3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: foo_vis_spectrum_analyzer
Last post by StuPC -
Thanks so much for all your hard work on this, it keeps getting better and better!

Is there functionality for users to save and share their setups so they can be imported into other foobar installs?
I would love to try out some of the ones being discussed on here (without having to individually adjusting all the settings).

I don't have that level of control over her.
So it's her problem, not yours.  Stop trying to be so helpful.  Give advice when and if asked, but let the next generation work out their own problems.

But the developer has written the iPhone version of the Foobar app so he or she must surely be able to answer my question. If she or he is reading this thread, I'd be grateful if they could reply. If they aren't, how can I contact them?
Suppose you wrote some popular software, and were giving it away for free.  How much of your personal free time would you want to dedicate to personally supporting thousands of users?

A user forum is one way to address that, by creating a self-help group.  Peter will be along if he wants to be, when he wants to be, if he decides it's needed and worth his time.  Patience!

Wonder why that happens  :-\
It's Microsoft trying to protect naive users from installing potentially harmful / fraudulent software from non-Microsoft sources.  Naive users might still ignore the warnings if the scammer on the phone tells them to, but at least they can't claim not to have had a warning.

I get a similar problem with Chrome refusing to connect to non-https websites unless you jump through hoops each time, as if the thousands of http websites are automatically compromised.

My reaction to your enquiry, as would be many people's, is that FB2K is free so what's stopping you testing it for yourself?

I don't have access to an iPhone. My niece lives 500 miles away and my phone runs Android.

This is how!

The problem is that Apple enforces data segregation, and allows its own built-in or installable apps a lot more freedom than third-party apps.  This is becoming an issue with Android too.  It's about security: they can't exhaustively test that every app submitted to the relevant app store is going to be well-behaved under all circumstances, so they all get sand-boxed.

In addition, Apple are very keen on enforcing media copyright, so it's not straightforward moving mp3s around.

My reaction to your enquiry, as would be many people's, is that FB2K is free so what's stopping you testing it for yourself?  The majority here (including me) only use FB2K on PCs under Windows, or under Linux using Wine, so there is not an extensive experience with iOS or Android.

I'm inclined to suggest your niece would be better off deleting all the cat videos and social media apps, making storage available for her music.  We all have to learn where to make compromises.

General - (fb2k) / Regarding the component RAM-Disk 1.0
Last post by Asimov500 -
Hi all,

Forgive me if I have posted in the wrong section as this is my first post.
There is a plugin called RAM-Disk which loads the song into memory.

I would love to use this plugin, but it is only 32bit and I have a 64bit OS.
Is there anyway of getting the source code, so I can re-compile it to 64bit?

regards
Asimov
