General Audio / Re: EAC hangs on a particular CD
Last post by DVDdoug -

…  I was hoping to produce a 100%-log copy.
That's probably not going to happen...  Cue Tools can sometimes make a repair but if ripping freezes, probably not.

I assume the CD plays OK?  If not you can legitimately return it.

If it plays OK, you can make an analog copy of the one-bad track.   (I assume tracks 33 & 34 are OK when ripped separately?)     Audiograbber has analog ripping built-in, but it's been years since I've used it.   A couple of times, I've bought the MP3 when I couldn't rip the CD.  Or, you could look for a used CD.

...I never "feel good" when I can't make a perfect copy but if it sounds OK, after awhile I can't even remember which files are imperfect...

Opus / What is the deal with 5.1(back)?
Last post by Luke M -
As far as I know, 5.1 in movies and music is always 5.1(side). Where is 5.1(back) used? And why is this Bizarro 5.1 the only 5.1 supported by Opus?

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: To wishlist: foobar2000 graph builder plugin?
Last post by mjm716 -
I would love to see something like this as well - I think the description of graphs doesn't really sell the potential application - basically enabling visualization of foobar playback statistics.

Fooscrobble is certainly popular, while lastFM is a husk of it's former glory - I would love to leave it entirely if Foobar could fill that data crunching niche.

My own idea was to at least add a formatting function(s) to simplify the maths:
$items(%field%) $subitems(%field%)

The data seems to already exist, yet remain trapped in Facets/foo_(enhanced_)playcount.

General - (fb2k) / Re: foobar2000 safe mode ?
Last post by wcs13 -
This may look a dialogue of the deaf, and like I said (but people don't listen) I won't be addressing any personal remarks not (stupid) comments. Nevermind.

You don't want to hear this but IMO the best way to protect your files is to use access rights and give the suspicious user only read access.
I have heard that. I know it may work. Technically it's not a solution but a workaround : a way to mitigate foobar's lack of functionality on this matter, by using something that has nothing to do with foobar. Not very elegant. But yes, a workaround, so always better than nothing.  :)

  • Give her a copy of your library.
Have you read the part where I state that my library is about 6 TB total ?

  • Setup a simple UPNP server.
Another workaround. Which doesn't mean that I won't resort to that eventually. We'll see.

General - (fb2k) / Re: reverse stereo channels
Last post by ragg987 -
Ref reversed channels, my workaround (for now) is to use the reverse channels option in DSP.

In case it helps, I attach the console output as well as the description.xml from from the SoTM SMS-200.
192.168.1.187 is the SoTM renderer
192.168.1.11 is the Windows host
