I don't understand what happened.... My experience is that by default if you double-click to open any file it clears whatever your last playlist was. So I never use foobar as an "ad-hoc" player and always drag/drop the file/cuesheet to the playlist where I want it

C87P66:  You don't have to let it clear your last playlist when you open a file!  Just go to Preferences/Shell Integration and check the box  "Always send files to new playlist: ('default', or whatever you put there)."  That way your original playlists stay the same, just don't make any regular playlists with the same name you place here (which is always cleared the next time you open a file):



So you can indeed use Foobar as your "ad-hoc" player also--enjoy!

Haha nice! Thanks!!

Thank you for all of your hard work, kgena_ua. This component is one of my favorites! Also, I'm not sure where to post bug reports but I hope its alright to post the fix here. If there is no active internet connection and the biography is not cached, then a crash occurs. Here is a screenshot of the error:

The fix was to replace this line (around line 549, use control+f to search):
Code: [Select]
if (this.xmlhttp != null && this.func != null) {if (this.xmlhttp.readyState == 4) {if (this.xmlhttp.status == 200) this.func(); else {this.on_search_done_callback(artist, list, done, handles);}}}
with this line:
Code: [Select]
    
this.on_state_change = function() {
if (this.xmlhttp != null && this.func != null) {
if (this.xmlhttp.readyState == 4) {
if (this.xmlhttp.status == 200) {
this.func();
} else {
if (this.on_search_done_callback != null) {
this.on_search_done_callback(artist, list, done, handles);
}
}
}
}
}
Now, the null check prevents the script from crashing and instead displays placeholder text. Attached are images of each event. Also, GetColour() works on the current version of JScript Panel. That error only affects older versions.

I'm back!
Much to everyone's chagrin I daresay!

I'm still absolutely certain I must have missed a simple aspect which could make Foobar2000 a viable piece of software as it used to be, but I'm still hoping someone can tell me what it is.

Even though I can't get new additions into order, I never really solved that, I've been 'making do' with Foobar for the time being: stopping what else I may be doing at the end of every song to click specifically on each next song in the order they should be in etc., but this evening I needed to listen to a piece of audio from the internet - I was asked whether I wanted to save the file or open it in another piece of software and I reluctantly selected Foobar2000...

Having listenned to the recording of the Common pipistrelle bat, to my satisfaction (I'm into bats & was testing out a new detector, what of it?), I now can't get access to anything else. Everything else is there, listed down the left-hand side, but when I select 'Library' - 'Album list', the list just flashes blue a couple of times & leaves me no further forward - I can't actually select anything, or ideally select everything. At least my old copy of Foobar had a 'Library' tab amongst the playlists...

?

The frustrating thing is that searches on Google/Duck Duck Go suggest that Foobar is still the highest rated free audio player and yet my copy is, still, bizarrely unworkable. I'll try a complete remove & reinstall in a day or so, when I get the chance, but if that doesn't help what do I go with? (No prizes for saying WinAmp or iPlayer, thanks!)?

Thanks for your time again.

So I never use foobar as an "ad-hoc" player and always drag/drop the file/cuesheet to the playlist where I want it and keep it there. If you just want a simple music player maybe WMP would suffice?... Or if you really want the functionalities of Foobar2000, I would suggest you drag/drop every time you want to play a new file. Just my personal experience...

For a music player, I think Foobar2000 does its job very well. Wide range of functionalities/plugins. Clean interface so I don't get distracted by anything other than the music, and customizable if you want something more fancy. Nothing else really appealed more to me... Again, not a pro at foobar just some thoughts from yet another user. :)

Opus / Re: Can anyone reliably ABX OPUS at 160kbps?
Last post by polemon -
Then there's people using Opus in real-time over a fixed-bandwidth wireless link (e.g. DECT, possibly Bluetooth too). You'd be surprised to see all the places Opus ends up in.
DECT, really? I've only seen DECT (DECT-GAP) using G.726. Is there some commercial product that uses Opus for DECT?
DECT uses 32kb/s, so it sounds quite sensible to use Opus for that.
