3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: Waveform Minibar (mod)
Last post by Case -
I saw it but I had nothing to comment.

Empty UI elements suck but these components are waveform seekbars, not spectrogram visualizers. If I used streaming audio more than to quickly test something, I'd probably be more willing to hack together something.
General - (fb2k) / Re: Tag field for named set of tracks
Last post by Florian -
If you're using ID3v2.4, I'd go with "SET SUBTITLE" (in fb2k) or "SETSUBTITLE" (in Mp3tag)

It's mapped to the TSST ID3v2.4 frame which is, according to the spec, intended for the subtitle of the part of a set this track belongs to.
Support - (fb2k) / Re: Thread count for the converter should be selectable from the converter window

And he is suggesting that foobar2000's converter automate the process of converting to a faster storage medium, then move the resulting file set to the destination. Sounds like a doable feature, maybe? Still needs a configuration option for where to store the converter output while operating, and what to do if the application crashes while conversion is happening. (Then it will also need to know what to do with partial or completely converted files in the configured directory on startup.)

It was a shotgun solution. It was that, or muck about reporting them to the VPN provider. Maybe I'll bother to do that, if the spam still exists in our database.
General - (fb2k) / Tag field for named set of tracks
Last post by j7n -
Does anybody use a tag field for a named set of tracks within a disc (substantially smaller group than a disc, maybe 4-10 tracks)?

For example: Rod Stewart - Atlantic Crossing consists of "Fast Half" and "Slow Half"
Or 2013 remaster of ABBA - Ring Ring has sections "Bonus Tracks" and "Extra Bonus Tracks - Early Versions"

I used the field "Grouping" for this, without researching its meaning within the Apple system, where it apparently is used for Genre or a classical work. Recently there was controversy around this tag, and I must change it to something else.

In Foobar I append Grouping after the album name to visually divide long list of tracks, as found on remasters or 2-on-1 composite reissues.
Support - (fb2k) / Network drive inaccessible after NAS wakeup, until accessed by Windows
Last post by rutra80 -
I keep all my music library on OpenMediaVault NAS sharing it with the desktop via SMB/CIFS mapped network drive. It puts itself to hybrid-sleep when it can't ping any home appliance (desktop, tv, laptops etc.). After I wake it up via WoL, fb2k can't access its SMB/CIFS share until I open it via Windows Explorer. Can't fb2k do something to see such a woken up share without accessing it via Windows first?
General Audio / Re: What lossy format to use for Bluetooth transfer?
Last post by molnart -
i hate trancoding because it puts more strain on hw (thus reduces battery life and performance for other tasks), reduces audio quality while technically it’s absolutely unnecessary - itrancoding exists only because somebody in the chain was too lazy to implement the standards properly (or agree on the standards). i also have the concern that audio may be reencoded even if both the input and output support the same format, because just f*ck it.
after reading further into the topic i came to the conclusion that i should just stick to the plain old cable and avoid wireless audio transfer whenever it’s possible, because even if it works, the implementation is technically poor.
