I run a portable instalation of Foobar2000 v.2.0 32bits in wine and the best for me is that I can make playlists and access in my foobar2000 in a Android TV.

I'm not quite sure how that would work in practice, considering that if you open a CUE sheet the media file is split up into separate playlist entries already.

Is there some sort of ancillary scheme where you have a bundled-but-unused CUE sheet or other kind of markers in custom metadata, and is it a common/standard concept or something personal?

I always recommend to all users to make a portable foobar installation, I do not see any advantage to use a standard installation, only disadvantages.
I'm also using all other programs portable if it's available.

With portable foobar:
- You have a clean file structure, i.e only one foobar folder.
- You can copy your portable foobar to USB-sticks and have it in your pocket ready to play at your friends house or on a party ( DJ ).
- You can always move your portable foobar where you like.
- You can have as many portable foobar installations as you want, i.e you can have for one portable install a different theme
   installed, or you can have multiple profile folders in one portable foobar, e.g if you want to switch themes, rename profile folders
   ( profile_georgia-reborn, profile_georgia, profile_eole, profile_darkone ) and if you want to currently use one, just rename it to profile.
- When updating to a new foobar version, just install the latest foobar as portable and copy and replace all new files to your existing portable foobar.

As you can see there are many different approaches how you can use portable foobar.


3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Can/How foo_musicbrainz write Picard Musicbrainz Tags ?
Last post by fuffi -
Hi All,

I'm trying foo_musicbrainz (v0.5.0, Build: 23:52:56, Feb 23 2023) and figured out, that the tags written by this component are different to the tags Picard writes.

That leads to a completely ignoring of those tags when you put those music files into a mediaplayer, say Plex, which reads those tags.

In the screenshot the upper tags are written by the component
and the lower tags are written by Picard.

Is there a way to let the component write Picard like tags, so they will be recognozed by software confirmed to work with musicbrainz tags ?

Thank you!

Ok I figured out that with crtl P on layout it snaps back into place by selecting Georgia ReBORN.

There will also be reasons to leave, but understand that if one by mistake sets default and does not know how to enter preference, the average user never returns to the main layout.

To avoid this, I deleted the default layout.

the method I'm describing below, is basically the same as I've mentioned in my last post about restoring the foo_ui_columns.dll.cfg.
But if you change the Columns UI layout to default, you can hit CTRL+P to go to
foobar's preferences > Display > Columns UI > Layout
From the active preset drop down menu select Georgia-ReBORN and click OK.

I don't know why would you do that, but the normal user shouldn't change it in the first place...
