The reproduction it's not so reliable because sometimes
the problem doesn't show up.

I will do some testing to try and reproduce it consistently
so we will have some more clues, hopefully.

So can you reliably reproduce it? Perhaps you could send me your config file (or export to an FCL file) and tell me which column you're editing, and what you're changing the display script to.
Ogg Vorbis - General / Re: Car Radio - OGG Vorbis Support?
Last post by sanskrit44 -
vorbis has been my lossy codec of choice for so many years, but you are right about android devices. with opus getting more and more popular, i hoped for a wide range of radios offering opus support. this to me seemed much more realistic than an ogg car radio in 2018. after all, the status of opus (hardware) is even more exotic than ogg ever was i think :)

i guess i will concentrate on a classic car radio with support for flac & high sdcard capacities then. this seems way more practical than a smartphone in combination.

concerning the lack of gapless playback, it is indeed a plague, especially when listening to (seamless) audiobooks.

thinking about what is important for me when looking for a new classic car radio:

+ should not be too expensive (under 100euros)
+ vorbis or opus codec support (incl tags)
+ good handling (intuitive way of selecting files/folders) / nice arrangment of buttons (skip, seek, mute)
+ clean interface / screen (no fancy blinking stuff, option to turn off ->> light on resources)

would be nice to have: gapless playback

well, that's it i think :)

I'd normally agree, but I'm working with a 7-year old Dell laptop that has no official support for anything beyond Windows 8. Even 8.1 is not officially supported, but I gave it a try anyway, because I had to upgrade to a bigger hard drive, and figured if I was going to reinstall my OS, why not try something newer, especially since 7 is nearing its end. I won't attempt to install 10 on here, though, because there are no Dell Windows 10 drivers for my model, and no official manufacturer Windows 10 driver for my WiFi card, which is a deal-breaker.

I'm sorry that I failed to find a link, but recent discussion on this site gave hope that there might be a Linux version at some time in the future. There might not. But at least it is not ruled out.

Until then, as just said... Wine.

Thank you for your reply. I'd tried messing with the registry key before to no avail. However, the bit about "registers itself" made me think there might be a related option in foobar2000's prefs that I hadn't tried. Sure enough, there is a checkbox, "Register supported file formats on startup". I checked that off, and now it seems to be working properly! No more dialog whenever I double click on a file in Windows Explorer. Now I feel a little silly that I hadn't tried that checkbox a long time ago.
