General - (fb2k) / Re: FFmpeg Decoder Wrapper (foo_input_ffmpeg) passthrough output
Last post by gorman -
I would very much like to see the passthrough option in Foobar for all Dolby and DTS signals (DTSHDMA, TrueHD, DTS96/24 old-lossy ones and all others).
As far as Dolby Digital, DTS and DTS 96/24, you can get passthrough by NOT installing AC3 and DTS decoders in foobar2000 and using AudioMuxer and its "Convert AC3/DTS to SPDIF Wav/Flac" function. It encapsulate the AC3/DTS content in a WAV file you can then compress to FLAC, in order to properly tag it.

foobar2000 decodes the FLAC and leaves the result untouched, sending it bitperfect to your AVR. Obviously you need to use WASAPI output and leave fb2k volume at 100%.

Which is pretty much what I'd like to find a way to do with FFmpeg Decoder Wrapper for object based surround content. Because while DTS-HD MA and TrueHD can be decoded losslessly (so I think, at least) the object based surround extensions of Atmos and DTS-X are completely lost in the process, currently.

Total Commander has an option to define which filetypes will you copy. In this case, in "Only files of this type" field enter *.wv and *.jpg if you have album art, or whichever other extension, and it will copy everything with these extensions, leaving out everything else.

yes the jump is funky. i'll investigate.
Can you describe the backspace ? can't you edit the search text with (it deletes the previous char) or it doesnt search when you hit the backspace button ?

Hm, that's weird. For me, backspace doesn't work at all. I'm on a Mac in Parallels, but it should be transparently mapping "delete" to Backspace. Delete (i.e. forward delete) does work - i.e. back arrow and then delete!

For Windows 11 users, deskband will not work with new taskbar. Luckily there is a way to get back taskbar from Windows 10 (and many other useful options) with ExplorerPatcher program (free and open-source). It is available here and an example guide here.
After that your Windows 11 can look like this:

On the latest version of Windows 10, the deskband appears pretty much in the middle of the taskbar, and if I switch to Floating Window mode, I can see that's because there's a lot of empty space on the right side of it. Is there any way to get rid of that/change the size or position of the deskband in Docked mode, so that it's actually docked in the right-hand corner of the taskbar?.

Reserved space is for peakmeter which I forgot to turn on by default, so, right-click deskband, select settings, go to peakmeter section, then visibility and switch it to "Yes"
