3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: foo_wave_seekbar
Last post by GoaLitiuM -
GoaLitiuM, if you wish to give a shot to my modfied version of Minibar its latest version has configurable frame rate and it stops screen updates when playback is paused or stopped.
This is much better! How fast did it used to update before the change? It stutters much less now than before (about the same as foo_wave_seekbar in GDI mode), but there doesn't seem to be any difference with 5fps vs 60fps for the stuttering. Both plugins still stutter when the playback is paused though, and sometimes the minibar doesn't refresh the view when transitioning from paused to stopped state.

Support - (fb2k) / [Q] Releasing Snap Package on Linux
Last post by mmtrt -
Hi I've been running this alright, so I have created various Linux packages like [ .deb .AppImage .snap ] of foobar2000 working good and this has some issues of sound cracking some times but not that bad.
So I am asking for permission if I can distribute it to public if not that's OK I can understand.

Anyway thanks.

Porcus, that's extreme audiophilia :P
What? I thought it was the other way around: your .wav files sound better if played back as administrator? :-p

Perhaps there is. The DAC does have a tube rectifier as you mention.

You have a few others, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whitespace_character , maybe there is one in the Related whitespace characters without Unicode character property "WSpace=Y" section that does not show as box.

Yet another alternative: fill up the end with a lot of ordinary spaces, so the horizontal line to the right will be gone, for every entry - making them all "look the same".

Hm, Is it possible to simply read headers, and then go to the very end of the file and read it from the back? And make the seekbar works backwards? Of course for all those emulated formats still full decode and caching would be necessary...

Thats not how input services in fb2k's ecosystem work. The reverse decoder is simply a proxy which decodes files with the input services registered, reverses the samples, and then plays that temp file back.

Theres no way to force input decoders to go backwards.

Thanks again, I indeed disabled this option as I knew I wouldn't want to tag files with foobar!

You will find all those things by Shift+right click.

Non-fb2k tip:
If you do not want any other applications to touch your file timestamps, then give the file ownership to some other user (Administrator would be the lazy choice), and give your default user merely read access. Then run Mp3tag as administrator.

This is exactly what I wanted, Porcus.

However, this zero width space displays as a box on my system in most fonts, including on the Wikipedia page. It works with Lucida Sans Unicode, and Adobe fonts, which I don't want to use.

I have come up with a solution using Thin Space and Hair Space characters next to it, which are 1 pixel wide. And to my surprise, there already is a crc32() function in Foobar.

Code: [Select]
$replace($select($add($mod($crc32([%releaseflags%][%releasedate%][%releasetype%][%label%][%catalognumber%][%media%][%__codec%]),16),1),0000,0001,0010,0011,0100,0101,0110,0111,1000,1001,1010,1011,1100,1101,1110,1111),0,$char(8201),1,$char(8202))

ESplaylist is good. I like the artwork display, and the grouping works as you say. But I cannot replace the normal playlist with it. I currently have about 20 customized columns for the default interface, which I display and hide as needed. There appears to be no way of saving them in ESplaylist. Once I "delete" a column by right-clicking on it, it is gone.

What's in a name, but ... a name foo_input_bar suggests it provides a way to decode some format/codec <bar>.
