Notice

Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: foo_onewaysync

Hi!
I've encountered a problem with file names. If there is any whitespace in the file or directory name right before a dot, it would be copied without that space. If there are several dots, there will be "_" symbols replacing some of the dots. That renaming happens regardless of how I get the text, from %filename% or %title%.
For example:
2007 ''Auļos...''/01. Ievads - bites un bungas.mp3 -> 2007 ''Auļos__.''/01. Ievads - bites un bungas.mp3
2005 ''Sounds of Pain...''/04. Sounds of Pain....flac -> 2005 ''Sounds of Pain__.''/04. Sounds of Pain__..flac
1997 ''Sol Niger Within''/22. Magickal Theatre .33.flac -> 22. Magickal Theatre.33.flac

File names are important for me, because I export my own playlists from foobar that use all my library, and these songs are missing when playing the playlists on phone because of wrong file names.

What can I do to prevent renaming files like that when I use OneWaySync?

My titleformatting script:
$right($directory_path(%path%),$sub($len($directory_path(%path%)),9))\%filename%

Thanks!

Support - (fb2k) / Re: Limit drive speed while reading (but not while ripping or scanning)
Last post by kode54 -
Write speed has nothing to do with read speed. And the limit of 1x is only applied by the OS when playing the CDs digitally using legacy methods. Digital extraction directly, like what most rippers and digital players do on their own, is not constrained by any read speed limits unless the software specifically requests it.

And last I checked, most drives can only be restricted to a minimum of 2x audio read speed anyway, hence why 2x would be a better choice, or at least, asking the drive what its lowest audio extraction speed is and setting it when playing back.

The thing is, back when this was first requested, inputs did not have a flag to indicate when they were being used for real time playback or not. This feature is actually feasible for Peter to implement now.

I voted +9 to the reputation of that file, however. You may also freely report it to any of the AV engines you wish, but none of the major ones I care about need reporting at this time. I also spotted who I think is Case voting on it, and it's his own pack. I added him to my trusted users on the VirusTotal community, so he should have slightly more clout now. I'll have even more if he adds me back.
