Support - (fb2k) / Re: foobar2000 v1.6.5 - v. 1.6.9 Album Art Viewer do not update Cover Art
Last post by Snowknight26 -
I'm not sure if this is related to any of the existing artwork loading issues reported earlier, so let's add this to the pile.

If you are playing a track in a folder where no folder.jpg resides, if you add a folder.jpg to the directory while a track is playing, the new artwork isn't displayed, even if you change the currently highlighted track to another one (that will show the artwork) then back to the currently playing track. Stopping playback and restarting it is required to reload the newly-added folder.jpg.

You should be using try/catch as per the docs...

Note: use try/catch to handle invalid queries. An empty handle list will be returned if the query is valid but there are no results.

Obviously it's not necessary for hard coded safe queries like rating IS 5 but if you're accepting user input or metadata read from files, you should err on the side of caution.

General Audio / Re: MP3Gain Advice
Last post by DVDdoug -
There's no harm in leaving them as-is.  You probably know that MP3Gain is a lossless change.    I don't know the exact details but it just changes some kind of "amplification" field in the MP3 header, leaving the actual MP3 audio data untouched.

Quote
on newer MP3's the adjustment isn't the same (ie it's relatively louder)
It's also a "finer" adjustment (1/10th of a dB?).    MP3Gain can only make 1.5dB adjustments because of limitations of the MP3 format.

General Audio / MP3Gain Advice
Last post by captainsensible -
I've used MP3GAIN successfully for a LONG time but given that it hasn't been updated in years I figure it;s time to change to something like FOOBAR2000 for REPLAYGAIN adjustment. My dilemma, I have over 90000 MP3's that I've modified with MP3GAIN and when I use FOOBAR2000 on newer MP3's the adjustment isn't the same (ie it's relatively louder).  So my question is, what's the best way to completely switch over to FOOBAR2000? Should I run MP3GAIN Undo on all my files and then apply FB2000 REPLAYGAIN on all of them? Or should I just apply FB2000 RG on them as they are right now?

Hi @abc95086,

you can change the fonts in georgia-reborn-main.js starting in line 47 to line 57 and replace them with each font family name.
You can use the top menu Rating function when a song plays to manually give a rating and create an auto-playlist to display the tracks with various ratings.
I don't have and use last.fm account and don't scrobble but maybe the loved tracks auto-playlist is for last.fm loved tracks...

Edit: So I dug into the loved tracks a little deeper, it's not supported in this theme to manually love/unlove tracks, but mark2003 has already created this function.
This can be implemented into the theme, but right now I have more important priorities to finish...

Thanks for reply, Can I ask which font use at lower bar and playlist?
Besides this when I click the artist name link at playlist it show : (I already get the newest version from github)

General Audio / Re: Future of Audio Codecs and Acoustic Transparency Threshold
Last post by knutinh -
I don't know information theory well enough to say if it is possible to define a hard minimum on how small a file could possibly be represented.
If you take a typical 128 kbit/s MP3 (yes it has been through a lossy procedure), then whatever is in that file can of course be compressed down to 128 kbit/s - you got the proof in front of you....
That seems right, still I would claim that it is not very relevant.

I would like to have a all of my CDs backed up in a lossless manner. If I can do that with 4:1 compression rather than 2:1 compression, that would be a 2:1 improvement in disk and bandwidth usage.

Most of those songs are (hopefully) pure PCM, never having been encoded as mp3 in between the musician performaing and the spinning disk in my basement.

Similar with lossless streaming: having lossless streaming from Spotify would be a (minor) assurance. Not sure that it is super important to me personally. But being able to to that at 384kbps rather than 7-800kbps would make it less restricting. For this to make much sense, the music should never have been coded to/from mp3 anywhere upstream.
