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

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.

General - (fb2k) / Re: What components does fb2k (64-bit) need to play high-res files?
Last post by GeorgeNJAudio -
> 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: https://sourceforge.net/projects/sacddecoder/files/macOS%20%2BWindows/foo_input_udsd/ ? 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.

MD5 doesn't seem reliable because it seems to also check metadata, rendering it useless.
MD5 on only the audio, not on the file! FLAC has it already - WavPack/TAK/OptimFROG can optionally write it. For everything else, use https://foobar.hyv.fi/?view=foo_audiomd5 , which will write an <AUDIOMD5> tag.
Caveat: MP3 files "must be" front-tagged, because how ffmpeg sometimes reading end-tags as audio. (foo_audiomd5 uses ffmpeg.) So remove ID3v1 from MP3s. ID3v2.3 is OK.

And if you don't want to fiddle with Javascript, Spider Monkey Panel has a Thumbs.js in the complete folder.

Having a border around the edge isn't remotely close to what was asked for. Read the first post again and look at the attached image in full size.

Also, I wrote Thumbs and most other scripts bundled with SMP. It should go without saying they're all included with JSP3. JSP3 also has the added bonus of being optimised for fb2k 2+/64bit/dark mode/many new features/bug fixes/etc.

edit: SMP is important for the scripts NOT included with it. Those writing their own may prefer the modern javascript it supports and 3rd party scripts from WilB/regor/etc.

Last post by Julero -
@pqyt I just installed foo_uie_webview v0.1.6.1-alpha1 and then v0.1.6.2-alpha2

It seems that even if I uncheck the Clear browsing data on startup box, it deletes the localStorage and I am using it to remember the layout of the chosen vu meter.

localStorage.setItem('vu_meter_type', vu_meter_type);

Let's see if you can solve it. A hug friend.
This problem has been solved, pqyt has no time in the past two days, I send a test version 0.1.6.3.a3

foo_uie_webview v0.1.6.3-alpha3

* New: In Private mode can be enabled in the Preferences dialog and is no longer enabled by default (alpha3).
* New:
  * Methods
    * GetArtwork(): Gets the embedded artwork (front / back / disc / icon / artist) from the current playing item.
       * The album art search patterns are used first. If no matching file can be found, the embedded artwork gets queried (alpha3).
* Changed: Updated the WebView2 SDK to the latest version (alpha3).

You can download it only from GitHub during testing.

Upgrading the SDK seemed to have stopped the crashes. Cross fingers.

Thank you very much partners. You are awesome.

It's already perfect. Maintains what is stored in localStorage.





Nice job. Thanks !!

I'm glad that you liked it. A hug friend. ;D

Does foobar's binary comparator only work on two tracks? I want to search for duplicate files, but I can't load this (which seems to support multiple) because it's a duplicate component. Can I just rename this one? MD5 doesn't seem reliable because it seems to also check metadata, rendering it useless.

And if you don't want to fiddle with Javascript, Spider Monkey Panel has a Thumbs.js in the complete folder.
Can Crop (two methods), Stretch, or Center. Thumbs can be turned off leaving just the art... also supports a custom folder (+titleformat support) with cycle option if more than one image contained, sort order alphabetic or by modified date-time, Last.FM artist art, and some other (useful?) options
Installation fairly similar, but instead of a button, right-click the panel you dropped it in, choose configure and select the script from the dropdown in top.

So looking at that, you've not even tried the mouse wheel option I added. What a waste of time that was.

Highest vs lowest...



Don't like it? Old versions are here...

No its not like that. There are simply skins in which, in my opinion, the photo with blur looks worse and the background matched to the color of the skin is better, as here:

with blur: https://imgbox.com/Mckun8Rd

without blur: https://imgbox.com/JNmiCybA

The function of reducing and increasing the blur intensity is absolutely ok and it fits in some skins.
In my opinion, it should be an option to turn blur on/off.
