AAC - General / Re: "Lossless" AAC sample rate adjust?
Last post by greynol -
Of the tests I've seen, transcoding with AAC isn't a perceptible problem; nothing at all like the wise internet parrots make it out to be.

The updates was supposed to be automatic since Vista or later... I'm not sure. Windows is not very clear in the error message as usual. I wouldn't put much effort into this, and possibly break something else in the process.

I can also play the streams if I add in Foobar to Advanced preferences -> Networking -> Suppress HTTPS cerificate checks for domains

Тo play other radio streams than Deluxe, just change the last number, or see what they all are on the Icecast page, where you can get an m3u with a click.

Try removing https and chaning the port to use plain HTTP like so:

Many Thanks !! that worked :)

There is probably an issue with SSL certificates with the site or in your operating system (Internet Explorer). Maybe Windows needs updated root cerificates.
Issue with the operating system. They work here. Check your certificates against the secure stream link above.

How can I update the root certificates? I checked some MS Support articles but I don't get what the're writing...
an then:
On the above page there's a bunch of links and tools and I have no idea which one to take.

Is there an easy n00b guide for the certificate update procedure?

Many thanks in advance

60 fps has been the default. The update logic has been a bit different from zao's original version but I don't think it should affect stuttering.

Do you have some visualizations or anything else weird in the UI? Once you hit stop or pause the component draws a few frames and then stops the refresh timer. Minibar at that point won't consume any CPU or GPU resources.
I replicated the state update bug, btw. I'll get it fixed but perhaps not today. Movie night.

Hello Dear musicmusic,
I'm happy to use Columns UI, I really like it, thanks for your work!
And I would like to offer one improvement.
Could you realize the possibility of viewing the full contents of the MOD/XM sample list in the window "Item properties" of CUI as in XMPlay (See attach XMP pic).
Now all the sample text is not visible in the window only if you select the function properties (See attach Foobar CUI).

Thank You.
Best Regards.

Hi, I made an account to reply to this thread.

I was also having issues with running milkdrop through shpeck on Windows 10 Pro x64, getting crashes after clicking the Configure button in Shpeck's Preferences.
It's working now, and the issue appeared to be the install location. Try changing the directory from the %appdata% subdirectory, as recommended by most guides, to another folder (e.g. Program Files x86/foobar2000/winamp).

Since Viktor's guide is 404'd at the time of posting, I recommend following this guide. It has the relevant links for the latest milkdrop package too.

I did not get the errors the author got in his guide. In any case, I think this will solve the issue for a lot of people.

Also, I installed the DirectX 9.0c runtime I acquired from filehippo, but I'm not sure if that's needed.

Good luck and enjoy them pretty colours.

Ugh, I messed up and forgot to copy my Foobar install before I wiped and re-installed 10 on this newly built PC I have. I have done everything here, and MilkDrop runs, but it crashes Foobar when I hit configure. Doesn't matter where I stick the winamp dir. FML

How to add a checksum in the program settings?

GoaLitiuM, if you wish to give a shot to my modfied version of Minibar its latest version has configurable frame rate and it stops screen updates when playback is paused or stopped.
This is much better! How fast did it used to update before the change? It stutters much less now than before (about the same as foo_wave_seekbar in GDI mode), but there doesn't seem to be any difference with 5fps vs 60fps for the stuttering. Both plugins still stutter when the playback is paused though, and sometimes the minibar doesn't refresh the view when transitioning from paused to stopped state.
Support - (fb2k) / [Q] Releasing Snap Package on Linux
Last post by mmtrt -
Hi I've been running this alright, so I have created various Linux packages like [ .deb .AppImage .snap ] of foobar2000 working good and this has some issues of sound cracking some times but not that bad.
So I am asking for permission if I can distribute it to public if not that's OK I can understand.

Anyway thanks.

Porcus, that's extreme audiophilia :P
What? I thought it was the other way around: your .wav files sound better if played back as administrator? :-p
