Support - (fb2k) / Decoding failure (Security error)
Last post by Vittorio -

Since last week I cannot listen to my favorite radio station.

Right after playback starts I get the error:
Code: [Select]
Decoding failure at 0:02.438 (Security error):

It happens to foobar 1.3.17 and 1.4 b3
Windows Media Player stops playing the playlist after one or two seconds.
And VLC keeps playing with occasional lags.

This may not be a foobar issue, since other players also fail, but maybe someone has an idea or hint about what is going wrong here.

Here is a link to the radio station (Deluxe Music) with M3U and PLS playlists (at the bottom).

I really hope someone can help me out here.

Anyway I will write a mail to the webmaster and state the problem.
You are not the only one who asked about it... Let's hope this can be done in v 1.4 final :)

GoaLitiuM, if you wish to give a shot to my modfied version of Minibar its latest version has configurable frame rate and it stops screen updates when playback is paused or stopped.
You ask then for an old foobar's behavior, present I think before v 1.0 or 1.1.

Currently the only way to revive it is to install foo_run ( ). It has predefined function for opening directories and it opens several folders at once when marked files come from different ones. Usage is not convenient - at least of of box. You need to do a rightclick on your files on playlist and then to go to "Run service -> Open Directory". But you can make it bit easier by adding your own keyboard shortcut to this function...
Have a look here:
I don't think so, as searching for "order" returns information about order of checking metadata fields for certain variables when one is not present...

Add all trhose files to a single playlist. Then you can mark all affected files on the playlist, right click on them and choose "Tagging -> Reload info from file(s)".

That's why people have hopes in all kinds of gambling because the chance is not zero.
However, it is not an excuse to dismiss the importance of blind tests.

For those who think retesting similar things are waste of time, those lengthy flame wars, circular reasoning and unlimited excuses to avoid blind tests in this and other forums not only time-wasting, but also disgusting.

I'd be happy if HA adopts the Bayes approach as the new standard though, but of course, it is useful only if people are honest, or the test design is hard to cheat. For this reason I am also interested in learning spectrogram faking techniques :))
General - (fb2k) / DATE does not show YEAR tag
Last post by _johnny7 -
I am new to foobar2000 and happy to have finally made the step. I am currently adding year-tags to my mp3 library of classical music. However, foobar does not show them. At first, I tried to substitute the date-column with a year-column until I realized the year-tag of mp3tag corresponds to the date-tag of foobar. Now, after a restart and re-initializing the media library, foobar still does not show the year in the properties dialogue or a column.
What am I doing wrong? Any help is very much appreciated.

EDIT: Okay, this is strange. For mp3-files I've just added to the library, the year is displayed perfectly. I edited the tags with mp3tag and chose to let the "last modified"-date intact. So foobar apparently does not detect new tag fields from files that do not have a newer "last modified"-date. How can I force it to re-read the whole library?
EDIT2: Can I remove/delete the library, restart foobar, add it again and my statistics are preserved?
