foobar2000 for Mac / Re: foobar2000 for Mac: bugs & wishes
Last post by godzfire -
Just downloaded Foobar after seeing it finally got component functionality. Here's a list I'm seeing of major things missing (feel free to educate me if these do exist):

1- Edit Metadata in playlist view. Available in the Windows version under Prefs > Display > Columns UI > Playlist View > Allow mouse activated inline editing. This is a huge one since it's essentially impossible to easily and quickly tag metadata otherwise.

2- Assign default keys to media control features. By default, every music player out there has the following keys mapped:
Play/pause: Space
Next track: Right arrow
Previous track: Left arrow

3- Additional built-in column options: Composer, Album Artist (Not Artist/Album), Sample Rate, Year, Comment

4- Repeat and Shuffle buttons on the main toolbar next to the other controls instead of just a drop down menu in the upper right

5- Changing font size for playlist. Available in the Windows version under Prefs > Display > Columns UI > Colors & Fonts

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: foo_vis_spectrum_analyzer
Last post by Osiris665 -
Hi, this is a great component and it has really come a long way since you started development!

One small request / question since perhaps I missed a setting that already does what I'm looking for:
Is there a way to choose where in the DSP chain the analysis happens? I would love to have the analysis happen before application  of any DSPs in the chain as a configurable behavior.

Thanks!

It's your opinion, and that's my opinion. We must respect to different opinions. Please be more polite.
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but there is no requirement that it should be respected. You continually profer statements and opinions that are completely contrary to the perceived wisdom on this and most other forums without any evidence that makes any kind of sense to the majority. Of course you are entitled to your opinion but please don't continue to try to convince others that your opinion is more valid than that of the majority.

I'm not trying to convince others, thank you.

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: NEW ESLyric v0.5 - an alternative lyric show component
Last post by sveakul -
You're right, mine was a bit out of date. And again, my track title is fine. It doesn't have anything in parenthesis that needs to be removed. It's Genius.com which adds the romanization to the title on their site. Now, I'm not sure if this actually affects the search from ESLyric, but I think it does. Maybe it's checking for exact matches?
You still have not said if you've actually TRIED toggling the field processing operation I indicated, and if and how it affects your results.

I use the plugin almost 100% for streams only, and of course how a particular station is parsing the metadata it sends for any particular song is going to matter, making me a bad test subject, especially as all I collect are lyrics with romanized characters.  The developer always.beta would be the perfect one to respond here;  you could also take the question over to the ESlyric github forum, where he is much more active than here.
