General - (fb2k) / Re: Multivalue tag - help needed
Last post by Terence -
Your code looks fine to me, so if it doesn't work :
Are the values separated by semicolons, when you look in the properties?
Is the tag really a multi-value tag? In my experience, this doesn't show up well in foobar: foobar can show semicolons and it can still be a single value. This is better seen in Mp3tag, for example: Mp3tag displays \\ as a separator when there are multiple values. You can also make a column in foobar with this pattern: $meta_sep(name,sep) , for example $meta_sep(releasecountry, \\ ). If the values are not separated by a ' \\ ', it's not a multi-value tag.

In foobar, in the properties, you can right-click on the tag > Split values... Check that your separator is in the list, and it will then be a multi-value tag.
In Mp3tag, there's a 'Split field by separator' action.

There's also a "Multivalue fields" setting in foobar's advanced preferences. If you touch your values (and want this to be a multi-value tag), you should add this tag to that setting. In this case, the values will be separated by semicolons on saving.

If that doesn't help... I don't know if this is allowed on the forum, but it would be easier to say if you shared a file.

Turns out it's surprisingly unnerving to determine the current time in milliseconds across platforms and across compiler-versions in C/C++, so here's my ugly little patch that cuts down the number of updates by counting:

https://github.com/maikmerten/hmp3/commit/fad361020b066bddaeaa2191022a70d8ba1e7eb9

(currently on the "dev" branch)

In my win64-in-Wine tests, this avoids the performance penality.

Crossover, any chance of a sneak visual preview of what you've been working on and when it might be released?
I was thinking about this and I already PM'd @Crossover but no response or any replies from that, so maybe too busy with other stuffs or is it?

BTW, don't expect the upcoming V2 of this spectrum analyzer component to have similar set of new features and changes as in this fanon wiki page (admittedly, I have some unrealistic expectations about upcoming stuffs), though I guess I might be disappointed if there is no option to use IIR filter bank for frequency bands mode in upcoming Enhanced Spectrum analyzer 2.0.0.0
I'm sorry TF3RDL, but my primary goal is to increase the performance of the component. After I release the OpenGL version of the component, I will take care of your ideas.  Probably not all of them, but may be a few :-) Thanks for your patience.

You're right sveakul :-) I've been using the V2 of the component since mid-2023.
Good to know it hasn't been abandoned! :)
Looking forward to this still!

I'm still working on it. But I need more time than expected because I decided to use OpenGl instead of GDI+ and therefore a large part of the code has to be rewritten. But OpenGl is much faster than GDI+. So it's worth the effort. So far I have been able to solve everything. Here is a current picture of the component.

I have a tag that has multiple values stored: DE, W. Germany, AT, FR, UK, US
Release country=RELEASECOUNTRY

X

According to the documentation $meta(name,n), I would like to display the indicated value but it does not work. My goal is to display the W. Germany value but nothing is displayed. I don't know why it doesn't work  :(

Code: [Select]
$meta(RELEASECOUNTRY,1)

MP3 - General / Re: Resurrecting/Preserving the Helix MP3 encoder

Thanks. That sounds like a good workaround for improving performance. But I'd like to know why the printing is so slow on those AMD systems. The GCC binary seems to use old functions from msvcrt.dll. Visual Studio compile is static and only calls Windows API functions externally. Clang compile calls functions from much newer Universal CRT.

Either way the msvcrt functions aren't slow on other machines...
