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

Quote
In foobar2000 v1.4, a similar feature to "alter file content" was introduced for Opus files. However, it does not alter the entire audio stream, it alters Opus header gain value

Right. Also should be a pretty nice workaround.
I thought this was changing the audio but for opus that is not the case.
However, I prefer not to use Foobar if possible because it is Windows-ish only (but rsgain could also do this), and using the header gain for this somehow feels a bit dirty.
But it would be spec compliant. Hmm.

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.
