I'm mixing the two because mobile is only version of foobar2000 I have access to. I do not have a Microsoft Windows system. I am strictly CentOS 7 and Android.

I get that the Android version of Foobar2000 can not have plugins, that's okay - I still am very appreciative that it plays .mka out of the box and correctly interprets the tags.

With the desktop version that I can not try, since it seems that plugins for timed lyrics handle .SRT streams in a .mka file - then the feature I am asking for is already available via a plugin.

As such, nothing needs to be done.

Thank you for your time and I apologize for the confusion.

If it is possible to mark this topic solved, how do I do so?

Code: [Select]
- FIX: Improved handling of utf8 files without BOM. This affects files loaded
       via the PREPROCESSOR section and the Configuration window>Tools>Import button.
       They should now be treated the same as files with BOM.
Mike, thanks for posting your findings. I guess the EAC veterans already know this, but finding something out for your self is always different. I think I can be happy with my settings then.
AAC - Tech / Re: meaning of technical terms in Nero aac and fdk aac
Last post by polemon -
Is Nero aac inferior than fdk aac. Which of opus, aac(m4a) produce smallest file size for music.
When it comes to file sizes, it's impossible to answer. You'd have to create a test sample, such that it is transparent for your setup, use-case, etc.
Then, you can have a look at the file size. On average, file sizes between Apple AAC and Opus seem to be similar for a stereo track. At least in my cases.

As for Nero AAC vs. Fdk AAC, here are some listening tests by other users:

I'm not sure whether Nero AAC still sees maintenance, though. However, I'd simply make a short ABX test yourself if I were you, etc.

I'd give yourself a margin, when it comes to size differences, though. When the difference in file sizes is in the single digits percent wise, I'd deem them equal.

Also note, that it's down to the settings, you can actually make very large files, which sound horrible, by using a rather unfortunate combination of settings. So be wary of that, should you try to tweak them, etc.

Reproduced, thanks. Subsongs (playable_location::get_subsong) in MP4 are zero-based, when in MKV they are 1-based, so we have one chapter behind. With that said, there seems to be no reliable approach to get correct offset. But anyway, some ugly fix is doable.

UPD: removed incorrect observation.
CD Hardware/Software / Re: Software that handles write samples offset

Looks like not a lot of folks concerned with burning CDs these days. I guess I shouldn't be surprised...
Yesterday I conducted the same test that you did MinorKey. I obtained the same exact results for all three options as well. The only difference I saw was the time it took to read the gaps, with Secure taking longer than both Inaccurate and Accurate.

I've managed to prevent the bug from happening by removing "bHandled = FALSE" from OnLButtonUp method (PropertyList.h:605).

Doing that results in crazy buggy behaviour.  :o  :o 
Audio Hardware / Re: need good cable for line out ->amply

Unfortunately Monoprice have fallen from grace as far as I'm concerned. I got some of their USB-C cables, and they look great, but were so terrible at voltage dropping that I had to return them. Great customer service though, they just let me keep them instead and refunded. After that, engineers Nathan K and "USB vigilante" Benson Leung (who works at Google doing USB-C stuff) tested them properly and found the same thing, rating them very poorly.

And looking back, the Lightning cables I bought from them are also wonky, charging much slower (this was before MFi though IIRC). Their audio cables might be simpler and less prone to failure, but I just don't trust them anymore.

I used to really like Blue Jeans Cable, but I haven't bought from them in years, and they do specialize in A/V.
