Maybe it is bit off topic, but... Why when I came here to see today's last answer (given by Case) I see this above quick reply window and below last message in thread:
Warning: this topic has not been posted in for at least 120 days.
Unless you're sure you want to reply, please consider starting a new topic.
?? Is there something broken within the forum engine?

And it disappeared after I posted above message.
In what form do you want to exactly show that BPM? Where, in which place? I created myself a custom column named BPM with code $meta(BPM) (Preferences / Display / Default User Interface / Playlist View) . Of course in my case in plugin config I have chosen to write BPM values to tag called simply BPM. If you call it TEMPO you just replace my BPM with TEMPO in code for column. You can try use also %bpm% or %tempo% but I am not sure if it will work or not. Reading tags (function $meta( ) will always work. You can put it also into your status bar or window title bar (Preferences / Display / Default User Interface / fields "Window title", and "Status bar").

But if you want just that manual tap button to be visible all the time, then I am afraid that you have no option to do that. Easiest way to access it would be to bind a keybaord shortcut to appear that button on request or to bind kb shortcut to execute automatic BPM calculation process (Preferences / Keyboard shortcuts, look for "[context] / BPM Detection" and its subsequent commands).

Remember that in Preferences / Display / Context Menu you can also edit commands that you have under right mouse button (choose them with checkboxes). You can remove those unnecessary for you and keep there only functions like manual and automatic BPM calculation (section "BPM Detection)...
I would need for it to show within FooBar2000 continuously for BPM organization.  I have over 10,000 songs within my library.

There is an DSP plug-in made by Case especially for that slow initialing digital Receivers. Just install it, place it in your foobar2000 DSP-Chain and be happy. Download it at

Yes, it does.  I use it when using WASAPI Exclusive Mode.

Ok i think i got it this time :) Had to add a direct reference to "Microsoft.Xml.Serialization.GeneratedAssembly.CTDBResponseSerializer()" instead of creating 'XmlSerializer(typeof(CTDBResponse))'.
Support - (fb2k) / WEBM radio streams not supported?
Last post by sveakul -
Using FB2K 1.3.17 on Windows 7SP1:

While .webm wrapped files will play, trying to play this WEBM radio stream fails with the error "Unable to open item for playback (Object is not seekable)":

Adding the extension to the FFmpeg Decoder Wrapper with a http://*.webm  mask also fails with same error.  The same stream plays fine on Winamp when sending the WEBM extension to the in_ffsox.dll plugin, which uses FFmpeg (codec used shows as vorbis).  Thanks for any insight!
I've gotten many MP3 files with ID3v1 and sometimes ID3v2 tags written in an 8-bit character encoding with non-ASCII characters.

How do I specify this encoding in fb2k so that these tags could be read and displayed correctly?

Fb2k assumes some default codepage for decoding the characters. Maybe even takes this from system settings for the fallback ANSI codepage. However, these files were not written on my system, so this does not match. Would be nice to be able to specify the character encoding rules (probably, on per-folder basis, as the codepages actually vary, got at least Western European and Cyrillic). A less convenient solution would be to rewrite the files with Unicode tags — here the problem would be with readonly media like CD or network drives, for which reading the files with the specific encoding would do the trick but the modification might be complex or impossible. However, any advice on the tooling fit for the purpose (read 8-bit tags in a specific encoding and rewrite in Unicode) is also welcome.
