How to decode XMA files in Foobar2000
I have been trying for years, to try to play and convert xma files in foobar2000, and i havent been able to do so.

I have followed all of the instructions i was given and downloaded multiple utilities to try to convert them to wav, but none of them have worked.

Can anyone help me?

Is that the same as the "XM/XMZ" mentioned at https://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_dumb ?

NO, it is rather from Xbox 360. I doubt it is possible - at least not for all files. Looks like this enforces some DRM, available only when playing files on a console, from game files.

It is possible, using foo_input_vgmstream, which uses FFmpeg for the XMA decoding.

Could you upload short XMA sample that does not work for you somewhere?

It seems like every XMA file that i try to play has issues in foobar, but i dont have any problems with xwb files.
