When you create or reply to a message, below the message window is a bar that says "Add files by dragging & dropping or selecting them."  Click on "selecting them" and browse to the image(s) you want to attach.

Are you doing this:

1.  Right-click file in the playlist and choose "Openlyrics -> search for lyrics (manually)"

2.  Search starts automatically; check for "Genius" in the "Source" column of the search box;  clicking it will the display the lyrics from Genius.

I have played arround with viewing album art and embeded art, sometimes the trick is renaming the album art image to whatever is standard for foobar without any extra components added, i dont remember the exact naming or file format used, but its a good question.

Hey friends, I'm using OpenLyrics 1.9 with the newest Foobar install (just started using Foobar)
It says that it can pull the lyrics from Genius as a source but when I manually search lyrics, Genius never shows up even though Googling it shows Genius does have lyrics for all these songs. Am I doing something wrong? This is what my Foobar panel looks like in Preferences. I didn't see how to attach images to the post, sorry.

Try it here first

Super Audio CD Decoder (foo_input_sacd.dll)

ASIO+DSD support (foo_out_asio+dsd.dll)

1. foobar2000 Preferences > Tools > SACD > Output (per device) DSD+PCM or DSD > Sampleate 384000
2. Output: ASIO+DSD:  ASIO Driver Select

I'm worried because it's not compatible with the iFi Audio driver.

Is it possible to choose to completely turn off blur in thumbs? That is, go back to the previous version.

Another question is it possible to align the image to the top and bottom of the panel? What I mean is, as I marked with arrows in the screenshot, so that the above and below are covered while maintaining the proportions:
While Mark decides whether to activate or deactivate the transparency I can recommend the following:

Press Shift+windows right click on the cover. In the context menu select Edit Properties
The value of the mouse wheel ranges from 0,2 to 0,8 but you can modify it in the item 2K3.THUMBS.BLUR.OPACITY type the value 0,001.
The Background should be set to 0, 0, 0 so that the transparency disappears.

Does foobar's binary comparator only work on two tracks?

Nope. If you had 2 copies of the same album, you can add them both a playlist, one after another. If an example consisted of 10 tracks, track 1 would be compared against track 11, track 2 against 12 etc. So long as the entire selection is even numbered, there is no limit.

Yeah, you are right of course.. You cannot compare A to itself - that's one request of mine to save myself from my errors - but yes you can compare AB, AC. And AB, BC, CD, DE, EF, FG.

> I'm also a lunatic audiophile, and will use my fb2k install to play a lot of high-res files including DXD 384 and DSD.

Super Audio CD Decoder (foo_input_sacd.dll)
ASIO+DSD support (foo_out_asio+dsd.dll)

I believe you are already using these components to play DSD and PCM.
Then you should already be using the expensive USB DAC AMP + Headphone.

Are you not satisfied with that?

I am but I am trying to load fb2k 64-bit onto a new laptop

You have a desktop PC equipped with audio peripherals, right?
yes, but not in my Main Rig. That's as in item 2 below.

1. Question: I'm assuming I should get those files -- Super Audio CD Decoder (foo_input_sacd.dll) and ASIO+DSD support (foo_out_asio+dsd.dll) --from: ? Or?
2. I have an iFi Pro iDSD DAC; digital feed from HP Pavilion 15 Laptop 8GB RAM and (soon) Lenovo T240 Laptop 32GB RAM Win 11 64-bit; AKG 701 cans; Arion Audio MK 1000 monoblocks; Magnepan LRS loudspeakers. And the sound, according to me and my friends from the NJ Audio Society, is wonderful. I'm looking fwd to hearing what difference the Lenovo T240 Laptop w 32GB RAM will make to the sound. Thank you, Ken! Also the HPP Pavilion is too sluggish and gives me performance problems, so I'm replacing it with the T240.
