybe I messed with some settings, even though I seldom change something I don't know anything about.
Please help, this is driving me crazy.  :'(  I can provide any data about my configuration. Thank you

FLAC / playing FLAC files ripped by EaC in a DLNA network
Last post by Audacious TRex -
Hello,
I am not sure this part of the forum is the correct one to post the question, however I try and apologies if its wrong.

I have been using EaC to rip my CDs for ages, I think I started in 2006 ripping them to FLAC files to be played by a Squeezebox.
As a result many of my CD rips are now 12 years old.

Yesterday I was trying to figure out why some albums I now play on a Denon DNP-730AE (a DLNA HiFi player) with the help of HiFicast, an android application working as DLNA control point, have such a behaviour:

- If I play an album ripped many years ago by EaC, the player does not automatically advance the tracks.
- If I rip again the same album by EaC, (standard options) then the player works fine, automatically advancing the tracks.

HiFicast has an option to "force" the tracks to advance, but I would prefer not to use it cause I'll loose the "gapless" mode.

I do not think I used any special way to rip the CDs many years ago, so I am wondering if somebody can try to explain to me the reason of such a behaviour.

Thanks a lot


Marco

Support - (fb2k) / Re: Properties dialog refresh failure: bad allocation
Last post by Peter -
It generally means that the system was not able to hand us the amount memory we just asked for.

This can happen for a couple of different reasons:
- Something within the foobar2000 process (main app itself or an add-on component) requested a lot of memory and did not release it, nearing the 4GB barrier that we cannot exceed being a 32-bit application.
- Due to some kind of a bug we asked for an amount of memory that we cannot possibly ever obtain, such as a continuous block of 1 gigabyte.

FLAC / Re: should i use dedicated DAC
Last post by probedb -
Wow, you are easily offended if that offends you. If you question the difference between the two, old built in soundcard vs RME Fireface 802, then I am certain that you are blind to the difference in quality and could never notice the difference.

You should probably reread the TOS you agreed to when you signed up to this forum. Also back to the insults again.
