General - (fb2k) / Loading songs over VPN
Last post by kosta88 -
I'm using F2K over VPN to connect to Windows/Samba share to play FLAC files.
Loading a song takes quite a while. Maybe a second slower than on an iPhone X doing the same thing with FLACbox.
The real problem begins when I try to select more files to play, for instance with Enqueue in Foobar, or by just pressing enter to load them. Each of the files takes couple of seconds to get added into foobar. Imagine what happens if I press enter on 500 selected files... Very inefficient. I would have no problem if the files were to queue at once, but really load info ("processing") took place before they play or on load.

Can this behavior be changed?

Support - (fb2k) / Re: add freq scale to spectrogram?
Last post by j7n -
With the bottom end cut off the spectrogram is more visually appealing in a player. At normal FFT sizes the bottom end is large ugly interpolated pixels, or the top turns into long streaks when FFT is increased. I hope the spectrogram can be made "multi-resolution" where the low end extension is analyzed with a bigger FFT and combined into the same picture (like in Izotope RX but with fewer "steps" for performance). But I have no clue how hard this is to do. If you do add a scale, make it barely visible (just a few dots or font color without much contrast against the background).
3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: Spider Monkey Panel (foo_spider_monkey_panel)

I want to find meta value(first value) by name.

According to the documentation.
I need to...
1. Check if there are matched name in the meta. if yes, go to step 2.
2. Find out how many meta in it.
3. Loop through the meta(s) to find the idx numbers for the name
4. Use the idx to get the Value out.

Is there any better way to doing this?
General - (fb2k) / Re: consecutive pipe processes as one encoder (without temp file %s)
Last post by yetanotherid -
If you copied and pasted them, did you include the space at the beginning? ie
 /d /c c:\progra~1\foobar2000\encoders\ffmpeg.exe.....
There's a space before the first forward slash.

Or maybe use the full file path in quotation marks. For me it'd be
 /d /c "c:\program files\foobar2000\encoders\ffmpeg.exe"
I'm not good with command line problems. Someone else may have a better idea. I gave some of those command lines to someone running Win7 a while back and he said they worked. I'm running XP, but I can at least demonstrate they work for me with a few fb2k console screenshots.

I specified m4a as the output extension for the QAAC piping, and cmd.exe as the encoder, and fb2k adds the full path to cmd.exe to the command line.

FLAC in oga chained into multitrack file can be solution.

Yes. but it's not as well supported as ordinary FLAC files.

As for chapters, Matroska chapter timestamp has nanoseconds precision internally, so it's more than enough.
MP4 QuickTime style chapters are described in media timescale (usually equal to samplerate) so it's sample accurate.
MP4 Nero style chapters are in 100 nanoseconds precision, so it's also enough.
So, both of them have enough accuracy as for container format specification.

However, what we see everywhere is a "simple chapter format" descrbed at and, which uses only 3 decimal places (implies millisecond precision).
So it's more about tooling and input format.
