General - (fb2k) / Re: Global Hotkey Keyboard Shortcut isn't Global (YouTube takes precedent)
Last post by MaxDread -
I use Chrome and following the instructions to change the flag - as per the article you link to - worked a treat. 

All sorted and many thanks to you both for the help. 

Bit off topic but kind of related... I would love it if I could launch Foobar with my play button.  IE - Foobar is closed completely, I press play, and it opens the program and starts playing music.  Is that possible?  If it has to be a combination of keys that could work too, although just play would be the ideal... 

Thanks again

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: Eole, a SMP/ColumnUI theme
Last post by anamorphic -
is it possible to change these frequencies as shown in the photo?
By the looks of it you'd have to edit 'themes\eole\js\WSHnowplaying.js' in a decent text editor and find around line #102 that looks like this -

Code: [Select]
allinfos: fb.TitleFormat((globalProperties.use_ratings_file_tags ? "$meta(rating)" : "%rating%") + " ^^ $if2(%title%,) ^^ $if2(%artist%,) ^^ $if(%album%,  |  %album%,) ^^ $if2(%date%,?) ^^ %codec% ^^ $if2(%play_count%,0) ^^ $if(%codec_profile%, | %codec_profile%)$if(%bitrate%, | %bitrate%K)"),

Add the other tech info fields you want to the part that just says %codec% (these parts in between ^^ use standard title formatting).

For an example, I added %__encoding%, %__bitspersample%, %samplerate%, and $caps(%channels%) at the end, etc-

Code: [Select]
allinfos: fb.TitleFormat((globalProperties.use_ratings_file_tags ? "$meta(rating)" : "%rating%") + " ^^ $if2(%title%,) ^^ $if2(%artist%,) ^^ $if(%album%,  |  %album%,) ^^ $if2(%date%,?) ^^ %__encoding% %codec% [%__bitspersample% Bit ]%samplerate% Hz ^^ $if2(%play_count%,0) ^^ $if(%codec_profile%, %codec_profile%)$if(%bitrate%, %bitrate% kbps) $caps(%channels%)"),

When done, save the file and mouse over the panel in Eole, hold Shift key > right-click > Reload, and hopefully you got it right. You'll have to experiment a bit playing various file types to see how it displays, because for some strange reason the string order does not match the display order (%play_count% shows up last) - so if you move things around, perhaps keep the string in the same order.

CUETools / Re: CUETools Profiles
Last post by Porcus -
149 of 268. Not surprised.

I don't think I ever found out why pregaps even existed.

CDs were originally intended to have 2 seconds gap between tracks (if you wanted continuous music, then the "index" separation was for that ...)  and so all tracks would have a two-seconds "index 0". If you would program a player to play, say, track 3 and then 5 and then 4, it would at the end of track 3 jump to track 1 index 1 (not index 0).


(I caught many more with the AccurateRip ID. dBpoweramp writes those tags, and then CUETools can recognize the CD even without cuesheet.)
CUETools may be able to use the AccurateRip ID's in the tags, but I doubt many of the other tools will, like MusicBrainz for instance, and probably most other tagging programs that look up album information based on the album layout (although I haven't actually tried it).
I am not sure what tools will count track 1 index 0 at all if they use the table of contents. But if they do, you use CUETools to create a cuesheet with that pregap.

... how many of which were due to a pregap of 00:00.32?

Last post by ArhangeL -
Can you try enabling "crash on playback error" in the preferences > advanced section (just search for it at the top) and then trigger the crash again. please submit report and then copy and paste the report in to your reply.

I enabled crash on playback error but there is no new logs after crashes in folder with crash reports.

But thanks for help i fink i found source of the problem. It was plugin foo_out_asio+dsd 0.1.1 after updating it to version 0.1.5 everithing working fine for now.

General Audio / Re: Categorizing music by genre
Last post by ktf -
I agree with some here that division into genres is something quite personal and most of the time will not agree with what others would do. I rarely use the genre differentiation to walk my collection, but for those times I want to, I have only a few broad genres: Classical - Electronic - Jazz - Metal - Pop - Rock - Soundtrack. Classical is to me an obvious misnomer, but 'orchestral' doesn't fit either as there is chamber music in it as well, and as most people use this misnomer anyway, I do too.

A good organization in the directory hierarchy helps me to find what I'm looking for more quickly
Currently, I organize music by first character of artist name as the first directory layer, followed by the artist - album combination as the second layer and in case of a album with multiple disc, discnumber as the third layer. But then again, this is like genre, very much a personal preference
