3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: SimPlaylist (foo_simplaylist)
Last post by Monno -
Now that I've tried the stock playlist on version 2 I gotta say the the ability to assign playlist views to specific playlists is a huge game changer for me.

Honestly, I love the unique features that SimPlaylist has but there's only a handful of them (group stats, sub-groups, sticky group headers when scrolling, etc). It would be better if the stock playlist just incorporated these few handful of SimPlaylist features rather than reviving (and maintaining) a dead component.

I agree. We need groups, aggregate stats, and sticky headers in the default playlist.

I happen to have a Japan/CBS edition of Billy Joel's "52nd Street", but I'm not sure if it's from that first catalog titles. Mine has this catalog number: CDCBS 83181. I bought it as my first CD (sic!) in April 1984 from my first salery (along with a decent Yamaha CD player) and it still plays & looks pristine.
Support - (fb2k) / Foobar problem with channel mapping when playing 4.1 or 5.0 files.
Last post by wojak -
Hi, I already described my problem here:,123098.msg1016922/topicseen.html#new
but now I think that it is not an encoding problem but Foobars problem with proper channel mapping of "uncommon" channels, like 5.0 and 4.1.
The problem is that whenever I play such files (5.0 or 4.1) with foobar (1.6.12, windows10) with exclusive "wasapi" via HDMI to my Onkyo AVR, front left, front right, back left and back right channels play properly but the LFE channel (of 4.1 stream) plays improperly in both Center and SUB speakers (simulaneously). The same goes to Center channel (of 5.0 stream) - it plays both in Center and SUB speakers simulatneously.
There is no problem with "common" channels - such as 2.0, 4.0 and 5.1.
The problem does not depend on file extension nor codec - I tried MPL, WAV, FLAC and WavPack. All of those files play wrong when the files are 4.1 or 5.0. Those files (except for WAVs) play properly in MPC-HC player - Center is only in Center and LFE is only in SUB.
Could this be fixed in Foobar?
