3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: foo_discogs
Last post by ricecake -
Hi, I am trying to get your plugin working on my system. I am running Windows Vista. I have installed the TLS 1.2 patches and enabled them on my system, but I still get authentication errors. However, I can successfully authenticate when manually sending OAuth commands using curl. I took some packet captures and from what I can find, even though TLS 1.2 is enabled on my system, Vista does not support the "modern" ciphers needed (as listed here:, which is what is causing the authentication to fail.

From what I understand, curl and other browsers (besides Internet Explorer) use their own crypto libraries and thus are not directly dependent on what the OS provides or supports.

Not being familiar with the foobar plugin architecture, would it be possible to use e.g. libcurl for network communications instead of the built-in Windows libraries?

Also, does the plugin really need to use OAuth Authentication, or would it be possible to use Discogs Authentication? It looks like it wouldn't need the user to generate their own tokens, so the plugin should work right out of the box.

Thanks for any insight!
Lossless / Other Codecs / Re: 24 bit WMA Lossless decoding broken in Windows 10 1809

See if adding this compatibility section breaks freac.
No, that didn't make a difference. Also tested 32 vs. 64 bit and GCC vs. MSVC build - no difference either.
I'd do it myself but, while I get everything to build for freac, or so it seems (tagidv2 or something failed to compile -- my guess that is not important; I'm using vs2019rc2), there are no decoders available.  wma comes up as, Error: unknown file type.  I have no idea what to do.  The exes, smooth, and boca dlls, including wma enc/dec/tag, are in the same directory.
All the BoCA DLLs should go to a boca subfolder. At least the WMA encoder and Media Foundation decoder should be usable then. Most other codec's need their own DLLs which need to be built separately.
P.S.  Saw you guessing at wma-ll file type -
Ah, yes, thanks for pointing me at this. Checking the sub-type is way better, of course. Will change it. I copied this over from the old WMFormat based decoder - it should probably be changed there as well.

Thank you Gentlemen.
This option was not in Foobar until i updated to latest version.
I can confirm it works like a charm and all my Headphone swipe controls work as they should.

Now for my next trick i am trying playing about with a program called Voicebot so i can activate Key Macro's with voice activation through the Mic in my Bluetooth Headphones to navigate folders, playlists ect within Foobar :)
3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: iPod manager

The component only tracks files in your local media library passively. In other words, it may lose track of what the local file on your computer corresponding to a file on the iPod is if the local file moves.

From a quick look, the logic looks more primitive than I remember. I thought it made an effort to track files even if they moved by using the modification date, file size and metadata, but as far as I can see that logic is limited to working out which files to sync. That will probably compound the problem as if the file is moved it may realise it doesn't need to be resynced, but then lose the link to the original file for playback statistics purposes.

Having said all of that, according to Playback Statistics uses metadata to track statistics, and metadata will always be available from the track on the iPod. If it is indeed using that, it would only fail if the fields mentioned had been edited locally.
