General - (fb2k) / change directory of a playlist items
Last post by FabPan -
I changed the folders where I have stored my audio files. Now the playlists don't work any more.

Is there any way to rename the folders in the playlists, apart from inserting again every single track in the playlist?

My playlists are in fpl format. Most of the audio files are multi-track flac file.
Convertion of the playlist into m3u cannot be used because m3u seems non able to address the single track in a multi-track file.

Thanks for any help

Support - (fb2k) / Feature Request: Dynamic Playlist Files
Last post by MinorKey -

It would be really neat if it was possible to save dynamic/auto playlists (playlists with filter queries) to files. Adding a new auto playlist file format shouldn't be too difficult as essentially the only thing such a playlist would contain is the filter query.

I have a pretty complex query that excludes all live recordings from my media library, but if I accidentally close the playlist I have to enter the query again into the filter box. I currently keep a text file with the query around for this scenario, but having a directly launchable file would be much better. If you don't think that introducing a new file format is a good idea, another option could be adding the option to make auto playlists unclosable (on a playlist to playlist basis) to the properties of auto playlists, but I guess that this would make things complicated, perhaps even unnecessarily so.

Many thanks and have fun! :-)

Amazing. Great job @zeremy . That's all I have to say. ;)

Dumb question maybe : how to hide the File menu ? I thought menus couldn't be hidden with DUI. Is that why you bundled CUI with your package ? And how to hide it then ?
MPC / Re: Do Musepack's inherently fast decoding speeds still mean anything?

Yes, as I suspected, said low numbers are not something to toot one's own horn about anymore.

At least when it comes to the Foobar app's own decoding tests, I also concur with Opus being apparently, easy on power consumption.
Not to mention that, in terms of the ever-variable storage space in phones (say, when you shoot many videos) Opus's files' tiny footprint is a more-than-welcomed "feature".
AAC - General / Re: Open Source Fraunhofer AAC Encoder (fdk-aac)
Last post by nu774 -
I've having a feeling that my deliberate attitude has become a wrong message regarding fdk-aac, so lets' make it clear.
fdk-aac is nothing special compared to other patented codecs.
ffmpeg also treats libfdk-aac dependency as "non-free" which might look something special. However, it's not because libfdk-aac will bite you but because it's simply the license of libfdk-aac is not considered to be (L)GPL compliant.

For instance, if you think you cannot freely distribute libfdk-aac binary because it's patented, then you should not be able to distribute any software that include decoder of patented codec (including ffmpeg, most of the media players or audio players) or something like that.
