foobar2000 mobile / Cannot add custom skins - 1.4
Last post by ms1602 -
Do custom skins work for you? When I try to add something, nothing happens. I have version 1.4 build#783.

Edit. Ok, I know, the application does not load skins from the SD card, only from the default memory.

According to the paper, LZMA2 is better than FLAC at compressing the LibriSpeech corpus on normal settings(Chunk Size ∞) on 16kHz mono 16bit. LZMA2 is 29.9%, FLAC 30.9%. Can it be true?
Weird. The downloaded FLAC files are around 139 kbit/s, but uncompressed should be 256 since they are mono.

flac 1.4.3 -8b1024
317449945 bytes
-b1024 should be a good fit, if I understood correctly (and from the above, obviously I don't).
Apparently they took 2048 bytes chunks, and with mono 16 bits that corresponds to 1024 samples.

Flex DSP (foo_flex_dsp)

File name and component name changed from Dynamic DSP.
Dynamic DSP settings are the same. Intuitive to use.

Listening Tests / Re: Personal blind comparison of the Bluetooth codec, AAC and SBC and LC3.
Last post by magicgoose -
IMO it's important to note that FDK-AAC, and the AAC encoders actually used in the wild specifically for Bluetooth, can be different like night and day. 
I have an Android phone where if you choose AAC bluetooth codec (or, more accurately - forget to un-choose it, since it's the default where it's supported), it sounds abysmal, with obvious artifacts when there are e.g. busy electric guitars and a drum kit.
General - (fb2k) / can I change dsp for some albums?
Last post by francesco -
there are different amps , for my ears marantz do sound to bright and with more treble for some album and denon sounds better for my ears for some albums , onkio and so on

would be nice to have the possibility to change EQ or other settings for albums , according the amps
I have searched aroung and i have found only Dynamic DSP v2
I have posted here ,because
1) i have't understood how does Dynamic DSP v2  work , i guess Dynamic DSP v2.1.1.3 it's the last version
I can't find a tutorial

2) outside Dynamic DSP v2.1.1.3 is there another way to change dsp according playlist or mostly albums

foobar2000 mobile / Re: 1.4 - almost all playlists say "untitled"
Last post by Peter -
I'm afraid this is a side effect of removal of support for Android filesystem sandbox.

The music folders need re-adding and the playlists need re-creating.

I understand that re-creation of playlists might take a lot of work, so please don't delete them yet. I simply overlooked the issue of playlists referencing old locations, I will investigate a workaround to fix your playlists automatically in the next update
